I would recommend Devaraj for his legal services. Upon resigning from my previous job, I was informed by my employer that I was unable to work in the same field for other companies for at least 5 years. I was rather lost and unaware of how I am going to seek for future jobs. As such, I decided to consult Devaraj on whether such a term could be binding against me. Devaraj went through all my contractual documents and told me that such a clause could not be binding against me. He even explained to me the basic of how contract law works and how some onerous terms cannot be enforceable. As such, I was able to seek employment in other companies. I highly recommend Devaraj as he did not only help solve my problem but educated me on the law of contract.Thilaga, 7 November 2017
After months of having my salary withheld, I decided that it was time to take legal action against my employer. I approached Devaraj from IRB Law and he exceeded my expectations by making the process so painless. He managed to convince my employer to issue my salary by telling them why it would be prudent to do so in his Letter of Demand. I am very glad with Devaraj’s approach with my matter, he helped me save so much money in legal fees by steering my matter away from litigation. I could not be happier with the outcome.David, 7 November 2017
Devaraj agreed to take on my case in the midst of financial uncertainty when I was just retrenched from my job. I knew I might not be able to pay him, yet he told me not to worry about the legal costs and allowed me to pay him through a very reasonable installment plan. He fought for my previous employer to compensate me with fervent passion, and was ultimately victorious.. I would highly recommend anyone with employment issues to seek Devaraj’s advise.Eugene Tan, 7 November 2017
Devaraj’s services provided were remarkable and we would recommend him. My company hired Devaraj to assist us with drafting a couple of letter of demands to our sub-contractors to demand for money. During the initial meeting, Devaraj handle our claims professionally and timely although some amounts we wanted to demand was rather small. The billing rates were very reasonable as well for a letter of demand. Devaraj’s letter of demand were very concise and powerful and had put some legal pressure to the subcontractors who subsequently returned the money they owe us.Shobhana, 7 November 2017
I am extremely thankful to my legal counsel Devaraj, for his dedication and professionalism towards my trial case. From the initial start, he advised me on all the different possibilities and pitfalls, with great clarity and details. He ensured that I was fully aware with the different legal documents required to be submitted to court and was fully aware of all the complexities of the case. Most importantly, he also helped me keep clear-headed whenever I was angry or flustered. Thank you DevarajAbdullah
I was being investigated by the police for having possession of offensive weapons. At that moment, I was depressed and clueless on what to do. As such, I have decided to contact Devaraj. He replied to me promptly and wasted no time to fix an appointment with me. He layout the situation I was in, identifying the offence and pointing it out in the relevant statute. Furthermore, he pointed out on the possible steps I could do at this point. Also, he was very transparent and open with the legal fees required. Following the consultation, he helped me send a letter of representation to the AGC. The letter of representation was a huge mitigating factor as the AGC issued a stern warning instead of pressing charge. I would want to thank Devaraj on his professional legal advice.James
I engaged Devaraj regarding an employment contract that I had issues with. Before heading down to the office, Devaraj contacted me to inform me specifically how much the consultation fees would be. Furthermore, he gave me a detailed list of documents that I was required to bring in the office. Devaraj was very explicit in his instructions and straight up with the consultation fees. During the consultation, Devaraj went through the contract terms patiently and he was able to identify a particular clause that I myself was unable to do so. As such, my previous employer could not hold me liable for the contract itself. Thank you Devaraj for your service as I felt his professionalism from the very start.Beng Boon

I would recommend Devaraj for helping settle personal injury related matters. I was injured while carrying out work during my course of employment. However, I was unaware on how I could go about with being compensated. I engaged Devaraj and he immediately arrange for an appointment to take down my statement. After so, he was efficient in sending out the appropriate letters to the right defendants. He was very effective and efficient during the whole process. It saved me a lot of trouble and I was able to successfully get back my compensation. Thank you Devaraj for ensuring that I would be able to get back my compensation. Santhai
Thank you Devaraj for helping me draft an amazing tenancy contract agreement. I was residing in Hong Kong but had bought a property in Singapore for investment. I engaged Devaraj to help draft a tenancy agreement for me to allow the property to be let out. Unlike other lawyers, Devaraj was very detailed and well versed with particular terms to be included in the contract to safeguard my interest as a landlord. Devaraj submitted the draft copy to me and highlighted certain clauses out which he had added to ensure that my interest is protected. I appreciated the effort taken by Devaraj in breaking down the whole drafting process.Bosco So
Devaraj represented me through a criminal prosecution trial. At the beginning, the situation was bleak. Devaraj expertly analyzed my case, and made me aware of options I was not aware of. He helped me to understand the possible outcomes and make an informed decision about pleading or going to trial. I would recommend him to anyone looking for detailed and intelligent representation. Throughout my case, I felt that he was going far beyond the basics, thinking of arguments and legal tools to represent me. The outcome was favorable, and I could not recommend him more.Gareth Tan
Devaraj is a “new-age” generation legal advisor who’s constantly aware of client’s needs and offers practical advice and solutions. There’s a unique personal touch from him to ensure that the legal terms are easy to digest and understand by a layman. Engaging him to deal with the intellectual property rights behind my company’s name and logo was a wise choice. He was able to effectively understand my company concept which is fairly a new concept in the market. I would recommend him to anyone.Michael Oh
I was a young and rash young offender who assaulted my employer in the moment of anger. However, Devaraj had been very patient with me and did not give up on me despite me being rude to him. Most importantly, he helped me see that I should seek justice with compassion, and not revenge. The past 100 days, Devaraj have seen me evolving mentally and emotionally. Devaraj, you have opened my mind to alternative ways of solving my problems.Nicholas Lim
I am from Dutch and I have engaged Devaraj services to aid me in settling a case where my company received a letter on how we had “pass off” as some other local Singapore firm. To my pleasant surprise, Devaraj was beyond expectation. Efficient, detail oriented, considerate, knowledgeable. We were very fortunate and happy to run into Devaraj’s firm in dealing with SG legal system, not easy for an expat. He clearly knows how to make and present a case.Mr Tomland Birch
Devaraj helped me out in a case in which my landlord refused to refund my deposit. I would definitely recommend him not just because he won the case but also because of the overall experience. I contacted him through the website and he went over my case and explained me the options that I could try. Not anything to hide, but I talked to few others lawyers too and but I liked Devaraj’s approach for the case the best as she had been very transparent and upfront with the legal costs. While he worked with me to help recover my deposit, I was really impressed by his knowledge and the way he approaches the case. At every step, he was preparing for events if the hearing ends up with a negative result for us. I couldn’t have foreseen all the cases myself and would definitely recommend he once again.Bob Lee
I contacted Devaraj to handle a debt recovery matter with my former Singapore employer. I am based in the London and all correspondence was via email. From my initial contact Devaraj immediately replied, effectively understanding the matter I wished to resolve. He was extremely efficient and all his correspondence was very prompt, clear and concise. With his prompt and clear action my debt recovery matter was quickly settled. Even though, I was not in Singapore, my matter was resolved at such a quick pace that is why I recommend him.Jessie Lim
Devaraj gets the job done and him services are affordable. As my grand-father passed away without a will leaving some shares behind, we instructed him to obtain (i) a letter of administration and (ii) a contract for a share transfer form. Later on, we found out that we did not need the contract. Devaraj brought that to our notice and reminded us about it and offered to refund us, without us prompting. I would recommend him services for getting a job honestly done. The integrity factor is something that leave an impression.Mr Lim
14. I appreciate Devaraj professional and diligent work in getting the Grant of Letter of Administration on my father’s assets that was successfully all finished this month. I will recommend his service to anyone that needs a court order for their family member. Furthermore, the fees are reasonable and affordable. And he patiently broke down all the technical legal jargons making it easy for a layman to understand.Mr Pong
Mr Devaraj is a very professional lawyer in Singapore. He always promptly replied to my e-mails and sometime late into the evening. As my Legal issues was in Singapore and I was at the time was in Thailand, he attended court proceedings on my behalf so saving me a few trips to Singapore. He often keeps me up to date with the proceedings and I would definitely recommend him to any friends or family who may require a lawyer there. His rates are very reasonable for a first class service.Mrs karajuni Miu
