benefit of having been on both sides of the immigration process. Karen
qualified as an Immigration Solicitor in England and Wales before eventually
immigrating to Alberta, Canada. After several years working as a Barrister
& Solicitor in Alberta, CRT Legal was created to focus exclusively on
Canadian Immigration and citizenship matters.
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. The firm’s name was created from the names of Karen’s three children and embodies the firm’s emphasis on the family in the immigration process and the holistic approach that we take to your immigration story.
Being a virtual law firm, CRT Legal is focused on providing immigration services that are easily accessible to you; in an environment that you are comfortable with. What does that mean? Well, our immigration services are mobile, and that mobility gives us the flexibility to meet with you on your terms.
We pride ourselves on the provision of a personal service, where we accompany you on your immigration journey. Making the decision to move to another country, whether you are doing so temporarily or permanently, is a life changing decision. We have been on this journey too and we want to travel with you and your immigration story unfolds.
Being a virtual 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 immigration applications that we work on look for 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 over skype, on the phone or in person
CRT Legal is making a dedicated effort to be paperless, 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.
