Hiring an Immigration Lawyer Toronto

Good immigration help can be hard to find! It sometimes seems that only half of the information you really need is readily available online. 

Contacting Citizenship and Immigration Canada for assistance can result in your being tied up on hold on the telephone for hours. Your friends and family, while well-meaning, may not have the best nor most accurate answers to your very important immigration questions.

Immigration is not an easy process. You need someone who is an expert in the immigration process, but who is actually working on your side and on your behalf to really give you the attention you need.

A Toronto immigration lawyer is likely the best asset you can find to help with the immigration process. However, this unfortunately is not the case with ALL immigration lawyers in Toronto.

If you work with an immigration lawyer who isn’t one of the good ones, it just ends up being a waste of time – and time is precious when you’re talking about immigration to a new country!

Luckily, we’ve put together some tips on how to find yourself the best immigration lawyer in Toronto.

Finding a good immigration lawyer in Toronto

Google it!
The beauty of the internet is that everything about any kind of business is online – the good, and the bad. An immigration lawyer’s reputation comes from happy clients, and lots of them. A dissatisfied and unhappy client is much more likely to tell others about their experiences. You can Google the lawyer’s name or law firm name to find out more about them, as well as what others are saying. Some immigration lawyers in Toronto will even have testimonials on their websites for you.

Call them!
An immigration law firm can look great on paper (or on your computer screen), but how will they really treat you in person? A receptionist will take your call – are they professional, courteous and friendly? Do they direct your call to the right person?

Ask around!
Ask anyone who might have used the Toronto immigration lawyer in the past what their experiences were like. They’d know better than anyone and would be the most likely to give you an honest answer about how they were treated.

A good immigration lawyer should never be too busy to get back to you, and should always make you feel at ease – you should feel comfortable and confident that they are working on your behalf.
