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.

I had a serious situation when U.S. Customs seized my entire container of imports. Thankfully I was represented by KIRKHAM LAW. Ms. Kirkham was available every day of the week and worked effectively with the Manufacturer in China and U.S Customs in Tampa, FL to ensure release of my shipment. When it comes to professionalism and competence, I recommend Kirkham Law.
— V. Patel, UNIC Imports, Sarasota, FL

I needed help in applying for my green card. I had researched several lawyers and by chance I heard about Ms. Kirkham who was about to give a seminar on Immigration issues in Ruskin, FL. The bottom line is, there are a lot of lawyers that do Immigration Law, but they don’t have the compassion she has. She cares for her clients as people, not just customers and she is thorough and knows her business. I would recommend her highly.

Kirkham Law’s experience in International Trade was magnificently manifested in the successful resolution of the Cement Antidumping case of Jamaica vs Dominican Republic in our favor.

In the area of International Trade Law...the go to firm for astounding work and professionalism is Kirkham Law.
— Canute Salmon, ARC systems - JAMAICA

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.
— Phillip Paulwell, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Technology, Jamaica

As a Regional Consultant to the Joint University of the West Indies and World Trade Organization (UWI/WTO) International Trade Policy Courses conducted for public trade officials throughout the Caribbean Region, Ms. Kirkham was selected for her extensive knowledge and experience in International Trade Matters and has made an invaluable contribution.
— Dr. Lucy Eugene, Academic Coordinator UWI/WTO Regional Trade Policy Course

Ms. Kirkham has been an Associate Lecturer for the University of the West Indies graduate courses “World Trading System and International Economic Law”. She is hardworking, conscientious, organized, analytical and thorough and provides practical approaches and invaluable regional perspectives to the practice of International Trade Law.
— Dr. Jessica Byron, Senior Lecturer -UWI Department of Government

U.S. Immigration law is quite confusing to me and although I had been to another lawyer previously, it wasn’t until I hired Kirkham Law that clarity was restored. Ms. Kirkham’s knowledge, conscientiousness and timely updates were remarkable.
