Hiring a Lawyer

In order for an individual to obtain certain benefits under the Immigration Act, a Canadian lawyer may be essential for the following reasons, to:
  1. Advise about whether any benefits are available and analyse and recommend the most appropriate visa or status category to the client.
  2. Review, prepare and compile the proper application forms and documents.
  3. Make representations as necessary and provide proper advocacy in what may essentially be a contentious dispute between the client and Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
Many cases may not be that simple.  The stakes may be high and an individual will need sound and straight-forward advice.


I am a Canadian lawyer with several years experience in immigration and nationality law.  Please note that my practice in this area is now limited generally to criminal related problems.  For other Canadian immigration problems, please contact Windsor lawyer John Rokakis.

My office location, less than three minutes away from the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel, allows me to be available for representation of clients right at the border. 

As in all other matters, I provide clients with sound and honest advice when representing them in these matters.  They can rely on a resourceful advocate on their side every step of the way.
