I was referred to you; you listened to my story without judging me or criticising me. You were compassionate about my case and willing to go to the extreme for me. I was amazed, surprised, overwhelmed, joyful, and glad when I got my leave to remain in less than a month after submitting my documents. Your words of encouragement, professionalism, honesty and knowledge gave me confidence, hope and peace of mind. I am extremely grateful. Thank you for giving me hope, thank for you wiping away my tears and thank you for listening and acting.
It has been a long journey to get here, Graeme, and it has been a great comfort to have you by my side provide such excellent counsel. I will be forever grateful. I’ll certainly recommend you to anyone who needs help with immigration matters.
