I came to Jennifer’s office very nervous about my status in Canada. I had gone to school here and finished my degree. I’d made a very simple mistake of not signing my application for my Post Graduate Work Permit before I sent it in. Also, my study permit expired at that moment. I was in a time crunch to be able to start my career here in Canada. I had met with someone else whose information just didn’t seem right to me and so I decided to look online and found Jennifer. I asked a family friend who works in the industry what they thought of Jennifer and she highly recommended her. I’m glad that I followed her advice to come and have a consultation with Jennifer.

Jennifer is very sharp and knows what she’s doing. I felt comfortable with her and the proposal she outlined made sense. For the first time, I saw a light at the end of the tunnel and knew that there were options for me. This was my first real experience with a lawyer and I’ve heard others who had a bad experience with a lawyer but I would hire Jennifer again. She and her team are friendly and welcoming and yet very professional. They made me feel relaxed and comfortable and I trusted them.

When it was time for me to apply for my permanent residency under the Canadian Experience Class, they were well prepared and gave me a list of what I needed to do. They were always responsive when I asked them a question and I felt like they outlined the options for me and informed me but the decision and control always rested with me. I felt empowered that I was making good decisions for my future based on solid advice. Throughout the process, they were on top of my file and making sure that I was kept in the loop. My work permit was expiring in a few months and Jennifer made sure to have a meeting with me to discuss my options and plan out what we needed to do so I could keep working while we waited for the paperwork. Thankfully, none of that was needed because I received my permanent residency before my status was expired.

Would I recommend Jennifer and her team to others? I already have. I definitely got the service I expected. Yes, lawyers cost money, but they saved me time and I didn’t have to worry all the time. I received timely email updates from the staff and answers to my questions were prompt and well informed. I appreciated that I got a personally signed Christmas card from everyone I had worked with in the office. It meant a lot to me that they took the time to write a personal note in a busy time of year.

I am now a permanent resident and I can look forward to having my family come and visit me in my new home here in Canada. Thank you Jennifer and your team for all your hard work on my behalf.
