Community Involvement

I was indeed very lucky to find Kamaljit, right when my whole life had turned upside down and I ran into an immigration trouble due to my abusive marital relationship. I don’t think I would ever be able to find enough words to express my gratitude for Kamaljit and her team for all that they did to help me get my Permanent Residence. It was a long road since our first meeting in 2015 when there seemed no light at the end of the tunnel. My struggle would not have turned into a success without Kamaljit. She through her in depth knowledge, extensive experience in handling immigration law and most importantly her compassionate behaviour towards my situation got me to the finish line. It was indeed a blessing to have her in all those crucial times when I was ready to melt. Kamaljit, please never underestimate the comfort you provide by the way you partner with your clients. That’s what distinguishes you. I would and highly recommend you whenever I can. It’s been an absolute pleasure knowing you and working with you.
