I would like to share my great experience working with Lawyer Michael Yoon. I am originally from Russia and I had been living for 4 years in Canada.... I decided to move to New Zealand 2 years ago. It wasn’t a spontaneous decision. My oldest brother lived in Christchurch and he was a resident. I was on a tourist visa when I arrived in New Zealand. Initially, I applied for skilled immigration through the job offer. My brother had a Russian lawyer who had a good reputation and seemed to be very knowledgeable. I don’t want to go into details but that ‘Russian lawyer’ gave me the wrong advice and made my stay illegal in New Zealand. Luckily, I had already met my partner. When my work visa got declined and I became illegal in the country, my partner’s mother advised Michael Yoon. In short, Michael Yoon managed to extend my tourist visa then get me a work partnership visa and after that my residency. I want to thank Michael Yoon for the incredible support and professional advice. He was very honest and gave me all possible scenarios and solutions for my difficult case. He replied to my email very fast (within an hour). Because of Michael Yoon, I can finally move on with my life. I am very grateful that I met Michael Yoon. I would definitely recommend Michael Yoon as an immigration lawyer who is hardworking, honest professional who genuinely wants to help you without overcharging.read more
