We are now officially Canadians!
Nadya, Alvaro, Valeria and Luis Felip
July 2019, London, Ontario
Hi Mary. Hope you are well. Please note we attended our citizenship ceremony. We are now officially Canadians!!!! ❣️????????
I want to take this opportunity not only to thank you but also make you aware that this wouldn't have been possible without you. You were someone who helped us go through one of the most scary moments in our lives. You supported us, you fought for us and made our lives in Canada possible. Please feel proud of who you are, what you do and how far you have come in your career.
We can testify that you are a great human being and of course an amazing and professional lawyer. We were blessed when you took our case and even though it was almost no chances of winning, you told us up front our possibilities and said I will fight till the last moment and you did! May God bless you, may God keeps guiding you and may you always remain this kind human, who helps others and fights for others that are in desperate need of help.
We thank you for everything you have done for our family from the bottom of our hearts.
Permanent residence card renewal and travel document
Narinee and Vicken Halajian. 2017
Mary Keyork provided accurate information throughout the process. I would say especially at the beginning of the immigration process, as she was able to guide us on the correct path to apply for a renewal of my Father’s PR card. Without her information and guidance, I doubt the process would have been as smooth. Mary Keyork was always available to answer questions in all manner of communication mediums. The easiest and quickest way was via email but we also met face to face and via Skype as well. Emails were also answered in a timely manner with great advice and information. My family and I would certainly recommend her to others who are in need of immigration services
Best lawyer whom you can entrust
Tareq Shahwan, 2015
I think Mary Keyork is the best lawyer whom you can entrust. She has a great price, plus you have the opportunity to pay the fees in installments. Moreover, she is professional, knowledgeable and pro-active and most importantly available when needed. I highly recommend her for everyone who has any immigration issue.
Deportation stopped in Canada
Meghmik Aghourian, 2008
Mary Keyork is a motivated and passionate immigration lawyer. She is always ready to help, and does not stop until she succeeds. My family and I had an ongoing struggled with immigration Canada for years. As a result I met many lawyers and worked closely with some of them. I met Mary during the peak of our struggle. What distinguished Mary from the start is her sense of compassion.
During our worst days Mary was by our side every step of the way. Her compassion, professionalism, and her encouragements helped us through very dark days. She was always available to listen and give us consultations. Her down to earth manner of conduct made it easy for us to interact with her, and her good judgments and knowledge of the laws helped us make the right decisions.
Same sex spousal sponsorship approved
My spouse and I were seeking for me to become a legal resident and were worried about how to do so on our own, so when I researched I had found Mary Keyork. I read all the amazing reviews and figured I should try it out myself so I could finally start my life in Canada.
Mary and her assistant Tyna were very informing, helped me through the steps and advised me through the process of each application. I am an anxious person, but Mary made me feel confident in the upcoming results by being very professional and organized. I am now a resident of Canada and could not be happier with the results!
Canada sponsorship approved
Mrs. Mirza, from Dubai. 2012
From the very first conversation I had with Mary, where we consulted with her about our case, I had a good feeling about her. She was frank, honest and professional, but not at all “hungry for the sale”, nor did she treat us like just another case or make us false promises. We were particularly nervous about our previous declined application and a motor vehicle issue/accident in my husband driving records, which led to complications in our application. Mary explained everything to us honestly and accurately, and even went well and beyond the consultation to provide us with specific details. The best part about having Mary onboard was her proactiveness. Her bare minimum seems to be to go above and beyond. This is what makes her a pro at what she does. There is nothing more frustrating than paying for a service and receiving lax, dawdling responses, I can say this never happened with Mary and her team. Every single email was responded to in detail and Mary never stops till you are satisfied with her answer. After living outside Canada for 7 years, My husband and I, with our 2 children will be moving home. This means the world to us and I can surely, confidently say that it is because we chose Mary to handle our case. She is doing a wonderful service to her countrymen and families all over the world. We are thankful to her for her interest and hard work on our case.
Sponsorship approved in Canada
Blossom and Noah, 2012
After becoming frustrated with our original lawyer over his lack of urgency, we contacted and hired Mary to handle our case. She was prompt, courteous and advised us professionally as questions arose. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received our application package was prepared within less than two weeks.
The format and cover letter that Mary’s team put together was impressive. I had no doubt after reviewing the package that we would not have any issues with our application. In fact, we were approved within 4 months and enjoying living together in Canada today. Thank you Mary!
Spousal sponsorship - Successful alternative dispute resolution (ADR)
M. and A. Naser, from Toronto, Ontario. 2013
My husband and I used Mary Keyork’s legal services for our Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) hearing. We previously submitted a spousal sponsorship application for my husband but he was refused in April of this year at the interview. We were very shocked and disappointed to say the least! We are married and our relationship is real so we took it for granted that our application would automatically be approved. Big Mistake! We appealed the decision of course but did not want to take anything for granted this time. We contacted Mary Keyork and she explained the process of appeal and our options. Luckily we were fortunate enough to qualify for the ADR hearing. With the support and professional work ethics of Mary, and her assistant Maua, we were successful in having our appeal approved in October. We would not have been adequately prepared for this hearing without their help and could have faced the possibly of being denied again. Mary prepared us for the hearing and made us feel at ease. In retrospect we regret not hiring Mary from the beginning to look after our spousal sponsorship application. We could have saved ourselves a lot of disappointment and time! It seems that love is not enough when it comes to Immigration and you cannot take anything for granted. We would definitely recommend the professional services of Mary Keyork to anyone that requires any Immigration help. Take it from us who learned the hard way, do it right the first time and you will save yourself a lot of grief! Mary and Maua, thank you so much for your help! We look forward to finally being able to move on with our lives in the coming months. We could not have done it without you! All the Best
Humanitarian and compassionate application approved
Juliana and Family, from Toronto, Ontario. 2013
Hi Mary, how are you? We are wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, lots of joy, happiness and blessings!!!
First of all,we have no enough words to express our feelings right now, anything we say would not be sufficient to thank you for what you have done for us! We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation for everything you did, your argumentation, your professionalism, all the attention and care you demonstrated towards us!!! We finally became Residents Permanents of this amazing country after a long long journey of 11 years and you had one of the most important job done for this accomplishment: YOU EXPLAINED EVERYTHING IN A CLEAR, ORGANIZED AND, of course, PROFESSIONAL WAY that our lives, everything we have built here were so well exposed and detailed that resulted in the approval of our file. We always will be thankful for everything and, certainly, this is the best present that we could have asked for Christmas! Thank you so much! Blessings
Visitor visa for lebanese citizen issued!
Nada & Annette, 2017
Dear Mary, The best thing we decided to do is to start the application for a temporary resident visa for my friend Souad with you. These kind of things can be so confusing, a lot of documents and questions but you made everything seem so easy. The file was so organized, professional and perfectly completed. I know without a doubt that we would not have managed to find our way through the Immigration Maze without you.
Thank you once again for all your advice, help, continual guidance and persistence in assisting us. We have been fortunate enough to have had the benefit of your expertise and knowledge. Souad will come visit soon, we will make sure to pass by! Thank you for making it possible!
Visitor visa issued from Armenia
J.K, from Armenia, 2016
Mary Keyork submitted my visitor visa application to the Embassy in Russia. I obtained the visa in 3 months. Mary Keyork is very professional and works very hard. She is very dedicated to her job and she always does her best to assist. The first day that I saw the way that she handles a file, I knew that I would get the visa. She was very honest in the paperwork and very correct.
I got the visitor visa and I feel very happy working with Mary. I recommend her services to anybody that has immigration problems because in the end she will always get the job done.
Parental sponsorship approved following appeal
Priyanthi, from Calgary, Alberta. 2018
I have a very good news for you. My parents and my brother were granted visa to enter to Canada today. I just want to share the good news with you by talking to you. We all are so thankful to you for helping us out with this case. This whole process was, at times, difficult and painful for us. We are very glad that we were in good hands. You have done a tremendous job Mary. We are so grateful to you. Thank you again for all the hard work. We are so thankful again to you for making this happen for us. There are no words to express how happy we are today. Have a great day!
