When I was faced with the need to find a lawyer, I found it very difficult to make a choice among the countless lawyer ads you can find online. I chose Nadia because of the reviews I read on this very website and It was a choice I never got to regret. As said in the previous reviews, Nadia is warm, personable and she has excellent listening skills. I particularly appreciated her efficiency and the swiftness with which she put my case together. She was always proactive in getting back to me before I needed to and she was always available to meet me or call me at the shortest notice. She gave me excellent advice throughout my court case and she was good at showing me and my husband the reasonable path when our anger and our need for justice made us stubborn and not always realistic. If you are a woman and a victim of sexual harassment, you will probably feel the need to talk to a lawyer who will show you kindness and understanding. I recommend Nadia for her sensitive and non judgemental approach.

Nathalie,

I would recommend Nadia for anyone who experiences employment/contract disputes. I spent more than 2 years fighting for unpaid monies from my previous employer in Singapore. As a foreigner I found little in the way of assistance from the authorities or regulated bodies with regards to protecting the rights of a foreign employee earning more than $4,500 per month. It was only when I found myself chasing the employer that I found little in terms of law to either help or assist. After meeting with many lawyers, I felt that Nadia listened, showed compassion and acted in a manner befitting of a person with integrity. She showed through her service, that ‘I’ the client deserved a fair outcome and she went out of her way to metaphorically walk by my side.
I have and will refer her again, and again to others who require the legal services of a person puts the client before money. The Singapore system is extremely difficult to navigate as a foreigner chasing an errant employer and this is compounded by visa restrictions and the wide range of fees from various legal entities. Having clear, transparent fees and a highly communicative lawyer goes a long way to providing peace of mind.

Andrew Kerr,

Nadia Moynihan assisted me during a challenging period of my life here in Singapore, and I could not have received better legal support. Her knowledge of the judicial system is outstanding. Each step in the process was professional, deliberate and executed with great attention to detail. Nadia regularly updated me on the case and never left me in the dark. To Nadia, her clients matter and she is able to find the perfect balance of listening and advising. She has a unique way of showing compassion towards people which is few and far between in the legal system. A perfectly balanced lawyer; I could not recommend her any higher.

Sarah,
