About CRT Legal


CRT Legal is a hybrid law firm providing practical advice and tailored solutions to clients. We operate from physical locations as well as virtually to accommodate our client and staff needs. CRT Legal was initially created to assist clients with Canadian immigration matters. Our global reach together with our commitment to our physical communities means that our services have expanded, as have our client base.

We look forward to many years of continued growth with all our clients.

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

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.
Cecile Sanchez : PR, Live-In Caregiver
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!!
Nuala Mac Munn
We hired Karen as our real estate lawyer and she took care of all of the paperwork quickly and efficiently. We had to leave the province before our house was sold and she was proactive in ensuring we left certain documents with her rather than waiting until they were needed (and possibly packed or lost). That was a blessing because our cross-country move during COVID was chaotic, Karen made sure her part was calm. She explained the processes and was available for Zoom calls when convenient for us, despite the time difference. I wish it was possible for us to use her in buying our new home! Her team was friendly and incredibly prompt, as well. We couldn't recommend her services highly enough.
Janice Fogarty
I finally chose Karen because I couldn't find anyone that could do such magic, excellent and fast track application's (Work Permit, Travel Document And Permanent Resident). Wonderful customer service packed with smiles and 24/7 reliable. She's just the Super Best out of the rest.
Daniel Ameyaw : Open Work Permit and PR
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.
