WHY SMIEDT & ASSOCIATES?
Best Immigration Lawyers in South Africa and technically assured by the Legal Practice Council
The field of immigration law requires high-end technical immigration skills, staff support structures, reputational presence and ability to liaise and communicate with the Department of Home Affairs (“the Department”).
What makes Smiedt & Associates the most dominant provider of immigration support are its people. It has built a solid relationship with the Department at the very highest levels and commands the respect of its officials.
All its visa and permanent residence permit applications are prepared in a defined time-frame with the maximum efficiency and quality assured before submission to guarantee a legally compliant application.
Its people are fully qualified South African lawyers and not ‘agents’ who have no legal or immigration qualifications or foreign lawyers for that matter. Immigration is, after all, an administrative legal process under South African laws and thus best handled by South African lawyers.
Skilled in both Visa and Permanent Residence Acquisition & Immigration Litigation
Smiedt & Associates is not just highly proficient in immigration visa and residence applications both in South African and abroad but has the legal skills, ability and dexterity to ensure that applications run smoothly and should there be an unwanted delay such applications can be fast-tracked through the same immigration lawyers to guarantee your outcome.
Delays are not resolved by ‘follow ups’ unless they can be backed up by immigration litigation otherwise such visa or permanent residence will never find proper finalisation.
Charges and Successful Outcomes – ‘Right First Time’
There is no point paying low fees if you are going to be refused and disappointed. You will then have to pay multiple times to achieve the same desired result – or worse still, never actually succeed.
Smiedt & Associates recognises that any visa application, permanent residence permit application, appeal or court matter is only as good as its substance, which is not taken lightly. It requires top-end skills, technical experience and a proven track record to repeat quality, and this is why our fees are at the higher end in the market-place as this eliminates having to face unwanted outcomes.
Smiedt & Associates strives to act in its clients’ best interests at all times, in order to avoid the adverse consequences of poor judgment, which sadly translates into disappointment.
