24 Local business woman helps new arrivals Trish Jarvis has seen first hand the positive impacts of embracing new arrivals to this country. She’s been practicing law for 16 years and has a humanitarian background helping people detained in detention centres. This year Trish opened her own firm Jarvis Migration + Law on Greenhill Road. The firm specialises in corporate and family migration, judicial and administrative review and personal injury. “I want to spread the word of the benefits of positive migration and what skilled workers can bring to our economy,” Trish says. “I want to break down the stereotypes that migration is just about people ‘ jumping on boats and skipping queues’. Migration can bring incredible benefits to business, tourism and our economy and this should be promoted and celebrated.” She says legislation is constantly changing and the current political climate has fuelled much uncer tainty. “I have seen a big shift towards people instructing our legal services instead of giving it a go on their own given the changes and uncer tainty,” she says. Trish decided to open her firm on Greenhill Road after listening to her clients' needs. “My office is only five minutes out of the city, so easily accessible when I have court hearings,” she says. “My clients prefer to attend out of the city as we have ample parking and ease of access. I see the strip as an upcoming area where businesses can thrive.” Jarvis Migration + Law is situated at 50 Greenhill Road, Wayville. Trish Jarvis.
