It was an absolutely positive experience working with AHWC. My initial consultation was with Seamus Taaffe who provided exceptional and accurate information based on my case. My case was then handed over to the appropriate lawyer who happened to be Patrick Douglas. Patrick was excellent throughout the process. He was professional, knowledgeable, communicative, answered any questions I had and even set up a quick appointment when I requested it urgently. Patrick was an absolute pleasure to work with. Paralegal Carlota Jiminez who provided assistance was helpful as well. I would recommend AHWC to anyone who is looking to apply for their visa

My experience with AHWC Immigration Law has been quite amazing. Charisse Ongoco managed my case and she has been nothing short of outstanding. My visa was granted in record time and I couldn't be happier! Anyone out there in need of assistance with their visa process, do not hesitate to contact AHWC ASAP!

Thank you AHWC, especially Patrick who helped us through the process of applying for a Prospective Marriage Visa. We had many questions and moments of uncertainty but Patrick was there to guide us, he was professional and prompt with his communication which put us at ease. The visa was granted in just 4 months. Thank you Patrick and AHWC!
