Eric Shawar – Voted the Best Edmonton Immigration Lawyer * * * * *


Eric Shawar has been helping clients to become citizens and permanent residents of Canada for more than 14 years, and his clients voted for his firm with 5 stars in every review.

if you have any immigration issue or you just need to ask a question, Mr. Shawar offers direct consultation with him by phone, that gives him the ability to check your case and give the right advice even before you hire him.

Why consult an immigration lawyer?

The Canadian Bar Association lists the many benefits of consulting with an immigration lawyer as part of a successful immigration process. We understand that dealing with your own immigration matters can be exciting, yet stressful and confusing. That is where we step in.

Shawar Law is a law firm which primarily deals in all types of immigration matters. So, whether you are looking to immigrate to Canada or want assistance while dealing with immigrational affairs in Canada, reach out to us.

We can help! It is imperative to note that an immigration consultant is different from an immigration lawyer. While both would be able to represent you while dealing with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, immigration lawyers respect and guarantee client confidentiality, have specialized training and education, and are regulated by the law society to ensure competent, professional and ethical behaviour. Apart from the fact that a consultant would typically undergo less schooling than a lawyer, the main difference between the two is that only a lawyer can represent the matter in federal court if your application is rejected and you wish to appeal the decision. Consultants cannot represent you in court.

They are permitted to represent you but still do not have the same level of experience or expertise as lawyers and often fail to acquire clients’ desired results. At Shawar Law, we have the qualifications, knowledge, and experience to assist you as we have successfully helped thousands of clients who faced difficult circumstances with immigration in our 15-plus-year history!
