Client Testimonials

I adopted a very sweet boy from Honduras whose father was murdered and was living in absolute poverty in Honduras. I wished to sponsor him for his application for permanent residence in Canada, The IRCC process is a jungle and even people with legal training, such as myself, find it all a maze that is impossible to navigate on your own. Hence, I retained Shoshana Green to assist me. Her and her team were absolutely an incredible delight to work with. Shoshana and her assistant, Judy Yuen, know the IRCC system and the complex laws pertaining to it, to perfection.

What is most impressive is the almost instantaneous responses they provide to all requests and communications. An example. Last October, I wrote an email to Judy Yuen after 10 pm. I got a response the next day at 7.24 am. Judy was in the office at a time many people are just getting up! This type of service is very comforting given that the IRCC process is both long and arduous.

I have no hesitation in recommending Green and Spiegel for anyone seeking assistance with IRCC matters. I have never received better service from anyone. Plus their fees are very reasonable. In short, they are as good as it gets.

And, yes, my son received his permanent residence papers.


We were looking for an Immigration Law firm to help us with our immigration needs. I found Green and Spiegel on google and based on their google reviews I decided to partner with them. The decision to go with them was absolutely fruitful. Under the able leadership of Jonathan Green, we were able to successfully achieve all our immigration needs. Jonathan and Erica have immense knowledge on all Canadian immigration rules and policies and they guided, supported and helped us to secure multiple positive LMIA applications. I highly recommend Green and Spiegel Law Firm to all employers and individuals who are struggling with their immigration needs. From a cost perspective, they are highly competitive.

Thank you Jonathan, Erica and Vanessa for all the help and guidance that you have extended to us. I appreciate our partnership and look forward to many years working with you all.

All the best to you and your team Jonathan.

I can only share the best things about Green and Spiegel. They are indeed one of the best immigration firms out there. From day one of handling my case right from work permit to PR, I have been given the most professional services. The team is very knowledgeable, they know what they are doing, response time is great, and communication is accurate. We always felt that we are in safe hands dealing with this company. Once we assign them the work, then the team very efficiently takes over and we don’t have to worry about anything. I highly appreciated the step by step guidance, how excellent is the quality of work they execute and how holistic is the services rendered (They take charge of each step once the work has been assigned.) I would like to thank Alexandra Cole, Tania Saqib, Carolina Perdomo who handled my Work permit. And a very special shout out to Shifa Ahmad and Sonia Sidhu who got my PR approved in record time. I appreciate the patience with which they made all the case files, their attention to details and high standards of working, truly exceptional. I just cannot thank them enough. Choosing Green and Spiegel was the best decision and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants flawless execution of their immigration needs.

Before reaching immigration law firm “Green and Spiegel” I had contacted several others law firms around Toronto and Ottawa. Everyone considered my case difficult and improbable because my tourist visa had been rejected. Everyone recommended that I make another request and were very skeptical about the outcome. They were not in favor of legal proceedings and thought that it should be long, tedious and lost in advance. One of the lawyers would even dissuade me from filing a complaint because according to him I will be banned, prohibited from traveling to Canada. In short, by contacting the Green and Spiegel Law Firm and after my interview with Mr. Emre Esensoy, I found a glimmer of hope. He reviewed my file and understood that my case had been treated in a laconic way, the immigration officer had not looked at all the evidence that I had attached to my application and had understood that reapplying would not have brought more info from what I had already provided. He decided to file a complaint to the federal government and after 3 months I won my case and the federal government decided to reopen my immigration file and finally granted me the visitor visa. I denote here the spirit of analysis, the rigor and the professionalism that Emre and his team showed during the treatment of my case. I strongly recommend this firm which, in my humble opinion, does not favor easy cases with ready-made solutions over sensible cases like mine. They will always take the time to scrupulously examine your case and will offer the most suitable suggestions to increase your chances to win if not guarantee a victory in the end of the process. I would like to thank you for the time and the quality of work, be sure that I, my family and my friends will come back.

I went to Green & Spiegel for help with what seemed like an impossible task. My family’s immigration case was very complex and i had tried a few other lawyers before going to them. My family’s sponsorship case had already been rejected by the time i went to Green and Spiegel. I met with Shoshana Green a few times. She took her time and listened to every detail of the case…did a lot of research and then provided me an exact road-map of how she wanted to approach the case. She and her team provided an estimated time frame when she thought the process would complete and then went to work on it immediately once i gave them the go ahead. The process took some time but we had success at every step. What seemed like an impossible task was completed by her team in a very professional way. They kept me abreast of all updates and walked me and my family through the process every step of the way. There’s no better team to have on your side if you have an immigration related issue. I am immensely appreciative of their efforts and would highly recommend them.
