How do I hire Waldman & Associates to represent me?
Please call our offices at 416-482-6501. Let the receptionist know that you wish to have a consultation with one of our lawyers. Provide some basic information about your immigration situation. Please emphasize any pressing deadlines you are aware of. Our receptionist will take your contact information and get in touch with you as soon as the next appointment is available. The consultation will happen virtually or over the phone at this time due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Following your consultation you will decide if you wish to retain our offices to assist with your immigration matters.
Is there a fee for a consultation?
Yes. The fee varies depending on which of our lawyers you meet with. Our receptionist will confirm this fee when booking your appointment. Initial consultations with Lorne Waldman are $300 and consultations with our other lawyers range from $200. When you arrive at our office, you will be able to pay this fee by credit card (VISA or Mastercard), certified cheque or money order (made out to “Lorne Waldman”), or cash.
Which lawyer will I meet with?
Our receptionist will confirm our lawyers’ availability when you contact us.
As one of the leading immigration law firms in Canada, Waldman & Associates is very selective about whom it hires. Whichever lawyer you meet with, you can rest assured that you are meeting with a talented lawyer who is committed to providing you with high quality representation.
Also, while one lawyer will be the primary person responsible for your file, we work collaboratively in the office in order to provide the best services to our clients. If your consultation is with Lorne Waldman, he will usually introduce you to the lawyer who will work with him on your file.
Do you accept drop-in appointments?
Our office is very busy. We strongly recommend that you book an appointment for a consultation. Without an appointment, we cannot guarantee that a lawyer will be available to meet with you. At this time, in person drop ins are not possible due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
How long will my consultation be?
Your consultation will be as long as is necessary to provide you with an opinion about your case. Consultations vary depending on the complexity of your case, but you can expect that the consultation will not last longer than 1 hour.
Do you represent clients who are living outside Toronto or Ontario?
Yes, we frequently represent clients across Canada and internationally.
