The information is clear and easy to understand even if your first language is not English. There is also a French option for the website. There is information provided on the various visa applications which is quite helpful. The office is situated in Montreal, Quebec.

The social media presence for Gad Pariente is very poor. There are links from the website to the Facebook, Twitter, Google + and LinkedIn pages but there may as well not be. The Facebook page is a private page and you need to send a friend request. From what we are able to see, the last post was from April 2014. The Facebook account was created in 2007. The Twitter account was created in 2009 and does not have a single post, the page only has 48 followers. The Google + page has no posts and the LinkedIn page has the same information as the website.

The website has no terms and conditions, privacy policy or a refund policy.


Gad Pariente checks out as a lawyer with the various lawyer associations so that was a big plus for this Canadian immigration law firm. There are however no client testimonials available on the website and we couldn’t find any. This is not always a bad thing but it is sometimes a selling point for many people. One thing that we found quite strange is that there is no picture of Gad Pariente on the website and he has named the law firm after himself.

The poor social media presence is also is similarly concerning as there has been no effort put into the social media pages. We feel that this is quite lazy and we hope it isn’t an indication of the law firm’s work ethic. The website for Gad Pariente Immigration Law Firm was only created in 2011 but it is professional looking which we really liked.
