Finding the right lawyer
Find yourself in a legal dilemma and want to get out of it? Then a trip to the lawyer’s is what you need. The list of consultation and legal services offered by the lawyers in Singapore are all-encompassing.
The most serious situation where you find yourself in need of a lawyer is when you are charged with a criminal offence or sued by someone. In this case, your lawyer will form your defence and represent you in court.
Outside of criminal matters, lawyers can advise you of the procedures involved in buying and selling a house and assist you in checking any
document related to the transaction on your behalf to ensure the title to the house is in order and properly handed over later. They also help write and manage your will and facilitate the distribution of your assets in the way you wished to your family members upon death.
If you are undergoing spousal problems, your lawyer will give you a thorough lowdown on handling divorce, separation, maintenance and custody issues.
Lawyers also come in handy when you are drafting a contract for commercial purposes. They will advise you on your rights and duties under the contract and aid you in making necessary changes to the contract so as to protect your interests.
Some key law firms you may want to consider for your needs are East Asia Law Corporation, CDiC Consultants LLP, Lim Hua Yong & Co, Thomas Chan & Company and Joyce A Tan & Partners.
