I highly recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers, specially thanks David Brooks. He is very professional, patient, precise and efficient in the whole process. He solved my concerns perfectly. I do not think my case is easy to solve, but David tell me what to do every step of the way very methodically , I trust him a lot in the whole process. This is a very trustworthy law firm and a professional team of lawyers.

— Youming Liu, July 2022

I can’t thank Joanne and David Brooks enough for their help during the long process. I remember back in 2017 I had an initial consultation with Joanne after my self-applied visa was refused. I was devastated and lost so I consulted several lawyers to get a grasp of the reality. Joanne patiently looked through my documents, analysed my situation and offered a well-thought-out strategy. Joanne is very smart, articulate and empathetic. David was extremely helpful with the preparation. Doubts and gaps were raised clearly, emails were replied to quickly, and mountains of documents were organised perfectly. Joanne and David’s communication skills made complicated matters easy to understand and their professionalism helped me stay calm and confident throughout the interview. Again, words aren’t enough to express my gratitude for Joanne and David’s extraordinary work.

— Ya-wen Shih, August 2020

The first time I met Joanne and David, they were more than clear to me, obviously law is a profession of ways, not results, however, from my first meeting I was aware of all the possibilities could happen with my situation and even when I knew I would be putting too much at risk, there was something in Joanne and David that gave me that peace of mind and encouraged me to keep going.
I am so grateful to Joanne and David Brooks. I still do not have enough words to express my gratitude. I could not achieve my permanent residence without you. When you stuck with the best, you get the best possible outcome.

— Juan Camilo Montoya Albarracin, July 2020

Our daughter recently had her permanent residence visa cancelled and, after researching the best way to appeal this decision, we were recommended to approach Kinslor Prince Lawyers. We were immediately impressed by the professional manner in which the preliminary contact was dealt with by the firm, with a clear outline of the practical situation and the manner in which the appeal should be dealt with.
We do not hesitate to recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers in dealing with immigration matters. The efficient manner in which our case was dealt with by the firm leaves no doubt that, in cases where there is a sound basis for a positive outcome, Kinslor Prince Lawyers is well placed to obtain this.

— Pieter van Wijngaarden, August 2020

— Andrei Mirzac, April 2019

It was really a wonderful experience to deal with Mr David Prince. I am truly satisfied with his professionalism and integrity. My immigration matter was highly complicated but his expert approach, attention to detail and in-depth practical knowledge of Australian migration law made it so smooth and perfect that it was finalised by immigration department much earlier than average processing time of similar applications. I strongly recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers for an affordable, result-oriented and tailored service delivery.

— Shoaib Ishfaq, March 2019

Mr David Prince and his team at Kinslor Prince Lawyer have been very professional since the beginning. From our first consultation Mr Prince has been nothing but honest with us. He provided us with factual opinions, realistic expectations, and clear directions which made the whole process very simple to follow. Mr Prince understood our needs and sympathized with our situation which was very important to us. His paralegal team has been very patient with our case, especially at times when things were tough. Their attention to detail meant our case was well presented. Mr Prince and his team exceeded our expectations and changed our lives; our family was able to reunite 5 months ahead of schedule due to their excellent work. We would like to thank everyone at Kinslor Prince Lawyers for their hard work.

— Wendy Han, November 2018

I strongly recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers because they delivered the results I needed. Mr David Prince was truly professional. He was very calculated. He had approached the case from the start with a strategy and steered my appeal to a success. The complexities of my case made it one that is not of standard nature; the demands of which would require the legal aid of someone with the knowledge and experience like Mr David Prince and his associate Mr David Brooks. Communication was always prompt. I am happy with the result of the AAT and I have managed to get my PR visa finally.

— Leonard Lim

It always gives me great pleasure to be able to write about my experience with Kinslor Prince Lawyers.
Back in 2013, with a seemingly impossible situation to resolve, I approached a well respected lawyer in Sydney. She listened carefully and concluded with absolute certainty … “you need David Prince!”. I took her guidance, thank god, and here we are in in 2017 having been through every obstacle that was put in our path. David and his team are the lawyers that other lawyers refer people to. There cant be a higher compliment than your peers sending people to you. In other words, when you need the best, you need David Prince. With David, you’ll get exactly what you need. A carefully, highly considered approach, and strategies that only some at the top of their profession would know about or know how to execute. Arguably the most important thing you will get is honesty. How refreshing is it for someone to cut though the confusion with honest so that you know exactly where you stand, even if you’re hiding a bit from the reality, you will still be given the truth and the fact whatever they may be, because of David’s high integrity.

— Andrew Berry, July 2017

I recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers for their excellent work and service in our struggle to obtain my mother, an elderly women of 94 years of age, a medicals treatment visa to live out her days in Australia. Despite the frustration and heartache, our efforts were continuous and our persistence with Kinslor Prince Lawyers finally paid off. We fought together for a cause we believed as just, and due to the efforts of all parties, in particular Joanne Kinslor our dream of obtaining habitancy for my mother in Australia was made a reality. Thank you Joanne for your honesty, professionalism, and work ethic. We are very grateful and you will always be in my thoughts.

— Maria Dolores Alquezar, May 2017

I am writing this just want to say thank you soooo much to Joanne Kinslor and your professioal team.

Thank you so much Kinslor Prince Lawyers!

— Danielle Guo, May 2017

I just want to thank you again for the wonderful advice that you provided that day – although it was only 1 hour, it was the best $400 I have ever spent and has only totally changed my life.
Thank you again!

— Laurel Grey, September 2016

In our experience, David has been professional, extremely knowledgeable, providing good and clear advice with simple explanations (good for us lay people). The fact that we are based in Western Australia and David in Sydney did not matter at all. Importantly, David has been helpful taking our personal circumstances into account and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. As far as we are concerned, and regardless of the good results achieved in our case, David and Kinslor Prince Lawyers come highly recommended.

— Jorgen Schouten, April 2016

Joanne Kinslor and the team at Kinslor Prince Lawyers were able to take a very difficult set of facts and circumstances then present it to the Tribunal in a way that highlighted the strengths of our case and explained the weaknesses of it in a positive manner. The whole process was handed extremely professionally and the respect the firm has with the Department and the Tribunal was very reassuring. The hard work, time, and effort they put into our matter was great. We were always able to get through to someone who could answer our questions and reassure us when things weren’t good. The firm took a matter that we tried unsuccessfully to manage by ourselves and turned it around. My partner is now an Australian permanent resident and we are so glad we had Kinslor Prince on our side.

— Aaron and Magdalene, Partner Visa, December 2015

I was introduced to David Prince at a stage where my immigration matters had come to a standstill and I had little or no hope of gaining a 457 visa. There were many bumps along the way, which David had foreseen and prepared for. David and Alison were always a call or email away to answer my questions and reassure me all the right steps were taken in the application process. Having that peace of mind and knowing I was in the best hands possible gave me a lot of reassurance.
I cannot thank David and his team enough for literally changing my life. The professionalism and utmost commitment of Kinslor Prince Lawyers has enabled me to enjoy the rewards that come with the grant of a 457 visa. If you’re looking for immigration expertise, professionalism, honesty, an open door policy and attention to detail, then look no further as Kinslor Prince Lawyers are your one stop shop for immigration matters. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone who’s looking for the best representation.

We were completely satisfied with the work and professionalism of David and all the staff at Kinslor Prince Lawyers.

— David Durber, April 2015

Due to the nature and complexity of my skills assessment review case, I almost lost my hope to furthermore move forward, initially. However, after having my meeting with Joanne Kinslor, I decided to take her advice and prepare the appeal as per her instructions. During the course of the appeal preparation, I was deeply impressed by the approach and professionalism presented by her. More importantly, her expertise of properly simplifying a complicated case, led to the final favorable result.

I wish to highly recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers due to the professional legal and migration service delivered by the firm. I would like to say thank you again for all the efforts and hard work that has been contributed to my case.

When it comes to dealing with immigration matters, certainly I would like to recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers to any person.

There is no lawyer who could have done a better job than Kinslor Prince. I want to thank Mr David Prince and his assistants. They have done such a brilliant job for me. I have achieved a great result. It will make great impacts on my future.

I met with serious challenges to be able to satisfy the character requirements of Australian citizenship. I had explained my issue to the Department by myself and eventually my application was refused. I realised that I needed a lawyer to help me. I sought legal advice from a few well known firms but finally I chose Kinslor Prince Lawyers as my representatives at the Tribunal. Firstly, they are absolutely experts and not just an immigration agent. They are also sophisticated law practitioners in the area of immigration law. They offer very a reasonable price for their excellent services.

— Peter Zhang, Administrative Appeals Tribunal Appeal, April 2014

Joanne Kinslor and staff were very professional, kind and patient with me and my legal situation. I would give them 10 out of 10. I believe I would not have had a positive outcome without their help and persistence. I have already recommended them to several people in similar situation of migrating to this country. They were always honest and were in contact with me regularly to update me on any changes and progress. Thanks to Joanne and staff I am a permanent resident and I am almost positive I wouldn’t be without them.

— Sarah Burns, Skilled Migrant, September 2013

When I contacted Joanne Kinslor from Kinslor Prince Lawyers, it was one of the most desperate moments in my life as I had no idea if someone could help due to how complicated my case was.
Since first contact with Joanne she handled the whole situation which was very delicate with such professionalism that amazed me and gave me comfort as I knew that I had made the right decision and that my case was in very good hands. From the day I contacted Joanne it took only a couple of weeks to get my case sorted and to get my residency granted which I thought would never happen or that it would be another long battle after trying for over 10 years. I am so grateful to have had Joanne handling my case and have no words to say how important all that she has done for me, my case and my life, has been.

— Marcio Thiago, Skilled Migrant, September 2013

I came to Kinslor Prince Lawyers towards the end of the what had been a long PR application process and I wish I came to them sooner.
Immigration can be a difficult area to navigate, however, David Prince attended to my queries in a straightforward manner. He explained issues in terms that I understood and avoided “government” or “legal” jargon.

— Bryony Vandepeear, Skilled Migrant, September 2013

— Zhijun Dong (Michelle), Skilled Migrant, July 2013

I would like to thank David Prince at Kinslor Prince Lawyers for the incredible for the incredible work he and his team did for me and my family.
Our situation was very difficult yet his capacity to analyse our situation and determine what should be done to help us was incredible.
We were initially despondent about our situation but when we appointed David we realised we had an ally by our side. This gave us great comfort and hope. Without him I am 100% sure we would not have got such a successful outcome.
At all times David was very intelligent, dilligent and helpful. Importantly he took the time to communicate to us the complexity of immigration law and to explain the processes. Appointing David and his team was the best thing we did with our immigration matter.

— Shaun Luttrell, Ministerial Appeal Applicant June 2013

I recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers because Mr David Prince and the firm has provided incredible help on the most difficult problem I have ever met in my life. Without their help, I cannot imagine what my life is going to be.
In 2012 a disaster happened to my Visa and I found myself in an absolute hopeless situation. My family and I have been seeking for help from nearly ten different lawyers / firms and none of them saw any chance and they all refused to provide help. Only Mr Prince pointed out where the government had gone wrong and told me that “I think we have a case”. I would remember those words my entire life because no lawyer has ever said this to me.
My family and I all agreed that he is a real expert and an extremely wise man. He always knows exactly what we needed to do and what direction the case was going, and he always had everything under control.
My case was not only one court, but three continuous steps. All three steps were extremely difficult and almost impossible to achieve, however with Mr Prince and the firm’s effort, I have finally won all three of them. After I had my new visa, my mother cried and my father called it a miracle, and I said we had the right lawyer.

— Yin Sun, Overseas student, March 2013

— Hazel Perez, Skilled visa Applicant, March 2013

Our application from the offset was a particularly challenging one and we have now successfully had our application approved all thanks to the professionalism, intelligence and hard work that was put into our visa. When we originally met with David Prince we were given a clear indication of what was required to be successful, the work we needed to undertake and what the part Kinslor Prince Lawyers would play in the process. Throughout the process we constantly felt that we were being kept informed of the progress, could ask any question big or small and the time was taken to explain things to us in detail.

— Naeem Iqbal, Judicial Review Applicant, June 2012

I know Mr David Prince when I joined MIA 6 years ago and David was my mentor. Since the, I have been seeking advice from David for various migration issues. Recently I had a MRT case that i was not capable to do and I contacted David and asked for help. After providing the relevant information about the case David instantly formed an opinion that it was not necessary for my client to attend the MRT hearing so as to save time and money. After receiving a letter prepared by David with relevant Migration Regulations quoted in his letter the Tribunal set aside the decision under review.
I strongly recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers because of the professionalism, accurate advice, smooth communication and very reasonable charges. In my client’s case it could have been more costly or time consuming if the client did not engage David in this case.

We used the services of Kinslor Prince Lawyers for a complex application for a temporary then permanent visa for my partner.
David Prince acted on our behalf.
From the outset he advised that our circumstances were difficult, but not impossible.
He patiently guided us through sections of the immigration act that were applicable to our case. He was able to explain that there was some hope, with a detailed and carefully prepared application. We were impressed with his knowledge and followed his instructions to the letter. There were several approval stages that we required and one by one, these approvals were granted. At the final interview, before my partner was granted her temporary visa, our case officer made the comment that our application was the best he had seen.

— John Craig, sponsor for complex spouse visa application, September 2011

I highly recommend Kinslor Prince Lawyers as I had a successful outcome for my grandmother’s case when it seemed impossible to turn the case around. Kinslor Prince Lawyers was my last resort and I felt that I came to the right place from my first consultation with their professionalism and confidence in their knowledge of immigration law.
I was so impressed and could see a silver lining as the lawyer picked an important issue which no one (else) could point out.
They answered all my questions clearly and informatively before I decide to place the case with them.
While they undertake my grandmother’s case they worked as efficiently as possible and finally won the case over the DIAC (Department of Immigration and Citizenship).
My grandmother now has a new opportunity to appeal to the MRT (Migration Review Tribunal).
Do no leave the case in your hands especially when it is complicated and hard. You could make it even harder and more complicated as I did. Leave it to the expert before you go far away.

— Julia Choe, complex lodgement at Migration Review Tribunal, September 2011

I sought legal advice from many well known legal firms but they could not deliver positive results and later informed me it was impossible.

They reviewed our case very specifically and in detail and did not miss any information that would help our case.
