"The land flourished because it was fed from so many sources - because it was nourished by so many cultures and traditions and peoples " - Lyndon B. Johnson

Polson McMillan is one of only a few law firms in Otago offering immigration advice. We enjoy helping our diverse range of interesting and talented immigration clients to visit NZ, to work, study, build businesses, invest and live here, and we’re proud of our success rate in working with immigrants to help them achieve their immigration goals.  

Whether you are coming to NZ to visit the guy you've met online, to study or work at the hospital or the University and bringing your whole family, you’re an employer bringing workers to NZ for your business or farm, or you're grandparents wanting to be closer to family, we offer you the benefit of our experience representing numerous previous applicants and our in-depth knowledge of the not-always-easy-to-navigate Immigration NZ application processes. Because we don’t work to set fees, you only pay for what you really need our help with; we  can trouble-shoot the application you’ve completed yourself but not yet filed, step in to help out when Immigration NZ asks questions or declines your application, or we can manage the whole immigration process for you from start to finish.

Sally and Val have experience representing immigrants facing deportation, such as following criminal conviction, an area in which our parallel expertise in criminal and family law can often prove invaluable.
