We were recommended to Jacque Law by our company’s legal attorney. Since then, we have engaged Jacqueline and Kimberly as our attorneys to advise us on more than one matter as they have given us valuable and sound advice on our company’s matters. They have also proven to be effective in getting results. More recently, Kimberly successfully represented us in an employment law matter, for which we obtained a favourable result. We are very satisfied with their legal services, and especially appreciate their dedication to our matters, the professionalism and the high quality of the attorney work delivered.

Beware of your narcissistic spouse - 7 tips to divorce a narcissist
The term narcissism is derived from the Greek myth about the self-absorbed Narcissus who was cursed to fall in love with his own reflection in the water. Eventually, Narcissus killed himself over his unrequited love for his own image.
Narcissism can be categorized into two main types — grandiose and vulnerable narcissism. Individuals with the former tend to be charming and outspoken and often take on leadership positions. Famous figures like Donald Trump and Kanye West have been suspected to be grandiose narcissists. Vulnerable narcissists, on the other hand, possess more subtle traits and are usually characterized to be outwardly introverted and frequently shy away from the spotlight.
