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.

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 lal 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.

Lydia Lim

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.

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.
