I was spending close to 2 weeks trying to file a court document from Germany. Compounded with time zone difference and my presence (or the lack of it), I turned to Judy for help. I wish I had sought for her service much sooner because she could get all of my documents done in less than 24hr; from drafting letter of authorization, court filing and document retrieval – all were completed in 11hr and 30mins to be precise (I confirmed this with my email time stamp).

I am super impressed with her efficiency but above all, her work ethics. I felt very assured throughout the entire process because she maintained constant communications. She would even work after office hour to accommodate to my circumstance. She handled my queries with patience and provided sound explanations. Her fee was transparent and reasonable too. I was prepared to pay any amount because I needed my documents urgently. But to my surprise, she waived the court filing fees since it was minimal. I am definitely a very happy client.

Sylvia Mahara,

My heartfelt thanks to Judy for helping me with this difficult task.

She has been exceedingly patient and professional throughout, as well as responsive.

Without her help, this divorce could not have been concluded so quickly.

I recommend Judy to anyone who wants an empathetic, focused and efficient lawyer who listens and does her best.

Was searching for a lawyer from the Singapore Legal Advice website to do my Will and LPA. Judy was the only lawyer who responded to my request and I am most happy that she did. She explained all the legalities and requirements in a very professional manner and most importantly she was very patient and friendly, and took her time to explain things in layman terms so I could understand. She provided options on what I should, could and would like to include in my Will and that was most helpful.
I was most thankful to her for putting my mother at ease when she had to sign the LPA application forms. Mum was worried that she could not sign properly and Judy in her calm and friendly manner told her to take her time and even brought an ink pad in case she wanted to use thumb print instead. Judy also followed up to make sure that all the necessary paperwork had been registered and notifications received. Overall it was a pleasure working with Judy.
