Technical expertise is easier to find than a person who puts you at ease, is warm and approachable. We needed to create various agreements for our business. All those formal words, words, words – not something I looked forward to! Thank goodness, there was Nadia as a patient, guiding hand, with her sharp eyes and clarifying questions and clear writing to get all agreements sorted!

In today’s world where they are so many service providers and Artificial Intelligence, I believe the professionals who will stand out are those who are demonstrating human-only gifts such as kindness. I experience this as a small number. Nadia is one of them.

Vadivu, Business Owner,

It has been a pleasure working with Nadia. She has been responsive, available, and highly professional throughout. She provided good legal advice and support, was easy and excellent to communicate with, and was supportive and very helpful. I would highly recommend her!

David Putnam Jr,

Nadia was recommended to us by a mutual friend.
We were seeking some advise regarding NS obligations. She provided factual examples of previous cases which helped in our decision making. Most of all
she was understanding and human during our interactions. There was a sense of comfort after our meetings which left us feeling positive about our situation.

Manu,

Met Nadia over internet,

She was responsive and diligent.

We had a problem with a neighbour claiming us for an accident we were not aware, we didn’t know what happened, just as we arrived Singapore 2 years ago.

Nadia was able to demonstrate the neighbour was probably not telling the truth to the court and was probably making up a history as she was not happy with us, our new neighbours.

Thanks Nadia for the hard work
