I have recently received the judgment from the Family Courts for my divorce case. From a seemingly hopeless scenario, to the point I consulted Rebecca, it is a ruling that is truly way, way beyond what I could expect. Not only does this conclude to my 3-year long tedious divorce process, bringing huge relief, this Court ruling has also very much restored my faith in the Singapore judicial system as well. This is all due to the hard work of Rebecca in making sure that everything was inside the documents and emotional guidance provided.Ms. Tan
I have used Rebecca’s services for divorce / maintenance matters. I have met several lawyers before that and among others I found that Rebecca had a sincere desire to help. Rebecca had a personalized approach towards handling my case even though I was struggling with finding time to going down to the office. Rebecca made things better by allowing me to contact her with other methods rather than dropping in the office. The support provided by her helped me got over the divorce process smoother.Ms. Lim

She ensured that the divorce process would not put too much pressure on the kids as well. Highly recommended.Mr. Amin
I engaged Rebecca to assist me in my Syariah divorce. My case was rather different given that I am working overseas and unable to return to Singapore for the actual hearing. However, Rebecca assisted me in successfully persuading the Court and thankfully, the Court allowed my application. I am relieved that Rebecca had helped me fight for such a decision which save me the extra costs required to fly in and out of the country.Aizza

I would like to recommend Rebecca. When my father was considering writing his will, and getting my grandfather’s LPA done, Rebeca was instrumental in the process. Rebecca and her firm helped translate terms into Chinese for my grandfather to understand, ensuring that he is fully equipped with the consequences and felt at eased when faced with many documents to sign. I highly recommend Rebecca as she demonstrated an outstanding level of care for their clients.Yuxuan
Rebecca provided practical advice and on the selection of our donees for our LPAs, as well as the selection of guardians and trustee of our estate. On the day of signing of our wills, Rebecca patiently ran through a couple of scenarios, so that we could really think through what we want to happen under each scenario. Our wills were thus better written to ensure that it could answer to different situations. Rebecca ensured that our queries and concerns pertaining to the LPAs and wills were all answered. I had an overall positive experience at IRB Law LLP.Jeanette Soh
We were always keen to have a will written, but due to fears of a hassle and technical procedure, we have been often deterred. We were absolutely clueless of what to state in a will, especially when it came to the appointment of the guardians for our children. Upon engaging Rebecca, she was very patient and understood our concerns and recommended us an appropriate will suitable for couples with young children. Rebecca approach is gentle and caring, always providing a clear and sincere perspective.Mr. Tan

Although it was a small sum of money, Rebeca continued to maintained her professionalism and ensured that the case proceeded on smoothly. Furthermore, she worked carefully on the case and constantly contacted me to update me. Fortunately, I was able to get the money back and it is all due to high professionalism standard maintain by Rebeca even though it is a fairly small sum.Eng. Jie
For a letter of administration, I was caught in a situation with my 1st engaged lawyer, who is not from this IRB Law LLP The process did not went through and the matter was left unsolved for a couple of months. As such, I have decided to engage Rebecca. To my surprise, Rebecca. declined to take up my case but out of professionalism to let my 1st lawyer settle his mistake. I will recommend others to her as she still gave me some advice out of good will to handle the 1st lawyer. For this, she has shown how the firm has a value of integrity and putting the clients best interest first.Lynette Xu
