We are a couple who applied together for Canadian permanent residency. After getting all approvals, we received our passports with immigrant visas. When we went to the Canadian border to get landed, we were derailed and told that one of us was a person of interest in an outstanding theft case from another country. We were flabbergasted and totally at a loss as to what to do as both of us are foreign nationals who had been inCanadafor less than 5 years on work visas. The CBSA officer informed us they need to do further investigations and will not be able to land us at that time.
The next day we hired a lawyer in our city, who was unable to provide any help or answers. Over a month later, we calledJoel Sandaluk, after a Google search for a competent immigration lawyer. Initially, we were hesitant as Joel was located in another city and time zone; however, he proved his value within a few days, as he was able to obtain information on the case that was delaying our landing. We had been unsuccessful at getting this information from the CBSA despite ours and our previous lawyer’s repeated efforts. Joel managed the case and communicated with the authorities very effectively fromToronto, without having ever met us in person. He made himself available to us over the evenings and weekends, which significantly allayed our persistent fears over the situation. No matter how panicky we felt as the case developed, speaking with Joel always calmed our doubts.
Joel took ownership of the issue, liaising with a lawyer from the country of the case, to get it resolved. He also advocated for us ardently to the CBSA, and always believed in our innocence. He was always available to provide clear guidance regarding our options at every step. Dealing with Joel, we felt that he cared about us, a stark comparison to our previous lawyer who had always kept one eye on the clock while we talked, and sent us an astronomical bill at the end of a few unhelpful sessions. Joel was committed and focused on winning the case, and ensuring that we were able to reclaim our lives. Joel was also flexible with payments and transparent about the value delivered in exchange for the fee paid. Joel’s assistant, Michelle Madl, was also extremely helpful and responsive throughout the process.
After Joel’s unwavering support, it was no surprise that he was one of the first people we called after getting landed. We wholeheartedly recommend Joel for his passion, dedication, and capability, and are looking forward to engaging him when we are ready to apply for Canadian citizenship.

We are truly grateful and delighted about the positive results of our H&C application where we had our second opinion with your company Mamann, Sandaluk & Kingwell Immigration Lawyers last December of 2009. From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank you and the entire staff of Mamman Sandaluk & Co. for the amazing job. No amount of words could better describe our happiness when the CIC initial approval came in August, 2010. Currently, our case is now being finalized and God willing our PR will come through next year.
You are simply the Best Immigration Lawyer in downtown Toronto.
Thanks a Million and best wishes.
