 green logo

Green and Spiegel LLP was founded by Mendel Green and is based in Toronto, Ontario. Mendel Green was called to the Ontario Bar in 1962 and he has played a central role in the evolution of the Canadian immigration system. Mendel Green was one of the first immigration lawyers in Canada.

The law firm consists of 6 partners and 13 associate lawyers. Mendel Green’s two sons, his daughter and a daughter-in-law are also part of the firm. Mendel Green has built a family business. Early on in the firm’s start David Nekelsky brought on a significant real estate practice and now Green and Siegel LLP also has real estate lawyers. Green and Spiegel also have a licensed U.S. attorney on their staff with an office in the U.S.

All lawyers that work at Green and Spiegel are members of the Law Society of Upper Canada (Ontario Bar), the Canadian bar Association (CBA) and the Ontario Bar Association (OBA).

 

The Website

The website for Green and Spiegel is very professional and clear. The information provided is easy to read and very informative. Green and Spiegel cover all the necessary information on the various visa applications. After reading all the information about the different visas in Canada you will fully understand the ins and outs. It also says on the website that the Green and Spiegel lawyers will be able to assist clients in over 30 languages. We are not sure what these languages are as they do not specify.

On the website there is also a blog posts page and the articles that are posted are all relevant to immigration and the services that Green and Spiegel provide their clients. Green and Spiegel were also selected by Who’s Who Legal as one of the best immigration law firms in Canada. Aside from that honour, Green and Spiegel were also ranked as one of Canada’s Top 5 Immigration Boutique Law Firm’s by Canadian Lawyer Magazine. The accreditations of Green and Spiegel are made well known throughout the website.green awards

A problem that we found with the website is that is has no terms and conditions page, no privacy policy and no refund policy.

 

Social Media

The Green and Spiegel website has no social media links, which we found quite strange as they do have social media pages. The Facebook page for Green and Spiegel LLP has only 315 likes. The posts on the page are not very regular but they are relevant to Canadian immigration and to what Green and Spiegel do. There isn’t much traffic through the page by the looks of things as not many people comment on posts or like the posts.  The Facebook page was created in 2010.

The Twitter page has more activity as there are quite a lot of tweets. Green and Spiegel only have 164 followers but the posts are very regular and relevant. The last post on twitter was from the 14th of September.

 

 

 

Overall

We did a lawyer check on Mendel Green, Stephen Green, Evan Green and Shoshana Green with the Law Society of Upper Canada and they are all legitimate lawyers. law society upper canadaThe website for Green and Spiegel LLP is very professional. All the necessary information about the different visas is supplied and extremely thorough. The law firm has also been selected for some very prestigious awards.

We do not think that Green and Spiegel are a scam as their company identity is quite good and Stephen Green often offers his professional opinion with regards to immigration matters. What is alarming is that this law firm has no terms and conditions page, no privacy policy and no refund policy.

Discussion about this review

  1. A.N says:

    Green and Spiegel is the best immigration/citizenship law firm in the Toronto area. With so many lawyers out there, dealing with questionable means of getting people legitimate paperwork, G&S is the only one in my experience that understood my problem and helped me get through a really hard period of my life. Mr. Mendel Green is professional, kind and understanding but most of all fair. Thanks G&S for all your help! You were wonderful!
