Instrumental in a favorable outcome! Sophia Lai was instrumental in gathering the facts of my case, researching the information that was obtained, and connecting the dots. Sophia Lai was very patient through the process and was able to ask the correct questions that exposed the truth.
Amu Pillay
SK LAI & PARTNERS is a law firm that is unlike the rest. They are quick in getting things done, sends periodic updates so that clients are not left wondering what is the progress and send reminders on Court dates. What would usually take 5 to 6 months to complete, SK Lai did it within the shortest time possible. I have never experience lawyers chasing client for necessary documents when it’s usually the other way around. It is a very refreshing experience when compared to previous law firms (some are big names in the industry) that I’ve used. I am very impressed with their client management, efficiency and professionalism. Highly recommended from a satisfied client.
