Dear Mr Lim,

My English is not very good, hence I am writing a letter to you in Chinese. I am extremely grateful to you and your lawyers Mr Tan, Jessica Chow, Jane Ng for your help. Thank you for all your efforts to help my children and me get justice and the outcome we deserve. It is also very rare to meet such a good lawyer like Mr Tan. They are all good lawyers that are hard to find. If not for all your help, my children and I would not know what to do. Amidst the practicality of society, there are very few lawyers who are willing to fight for justice and extend a helping hand to others in the private sector. Especially lawyers like yourself who put it so much effort to help my children and I obtain a PPO and the divorce. My children, family members and I sincerely thank you for your help. This journey has not been easy.

Wishing you and your employees a Happy Chinese New Year, and that all things will go in your favour.

Madam G,

Dear Mr Lim,

I have recently received the judgment from the Family Courts for my divorce case. Finally!! From a seemingly hopeless scenario when I first turned up at PKWA Law, it is a ruling that is truly way, way beyond what I could expect, or even dared dream! Not only does this conclusion to my 3-year long tedious divorce process bring huge relief, this Court ruling has also very much restored my faith in the Singapore judicial system as well. I can truly & positively testify that PKWA Law is certainly one of the best, if not the best, legal firms here and will not hesitate to highly recommend it to anybody in need.

Mr Teh,

Dear Mr Lim,

We always have faith that we will be well taken care of since the day we entrusted our case to you. And it has proven that we made the right decision.

Thank you very much for the hard work from you and your team.

Mrs Lim,

Thank you once again, Chong Boon, for working on this case for me. Very much appreciated.

Ms Ang,
