    We would highly recommend Catherine and MSM legal as a trustworthy, supportive and caring professional immigration lawyer.

    We have also used MSM Legal in establishing our wills and will continue to use them in securing permanent residence in Australia.

  • I have been working with Mitch Simmons for the past 7 years in regards to finding the best solutions to my visa matters.  Despite my case being quite complex at multiple levels, Mitch offered good solutions based on his strong legal background and comprehensive knowledge in migration matters. This has enabled me to deal with my cases from its preliminary stages to appeal level successfully. His legal advice both verbal as well as written is carefully thought out and prepares you to take the best route available. One of his strongest assets was his representation of my case to the Immigration Department and other agencies in the form of his well-articulated written documentation.

    Due to his diligence and wonderful professional skills, Mitch offers his service beyond expectation through efficient communication, document preparations, and related advice.

    I highly recommend Mitch Simmons for any case which requires a migration agent that has the tenacity and skill-set for success.
