Permanent resident for my father
Diana De la Cruz, 2023
If I could, I would score more starts! I can't say enough good things about Mary and her team (Joely). The support I received from day one was exceptional. Due to my dad's aging, I had doubts that his application would be approved because he could be a cost to the system.
Despite of what I considered a challenging case, Mary and Joely, with impeccable integrity, a high level of professionalism, strong knowledge, and unbelievable care, succeeded in getting him his PR, in time record. Thank you, Mary and Joely. There are no words to express my gratitude, and there will never be any.
Approve permanent residence for my wife and children!
Miguel Navarro, 2022
First of all thank you Mary and team I still can’t believe that my family are Permanent Residents now! My case was complicated, I made some mistakes through my process when I got my Permanent Residence 7 years ago. Because this mistakes I was told by many Lawyers and consultants that my case was imposible and that I was never going to be able to sponsor my family.
With all this negative answers I was about to move back home and just give up with my dream, but then I found couple videos of Mary on YouTube and I reached to her office. When I talked to Mary over the phone she gave me confidence and hope, that hope that I lost because what the other lawyers told me about my case, she told me that day that even that the case was going to be difficult was not impossible and she was right!
Mary and her team made an amazing job, they made a very strong humanitarian and compassion grounds application and got accepted!! every lawyer I talked to before Mary told me that this was impossible, they told me that I was going to be deported, but Mary and her team made it Possible and my family had a chance to stay in Canada and apply to get their Permanent Residence Status ! After few months of waiting we finally got the email we were waiting for the IRCC approved my wife and kids Permanent Residence! I’m so grateful to had Mary and her team on my side helping me to make this dream come true.
It was priceless to see my kids reactions of happiness after telling them that their PR got approved it’s just something that I will always have in my memory, my kids yelling out loud “ we are now staying in Canada for ever” is just priceless , thank you Mary! Now that we know that we are going to stay in Canada we have new goals and new dreams and this couldn’t be happening without the help of everyone in Keyork Immigration, thanks for making this a super smooth process, thanks for always being there for us when we had questions, thanks for helping us build our future in the place we love, our new Home Canada.
Thanks Mary, thanks Sarah and Joely and all others that helped us we are always going to be grateful for the rest of our lives. Please don’t hesitate in contact them if you are in a situation like mine or if you need help with any immigration concern they are a great team!
An impossible task, obtaining permanent residency during the Covid 19 pandemic.
Rhys Davis, 2022
We thought we were facing an impossible task, gaining permanent residency during the Covid 19 pandemic.
We'd been to two different law offices, trying to get residency assistance. Both offices failed to help get me into the country, let alone aid in the permanent residency.
After the border was open, and I was visiting legally, a friend of a friend mentioned that their friends had used Mary's law offices and highly recommended them.
We were shocked at how easy it was to work with Mary's team. From the first consult we were provided with detailed pricing, and an estimated timeline for completion.
After meeting with the initial consultant, we decided to work with Mary's team, as they seemed much more knowledgeable than the other offices we'd worked with.
We had the pleasure of working with Annie Ye, who skillfully guided us through the application process. She let us know exactly what to do, providing us with a detailed checklist outlining when we needed to have the documents, or tasks, completed.
There were a couple times that we had a miscommunication, or we had to wait for documents from the US past the deadline, but Annie's answer was always "no problem, when can we expect them."
Looking back on the process now, it was worth every penny we spent. We bypassed a confusing and lengthy process with confidence and peace of mind, knowing that we had a great team behind us.
We would highly recommend Mary's team to anyone seeking residency in Canada.
They managed to get us through the whole process in less than a year.
Khrystyna Stepyuk, 2022
I would like to thanks Mary and Zakia with all my heart. Me and my husband were struggling for years with our immigration papers. Mary and her team managed to help us to go through the whole process in less than a year.
They explained to us all the difficulties in a very understandable way and developed a strategy suitable for our case. They were honest and supportive throughout the process They are strong professionals with kind hearts. When I was going through very difficult times at the end of the process Mary patiently supported me and helped me arrange all needed documents and explained everything that was not clear for me.
Now we are 100% satisfied with the final result.
Daniel Maldonado, 2022
Me and my wife are fully happy to had went through my permanent residence process with Mary Keyork. Mary and her team helped us during the whole process and guided us in the best possible way for us to go over every step.
They made an excellent and strong file for us to don't have any issues and we are more than happy to had chose them for this. We totally recommend her to work with. They were always in contact with us and kept us on date for everything. Now we are 100% satisfied with the final result.
Permanent residence and it has just been approved!
Emilio Dosal, 2021
I worked with Zakia Griffin on my case for Permanent Residence & it has just been approved! Keyork Immigration Law is incredible; always up to date with everything immigration, explain everything in great detail, always there to help whenever you are lost in accumulating & signing paperwork, but most importantly, they care & work very hard to make the process as fast & cost efficient as possible.
I highly suggest you go with Keyork Immigration Law!
Huge thank you to Zakia Griffin for her amazing work on my case!
The best decision my wife and I could have made
Shaun and Kristina Pearson, 2021
When i first came to Canada and we was on the search for an immigration lawyer i contacted Four or Five lawyers and we had a Free consultation with all of them and we made our choice after we had talked to all of them..I have to say that as soon as we had our consultation with Mary Keyork we was immediately drawn to her.In that consultation she talked us through everything possible and answered everything that we had to ask.
This was the best decision my wife and I could have possibly made. From start to finish we cannot praise her and her fellow workers enough. They sorted out everything with the minimum of fuss and all the documents and fees that were needed were made simple and clear and during the process and kept us informed of everything that we needed to know.
During my time here i have married my gorgeous fiance and we even now have an amazing son and i can honestly say that without all the help and direction that Mary and her team gave to us then none of this might not have even been possible.
We want to just end by saying a massive thank you Mary Keyorks and if anybody at all is looking for a immigration lawyer ' please look no further than Mary Keyorks ' I promise you that you will not get a better immigration lawyer.
My son has been approved for permanent residency
Maria Makino, 2020
My entire family is very pleased with the services we received from Keyork Immigration Law. We went through a lot with my son's process for permanent resident. When I got in touch with Mary, everything changed for the better.
After a few months, my son was approved to get his PR finally, 5 years of waiting time. I want to thank Mary and her team members for treating us with respect and professionalism: Zakia, Joely and other ones that I don't know their names. The success of a company is not based in one person, but on its TEAM MEMBERS. They are kind and professional peoples. "May God bless them and give them wisdom to help everyone who needs their services!!!
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!
