We had a sensitive immigration visa issue for our adopted son, thankfully we found Turner Hopkins and the service provided by Tim McSweeney and Mahafrin Variava was nothing short of first class. I went from sleepless nights to a sense of calm when the Turner Hopkins team swung into gear and brought a speedy resolution to a complex range of issues, we are extremely grateful for their professionalism but also the friendly nature in which they handled our situation. I really did feel an ease in my worry and anxiety from the very first contact on the phone.
Tim McSweeny and Mahafrin Variava have been superb. It was a long journey for my wife and I to get her and our children's residency in NZ but it has been all worth it. When we went to pieces, Tim and Mahafrin kept it together. When we doubted, they reassured. We cannot thank them enough and wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone battling INZ.
We are a software company in Switzerland and had some issues with a company in New Zealand. Searching for the right lawyer who could assist us professionally was not easy. Lucky that we find Turner Hopkins and Michael Robinson and his team helped us in this case very professionally. In those instances, you need the most professional support, attention to details, approachability to consult and above all genuinely caring about your situation. All of those I got from Michael and the Turner Hopkins staff. I thank him and his team very much. I can highly recommend.
We would like to express our sincere appreciation to Mahafrin and Tim in particular, and the Turner Hopkins team for their professionalism and expertise in handling our Immigration matter. With young children and an ill family member overseas, it was critical that we received accurate professional advice and a prompt resolution. Mahafrin and Tim delivered way beyond our expectations with empathy and understanding. Thank you so much, and we will always be so very grateful for your help.
My employer was going through a restructure and I contacted Michael Robinson for legal consultation. After a short discussion, I was convinced that I trust this person to represent me. During this difficult period, Michael led the case very professionally, keeping all the details under control and making sure I am getting the best outcome. In those instances, you need the most professional support, attention to details, approachability to consult and above all genuinely caring about your situation. All of those I got from Michael and the Turner Hopkins staff.
Tim and Mahafrin helped us through a rather long and arduous process and were always available to get back to us and update us in good time. They were always professional and to the point, and diligent in pressing INZ about our case. A very good team.
I reach out to Mahafrin at Turner Hopkins after having applied for my visa and received negative feedback from INZ and having many issues with my employer at that time. She handled my essential skills visa applications and then my boyfriend's partnership visa. She guided us through the process and did an amazing job despite our really complex situation. She was understanding and resourceful. We both got our visas in the end and we cannot thank her enough for what she has done for us. Now Mahafrin is helping us to get our residency. The cost might be more expensive than other lawyers but it's totally worth it! I highly recommend Turner Hopkins for immigration processes.
After i spoke to Sharon, she made me feel like i had a legitimate case and her sternness made me feel comfortable in knowing that she can get the job done.
Thank you so much to the team at Turner Hopkins.

It was a very tough and long battle with INZ but you guys made it easier and possible, you were on top of everything. Special thanks to Aaron and Mahafrin Variava who fought like battlers and got my Residence Visa Approved. It would not have been possible without Mahafrin.

Applying for a visa can be a very stressful job so if anyone is looking for the best immigration advice contact Mahafrin, she has the solution for every immigration matter. Highly recommended A++++++
Our efforts to find a lawyer willing to deal with our problem came to nought. Turner Hopkins were recommended to us by a person who is also a lawyer. We really appreciated the speed that our needs were dealt with, and that we were kept informed of progress.
I just wanted to send my compliments for your service Joy, in particular in seeking an appropriate property for my business. During that period you have given me valuable information and guidance in processing the buying procedures smoothly.
To Michael Robinson – I wanted to thank you and your colleagues for many years of excellent service to the Bank. You have an outstanding business that has proved to be one of the most reliable and ethical businesses that Collections have dealt with in the almost 9 years I was with the Bank.
I've only been a client of Turner Hopkins for the last six months but I have been busy in that time. Phil has done legal work for me surrounding wills and a complicated house sale and purchase. All the work he has done for me has been to a high standard. I feel very secure in the fact that Phil is ensuring my financial assets are safe as I buy and sell the family home.
Joy, we cannot thank you enough for your help with our purchase! You have been wonderful to deal with and so proactive (and patient with my numerous emails). We will be visiting NZ in April so will make sure we drop in to thank you in person.
I'd like to compliment the team and Kathryn in particular on dealing with our property transaction. The time frames were super tight, it was Christmas week and the brokers got it wrong. Kathryn was an utter delight to work with and managed to transact the purchase prior to deadline. Our lives were literally in her hands. Top effort and thank you - a total star.
TH justified my faith in them by supporting us when we needed it most and, above all, being patient whilst we struggled through the worst financial crisis we'd experienced. Thank you.
I would like to say I was pleased to have Kathryn Wynd attending to matters on my behalf. Kathryn's professionalism, coupled with her knowledge of law, and attention to detail, has been very helpful to me and my family.
TH took all the stress and hassle out of the situation for me. Would highly recommend your firm to my fellow franchises owner/managers if they have any employment issues.
The level of service was above and beyond, exactly what I was looking for.
John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)
