"PR in 4 MONTHS! We never thought we would get an answer from CIC that fast! Thanks to the efforts and hard work of Ed Corrigan Law office and the team, especially Selvin Mejia, I am able to reside permanently in Canada.
Mr. Corrigan was able to craft an impeccable application that we would have never been able to put together ourselves. We were extremely impressed by his extensive knowledge on immigration law, and the collective efforts of his team and their ability to think creatively outside the box. The team displayed an incredible amount of commitment and dedication to our case, and even went overboard by meeting us on several occasions past work hours.
Nicola (my spouse, Canadian Citizen) and I fell in Love in Ireland, and we decided to move to Canada in the summer of 2014. I moved here on an International Experience Canada permit, which would allow me to work in Canada for only 2 years, with no possibility of renewal. Time crept up on us and by the fall of 2015, we had no idea what we could do to keep me here.
We were referred to Ed Corrigan’s office, and within a month, we had all our documents ready for the Spousal Sponsorship. We submitted our application in the last week of December, and by April 2016, we got news that I got my permanent residence.
Had we filed the application ourselves, my work permit would have expired, leaving me unable to work and reside in Canada. And for that I am forever thankful for being referred to Ed Corrigan Law office."

"My husband and I fell in love on vacation, as many people do with travel being more frequent and accessible these days. However, we weren’t truly aware of the struggles ahead in our long journey to be united in Canada. My mom and I did our research to find a lawyer to help us with the task. We ended up choosing Ed Corrigan Citizenship and Immigration Law Office because of his recognition by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a specialist in this area of law. I wanted it done right, and it was. All the staff is friendly and very helpful. Selvin worked with us most frequently and for all of his help we are forever grateful. He always went above and beyond to make sure things were done right. It was an extremely emotionally driven process for me, and he was always very patient and good to reassure me that our hard work and the wait would pay off. It finally did and we are together thanks to their diligent efforts. We are very satisfied with the service we received and the people we met along the way. They are knowledgeable, passionate, professional, and they really care. I highly recommend using their services."

"I arrived in Canada from Europe in 2006 accompanied with my wife and daughter with the intention of becoming permanent residents. The breakdown of that relationship left my daughter without status, and led to a lengthy family court battle. Winning the right to secure her status in that venue in 2013 was the end of one conflict, but the beginning of another; I couldn’t seem to meet the requests of Immigration with the complex documentation resulting from our situation.
I realized I was well over my head and chose Mr. Corrigan to guide me through her permanent residency application. Despite the complexity of the case and the numerous obstacles in the way, Mr. Corrigan always knew the best approach and fought for our best interests with the tenacity of an Irish bulldog. I commend him for his patience and dedication, and could not recommend him more highly."

"Dear Mr Corrigan,
I am writing to express my satisfaction with the application and the submission prepared by you and your staff. I am sure you have gone over the submission with your expert eye. I believe it rightfully and very articulately explains our position and intent and at the same time argues the earlier negative decision was made due to lack of supporting documents. I came all the way to London looking for a specialist and I found one. Thanks for being so considerate and thorough."

"I have known Ed Corrigan for many years after I started my litigation career at the Department of Justice when I appeared in the Federal Court of Canada as counsel on immigration cases. I found him to be well prepared and a passionate advocate for his clients whom he represented very well."

We wanted for our son that was born in Mexico to become a canadian, we asked around and it didn't seem like it would be possible for our three year old, until someone recommended you.. (Edward Corrigan). We came to you as soon as we heard that you could help us with his immigration, we had to sponsor him, And went from all worked very well, we had his papers sooner then we expected them to. So thank you again for everything you did for us, we would definitely recommend anyone to go to Edward Corrigan."

"My case was very complex and difficult but Ed Corrigan and his staff did excellent work and in the end we won the case and I was Landed as a Permanent Resident. I greatly appreciate the skill and work that Ed Corrigan and his Law Office did on my behalf. Mr. Corrigan works tirelessly and is not afraid to touch controversial issues. His extensive knowledge of the conflict in the Middle East was paramount to my eventual success and asylum. I will be forever grateful for the work Mr. Corrigan and his team have done on my behalf."
"Edward Corrigan and Staff,
Brilliant fast and reliable service. This is the best immigration law firm that helped me sponsor my three children from Africa within two months.
Thanks to Mr. Edward C. Corrigan and staff."

"It was a honour for me to have, a person with your knowledge to represent me for a Permanent Residence Card. I could not have done it without your knowledge. Today we have technology with a computer, it is too much for an older person to do. I will be 70 years old, and technology today, is more than I can handle. I do wish that the government would understand that older people cannot deal with the modern technology of a computer. Today I am thankful, for everything that you've done to help me accomplish this government privilege to be a Resident of Canada and to renew my Permanent Residence Card. To be an American citizen is and to be a residence of Canada is more than a privilege and an honor, to me......Thank you again, Edward C Corrigan, and staff, for everything, to renew my Permanent Residence Card."
Your truly,
Charlie Ray Vogts
"We would like to thank you, for all the support and service provided by you and your law firm staff during my wife.s out of Canada permanent resident application process. You and your staff provided an excellence service. You were kind and patient enough to guide us through the entire process, to answer all our questions and provide excellence advice; we really liked and enjoyed the fact that also gave us a lot of peace of mind, that you were always available by either phone or e-mail. We know that the promptly response from the Embassy of Canada in Peru (less than three months) approving my wife Permanent Residence Application, was due to the organization and letter of presentation that you put together as part of our application file. We would like also recognized and thank Selvin Mejia for all his work, in particular for his availability by phone even after regular business hours, his advice and his support in translating all our documentation. We know who we can trust and reference Corrigan Law Firm as a very professional and responsible service. Mr. Corrigan and his team of professionals really exceeded our expectation. We highly recommend Corrigan Law and Barristers as representatives for your immigration related cases."
Thank you kindly,
Rafael Mateo Moncada and Sara Alva Lizarraga
