I want to say Thank You for the assistance and comfort received from Cherie. No one wishes to be in a divorce situation, or in my case, a complicated one. Cherie has given me very clear advises on the fees, outcomes and implications. She demonstrated empathy and compassion, helping me through my negotiations, interim and final. Cherie’s honesty and integrity is one of the reason I recommended I.R.B Law LLP. Appreciate.

I had recently engaged Cherie to help out a divorce case. I find her to be highly professional and knowledgeable. She is firm when she needs to be. She does not over promise and advises in a pragmatic manner. She is upfront about fees involved and helps us in exploring ways to spend the funds wisely.

Ginny,

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.

Albert,
