Why CRT Legal
CRT Legal is the product of a desire to practice law differently. At its core is a passion for family and community. Being a hybrid law firm, CRT Legal is focused on providing legal services that are easily accessible to you; in an environment that you are comfortable with. What does that mean? Well, our services are mobile, and that mobility gives us the flexibility to meet with you on your terms.
We are proud of our personal service, where we accompany you on your unique journey with us. Our personal and professional experiences allow us to empathise with our clients and focus on what matters to you.
Being a hybrid law firm has practical benefits that we are proud to pass on to our clients. We embrace technology and you can communicate with us on platforms that are easily accessible to you. We value the privacy of the information that you share with us, and we have created dedicated client portals for you to feel confident that your information is being provided to us in the most secure way. CRT Legal knows that many of the legal services we provide require private and confidential information from you and you should be confident in providing that to us.
When you work with us, you will develop a personal relationship with us. We understand that you are busy, and we are flexible in how we can communicate with you. We meet clients virtually (zoom, teams etc..), on the phone or in person.
CRT Legal is making a dedicated effort to be paper light, when possible, and by choosing to meet clients in environments outside of a traditional law firm setting; we can price our services competitively and provide a tailored price point for the work we do for you.
We offer different pricing structures and prefer to work on a flat fee, so you have certainty over the financial investment you are making with us.
What Our Clients Say About Us
Karen and her team are top quality! Our conjugal visa was complicated and we were facing a refusal, CRT legal took the time to understand all details of our application and and were very supportive all the way through this process. I can’t say enough good things about Karen and her team at CRT legal, and because of their hard work and dedication to immigration law we received our application approval!! Thank you again, All the Best!! Albert+Cristina.
I would highly recommend Karen and CRT Legal to handle your immigration needs. I sought out an immigration lawyer for assistance with the permanent residency process in Canada. I began my journey at the beginning of Covid in 2020 so I was concerned the process may be lengthened and if I was faced with any anomalies, I felt I wouldn’t be able to deal with them. From our first engagement right to the end I found Karen to be professional and thorough and always kept me in the loop on the status of my case. I had to return to Ireland for some time whilst my application was in progress, even when in different countries communication was consistent. As the application progressed, I encountered some issues. I felt that Karen had excellent knowledge on how to approach them. I was lucky to receive my permanent residency, ultimately because of Karen. I am so grateful for all her hard work and support throughout.
Our experience with Karen & her team at CRT was simply wonderful from start to finish!! They took the stress out of the PR process & steered us in the right direction at every turn (even through the unprecedented COVID period).
With the level of care provided, it's evident that at CRT, you are not just another number, as you may be with a larger firm.
I will continue to sing from the rooftops to anyone that will listen, that Karen & CRT should be your first stop for any Immigration needs!!

Excellent Service! Ms. Karen Howley is extremely helpful. Always does her best to help out. I got refused, then went to see Ms. Karen. They re-opened my application and i got extension work permit....its all because of her. She is really good and very kind to me.

Attaining PR status in Canada was a very important goal for me, Karen understood this importance, and worked diligently to help me achieve this goal, she did this while also patiently calming my worries and anxieties by keeping me well informed throughout the process and promptly answering my calls and emails. I’m very great full for her hard work.
