Direct Case Management by Attorney, Advocate or Solicitor at all Times

LawQuest attorneys are closely involved in all aspects of a case including initial intake and data collections, laying out of strategy, collating information and documentation and preparation of case forms and tracking of visa expiry dates.

Making a Difference

At LawQuest, our underlying philosophy is to always have a pro bono project in the pipeline. We believe that pro bono service is an essential element of a law firm’s professional responsibility.
