Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness

Very grateful to have Mr. Fazal assisting and advising with a personal legal issue that I have. It’s rare to find someone exceptional and dedicated in this industry with a high level of empathy and understanding.

Wish you all the best and will definitely recommend to everyone.

Zulhilmi Suginin,

I would like to share my experiences with lawyer Mr Mohamad Fazal.

2. I had engaged him in 2019 to provide legal advice and to represent me in my divorce case. An initial meet-up was arranged and he had provided me with relevant, succinct and clear advice pertaining to my divorce matters and expectations.

3. Apart from his commitment to handling my case, he also provided emotional support mostly in dealings concerning my daughter and future plans. He had exhibited immense professionalism in guiding and importantly listening to my concerns and addressed them accordingly without fail.

4. In addition, his professionalism and commitment was further displayed during the court sessions of which he was much better prepared as compared to the defendant’s lawyer e.g.

a) presented 2 precedent cases that were resided by the judge as references

b) clearly states and justify matters on housing, iddah, mutaah and child access

c) focused on the objectives i.e. to achieve fair results

5. Lastly, I am deeply appreciative and thankful to have engaged Mr Fazal as he was supportive, confident, diligent and meticulous in his pursuit to acquire a fair dealing in my divorce proceedings. On several occasions, the defendant had constantly reminded me that she has the best lawyer in Singapore. However in my personal capacity and experience with Mr Fazal, he is the best lawyer that everyone should engage for legal/Syariah matters.

Andy,
