About

Cherie was called to the Bar in 2015. Her primary focus is on matrimonial matters where her empathy, sensitivity and patience has won her many cases involving divorce, maintenance and custody. Her practice areas also include the following: –

 

  • Grant of Letters of Administration and Grant of Probate
  • Will Writing & Lasting Power of Attorney
  • Mental Capacity Act
  • Employment and Landlord Disputes
  • Debt Recovery

 

Cherie comes to law with a strong inclination towards traditional notion of justice and a profound respect for its establishment. With a strong work ethic, Cherie’s interest in law stems from her belief that everyone deserves a fair trial despite their socioeconomic background, demographic origins or purported culpability. With this disposition, she is committed to representing her clients to the best of her ability with a focus on the human element of a technical profession. Cherie is passionate about her work and her dedication towards her clients defines who she is.

 

Beyond the workplace, Cherie enjoys partaking in community initiatives and animal welfare causes. She appreciates travelling to new places and learning about new cultures. From traveling across Australasia and Europe, Cherie aspires to backpack across the world.

 

Besides being dual qualified to practice law in both Singapore and Western Australia, Cherie volunteers her time with Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE) and Legal Aid Bureau.

Very helpful and friendly, had other lawyers before, was not very impressed of their work ethics, but Cherie is definitely much better than expected, will be keeping her contact for future cases. Thanks again for your help, looking forward to working with you again in the near future. Cheers.

Patrick Liang,

What I like the most in entrusting my case to Cherie is that she is very impartial and ethical (unlike some other commercial lawyers out there who only focus on monetary aspects). So you could be rest assured to get the best, independent advice from Cherie! Cherie and her team are also super proactive in the whole process. Big thanks to Cherie and her team for ensuring a smooth and fuss-free process! Will definitely go back to her again for future services.
