Cherie is a knowledgeable and approachable good lawyer who I engaged to help with my divorce case. Before I decided to officially seek for her professional help, I consulted a few other good lawyers’ legal advice and also the State Court CJC as well.

I was so stressed out and lost when my partner wanted to divorce me on a short notice! Legal Advice was never easy for me to understand especially when I was so worn out mentally and emotionally by my partner. Some lawyers are good in fighting for my benefits completely totally while some seemed a bit soft sided. I needed a balanced legal representative and Cherie is the most suitable for me. Yes, I needed to win the case but not totally all out, as my kids will suffer. Cherie can see the balance I needed and advised me clearly on the pros and cons. She replies promptly and patiently to all my questions. She executes prompt follow ups too and updates me regularly on my case’s progress.

Most importantly, I’m able to communicate well with Cherie thus I chose her as my Legal Representative.


Cherie Tan was on the team of my divorce lawyers. During the divorce process there were some very complicated financial reports by third party accountants that had to be produced for my reply affidavits. She explained to me in laymen’s terms what it all meant and give me a good overall picture when I was overwhelmed with paperwork trying to understand it all from a legal standpoint. I was surprised that she not only had a good grasp on matrimonial matters but also in financial and business concerns, since I own my own business and had possible civil disputes in addition to my matrimonial matters.
Cherie is also very understanding and compassionate and ready to help someone who does not understand what is going on. I highly recommend her to anyone who is a businessman/woman that is going through a divorce with complicated issues.

Phillip Hughes,

I engaged Cherie for my matrimonial matters early last year – from the get go, Cherie was extremely professional and gave great advice. I truly appreciated the approach that Cherie stands for, which was to keep things simple and straightforward for a smoother process and it couldn’t have been more true. Throughout the process, I did not have to do much follow ups as Cherie would ensure that I am duly updated every step of the way. She is well aware of the stresses that comes with such matters for her clients and takes it upon herself to give appropriate counsel that helps. I would highly recommend Cherie if anyone is looking for legal counsel on matrimonial matters.


Efficiency and quality service. Able to provide advise. Reasonable and affordable pricing.

Gin Ho,
