Family Law

Family law practice concerns the legal aspects of all matters relating to relationships between members of a family. We offer expertise in dealing with matters relating to separation, divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, and division of property.

In particular, we have extensive experience in dealing with complicated cross-national lawsuits where the parties have family assets situated in Taiwan, Hong Kong, China or Korea.

Immigration Law

We offer a range of services in our immigration practice which include filing various applications, appealing a rejection by a visa officer in the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD), and conducting a judicial review in the Federal Court.

Immigration practice can become complicated due to cultural differences. It is not a simple process of form-filling; it involves an in-depth case-analysis and understanding of various legal perspectives. We are here to offer our expertise to avoid delays and maximize your success.

Conveyancing - Buying and Selling Houses

In the hot housing markets, sometimes buying and selling houses can be legally complex. We have extensive experiences in coping with all types of complicated legal situations involving the transactions. We are here to protect your legal rights and financial benefits in all steps of such transactions.

Criminal Law

Criminal law involves offences committed against the public. Unlike civil cases, which deal only with private disputes, criminal offences are specifically designed for charges made against an individual by the government represented by Crown Counsel. The Crown is required by law to prove a charge beyond a reasonable doubt and you have the right to remain silent. In other words, you have no obligation to offer assistance to the Crown’s case. In many cases, you are protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms against intrusion of privacy and unreasonable search and seizure.

When you are arrested by the police, or when you are charged of an offence by the government, you cannot take it alone. We are here to offer our help, as we are experienced in dealing with the prosecutors and defending your case in court.

Civil Litigation

Our civil practice deals with a lawsuit resulting from a dispute between private parties (individuals or corporations). We are experienced in representing clients in a range of areas including breach of contract, debt collection, or personal injury.

Litigation can be lengthy, costly, and emotionally disturbing. However, we will do our best to avoid litigation to achieve satisfactory resolutions.

Buying and Selling Businesses

We are here to help you with all legal aspects of the transactions including contract negotiation, due diligence searches and closing of the transactions.

Notarization

If you need to draft a legal document to be used in China, the Chinese authority requires authentication from the provincial government and verification from a Chinese Consulate. We are authorized to prepare those documents for you.
