As an Expat living in Singapore I had an experience with a landlord which I now understand is quite common. Essentially the landlord wasn’t intending to return all my deposit despite having zero grounds for not doing so.

I contacted August-Law and Nadia was listed as the point of contact. She gave me some practical and honest advice which in some respects was to her commercial detriment. The advice avoided a visit to court and in the end I received my deposit back in full.

Her honest approach has changed some of my perceptions about the legal profession and in the future I would not hesitate to engage or recommend her services.

Mark Pratley,

A thoughtful and diligent lawyer, Nadia handled my case efficiently and compassionately. It was a pleasure to work with her towards a successful outcome.

Martin Piper,

We are so glad to have engaged Nadia’s help, who is an outstanding and exemplary lawyer. She is not the typical lawyers who we have seen many in the past that usually swamp you with lots of technical / law jargons and never feel for your situation. In fact, Nadia is extremely patient, full of empathy and highly efficient as she handled our matters with her utmost professionalism. We felt so at ease and appreciate all her efforts in helping us resolving our worries. Thank you so much, Nadia!

Yap,

Nadia has been understanding and approachable. She is very professional and was efficient in meeting the tight deadline. I’m happy with the outcome.

Devi,
