What Our Clients Have To Say

Our reputation for excellence in Australian immigration law is built on direct client contact between our principal immigration lawyer, Ms. Melissa Haag (Registered Migration Agent Number: 0000586) and our clients, as well as our delivery of effective immigration solutions specifically tailored to our clients needs and circumstances.

I had a great experience with Haag Walker Lawyers, would highly recommend them to anyone requiring assistance with visas. Melissa was extremely knowledgeable and guided me throughout the process of dependent 457 visa for my wife and transition of 457 to 186 (Permanent Residence), for both me (primary) and my wife (secondary applicant). Melissa never sets false expectations and was very precise with the processing timelines. Melissa was easy to approach and always responded to the queries at the earliest. We had a very pleasant experience through out the course of visa process. Extremely reliable and highly recommended!

Chaitanya Payasam

We have been using Haag Walker Lawyers for all our immigration work from India and the US for the past 3.5 years, and I can honestly say that the service and knowledge that we get, along with excellent processing times has been excellent throughout. Melissa has excellent knowledge and finds good solutions each time. Balancing this with a great fee structure has meant that we have been able to reduce costs by about a third and improved timelines of the previous Big 4 company we were using in the past. Highly recommended!

Haag Walker lawyers managed my and my family’s transition from a Temporary Work Skilled Visa (457) to a Skilled State Nominated Permanent Residency Visa (190) as Engineering Manager. I had found out about them through an internet search for visa agents with expert knowledge on Victorian state nominated visa. We received state nomination almost instantaneously after submission of the relevant documents. While the subsequent waiting period from submission of the visa application to allocation of a DIBP case officer was lengthy, our visa were granted without any further inquiries, once this had happened.
Melissa demonstrated a high level of professionalism, with firm knowledge about what is required – and what is not required – to be successful in the various process steps. Her focus on the bare facts and integrity of the information provided to the authorities were decisive for the quality of the submission. Above all, her reassuring way helped my family and me not to lose confidence during the final waiting period. The process to achievement of the visa grant would probably not have been straight without Melissa’s service and advice.

Michael Jansen

Highly recommend. Melissa was extremely experienced and knowledgeable, and provided multiple solutions to a particularly difficult case; As there are new changes to immigration policy, and the 457 visa has been scrapped. She was able to outline the options available. If you are in a similar situation, I would definitely recommend pursuing advice through Melissa.

Ryan Gemmel

I run a hospitality company running a number of venues in Melbourne. I have had the pleasure of working with Melissa, at Haag Walker, on a number of occasions in relation to Subclass 457 – Temporary Work (Skilled) Visa, including, Standard Business Sponsorship Application & 457 Nomination. A very professional outfit, timely and transparent in their advice and correspondence and they get results. I have had plenty of experience working with various Lawyers over the years and I would put Haag Walker Lawyers at the very top of that list.
Many thanks
Luke

Luke Delaney, Fifty Five & Workshop

We had a great experience with Haag Walker Lawyers. Melissa was amazing from start to finish – she helped us throughout the 457 process, and again for the transition to the 186, for both the primary applicant and de facto. We had trust in Melissa from the first time we met with her – she is incredibly knowledgeable and professional, she explains everything clearly and sets realistic expectations. I have already recommended her to friends, and will continue to recommend her without hesitation in the future.
