I choose to be more transparent about legal services
I don't maintain a physical office. It's just not needed in todays' world of immigration going online (for the most part)
I don't have assistants working with me (although I used to) > they cost $ which raises legal fees for clients
I use technology where possible to streamline my interactions with clients, which means I can pass on the savings of efficiency to my clients

What are typical legal immigration fees?
Read more about how much lawyer's typically charge for immigration legal services
Lawyers have typically charged on a per hour basis for their work.
Some charge flat fees.
Either way, because you're hiring them to represent you throughout the process they make sure to charge enough to make that "worth" the time and resources it will cost them just to maintain your file at their office.
That adds up to more fees for clients.

It's not always necessary and for straightforward and simple cases or for people who can't afford full legal representation but could benefit from some legal advice and services, a LIMITED SCOPE RETAINER is the answer.
That's where Valdman Law Limited Scope Retainers come in

The Security Intelligence Review Committee
I did the case on a pro bono basis. It was a complaint by a Convention refugee from Pakistan against the Canadian Security Intelligence Service for a finding that him having been a member of a political party in Pakistan, the MQM, made him inadmissible to Canada.
It was a complex case that took almost 2 years. I was successful on behalf of the client (most cases don't win at the SIRC).
The case is reported in its 2007 annual report.
You can find my reported cases on CanLii's website.
You can search the database for my name as "Silvia Valdman" but also with "Syliva" and "Waldman" as the Court has misspelled my name several times (and not corrected it in the reported case)
