Lawyers*: Unlike most migration agencies, we have Australian lawyers who specialise in immigration law on staff which we believe allows us to provide a superior service.  Immigration law is a highly specialised area of the law and even lawyers in law firms and QCs who hold full practising certificates are not allowed to advise on it, with some limited exceptions, unless they become registered migration agents and so submit to the regulation of the Migration Agents Registration Authority.  All of our advisers are registered migration agents, but many of them are not lawyers.  Because we are regulated by the MARA, most of our Australian lawyers do not also hold practising certificates from the legal regulator, and we have chosen not to structure ourselves as an immigration law firm, so even when you are dealing with one of our lawyers, a solicitor-client relationship will not arise, as we will explain to you in detail when you engage us.  Choosing not to be a migration law firm allows us to keep our costs down so that we charge substantially less for the same work than most migration law firms would. If your case does go to court, we can call on our networks of external lawyers to provide seamless representation.
