9 Questions to Ask Before You Hire an Immigration Lawyer

Immigration law is continuously evolving and requires diligence to be sure you have the most current information so you have the best chance to move to Canada and start your new life. Ackah Business Immigration Law's team provides expertise in all areas of immigration law ranging from corporate immigration to personal and family immigration matters. We provide comprehensive immigration services to clients around the world representing corporations, institutions, not for profit organizations and individual clients. As your immigration lawyers and paralegals, we provide you with timely and strategic advice relating to the constantly changing immigration laws and regulations.

How to Hire an Immigration Lawyer

Immigration law is becoming more complex and challenging every day. Immigration applications can be refused due to minor oversights and omissions that can delay or negatively impact your business or your family reunification plans. By not using a lawyer you can be putting your business and your family at risk. Ackah Business Immigration Law can help you understand your rights and understand Canadian immigration policies as they apply to your unique circumstances.

    Ackah Law offers Flat Fee Pricing for most immigration cases so you are never surprised or caught unprepared.

  2. What is your success rate?
    Our legal team works very hard on behalf of our clients, but not every immigration case has the outcome the client wants. Nevertheless, our success rate on immigration cases is so high because we carefully screen which clients we can help and only accept clients when we believe in our ability to succeed.

  3. I am not in Canada. How can we stay in contact?
    Ackah Business Immigration Law is proud of our innovative use of technology to stay in touch with clients around the globe. Many of our clients we never meet in person, yet we are able to stay in touch and work with them via email, Skype, FaceTime and other technologies. For clients in Canada, we have offices in Calgary, Toronto and Vancouver.

  4. Are you a licenced lawyer?
    As founder and managing lawyer at Ackah Business Immigration Law, Evelyn Ackah has been a practicing lawyer for over 20 years. She was first called to the Ontario bar in 1999 and to the Alberta bar in 2008.

  5. What kind of law do you specialize in?
    Ackah Law focuses solely on Canada and U.S. immigration law, and related cross-border business law, refugee law and human resources law and policy.

  6. How big is your law firm?
    We are proud of Ackah Business Immigration Law's growth since it was founded 10 years ago. Our team of lawyers and paralegals directly assist our clients, plus our support staff keeps the office functioning efficiently and smoothing.

  8. What languages do you speak?
    It is essential that a client and their lawyer can communicate effectively. At Ackah Law, we are multi-lingual. Our legal team speaks English and French, the two official languages of Canada, as well as Spanish, Twi, Tagalog and a Zimbabwean dialect. In addition, we also can work with knowledgeable translators. Our website can be translated into many languages via the Translate option in the footer.

  9. Do you provide a consultation?
    If you are interested in hiring Ackah Law for your immigration case, we ask that you contact us about your exact situation. Our intake officer will review your information, and schedule a time to discuss your unique immigration needs. At that time, we can make an assessment on whether we are your best option to help you immigrate to Canada.
