Client Feedback

Arjun Chopra

These guys are amazing. I had a really complicated case which Sonia helped me out with, and she was one of the few immigration lawyers who had the time and patience to understand my ordeal. When you have good experiences like these you understand the privilege and luxury with respect to having legal help on immigration despite the opportunity to do it by yourself. Don't bat an eyelid you can trust them with your business.

I saw this site in Facebook and I read all reviews are great and it was “INDEED”. We really losing hope but Ms Sonia give us a hope that she can professionally help us with our problem sponsoring spouse. They really knows what they’re doing and it was only almost 6months for we thought it will take a year and more but because they are really good in some special cases, my husband got his PR and we’re really happy! Thanks God for all the blessings and for giving us the right choice of choosing Matkowsky Immigration Law as our lawyer. Amazing experience!

John Zhang

My brother suffers from Down’s Syndrome and CIC was concerned that his health condition might reasonably be expected to cause an excessive demand on social services in Canada. I searched online and found that Matkowsky specializes in Medical Inadmissibility case. Luckily I found the right guys. These guys worked very hard and were very productive. They gave me a very clear list of required or recommended documentations/affidavits, which made my life much easier. The final summary documentation was so comprehensive and impressive. They submitted the final package just before Christmas. After less than three weeks, I received the great news from CIC. Amazing experience!!! I highly recommend Matkowsky.
