Would highly recommend Katie Wren for all migration matters. She recently assisted me navigate Australia's Covid border entry restrictions. I found her to be knowledgeable, compassionate and very efficient. Her fees were very reasonable for the service she provided and she was always very responsive to my queries.


I am very thankful to Katie Wren for her expert legal advice and amazing service in helping me obtain a travel exemption recently. I had to fly to the US for a family emergency in August 2021 and had to get an exemption to Australia’s outbound travel restrictions on very short notice. Katie was able to advise me on exactly which documents I needed to obtain to explain the situation and submit in support of my travel exemption application. Katie drafted and submitted the exemption on my behalf very quickly and I received the exemption 16 hours after she applied. It was a great result and I flew to the US the very next day.

Katie’s knowledge, professionalism, and compassion for my needs were greater than I could have hoped for in such difficult circumstances. I would highly recommend Katie (and MSM Legal) to anyone needing a travel exemption or immigration/visa assistance. I am certain that I wouldn’t have been able to get the travel exemption by myself, just understanding the grounds for applying is hard enough. I can’t thank Katie Wren and the MSM Legal team enough!

Catherine Follett was an amazing help to my partner and I while we were applying for the 820 Partner Visa. She was super informative and she really helped reduce a lot of the stress that came with the visa process. She probably answered over 50 of my silly questions with patience and understanding, and my visa was granted in just a few short months! I would highly recommend MSM Legal to anyone who is looking for a little help with their Partner Visa application. There is a lot of mixed information online, and it was extremely helpful to get the facts straight from someone with Catherine’s extensive legal knowledge and experience.

As part of my ongoing Visa Strategy, I spoke with Katie Wren, who is supporting me with PR on my employer sponsored visa. Katie was extremely responsive in helping me navigate any updates to my current visa and the impact it would have. Katie was able to translate the challenging immigration law and terminology into simple advice for my employer and I. Katie was really clear with the timescales and gave me extremely detailed advice that has helped with my visa. I have recommended Katie to my friend who is now engaging with her for his visa support.

MSM legal and Katie Wren were very professional and diligent with helping me gain my permanent residency in Australia. Katie was prompt with her responses and knowledgeable on the the residency process. I appreciated Katie's attention to detail and great communication with keeping me update on where my application was in processing. I would recommend MSM Legal to anyone that is trying to immigrate to Australia.
