When a Lawyer or a Consultant has a really impressive web site it does not mean they are better then others in assisting applicants with their particular problems.

When these web sites show off an impressive team there is no evidence that these people are actually working their full time. The concern clients should have is who will actually be working on my case, the boss or the employee?

Different Law Societies in Canada have certain policies that may allow a member Lawyer to be labeled an Immigration Specialist. Always be careful to ascertain that the representative has experience in your particular area of concern. Most Law schools do not require a lawyer to take one single course in Immigration Law.

It is quite easy to confirm via the Internet if the representative is a member of a Law Society or CSIC member. Any web site that shows off a large Team and then does not name the team should send off alarm bells in your head. Click on some of the advertisements on this forum and you will notice this to be true.

Not all Lawyers are equal and neither all Canadian Society of Immigration Consultant members are equal although both types of representatives have to meet similar requirements depending on which Society they belong to.

Hiring a representative can be the best money ever spent but please do not be impressed by bells and whistles on web sites. Research and references are always the best advice for any major purchase.

This is an example of what I was referring to. This company advertizes at the top of the postings on this forum.

What is the persons name? The regulator is not called the Canadian Society of Consultants of Immigration. http://www.cicanada.com/en/menu-gauche/ci-canada/#c159

Always check references.

The Migration Expert company is a prime example, super web site they do business in three countries, they have offices in three countries wow what a site.

http://www.migrationexpert.com/canada/ This company I visited on Eglington Avenue East just east of Yonge Street.

There was no Lawyer present.
A Lawyer named on their site is not a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada or an authorized representative.
They had two normal desks with folding chairs.
They had a circular table with six computer screens with people answering the phones and giving advice.
No plants or pictures on the office walls.

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE PEOPLE.

part of the problem is that prospective PR applicants are interested in the great promises someone can make - the faster route, the guaranteed success, the inside track. All if it is garbage. If it sounds better than the information being offered on the CIC website - BEWARE. Once they have your money, what are you going to do? By the time you figure out that they did not do their job, 2 years have passed, and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

Then those people come here and complain about CIC or how they got ripped off.
