I was named as the executor in my late uncle’s will and needed to find an estate lawyer to assist with obtaining the Grant of Probate for my late uncle’s estate. I was recommended to Jacque Law by my relative – who used Jacque Law for his estate planning and preparation of his will. The probate process was a hassle free experience for me. The Grant of Probate was extracted quickly within a month and their rates were reasonable.
When I first filed for a contested divorce, I was represented by another divorce lawyer. I went through the first round of the family court mediation process and felt that I was not getting the guidance and advice I required on the divorce process. I was asking for child maintenance, alimony and my fair share of the matrimonial home. However, I felt I was always on the defensive and my then lawyer did not appear to be advancing my needs. It was a stressful period for me as I often had to worry about the progress of my divorce proceedings. A friend of mine then recommended Jacqueline to me for a second opinion as Jacqueline was assisting her with her child custody and maintenance case in the family courts. Initially, I only wanted to seek a second legal opinion to see how I can improve my position, however, after my first consultation with Jacqueline and Wei Chiat, I was impressed with their strategy and their knowledge of family law. I felt that my needs were put first and they were approachable and reassured all my doubts. I made a decision for Jacque Law to represent me in my divorce – a decision which I did not regret. Eventually, I managed to achieve a settlement of the divorce case with my ex-husband, and I am pleased with the outcome and very satisfied with the legal advice I received.
My sons and I would like to express our most sincere gratitude to Jacqueline and Jerold, following the successful outcome you have achieved for me through negotiations and mediation, hence concluding our medical negligence law suit filed against a local hospital.
Through these months, we have always felt assured that our legal case was in good hands. You have been very patient with us and our questions as laymen, and explained your rationale and actions to us. We were confident that we have made the best, informed decisions in this case, guided by your advice and expertise.
I would like to say I appreciate all that has been done. Thank you!
Ms JY Tan
I engaged Jacqueline for a potential medical negligence matter, which was resolved through mediation.
Jacqueline was very empathetic towards my predicament and transparent with her legal advice. Her team was stellar as well; responsive, detailed and thorough.
Thank you to you and your team for your help! Your kindness and informality took the pressure off a stressful situation, which was immensely helpful for me.

Excellent service, Jacqueline and Maolin are patient and very professional. I engaged the law firm to advise and represent me as my attorneys in a medical negligence law suit. Both of them guided me and my husband throughout the whole legal process which lasted more than a year. During this time, they were able to explain to us all our queries and we felt assured with their guidance and advice. Will highly recommend others who require legal services to them.

The Silent Struggle: Importance of one’s Mental Capacity
Mental capacity is a fundamental aspect of our cognitive abilities, enabling us to make decisions, process information, and understand the world around us. However, in some cases, individuals may experience a gradual or sudden decline in mental capacity, leading to significant challenges in their daily lives.
Loss of mental capacity can occur due to various factors, including aging, neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia, brain injuries, stroke, mental health disorders, or intellectual disabilities. The decline in mental capacity can manifest differently in individuals, affecting their ability to communicate, manage daily tasks, and maintain relationships.
As such, it is becoming more and more important to make a Lasting Power of Attorney so that you can be prepared for the unexpected.
Steps you may wish to take if you are a victim of a medical negligence claim
The consequence of an unfortunate event occurring due to a doctor’s negligence can be severe and at times, the injury can be long-term. What can you do if you have suffered injury as a result of a doctor’s action during a medical treatment? Potentially, you may have a claim to an action in tort against the doctor (i.e. medical negligence).
If you are facing a potential medical negligence issue against your doctor, you should seek legal advice as soon as possible because such a claim is only valid for a period of 3 years after the day you have knowledge of the injury which was caused by the potential breach.

Child custody during and after divorce – Dangers of parental alienation
If you are newly divorced, undergoing a divorce, or considering separating from your spouse, we understand that this is not an easy time for you. If you and your spouse/former spouse have a child or children together, the situation can be even tougher.
During a time when tension between parents is at its highest and conflict regarding parenting responsibilities and access to children arises, some may worry that the spouse/former spouse may resort to parental alienation in an effort to control and hinder the emotional relationship the children would otherwise forge with them.
