Paula took the time to understand our situation, discussed our goals and provided the guidance we needed. Paula’s knowledge, communication style and skill in summarising complex information combined with frequent feedback and updates far exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t have placed our trust in more capable hands. We highly recommend Paula’s services.
We chose Paula as we saw that she had lived and worked in Australia and thought she would have a good understanding of the system. We weren’t wrong! Paula was fantastic and put our minds at ease straight away with her extensive knowledge of the procedures. Paula did all our paperwork and was always at the other end of a phone or would happily meet up to talk through our concerns. Paula still sent us other info that she thought may have been helpful after we emigrated. I cannot recommend Paula highly enough and have passed on her details to 2 other friends in the UK who are thinking of emigrating. Paula took the stress out of the situation and made the whole process easy! Thanks Paula!!!
I would happily recommend Paula to anyone. From the start, she was extremely helpful, giving me all the information I needed and making it clear what was needed. It was a real piece of mind to me know that my application was in her hands as she handled the whole submission right from the beginning to the end . If I had any questions she was always available and there to help; giving me updates on my application and assuaging any fears I had. If you want an expert and also someone who you feel comfortable with I can't recommend Paula enough.
To cut a very long story short, involving corruption and dodgy dealings , i decided to use a solicitor i had heard about in Australia, Paula McGeown. Dang was stuck in Manila, so Paula arranged her 3rd tourist visa immediately, and flew to meet Dang in Manila to help her with the arrangements, 5 days later Dang was back in Australia. I recommend that anybody trying to get a partner to Australia from the Philippines, DON'T try to do it yourself, give Paula a ring and save yourself heaps of money, stress and time. I can't thank you enough, on behalf of Dang and myself, thanks.
In 2012 I was distraught as Australian Immigration Authorities had informed me I could not remain in Australia due to the type of visa I was on. I rang Paula who within a few seconds put my mind at ease with her professional expertise and knowledge of immigration law and her willingness to offer me immediate assistance. I found Paula exceedingly warm and friendly. Her service was excellent therefore I would highly recommend her to anyone.
"I love that you took the time to learn about my business before presenting a really useful strategic plan that ended up being just what we needed. Thank you."
