    Testimonials

    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
