We have extensive experience in immigration litigation, including refugee hearings and appeals; detention reviews and admissibility hearings; sponsorship appeals (including marriage refusals and medical inadmissibility appeals); and are often before the Federal Court of Canada, and seeking judicial review or the remedy of mandamus. We have extensive experience in assisting on immigration applications, including sponsorship, applications for permanent residence (Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker, and Provincial Nominee Programs).

We handle divorce, child custody and spousal support and all contested or uncontested family law issues. We can handle criminal charges, from assault to driving offenses. We handle trials and appeals.
