Calvin Augustine is the founding solicitor of Augustine & Co. Immigration Lawyers. He graduated with Honours from the University of London law school, before being admitted to practice in Malaysia and Australia (admitted in SA, appears in all Victorian Courts and Tribunals, at trial and appellate levels).
His initial years of practice in Australia were spent at a commercial litigation firm, where he was subsequently given the task of heading up the immigration law division to cater to the increasing demand from international clientele through cross border transactions.
Prior to forming Augustine & Co., Calvin worked at several boutique and national immigration firms in Melbourne where he gained extensive experience in Australian immigration law and international matters through both work and personal experience.
As an immigrant from Malaysia himself, he is fully aware of the complexities of Australian laws, especially immigration law and thus makes every effort to provide exceptional, empathetic, and knowledgeable legal counsel to his clients globally. Deeply respectful of his client’s time and resources, Calvin works to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution for each immigration issue, while still achieving favourable outcomes in cases that other lawyers have considered hopeless.
During the course of his legal career spanning dual jurisdictions, he has gained diverse experience across various matter types which has made him an invaluable asset to numerous corporations, as well as individuals, in all their Australian immigration matters.
