Testimonials

I had been struggling to receive accurate legal advice in relation to Citizenship in my own personal circumstances until I contacted with Mitchell Simmons. I was extremely impressed by his dedication in his approach to our initial consultation, especially:

  • The preparation and complete consideration of personal circumstances relating to my particular case prior to the consultation.
  • Thorough research into the personal circumstances involved in my case during the consultation in order to fully understand the situation and come out with the best strategy.
  • A broad perspective of various outcomes to my situation (e.g.: including political situations)
  • Corroboration of the advice provided with facts to support the outcomes (E.g.: focusing on previous tribunal cases with circumstances similar to mine).

Mitchell’s dedication and guidance has certainly given me confidence in his ability to handle my application with professionalism and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any person seeking detailed and personal migration advice.

Citizenship advice -

Over the past 10 years we have formed a strong professional relationship with Catherine and her team in many different areas. As our business grows and develops in the corporate arena MSM Legal works diligently with us to ensure our corporate contracts and associated documentation are regularly reviewed and compliant. Catherine also established our family trust (whilst travelling through the outback with intermittent phone range) and with her legal knowledge, together, we have successfully achieved two debt recoveries. Catherine’s integrity and experience gave us comfort in also entrusting our personal Estate Planning to be taken care of. Having MSM Legal as our lawyers gives us personal confidence and business strength.

MSM Legal arranged probate for me as an Executor of a will and their service delivery was excellent. I also engaged them to prepare a will revision for an elderly relative and this was arranged with care and sensitivity to her absolute satisfaction. My previous dealings with MSM Legal staff in regard to migration advice for some of my clients has been professional and expedient and I am pleased to be able to recommend them.

Probate -

I was referred to Catherine through one of the most trusted advisors in my life, my accountant. I asked him if he knew a reliable, honest and direct lawyer who could assist me and he wasn’t wrong when he suggested Catherine and the team at MSM Legal. From my first meeting with Catherine it was easy to deal with her, it was fluent and she was very accommodating. She met with me and told me what to expect, what I’d pay and what I needed to do and the relationship followed that exact path. I found her communication very upfront and consistent and never felt that I didn’t know where things were up too. She managed my legal affairs with confidence and I had no doubt she was going to achieve the outcome I desired. Catherine was easy to communicate with and her response time was prompt. Catherine came highly recommended to me and it’s easy to see why. If you’re looking for someone who is experienced, gets the job done and makes the process simple from start to finish then MSM Legal and Catherine are your go-to team.

We had sent our two children from Toronto, Canada to study medicine in Australia without realising that they would build their families here. Luckily we have chosen the right professionals to help us to obtain our PR status in Australia smoothly to live with our children and their spouses. At MSM Legal, Natalie and her staff have been extremely responsive and efficient to ensure that our visa application process could be as smooth as possible and in time for us to take care of our daughter during her first pregnancy in Melbourne. We highly recommend MSM Legal to others.

During years of a prolonged & complex overseas adoption process, I was recommended Ms Catherine Follett of MSM Legal by another family with a similar problem. Catherine had achieved success for them. Catherine has used smart and  innovative ways to  tackle our problem. While we are not at the end of the saga yet, I am pleased to say that now we too are progressing along beautifully. MSM have been professional and friendly at all times, and have been prompt and accurate in all correspondence. Catherine has been approachable, supportive, friendly, and warm.

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.

Permanent Residency - Dr Ilyas

MSM Legal helped me gain permanent residency.

They organised all legal matters including contacting people for statements and letters.

MSM legal communicated well throughout the process, as English is my second language they made it easy to understand every step of the way.

I am grateful for their help and would highly recommend MSM Legal.

Permanent Residency - Name withheld on request

I will be forever grateful that I approached MSM Legal to help me with what seemed like an impossible task – to obtain a humanitarian rescue visa for a man I was helping in another country.

His life was in danger because he had been helping others and he needed visas for his family as well.

The situation seemed hopeless and I did not expect to succeed but Alex Robinson, at MSM Legal, is an experienced immigration lawyer and her professional and thoughtful approach, and her calm and caring style, helped me to keep going.

We had to draft long and complex statements using emails, texts and internet messaging services but Alex went ‘above and beyond’ what I would normally expect of a lawyer to make sure that the statements were as accurate and detailed as possible.

Alex was flexible and made herself available out of hours when necessary to get the job done.

I am delighted to be able to say that in the end, against all my expectations, we were successful – and we secured visas for five people.

We are all very grateful and I am very happy to recommend MSM Legal’s work to anyone who needs caring and effective immigration legal work.

The news of our new status – Permanent Residents of Australia has just hit home! This news has been surreal to me.

Mitch did an awesome job. His work was highly professional.

My kids and I are now permanent residents! All thanks to your devoted service and sincere legal advice.

I would not hesitate to recommend your expertise to my friends and family who would need migration legal services.

Mitch is the best!

Permanent Residency - Name withheld on request

My wife was initially declined her partner visa. She was declined due to a lack of knowledge on my behalf and a lack of understanding from the assessor who viewed her visa application. This caused me to seek professional help and I was referred to MSM Legal.

MSM Legal was able to guide me through the whole appeal process and represent my wife and I during the tribunal. Alexandra was extremely professional and was able to present a very strong case to the tribunal. The appeal was successful and my wife is in Australia now.

MSM Legal always kept me informed during the whole process and always answered any inquiries I had promptly. MSM Legal was compassionate and understanding and showed a level of professionalism which made my experience with them very enjoyable. The level of service which was provided by MSM Legal definitely went by my expectations.

I would definitely recommend my friends, family and colleagues to speak to MSM Legal and make use of their services.

I would like to especially mention Alexandra who was able to go above and beyond my expectations with the level of service she provided my wife and I. She was definitely a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to any future dealings with MSM Legal.

Partner Visa - Tony N.

Our child visas were denied due to some very bad advice received from various different immigration agents and some poor decisions we made along the way. The case had become extremely difficult and the chances of us succeeding was very low.

However, the team at MSM Legal put every resource into our case.

We live 2 hours out of Adelaide but they made us feel like they were always close at hand whenever we needed information. Their communication, attention to detail and dedication was simply amazing.

Thanks to the skills and knowledge of MSM Legal we successfully had the visa decision overturned at AAT.

This would not have happened without the dedication of the team, especially from Alex, her dedication to our case is beyond what we would ever expect from anyone and we will always be thankful for what she has accomplished for us.

I would highly advise anyone seeking Immigration advice to make MSM Legal the first phone call you make.

Child Visa - Anthony & Ching-Kuei

I have used MSM legal for both my permanent residency and citizenship applications.

In both cases the process went very smoothly. It was very pleasant to experience the high level of professionalism and efficiency Alexandra and her team demonstrated during the entire process.

I would highly recommend MSM Legal to others.

PR and Citizenship - Pieter

I used MSM Legal for my TSS visa process. I worked with Alexandra Robinson and I have to say, she made it extremely straightforward by taking me through each step and making everything easy to understand. No question was ever too big or too small! My visa application was turned around very quickly and I think this is solely due to MSM Legal and Alex.

I have since received assistance from Alex about my visa in light of the COVID-19 epidemic. I can wholeheartedly say I would only ever use Alex and MSM Legal for my visa requirements, including permanent residency and hopefully citizenship.

Alex has been phenomenal and I would recommend anyone looking at any visa option to speak with MSM Legal as they will guide you through the process with honesty, respect and transparency every step of the way. I am truly grateful to Alex and am living the life I always dreamed of thanks to her help!

I was very amazed at how this firm was very professional and attentive. One of my friends recommended me. I sent an email to them explaining my case and they responded. I felt that they were really concerned about my immigration case. After I decided to work with them, my dear agent Natalie was assigned to my case. She was very helpful to me throughout our whole process. The service I had gained was far beyond what I have paid. They have saved lots of time for me. I have received permanent residence without any problems. I want to thank Natalie for her amazing personality and endless patience.

Offshore Partner Visa -

MSM Legal are very nice and friendly people. My migration agents, Alex Robinson and Catherine Follett, helped me with my husband’s Prospective Marriage visa application which was granted within 10 months due to the amount of hard work and time put in. They supported us throughout the whole time. When the visa was granted, my husband and I were very excited as we were expecting a baby and he was able to come to Australia just before the baby was born. MSM Legal are fantastic people to work with.
