Very proactive and dedicated

Michael successfully gained a work visa and then a permanent residence visa for me in Nelson, all within 5 months. He was very proactive and dedicated. It was obvious he didn't consider this 9-to-5 job, I got several emails from him in the evening and at the weekend. I'm very pleased I came to him, it was money well-spent.

We adopt a fixed fee approach instead, giving a bit more certainty to our clients about the cost involved.
