Fadi Minawi, Managing Director, US Immigration Lawyer

Fadi Minawi, B.A. (HONS.), J.D.

I love to
Travel, watch movies, play baseball and ball hockey

When not working in Law I might be found
Relaxing on a patio or enjoying the great outdoors

My greatest/proudest achievement
Establishing and maintaining high quality of standards for US files/applications

Songs you might find on my iTunes
Wide range – David Guetta - “Titanium” The Tragically Hip - “Ahead by a Century” Duran Duran - “Come Undone”

Critical to my law practice experience and success
Using “outside the box” thinking is critical, as well as looking at a situation or application from all angles to be sure that a better avenue has not been overlooked

What the firm means to me
Helping out big corporations, small corporations, and individuals achieve their end goals. These are for the most part, life altering type of law files/applications

"VisaPlace referred us to a great law firm and great lawyers. All I can say is "thank you" for getting my visa quickly. VisaPlace knew exactly what kind of legal team could help where other's couldn't. The fees were reasonable and everything went smoothly. Thank you for everything! I would highly recommend VisaPlace and the immigration attorneys they work with to anyone wishing to move to Canada or to the US."
