From the start of my visa application process to the day I received my visa, I have been nothing but blown away by MHL. Mary leads an incredible practice and is the absolute epitome of professionalism and compassion all rolled up into one. Not only is Mary a brilliant, knowledgeable and practical lawyer, she also makes it her priority to make you feel seen and heard. Every step of the way, I felt at ease with the entire visa process and if I ever encountered any questions or confusion I would be given assurance with utmost clarity and simplicity. While waiting for visa’s and learning about new and changing immigration processes can be quite tedious and stressful, Mary and her brilliant team, put my mind at ease with constant updates and correspondence with any new information that was relevant to the progress of my application. Mary’s team of legal professionals have all been efficient and timely in handling my case. They have all been incredibly cordial and approachable.
Highly highly recommended!.. very knowledgeable, great service, always accommodating, very professional, very responsive, great ethics.. its all awesome and fantastic team! If we can only give 6 stars :-)
Mary is an extremely knowledgable immigration lawyer and it was a pleasure working with her and the rest of the team at Mary Hanna Lawyers. My visa situation was fairly complex at the time, but I was quickly reassured by the guidance and expertise that they offer. Highly recommended!
An absolute delight to deal with in every way - couldn't have done my visa applications without their help. Quick to respond, fair price, friendly and very patient when explaining law ins-and-outs to an idiot like me. Highly recommend.
I want to start by saying a big thanks to the team at Mary Hanna Lawyers, especially Mary, Juana for supporting and giving us the best tools to navigate through the system.

The team at Mary Hanna Lawyers are all compassionate, attentive and extremely informative (I dealt with Mary and Morag). During a time of high stress for me and my family they made the process so smooth and stress free. Their communication was of the highest standard, always making themselves available if I had questions over the phone and response times on emails was exceptional.
Got the results we wanted, our family is reunited thanks to Mary Hanna Lawyers firm. They are very thorough, because they know their stuff. All staff are warm courteous and professional.

Mary has honesty and integrity, two attributes which are very rare! She goes the extra mile and I couldn’t have done it without her. Worth every penny and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
It was great of luck to have Mary Hanna Lawyers acted as my agent in my transition from a fresh graduate to a permanent resident in Australia. It wouldn’t have happened without Mary’s strong intuition, planning and strategy.
With [Morag's] knowledge & assistance, along with the diligent reviewing, re-writing, collection and final presentation to the [Department], we believed our submission was the best it could be. We just knew we were in good hands. We cannot thank them enough for helping us gain the 801 Partner Visa we desperately required to allow us to live happily ever after in Australia.

Mary communicated the process well and made sure we were aware of all possible scenarios. She was honest and sincere and all communications were made in a timely manner. She was very supportive and approachable.
The latest case we had with Mary, was for our family members from East Africa whom their application was refused multiple times and we almost lost hope to reunited with them in Australia. Finally their application was successful and they were granted permanent visas in Mary’s hands!!!
Throughout the process MHL were a pleasure to deal with, we always felt our case was a priority and were pleased with the approach taken by MHL. MHL were always very clear with expectations and very thorough in explaining the various processes throughout the different stages of our case.
[Mary] explains things in such a practical and simple way without using legal jargon and in the language we understand. She tells you of potential outcomes with conservative and honest practical possible outcomes.
