“I want to say that I appreciate the freedom you have given to me through your skills and hard work.”

As soon as they heard about my situation, they took immediate measure on my case. This involved one lawyer coming to the police station to bargain whilst the other lawyer drafting legal documents seeking judicial review and interim injunction at New Zealand High Court. In a miracle and 4 hours later, New Zealand immigration made a decision to release me.

During a subsequent interview and being accompanied by my lawyers, New Zealand Immigration Compliance Operation has decided to allow me 12 months for making application for work permit and permanent residence, virtually making me a free man. I am grateful of the help from the firm.

“I express my sincere gratitude for the wondrous job, expertise and hard work.”

It was a difficult experience for me since I had previously approached various lawyers and advisers for my deportation liability. Therefore I even felt frustrated about the small chance of success to regularise my immigration status and obtain a visa. When I consulted with the firm, I just felt probably I should try again since they really made a comprehensive assessment of my case, advised me accordingly and guided me every step of the way.

Happily, Elcel Nerida represented me in the successful deportation humanitarian appeal. The Immigration and Protection Tribunal ordered a grant of an open 12-month work visa for me. I firmly believe that the firm played a crucial role in my immigration journey with their intensive research, complex analysis on my case and effective approach towards obtaining positive results. It just embodies how broad and professional they are in their field.
