2017 – Recently, our team of divorce lawyers won a landmark case at the Court of Appeal. This decision has been cited and followed in subsequent cases involving division of matrimonial assets.  

The PKWA Law team was led by Deputy Head of Family Law, Ms Dorothy Tan.

Ms Dorothy Tan successfully represented Mr Twiss in the landmark Court of Appeal case of Twiss, Christopher James Hans v Twiss, Yvonne Prendergast [2015] SGCA 52.

At the age of 25, she is one of the youngest lawyers in Singapore legal history to lead a team and to successfully argue a landmark case at the highest court in Singapore, the Singapore Court of Appeal.

This is what the client wrote in his review of Ms Dorothy Tan:

 .

“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. A very upsetting and stressful time but I will be forever grateful as Dorothy believed in my case and sought a fair and just resolution against insurmountable odds.

At every juncture, Dorothy provided realistic, honest assessments and I proceeded based on her recommendations. If Dorothy and her team decides to champion your cause, you should consider yourself very fortunate.”
