If you are in the United States and you are looking to immigrate to Canada, then you may be looking for a Canadian immigration attorney or consultant to assist you in your immigration application. The below are some tips to keep in mind when choosing a Canadian immigration attorney that is right for you.
- Qualifications and Authority to Practice Canadian Immigration Law
In Canada, both immigration attorneys and immigration consultants are authorized to practice immigration law. Generally, immigration attorneys are highly qualified, authorized to practice in all domains of immigration law, and are highly regulated by a law regulator such as the Law Society of Ontario. Immigration consultants are not as regulated as immigration attorneys in providing immigration law services. It is important that you determine whether your representative is a licensed Canadian attorney or immigration consultant due to the differences in regulation and oversight between the two types of professionals. Falcon Law PC is proud to be a law firm with a team of highly experienced immigration attorneys and paralegals. Falcon Law PC is regulated by the Law Society of Ontario.
- Specialization in United States to Canada Immigration Law
While there are hundreds of immigration attorneys, law firms, and consultants in Canada, it is important to find an immigration representative which is well versed and experienced in assisting residents and businesses from the United States. Dealing with United States to Canada immigration law requires a nuanced approach and specific strategies tailored to this form of immigration. There are immigration programs specifically designed for immigrants from the United States and it is important that your immigration representative is well aware of these and is in a position to provide you with the best legal advice.

- Online Presence and Google Reviews
Likely is that you will not be able to travel from the United States to Canada to visit or retain an immigration attorney. Most probably you will rely upon the online presence and Google reviews to make a decision on retaining a Canadian immigration attorney. As such, it is very important to pay close attention to the online presence of a Canadian immigration representative to ensure legitimacy and trust. Falcon Law PC is proud to have a 5-star Google review rating, along with several written reviews from our United States immigration clients. To view our Google reviews, please click here.
- Track Record and Experience
It is very important to inquire about the track record and experience of a Canadian immigration attorney working with immigrants from the United States. Canadian immigration attorneys should advise you of the number of applications which they have processed from the United States to Canada. While no Canadian immigration attorney can guarantee success in an immigration application, he or she should still be able to provide you a general idea on his or her success rate for US to Canada immigration applications. At Falcon Law PC, we are proud to have worked with hundreds of US immigrants who have successfully immigrated to Canada on temporary or permanent programs such as express entry, tourist visas, and beyond.
