Rory Hennessy, Nelson Immigration Adviser

As a former practicing lawyer, I currently hold a provisional licence for Immigration Advisory with a full-licence holder supervising my work. This means clients benefit from receiving two advisers for the price of one.

I have come to immigration law over time, initially studying the subject at Victoria University and later, as a Solicitor in Nelson. Since late 2018, I have focused my efforts full-time into immigration advice. I offer practical experience working with clients from various countries, languages and backgrounds. More formally, my legal training helps me to spot potential issues clients may encounter.

In my spare time I am passionate about exploring New Zealand's great countryside, enjoying the classic kiwi past-time of hiking. I love to travel and share my experiences with others. With that in mind, I offer my clients a genuine and safe experience - whether they be seeking to make New Zealand home long term or just for a visit.
