I recently required the services of a lawyer in Singapore and was directed to Nadia by two separate parties. From the moment I met Nadia, I felt that I had made the right choice in seeking her out. She calmly listened as I laid out the details of the case, asked relevant questions and was compassionate in her reaction. She explained the harsh realities of what lay in store for me in a way that was gentle and sympathetic whilst also making sure that I was well informed and prepared for what lay ahead.

Over the next few weeks and months, Nadia was extremely attentive towards my case, checking every detail with me and letting me know of any update. I felt very comfortable knowing that I was in good hands legally. As well as being an upstanding professional, Nadia offered invaluable emotional support and was always available to talk to me. Knowing that I was unfamiliar in Singapore and did not know anyone, she took it upon herself to get to know me personally and invited me to join herself and her husband on various social occasions. This made me feel a lot better about my entire situation and went above and beyond what I would have expected from my lawyer.

Throughout the case, Nadia kept me in the loop with every development, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. She made sure I was aware of my options at every juncture and strove to carry out any request that I made.

I would highly recommend Nadia as a lawyer; she is extremely diligent, competent and maintains a very high standard of professionalism at all times. On top of this, she is a wonderful person who was a shining light during a very tough time in my life. Despite the circumstances, I am glad to have met her and I am now lucky and proud to call her a friend.

Colm,

I recently used Nadia and Kalco Law’s services to represent me in divorce proceedings. From the very first meeting Nadia displayed both a high level of professionalism and compassion during what is a very stressful and emotional time. Her experience enabled me to achieve a fair and straightforward outcome to all the issues that arise during such a matter. I would have absolutely hesitation whatsoever in recommending her and her firm’s services to anybody who may need them.

Ian Hay,

Nadia is a great lawyer who is willing to lend a ear when you need it. I have worked with her on a number of legal issues over the last five years. Her services were highly professional and responsive. She kept me informed throughout the process. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.

Zurina Bryant,

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,
