  1. This morning I had the opportunity to sit with Mark Holthe to discuss an issue regarding my immigration (Express entry) for permanent resident. It brought to my mind the whole time as he took me through my issue the meme, ‘when someone does something right, people tend to forget and when someone does something wrong, nobody forgets’……………Well, in my opinion, Mark did more than right. He gave a lot of attention to my issue and deep insight on how to solve it that I personally believe has no comparison elsewhere. This is one professional anyone starting or planning to start an immigration process, now or in the future, of any class needs to engage first! Many thanks to you Mark Holthe!

    • Nicholas,

      Thanks you very much for your kind words. I know that I have definitely not provided perfect legal services to every client I act for.

      At times I am overrun with work and not as responsive as I would like. I wish I could do a whole lot better than I am currently able. However, if there is one thing I do want people to know……it is that I “care”.

      I may not always be able to help people in the way I want, or the way they would like me to. However, I am striving as best I can to make people’s lives just a little better than before they came in contact with me. It is for this reason I got into Immigration Law in the first place. Regardless of my many imperfections, I just want to help.
