I have been working with the team Prestige Law & Consulting for the past 5 years. I have always found Royal and her team to be professional, timely with responses to queries and personable. They have phenomenal facilities, meeting rooms. Clients are treated with respect and they go above and beyond to help.Their knowledge of customs & law across Chinese and Kiwi cultures make them uniquely placed to provide a comprehensive service. I love that Prestige have a diverse team in terms of age, gender balance and skill sets. I also love how they keep up with technology, and advancements in social media, making easier to communicate. Oh and the office dog! So cute and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. I do love the way the business has a real family feel to it. However, when it comes to the tough cases, Royal and her team are definitely the team you want in your corner. Highly recommend
Over the past 10 years, Prestige Law have always taken care of our property investment matters with finesse and proficiency. Being overseas at the time of our most recent refinance was not even a problem. Prestige are very tech-savvy and everything was arranged with ease via instant messaging using my mobile phone.I've also had great pleasure in partnering with Prestige Law to produce content for their digital media journey. Through filming and photographing various events and collaborations, I have been deeply impressed with this firm's innovation and how they are suited to support clients from many various cultural & language backgrounds. It is always a joy to visit Prestige's offices and be greeted with friendly smiles and warm cup of Chinese tea.
Dear Royal, I am writing this letter to express the deepest appreciation for your excellent and professional job what you and your team have done for my work visa application. I would like to say you saved my life and solved my family crisis. I just want to make sure you know how much you are appreciated.I still remember when Helen recommended you to me and I turned to you asking for help is a Saturday night. Only five days before my visa expires. You called me straightaway that night to view my case, which I am so grateful. That was a very bad and urgent situation, my PR application was declined due to some misleading information entered in my EOI form, immigration doubted my character, then my work visa application was declined due to same reason. And I just labored a newborn baby at same time. Everything came together, I was so stressed and depressed. I have never thought my case will turn out to be so serious and difficult. Luckily I met prestige lawyers, you guys gave me constructive suggestions, professional services and logical ideas. With your help of good preparation and explanation my work visa application approved for 3 years, and It was quickly approved within 12 days after the new application.Now my husband and I can have a breath and relax. We can have a new start from now on, especially with my little baby.Thank you very much again for everything that you guys have done for me.
Mrs Reed and her team were involved from the early stage of the application for the preparation work. All my questions including setting the right direction, documents preparation and all the details in the process I was able to get prompt and accurate reply from Mrs Reed and her team, I was very impressed with their professional performance. Two months after the submission of the Employer’s questionnaire, without any requirement for further changes or interview I got what I was after, to a great degree this was because Mrs Reed and her team had a proper understanding of the whole situation and the details. I highly recommend Mrs Reed and her team. If you have similar situation you’d better get in touch with Mrs Reed’s team quickly and get some advice from them.
