I have been using Mr Lim’s services since 2009, the first time for my will and the second for my divorce. Both times, he was efficient and listened patiently to my problems.

Mr Lee,

I found his legal fees on his website to be very clear and transparent. Most importantly, it was very affordable to a person like me!

AJA,

Hi Chong Boon,

How are you?

I still can recall the day when I first came to see you with my brother in your office. That time, I was lost and helpless, had gone to seek legal aid, enquired with HDB, communicated to Developer, went to seek advice from MP, but I was still lost, with no direction, no knowledge on how to move on, or where to get an answer…

All in all, it took me about 3 months or so to bring myself to walk into PKWA office, but to me, it seemed very long for me to live each day in that 3 months. I have confidence in your advice, though I hesitated using you due to the lawyer fees. However, I’m glad that all has been sorted out with regard to the divorce.

Thanks a lot, Chong Boon.
Please take care.

Madam K,

Dear Mr Lim,
Just want to say thank you for all the support you have given me through this period.

Mr Lim, I’m grateful to have met you at PKWA. All the faith and trust placed in you and your team has certainly not let me down. Your words of encouragement at critical points were all that I needed. The storm has finally passed.

I’m very glad to have met you. Wish you all the very best, and may you continue to help others.

Allen,
