Jatin has assisted many clients across Canada, specifically, in appealing various spousal sponsorship refusals or loss of status determinations for those in Canada to the Immigration Appeal Division, submitting applications for permanent resident status on humanitarian and compassionate grounds, and taking negative decisions including those issued on Pre-removal risk assessments, visitor visa, study permits, work permits and at tribunal hearings to the Federal Court of Canada.

Jatin began his journey in immigration law by joining his family firm and developing the immigration practice. Since creating this practice, Jatin has continued to pursue opportunities that allow him to become actively involved in his community. This includes volunteering his time with various pro-bono legal clinics, immigration settlement organizations, and as an Executive Member of the Canadian Bar Association Alberta South Immigration Section.

Outside of practicing immigration law, Jatin enjoys spending time outdoors, taking advantage of the beauty of Alberta’s rocky mountains. When he is not volunteering or working, Jatin is keeping up to date with the world of eSports, having competed at a regional level in his past.
