Siew Kim provided me with timely, concise, clear and practical advice at a time when I needed clarity of thought and calm nerves. Enjoyed our frank yet pleasant discussions and sincerely appreciated her periodic follow-up and concern for my mental well being throughout.

K Menon,

I want to express my sincere appreciation to Ms Tan Siew Kim for the exceptional legal representation during my lengthy three-year divorce case. Her professionalism and dedication were evident throughout the entire process. Ms Tan handled the complexities of my case with multiple rounds of mediation, extensive discovery and appeals, with unwavering patience and expertise. Her advice was consistently sound, providing me with confidence and reassurance during a difficult period. Beyond her legal expertise, Ms Tan also provided valuable emotional support, which was instrumental in helping me navigate the emotional challenges of the case. Her relentless efforts in fighting for my interests in the division of matrimonial assets resulted in a favourable outcome that I would not have achieved without her representation.

I wholeheartedly recommend Ms Tan to anyone in need of a dedicated and skilled lawyer.

LK Ong,

Siew Kim is very experienced and professional in her work. When I first met her in her office, I couldn’t stop myself from crying my eyes out. She was very patient and listened to my failed marriage story. She was so experienced that after hearing my first few sentences, she concluded that my ex-husband has another woman outside. I was still in denial that he will not do that to me. Straight away she entered a mobile number on my hp and asked me to engage this experienced PI to follow up on my case in order for me to “wake up” and stop deceiving myself further. To cut the story short, the verdict is out and she has guessed correctly. Only very experienced lawyer can seen through this whole plot from my ex-husband. Although she is very busy and super tight with her schedule, she never failed to make a point to see me and give me advices, guiding me step by step on how to approach my ex-husband and talk terms with him. She is a god sent to me to help me go through such a difficult period; holding my hands and walking through this distressing stage. I’m grateful to her and her team for expediting my case and checking on me now and then. I will not forget her kindness and will continue to keep in touch with her even after my divorce case is over. In a good way, as a dear friend. Thank you, Siew Kim. May your new office flourish endlessly. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Jane Lim,

Tan Siew Kim was recommended by a mutual friend. I am happy that it turned out to be one the best decision I ever made in my life.
In all our meetings, Siew Kim always had a listening ear. She would seek first to understand your issue and backgrounds of events before proposing next step. As Siew Kim and myself come from different backgound and experience, it is normal of me to hold different viewpoints. She would patiently explain the rationale behind each differing viewpoints. I got more confidence every times after speaking with her.
During the trial prrocess, she fought relentlessly, argued wisely and staged intelligently. She was very composed, confident and steadfast during the whole trial process. We won the court case and I am grateful to her and her team.
Siew Kim is patient and very professional. Strong recommendation from me if you are going through divorce process with your spouse.

Tony Tan,
