“Carol Shipway is patient, yet tenacious on behalf of her clients.  I knew my Visa application was not going to get through easily. During that very stressful time Carol encouraged me to go to appeal and supported my application for a Ministerial Review.  My Australian residency is due to Carol’s knowledge of migration and her caring for me.”
