Lisa is knowledgeable, thorough, and always acts with the utmost honesty, integrity and professionalism. Her communication skills are extraordinary. Despite the complexity of the legal system, she has the ability to reduce the complicated to the simple in clear concise language. I am always grateful to have her in my corner.

Lisa facilitated the preparation of our residency application through our de facto relationship status. Lisa and the team showed proactiveness in helping us meet requirements and genuine empathy to understanding the nature of our personal circumstances in Mexico. They have demonstrated through not only their words but through their actions that they are committed to getting the outcome and helping us get to our family in Australia. I would not hesitate in the slightest to recommend Coleman and Greig to others, and in fact, my father has taken matters for consultation with them in the past year. Thank you to the team.
