Phillip Silver and Associates rally to help Danny Green and Green Machine save his Boxing Comeback

This week the Phillip Silver and Associates team were met with a last minute emergency request to apply for visas for Danny’s Green’s opponent. Danny Green who is Australia’s 4 time, world champion boxer is scheduled to fight on the 19th August against an international champion. However this past weekend, his initial opponent Tomas Kovacs was deemed medically unfit and the fight was in jeopardy which would mean Danny Green’s highly publicised come back fight was threatened.
Everyone in the Australian boxing world has been waiting for the Danny Green comeback.
His new opponent was chosen and at the last minute, former world title contender and Argentinean fighter, Roberto Bolinto and his team needed visas approved. The Phillip Silver and Associates Sydney office were contacted on the 10th of August 2015 to apply for a visa for Roberto Bolinto as a world-class opponent. If the team’s Visa’s were not approved immediately, the Danny Green comeback fight could be cancelled.

The Phillip Silver and Associates team worked all hours and into the night to prepare the subclass 400 visa applications for the boxer, his trainers and support team to ensure that the Danny Green versus Roberto Bolonti fight would go ahead. Bolinto and his team also needed adequate time for flights to be booked and also to prepare for the world class fight.

If the fight was unable to take place, the promoters, both fighters and the tournament participants would suffer significant losses.

The visa applications were lodged during the evening of the 10th August and final submissions made to the Dept of Immigration in Washington (where the visas were being processed) after midnight

With all of the significant factors in place, the team, who was lead by Pauline O’Loughlin and Phillip Silver, were greeted on the morning of the 11th August 2015 by the Department of Immigration with a resounding yes as their visa applications had been approved.

Within less that 24 hours, the Phillip Silver and Associates team, had turned around approved visas for an international opponent and his support team. Phillips Silver and Associates has shown that our strength as a company is second to none in our quest to become an internationally recognised visa professional service firm with a team that is accomplished and ready to take on any challenge,big or small.

We are hugely anticipating the event on the 19th August, which is being televised live on Main Event and are of course are backing our own Danny Green.


“Words cannot express how tremendously grateful I am to Phillip Silver for his sincere compassion and legal assistance during one of the most challenging times in my life.

While coming highly-recommended to me by an honorable friend of mine, Mr. Silver’s level of expertise and professionalism surpassed even my greatest expectations. Aside from his obvious skill and remarkable success rate, Phillip Silver is genuinely committed to his clients.

Regardless of the time or the importance of my matter, every phone call and email was promptly and personally returned. With each circumstance that arose, Phillip gave practical advice and supplied necessary information to allow me to make my own informed decisions. He guided me through the daunting visa process, yet never lost his patience despite my frequent and overwhelming inquiries. He provided a support system and served as a mentor, exceeding the scope of what lawyers today are expected to do.

Simply put, lawyers like Phillip Silver are truly and exceptionally rare. Though it goes without saying, I would never hesitate to use or refer his outstanding services in the future. Thank you Phillip.”

The BIGGEST thank you to Phillip and his team for helping us with not one but TWO successful visa applications!! We hired Phillip Silver and Associates after we were denied the first tourist visa we applied for. All we wanted was for Tunji to come to Australia and meet Alison’s friends and family as they’d heard so much about him. Phillip was amazing and guided us through all of our options and then helped us put together our application for the Prospective Marriage Visa. All the odds were against us – We ended up applying for another Tourist Visa whilst we were waiting for an answer on the Prospective Marriage Visa and it ended up we got an answer for both within hours of each other. Of course both were a YES and in record time (6 months) for the Prospective Marriage Visa!! Now Tunji lives and works here in Australia, we just got married and are about to apply for the Partner Visa. We have no doubt that none of this would have happened if we hadn’t of used Phillip and his team! Thank you Phillip, Simar and everyone else for being so helpful and of course successful! We thoroughly recommend using Phillip Silver and Associates for, at the very least, peace of mind for a very stressful process.

Dear Rachael

Thank you so, so much. I really appreciate everything and all your efforts to bring this to a favorable end, I still remember the day I came for my initial meeting and consultation, the emotional state I was in and you made me feel comfortable and confident in your approach.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish everyone in your practice the very best in 2014 and beyond. I’m definitely your ambassador and will keep all contact details for future use and referrals.

Once again thank you so much and God bless you!

Kindest regards

Dear Phillip,

I would like to express how grateful I am for the outstanding work you and your immigration team did for my family. You did a wonderful job in my case when I together with my family (husband and two kids) were got bogged down in a bureaucratic process.

The odds were completely against my family when I placed an emergency meeting with you to help us and somehow you did. And now not only all my family is here with me but we applied for the Permanent Residence! Thank you again for the work you did to bring my family together.

I also would like to acknowledge something that I really appreciate as well. You are always in time. The moment I only start to think about the status of my application you appeared with update.

We went through a quite few application processes for me and my family with you at this point in time and I am willing to continue it with you only as well as I did and will recommend you as an Immigration Lawyer to others.
