I am a consultant for a global strategy consulting company, and my wife is professor at the University of Sydney.
When moving to Australia, and considering selection of a law companies to help us with the process of getting a permanent residency, we considered a number of top globally known brands. Even the initial contacts with them gave us enough reasons to search elsewhere - most of the replies we received arrived 2-3 weeks after the initial enquiry.
In contrast, Gareth Lewis contacted us within 24 hours, explained to us the process and the fee structure, and provided a clear data collection mechanism.
Throughout the process (a rather complex one due to our particular circumstances) we were informed about the next steps, and always felt that Gareth and his team were proactive in making sure that the things were moving along.
I would strongly recommend Lewis & Bollard to anyone who is looking for reliable help in their migration.
I would like to thank Lewis & Bollard for making my dreams come true. I came to Australia as a student but soon I fell in love with the country.
My first visa with Lewis & Bollard was a 457, which was impossible to get in my view because I didn’t have any formal education for my profession. With their fantastic experience I managed to get it.
Recently we applied for 186 visa which was approved in few weeks. Thank you Lewis & Bollard for all your help in this huge success, I couldn’t have done it with you.
Now I have come down from Cloud 9 I can officially thank you and your team for all your assistance with our visa.
We are extremely excited about our future here in Australia. Thank you once again for all your help.
