Frequently Asked Questions About ENGAGING LAWYERS in Singapore

Who is the best lawyer in Singapore?

There is no simple or definitive answer to this. The top lawyers in Singapore are typically those who provide a trusted and independent approach when offering legal services. Beyond only seeking for a top, leading lawyer, you should base your decision to choose your provider of legal services on the value proposition of the lawyer and law firm. 

Good legal representation should not be associated with the most expensive or famous  lawyer, but rather by the lawyer that truly understands and respects the distinctive nuances of each person’s legal issues when designing and delivering the appropriate legal solutions.

Why do you require a lawyer for legal matters in Singapore?

Many feel that legal matters such as contesting minor traffic violations may not require legal representation. However, hiring an attorney is critical in complex legal disputes that go through a long process in the Singapore court and can help mitigate the risk of losses and unfair and inequitable judgements and sentencing.

So when is it advised to engage a lawyer? A lawyer is essential when the law is too complicated for you to fight or plead your case without potentially serious ramifications, or when you’re looking to present an effective plea bargain or challenge evidence.

How do I find the right lawyer?

The first step to finding the right lawyer in Singapore to represent your case is understanding the type of legal matter you have at hand.

A lawyer experienced in the specific practice area which concerns your case is best placed in resolving your problem. Many feel that reaching out to lawyers who have a track record of success could make a difference in the outcome of your case.

Beyond merely the record of success, length of service can also be an indicator of expertise as well as a breadth of perspectives in terms of a stronger ability in navigating the difficulties of the legal process. 

Ultimately, find a lawyer that you trust, that you feel understands your concerns, priorities, and objectives, and one that is able to work within a fair and feasible budget that you can afford.

How do I engage a lawyer if I can’t afford it?

Several legal aid services address the issue of high legal fees in Singapore. Volunteer Lawyers of the Law Society’s Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS) and other panels such as Legal Assistance Scheme for Capital Offences (LASCO) and Consumer Association of Singapore (CASE), the Tembusu team of Pro Bono lawyers will assist you with your legal issues, at a subsidised rate or for no cost at all. Committed to supporting every individual, we offer free legal advice in Singapore for those who require it. 

What happens after I hire a lawyer?

Upon engaging a lawyer, a confidential consultation will typically be held where your lawyer will give you legal advice on the next course of action. Be it drafting an affidavit or sending a letter of demand, your lawyer will take the lead of the proceedings based on your decision. Working closely with you, your attorney will guide you through the entire legal process till the trial is over.
