我是一名来自中国的中医理疗师,2017年期间被“有心人”投诉,成为一个“非礼”的嫌犯。
当我第一时间知道这件事情的时候,心里非常愤怒,但是我还是决定请律师打这场官司,因为我要捍卫我的名誉。
很多人都告诉我肯定会输,因为新加坡的法律是保护女生的,可是我还是义无反顾的打这场官司。
就这样我有幸结识了wilbur律师。他温文尔雅文质彬彬,开始的时候他华语不是太好,后来进步很快,我们很容易沟通了。他对人友善,体贴,细心,在法庭上有条不紊的提出许多专业的问题进行反驳,真的让我非常感动。
新加坡的法律程序很长,一度时期我以为各种压力都准备放弃了,是他鼓励我并且申请减免我的律师费。这对一个异国他乡的人来说是莫大的温暖。
wilbur先生是一个值得信赖的人,是一个学识渊博的学者,是一个有经验,有爱心的专业律师,更是一个难得的朋友!
谢谢您给我的鼓励和帮助!
祝您一切顺利!

wilson wong,

Last year, my husband and I were fortunate to be referred to Wilbur for a matter which required legal representation. Wilbur was helpful, precise and with his help, the matter was quickly settled because when we approached his firm, the matter was stagnant without much progress for almost 2 years.
The experience to work with Wilbur and his firm has been satisfactory at acceptable cost too.
Thank you Wilbur and his team.

Mrs. Cheung,
