A SAMPLE OF CLIENT TESTIMONIALS
“I turned to Dorothy to assist me where all others had failed. I had four previous lawyers, who either dismissed me, took easy options, or ignored the facts of my case. In desperation to seek justice, and in my hour of need, I was recommended to PKWA. Dorothy Tan LISTENED to my case, and worked tirelessly over the holidays and weekends to meet impossible deadlines… If Dorothy and her team decides to champion your cause, you should consider yourself very fortunate.” – CT, after winning his Court of Appeal case with PKWA Law
“I was at a loss when the first lawyer firm informed me on the court day itself that they gave up. I chanced upon PKWA LAW after I had dried my tears. Within 3 months, I got what that was deemed impossible!” – Ms N
