I love to
Play Tennis, travel, philosophy and technology

When not working in Law I might be found
Having coffee with my close friends, some of whom work for me, chatting about life.

My greatest/proudest achievement
Helping 1000s of people with their visa issues and raising our 2 kids with my awesome wife.

Songs you might find on my iTunes
ACDC and Led Zeppelin when jogging. Jazz when sipping wine.

Critical to my law practice experience and success
Understanding what our clients want and knowing how to deliver. And treating your staff like family because they are.

What the firm means to me
VisaPlace is an extension of who I am, my own satisfaction and fulfilment is tied to its success.

As seen on

"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."
