Immigration / Refugee Law

Our office has helped literally hundreds of persons, citizens and non-citizens, with immigration difficulties through the courts. Often, these are matters of life and death, oppression or freedom.

In this new and emerging area of law, we can offer expert legal advice and service. Whether you need a visa to enter Ireland for work, business, to join an EU spouse/partner or Irish National spouse or partner or for family reunification, we can guide and support you through the process.

We also assist with Irish Citizenship applications and applications for EU treaty rights, Long Term Residency, Habitual Residence and change of status.

In some cases we are able to assist those with no legal status to regularise their position in the country.

For employers or workers, we can also advise and assist with work permits and green card applications, renewals and appeals.
