Our Expertise

Estrin Saul Lawyers are one of the few law firms in Western Australia and South Australia specialising in immigration law.

We are modern and dynamic experts in our field and pride ourselves on clear, concise and competent solutions for your desired immigration outcomes. With over 50 years’ combined experience in immigration law, we are well-placed to provide you with expert, yet practical immigration advice.

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, particularly with more complex matters.

With the team at Estrin Saul Lawyers, you are in safe hands knowing that we are leaders in immigration law, registered migration agents and lawyers admitted to the Supreme Courts of several states.

Our specialists 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.

We are bound by lawyers' rules and the Migration Agents Registration Authority's Code of Conduct (for RMAs). We recommend you download a copy here to find out about your rights and our obligations.


When you seek advice from a migration agent who is also a lawyer, confidential communications are protected by "Legal Professional Privilege", so you can speak freely and without fear of disclosure.

Are lawyers more expensive than migration agents?

Lawyers are not necessarily more expensive than migration agents. At Estrin Saul Lawyers, we generally work on a fixed fee basis meaning you will have a clear understanding of our charges at every step of the process. Click HERE for our pricing structure.
