Should I choose a migration agent or an immigration lawyer?
Getting the visa process right is important from the very beginning, so it is sometimes worth getting professional advice. In Australia, only Registered Migration Agents can provide immigration assistance. With the team at Estrin Saul Lawyers (Western Australia's largest immigration law firm), you are in safe hands knowing that we are not only Registered Migration Agents but also lawyers admitted to the Supreme Courts of several states. Our immigration lawyers and agents provide you with clear and pragmatic advice from the start of the process to save you the unnecessary expense and delay of putting things right further down the line.
Pricing Estrin Saul Lawyers generally work on fixed fee agreements. Our fees depend on the complexity of your matter and the time involved. Our first step is usually an initial consultation with our lawyers and consist of:
- a one hour meeting to discuss your situation;
- a review of your case;
- advice on your options;
- a cost estimate of any further work that needs to be done.
Following the consultation, Estrin Saul Lawyers will generally send you a fee estimate so you know what you are likely to spend.
