Lawyers in it for the Money? Alter the Point of Reference

November 12, 2010

There may also exist a perception among certain immigration officers that lawyers are profiteering.In fact, CIC is a government institution that in part is measured by its ability to assist the public in accessing immigration programs through the website and other forums.Lawyers then can be perceived as unnecessary or only assisting the “undesirable” applicants or simply profiting on the uninformed who could do it themselves.Unquestionably on both sides of the divide there have been instances of corruption and abuse that lend credence to certain of these perceptions.

Although it is critical to highlight inefficiencies in the system to the appropriate parties it is equally important to communicate your positive experiences with a particular officer or office.This is not an exercise of building up credit in the credit bank but corresponding upon essential and highly functional aspects of the system.Do not underestimate the importance of the feedback.

It has been said that the true measure of a person is how s/he treats someone who can do him/her no good.As such, once your client was effectively or in some cases exceptionally handled communicate same.Alter the point of reference with the bureaucracy.Communicating inadequacies will assume greater importance when positive aspects of the system have also been communicated at a time when the admission of your client was not hanging in the balance.
