Juan Silva

Immigration Consultant

 

I came to Australia with the purpose of finishing an English course and then return home. Little did I know that Australia was going to become my second home. I studied Law in my home country, Venezuela, where I lived my whole life.  

I have had the chance to travel around the world and live in a couple of places. After meeting my partner in Australia, I had the amazing opportunity to become a permanent resident of this beautiful country. It was during this process that I discovered my passion for visas and helping others achieve their migration goals in Australia. 

I am soon to complete my studies in Migration Law and Practice.  

Crystal Migration has been a great place to start my career in Immigration. The team is highly skilled and experienced, and I have learnt greatly from all of them. I am eager to continue growing my skills and contribute to making the dreams of many a reality, to call Australia home.  

I am passionate about traveling, exploring new places and experiencing new cultures. I love the beach and a nice warm, sunny day.

Matheus Lima

Immigration Consultant

 

Born in Brazil, Matheus started his career as a brazilian lawyer in 2018, working on corporate, contracts and tax law areas. When dealing with multinational companies as clients, he felt the necessity of improving his language skills, so he moved to Ireland and stayed for 5 years, where he completed his English course and a masters degree in dispute resolution.

In Ireland, he had a brief contact with migration law, but it was enough to spark his interest in the area and seek more knowledge and opportunities. 

Looking for a warmer country to live in, he moved to Australia in 2023, initially living in Western Australia and then moving to Sydney, where the opportunity to work at Crystal Migration was presented to him.  

Since then, Matheus has been diligently working on migration law matters, bringing his knowledge and experience to the team, and proving to be a great asset for the firm. 

In his spare time, Matheus enjoys sports, especially football (soccer), and traveling. 

“Working at Crystal Migration has been a valuable experience. It gave me the opportunity to deal with people from the whole world, and the chance to understand different cultures. What makes this job special is that the firm is focused on the people’s needs, and we work on how to bring the law to them.”
