I’ve been practicing law in Ontario since 1998 and started focusing exclusively on immigration law in 2008. Immigration law has become my passion. I truly enjoy my work because I get to help people land a dream job in Canada, reunite with family members, or even escape a potentially dangerous situation back home. It’s important work, and I take pride in doing it well.
I’m an active volunteer in my community and have taken on a variety of leadership roles for non-profit organizations. I am currently part of a private refugee sponsorship group and have enjoyed being part of the lives of refugees as they settle into life in Canada.
Fanni Csaba – Associate Lawyer
I joined the Ronalee Carey Law team as an Associate Lawyer in 2016. I previously worked with Ronalee as an intern during law school, and as a legal clerk. In addition to doing of the bulk of the firm’s citizenship applications, I assist with Express Entry applications, family sponsorships, visa and permit applications, and applications to overcome criminal inadmissibility. I work diligently and efficiently while assisting clients with gathering the necessary information and documentation to ensure that their applications have the best chance of success.
I moved to Canada from Hungary with my family in 2001, and I’d be happy to share my experiences with those who are new to the country. I received a Doctor of Law degree from the University of Ottawa, and previously held positions at Allan Snelling LLP, the United Nations Refugee Agency, and NAV Canada.

I assist with in-land refugee claims, private refugee sponsorship applications, Humanitarian and Compassionate applications, family sponsorships, visa and permit applications, and Express Entry applications.
I immigrated to Canada from Egypt in 2005, and understand the challenges of moving to a new country. I would be happy to support you through this process. I am a proud member of Refugee Lawyers’ Association of Ontario and Canadian Association of Refugee Lawyers.
