Poon CH,

Enquired about Letter of Administration with Cherie after reading great reviews about her service on the web. Her responsiveness and professionalism impressed me right from the start. She was quickly accessible via whatsapp & email and advised on various estate matters confidently and speedily. In the end Cherie concluded that LoA was not required in our situation and I appreciate her thoughtful and kind gesture to waive the consultation fees. Would recommend Cherie and approach her again for future legal needs.
