“Simon, I can't really thank you enough for the excellent advice and generous help you've given me this year. You had absolutely no reason to go the extra mile - it made an enormous difference to me. I was basically terrified in the face of that terrible stuff and your sound words stopped me panicking and enabled me to act productively in the situation”
“My divorce was an extremely complicated affair that had gone on for over a decade, wit h no resolution. Simon was able to step in and navigate through extremely difficult and convoluted matrimonial and financial proceedings. A tremendously favourable outcome was achieved. He must be praised for his dedication, honesty, cost consciousness, and work ethic. I would like to give Simon Lim the highest possible recommendation for his help with my matrimonial affairs”
