Migration lawyers to support you

Bringing People Together

We believe in a fair migration system that brings people together and provides the freedom to live and work in Australia. Australia’s migration and citizenship laws are very complex and often people suffer incredibly long delays, unnecessary expense and unjust outcomes. The key to navigating this system is to have experienced people on your side that care about your case and are prepared to go beyond and above.

Whatever situation you are in; whether you are in trouble with the authorities, looking to bring a family member into the country or have a complex or sensitive issue we are here to help.
Together we will work it out.

With over 35 years of experience in migration and administrative law, our team has completed a number of notable cases. We know that all migration matters are different; this is why it’s important to seek advice. We are well-versed in all aspects of immigration policy and offer a range of services to support your migration needs. If you have a complex migration issue and need advice from an immigration lawyer, call us to arrange the next available consultation. As migration lawyers with extensive criminal experience, we understand that it is essential to apply an evidence-based approach to your case and claims.

Expert advice and representation can make all the difference.

Caitlin White and Jiabei Qi are the best lawyers who are professional and reliable. I almost lost hope but was very lucky to have had Caitlin and Jiabei to handle my case. Without their professional help, I may not have won my appeal. I also want to say thank you to Victoria Lenton for your professional support and advice. I can't thank you all enough.
