“I wanted you to know that we are grateful for your help regarding Shannon’s “TN” visa. She applied at the Sarnia border on Friday at about 3:30 P.M. The first decision was yes until they realized that Shannon had been denied at the Rainbow Bridge. They would not over-rule that decision until they realized that she had up-dated documents which provided further information. This is what saved her! Shannon flew to California on Saturday and started her new job today! We just wanted to say Thank You and felt this info might be useful in the future. Please tell Stacey we also appreciated her hard work. Thanks again.”
“Just to let you know that I got the TN renewed last Friday. They also checked my fingerprints and took photos (I can’t recall this in the prior years). The diplomas were the main thing. Thank you for all your help.”
“How are you mate? I hope fine. Any case for your future clients just mention one of my clients Allan he never gave up and just for you Michael I’ve hit the jackpot “work-wise”, I’ve found a good company and every thing fits.
