Helped Our Family Stay Together

“Just when we thought there was no hope for our family to stay together in Canada, a friend introduced us to Mr. Souraya. He truly gave us hope for our situation and truly amazed us. Since day one we had his full attention and never had any doubts what he would do for us as a lawyer. He was always very positive and honest with us…”

Excellent Service

“Phoenix Legal has offered me excellent service over the course of the last two years. I recently moved to Canada in 2011 on a work permit. Mr. Abdul is highly knowledgeable in his field. Once my application was submitted for my landed immigrant status, I was assured that things would run smoothly and it was only a matter of time. And most certainly I had no problems whatsoever with my application…”

Prompt Attention to Detail

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Phoenix Legal and its staff towards the effort they have put on for the complicated immigration case we had faced. After searching on Internet and counseled to a couple of different law firms, we felt good and confident that Phoenix Legal would be the right firm for our case…”

Personalized Attention

“I needed to sponsor my parents’ immigration to Canada from Pakistan. My previous lawyer had lost my file, and only a week was left for my appeal hearing date. I had completely lost hope that I could win this case because the sponsorship financial issues were very complex. But Mr. Souraya prepared the case in one day and still managed to present and win the case flawlessly at the appeal….”

Knowledgeable & Approachable

“Before contacting Mr. Abdul Souraya, I had spent over 8 months with another lawyer. My application had gone nowhere and my questions went unanswered. He explained the process and my options clearly and then promptly took action…”

Straightforward and Honest

“I had a great experience with Phoenix Legal. They are very friendly and very professional. The immigration lawyer is straight forward, and honest. I had no hope in my case, but Phoenix Legal gave me another fighting chance…”

Treated Our Case with Sensitivity

“My experience with Phoenix Legal was all class. Our case got customized attention and everything was done properly. My wife’s visa had been originally denied, and Abdul gave us the effort needed to win our appeal…. In the end, everything he advised was correct and we were elated with the result….”

Professional Canadian Immigration Lawyer in Calgary

Immigration applications can sometimes be denied due to complex legal procedures. An experienced immigration lawyer can evaluate your application and ensure it fulfills all the mandatory requirements. If you need a Canadian immigration lawyer in Calgary, count on Phoenix Legal.


The primary role of an immigration lawyer is to advise about your legal rights and options, help prepare documents for your application, and represent you in court if necessary. Immigration consultants, on the other hand, can give advice based on their knowledge of immigration law but often do not possess rigorous training and experience to help navigate through complex immigration cases. Both lawyers and consultants are important because they help immigrants understand their options and make informed decisions about their immigration status. However, the main difference between an immigration lawyer and an immigration consultant is that the former provides federal court representation while the latter does not. As immigration lawyers in Calgary, we have more legal experience as compared to consultants and can provide you with better solutions. Our team is committed to providing you with quality services, going above and beyond what an immigration consultant does.


Our lawyers have proper knowledge and experience in handling immigration application challenges. Since 2002, at Phoenix Legal, we have enjoyed a high level of success by providing first-rate immigration legal services to clients in Calgary and worldwide because of our love for the community. Veteran lawyer and managing director Abdul W.M. Souraya brings over 31 years of experience as a successful lawyer since he began his career in Ontario in 1991.
