IMMIGRATION - Thank you so much to Ms. Kirkham for her excellent work in representing my husband, Ken and I in obtaining his Green Card. Months before, we had hired a highly recommended immigration attorney and were astounded with the many, many errors his firm had made on our forms. We had already paid him $3,000 and he wanted $2,200 more. The forms he sent for us to sign and submit had over 25 errors! We didnt know where to turn, until a former client of Ms. Kirkham referred her. We called and set up an appointment. From that first meeting, we felt very confident in her knowledge of immigration procedures. During this important process we needed peace of mind (especially after our former experience). Her level of professionalism, her attention to detail and conscientiousness was AMAZING! Her forms and the documentation she included with our petition was PERFECT. The process went through without a hitch, a glitch, or a hiccup...In other words....smoothly. AND Ms. Kirkham’s rates are fair and reasonable. Within 4 months Ken and I went for his interview and obtained his Green card, much quicker than we thought possible. I wish I could think of better words to express our sincere appreciation for all Ms. Kirkham did for us.

CUSTOMS LAW - I had a serious situation when U.S. Customs seized my entire container of imports. Thankfully I was represented by KIRKHAM LAW.

When it comes to professionalism and competence, I recommend Kirkham Law.

INTERNATIONAL TRADE & ADMINISTRATIVE LAW - As part of its obligation under the World Trade Agreement (WTO) Treaty, Jamaica took the decision to establish an Antidumping and Subsidies Commission (ADASC) to conduct investigations into unfair international trading. Ms. Kirkham was hired and her performance in getting this new organization off the ground was outstanding. She guided the design of the public education and training and actively participated in refining the law and drafting the governing regulations. She developed and nurtured relationships with the WTO office in Geneva Switzerland and with similar commissions in Canada, United States, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Trinidad. Three years later Auditors from the WTO singled out the Jamaican Commission as exemplary, and a model for developing countries. This is a tribute to Ms. Kirkham’s stewardship.
— Beverley Morgan, Chairman of ADASC
We appreciate and thank Ms. Kirkham for her penchant for painstaking and hard work and her contribution to the establishment of the Jamaican Trade Remedies Commission, an organization which now holds a lofty position in the Caribbean region as assessed by external observers and experts.
