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,

Mrs. Moynihan is one of the finest attorneys and persons you will ever meet. Her approach to law is both extremely thorough and meticulous, while at the same time, her personality is warm, kind, and generous. I had the great misfortune of being unduly caught in the Singaporean criminal justice system and yet the silver lining of that misfortune was the truly great fortune that Nadia took my case. Through several years of set backs and endless frustrations, she did more than just represent me to the best of her abilities, she raised my spirits with countless gestures of kindness and friendship.

For many people, needing the services of a lawyer often means an uncertain and dark time in their lives. Nadia Moynihan is a wonderful lawyer and a great friend to have in those times of darkness and uncertainty. The ways she went above and beyond what could be expected of any lawyer, to look after me, are too numerous to list here.

Thank you Nadia, from the bottom of my heart. Is é mo theach do theach.

Ian,

I have used Nadia’s services for divorce / maintenance matters. I have consulted several lawyers before that and among others I found that Nadia had a sincere desire to help without overcharging for it. I find it a rare quality in lawyers. Nadia provides her clients online support as well and she had a personalized approach to my case. I am grateful for her assistance, thus can recommend her to others with confidence.
