When I decided to open a Canadian branch of Bright Solutions for Dyslexia, my CPA found two attorneys who could assist me. One was Evelyn Ackah. The other attorney was part of a very large, well-known law firm in Vancouver.

I spoke with both of them and chose Evelyn Ackah -- and I do not regret it.

Evelyn responds rapidly and personally, by phone or email -- even on weekends.

She explained my options in easy-to-understand layman's terms, she created everything I needed quickly, and she helped prepare me for the business immigration interview.

Everything went extremely well, and I was granted the maximum length work permit.

Evelyn Ackah's firm helped me complete that entire process within 2 months. It took the other large law firm more than 3 weeks just to schedule an initial phone call -- and I finally got their bill for that phone call AFTER I already had my work permit.

If you want fast, professional, and accurate legal service, I highly recommend Evelyn Ackah.
