Yes, we did posses an MARN (Migration Agent Registration Number) until March 2021 (MARN: 1575322. Since March 2021, lawyers no longer need to be registered with OMARA and are subject to the law society rules and conditions. Having a MARN demonstrates that the person you are talking to is a migration agent and not necessarily a lawyer.
See our section on the difference between a lawyer and a migration agent.

In Australia, there are two primary professionals who can assist individuals with their immigration matters: migration agents and lawyers. While both migration agents and lawyers can provide immigration advice and assistance, there are some important differences between the two. Lawyers must have a law degree, are regulated by the law society with very strict rules and must work under the supervision of another lawyer for another two years before practicing on their own. Migration agents also cannot represent clients in courts. For complex matters, a lawyer might be better suited to advise on your matter. Their expertise and dedication ensure that you receive the highest level of legal guidance and representation for your immigration matters.

We take pride in our professional manner in handling immigration cases. Our accredited specialist immigration lawyer and legal team have achieved favorable outcomes for numerous clients, helping them navigate complex immigration laws and regulations. We work diligently to maximize the chances of success for each client’s immigration matter.
