About Us

Haag Walker Lawyers is located in the central business district of Melbourne, Australia.

We are an Australian immigration law firm with a reputation for delivering personal, innovative and responsive immigration solutions.

Memberships and Accreditations

Our memberships and accreditations include:

  • Law Council of Australia 
  • Law Institute of Victoria 
  • Law Council of Australia - Migration Law Committee - Federal Litigation and Dispute Resolution Section

Dual Regulation

Unlike many other migration service providers, our lawyers are both Australian immigration lawyers and registered migration agents. This means that our practice is subject to regulation by the Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) and the Migration Agents Registration Authority (MARA), so you can be sure we will apply the highest level of legal knowledge, professional standards and ethics to your matter.

Legal Professional Privilege  

Clients of Haag Walker Lawyers are able to claim the right to legal professional privilege. This means that clients' lawful communications with us are confidential and protected from exposure in most situations (a few limited exceptions exist).

Clients of migration agents are not entitled to claim that their communications with their migration agent are protected from disclosure by legal professional privilege.

By retaining the migration services of an experienced Australian immigration lawyer, you gain privacy protection for your lawful communications by your right to claim that your communications with our firm are protected from exposure by legal professional privilege.
