Aida T Garcia

I migrated to Australia in 1978; started working for a credit union, then to an insurance company that gave me the opportunity to get my law degree from overseas recognised by the Supreme Court of SA. The rest is history. I have my own legal practice and am also a Registered Migration Agent since 1998 to date.
