Testimonials

We are very pleased with our choice to engage Jacque Law LLC as our company counsel.  Jacqueline and Kimberly are extremely responsive and knowledgeable.  We particularly appreciate the team’s meticulous attention to details and the sound advice rendered to us.  They would provide us with a comprehensive road map outlining the next steps and to suggest commercial minded solutions to our queries.  At all times, we felt assured by their professionalism and their work product. 

Mr Jaydee Lin, Managing Partner of Raffles Family Office

I engaged Jacque Law in a personal matter. I felt very comfortable with them and they were a great help providing me with advice which is both sound and practical. The quality of work and professionalism is not any less than what I have experienced with major law firms. Kimberly’s attention to details and prompt updates also made me feel that I was in a safe pair of hands.

Mr Kelvin Chua

In the court room, Jacqueline was tenacious, smart and unbeatable. She out-researched, out-played and out-witted the opposing counsel and witnesses, and was tremendously successful in exposing falsehoods and presenting a truthful picture of events in court.

Mr Chiang CF

Divorces can end up being adversarial and mine was especially acrimonious. I was very impressed with Jacqueline's ability to come up with creative solutions to resolve deadlocks as well as reduce the tension in the process. 

Mr Cheah

Despite coming up against lawyers from a large global firm specializing in motor accident claims, she managed to get a positive outcome for us, where the High Court held that we were only 10% liable for the accident, which was the lowest ever percentage given to a cyclist in a road traffic accident. 

Mr Hodgson

Some children may witness constant fighting, and have also been used by their parents as messengers or pawns in the divorce battle.
