How fortunate are we at Laurent Law to have the honour of introducing two experienced Staff Solicitors in one month? The business is rapidly expanding, and to be able to satisfy all our client needs we had to expand our staff complement.
Jacqui Lee joined us on 17 July and we are over the moon to have her on board. Jacqui and her family migrated to New Zealand from South Korea in 1996. We do not believe that it is coincidental that this was the same year that Laurent Law was established. We like to plan things well in advance. The family settled in West Auckland where she completed her primary, intermediate and high school education.
She graduated from the University of Auckland in 2009 with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and completed her Professional Legal Studies in 2010, shortly after which she was admitted to the bar. During the course of her Professional Studies she joined a city based law firm as a law clerk, working side by side with an immigration lawyer. This is where she realised her calling.
Jacqui moved on to a leading immigration consultancy as a Legal Analyst and gained comprehensive knowledge and skills in the immigration field. During this period she also gained a Level 7 qualification in immigration advice which allowed her to practice as a licensed immigration adviser.
From here Jacqui moved on to a law firm where she continued her immigration work as a solicitor. She joined a well established firm on the North Shore as an Immigration Solicitor and worked alongside an experienced immigration specialist where she acquired detailed knowledge of immigration legislation and processes, and refined her skills with a wide variety of client work in this field.
Jacqui has seven years of experience having dealt with all areas of immigration law including but not limited to partnership based applications, skilled migrant applications, section 61 requests, seeking special directions and representing clients in humanitarian and residence appeals. She has a wealth of knowledge in this ever-changing field, which has become her passion.
Jacqui is a valued member of our immigration team and we look forward to a long and prosperous working relationship with her. We are confident that our clients will enjoy her approach to life and work and that they will depend on her for valued advise and guidance.
Make an appointment to meet Jacqui and entrust your immigration related matters to her.
