The law office Kerstin Hewel specializes in immigration and citizenship matters. We view immigration as an opportunity - not only for each individual person, but also for our society at large. Thus, not only our professional competence, but also our strong personal convictions are driving force behind our representation of clients in all matters involving immigration and citizenship/naturalization.


Experience has shown that living in another contry will affect many areas of our life and touch upon many numerous fields of law, including Estate Law and Labour Law. Because of our familiarity with various legal systems we are able to effectively work with differing international regulations and laws.


We are acutely aware of the differences between Canadian and German legal systems and are happy to advise and assist you. Our experience is extensive, and you can absolutely rely on us. Contact us!


We have law offices both in Germany and in Canada.
