I engaged PKWA for my contested divorce both before and after the 3-year mark and had no regrets doing so. Their fees were transparent, which made financial planning a lot easier. I would like to especially thank Ms Charlene Nah and Mr Jason Mak for their extraordinary help during that trying period of time. Despite the circumstances, I felt that Ms Charlene was genuinely trying to help. I would definitely turn to them in future for legal advice.

My heartfelt thanks to Charlene Nah and Christina Lim for their professionalism in Family Law. Not only are they strong in advice, but they are also empathetic and are always available for my matters. Because of their experience and confidence level, their guidance throughout the difficult months of process, I can rest my case to them and end my final judgement with a reasonable outcome.

Lydia Lim

My family and I are stoked that PKWA Family Law has helped us so much in the matter where MCA is concerned, we struggled with our previous lawyer who was not only sloppy in their work but defensive. A lot of time was wasted while the case was developing. When we switched to PKWA, we were wowed by the efficiency and responsiveness of all legal personnel involved in our matters. We saw the light at the end of the tunnel just within a timeframe of fewer than 2 months. Everything was swift and precise. Thank you, Charlene, Christina for the hard work.

Samantha Lim

Jason Mak and Charlene Nah have both been most patient and professional throughout the entire process. I could totally trust them and had the emotional support I needed to get issues sorted out, especially also going through this difficult COVID/retrenchment period. Thank you, Jason and Charlene, for being there with me, providing me with better options and directions in riding through my divorce proceedings.

We had engaged PKWA with Ms Charlene Nah and Ms Yeow Ing Yee representing us. Both of them are professional in handling our cases and provided us with invaluable insights. We managed to get a satisfying outcome of our case. Highly recommended for all family law matters.

I have engaged PKWA services on a Grant of Probate recently. This is the second time that I have worked with PKWA on legal matters. PKWA staff have been very professional and efficient in handling my legal matters. Special thanks to Christina Lim and Charlene Nah for their follow-up on the matter. They kept me updated regularly on the progress and settled issues expeditiously. PWKA would be my preferred choice if I require assistance in legal matters in future. I would highly recommend their services to those who need assistance in legal matters.

I am glad that I have made the right decision to engage PKWA in my divorce matters. They have acted fast, efficient and professional in their capacity and PKWA is transparent in the fees too. I would like to thank Miss Christina, Miss Charlene and Mr.Yong for their help in expediting the whole process.

I would like to express my appreciation to Mr. Lim Chong Boon on behalf of the late Mr & Mrs. Chua’s family for offering service to us. And also a big thank you to the team Ms. Charlene Nah, Ms. Christina Lim, Mr. Tan Jack Long and Ms. Alice Wong for their time, professional services and effort. The team is prompt in their response and were very patient in getting the Grant Letters of Administration and the Legal Guardianship for my nephew and niece. The whole process was very smooth without any hiccup and hassle-free. I greatly appreciate having PKWA Law help us through the most difficult times. Thanks once again for your time and patience to handle our cases. We definitely will recommend PKWA Law firm to friends and families.

Words cannot express my thanks to PKWA and to Ms. Charlene Nah and Mr. Jason Mak for their kind help. My divorce case went through mediation, district court hearing and then appeal hearing. It went on for more than two years and to make the matters even more complicated, I am doing this from overseas. Charlene and Jason are there with me every step of the way, providing their professional service and also some personal touch to make the case easier for me emotionally. They are very experienced with Singapore Family Law and always have my best interest at heart. At the latter part of the district hearing and appeal hearing, I was struggling with legal fees, because the case went on much longer than I expected, due to my ex-husband's stubbornness. Charlene went out of her way to help me cope with the difficulties, even encouraged and helped me to represent myself at appeal court. The outcome is very favorable and there's no way I would be able to accomplish that without Charlene and Jason's kind help. Divorce is unfortunate and difficult in its nature, and you'd need your lawyers to have your best interest at heart at all times to overcome the difficulties. PWKA is such a law firm you can fully trust. I can't thank them enough.
