As part of the GJC family law team, Theresa works closely with Head Lawyer, Ms. Gloria James. Theresa understands that clients seeking a family lawyer tend to be unfamiliar with the legal system.

As such, she emphasises on guiding clients through what is almost certainly a stressful period in their lives. She is patient and attuned to each individual client’s concerns so that she is better able to help them understand the legal process and their options at each stage.

She encourages clients to explore mediation and alternate dispute resolution where there is a possibility of a fair and amicable settlement.

However, she is always aware of the need to protect her clients’ interests. Theresa works hand-in-hand with clients to achieve a satisfactory outcome with the least emotional and financial distress.

Theresa speaks English and Mandarin.

Theresa has experience in the following aspects of family law:

  • Uncontested and contested matrimonial proceedings
  • Annulment
  • Variation applications
  • Personal protection orders
  • Child custody issues including relocation
  • Lasting Power of Attorney and Mental Capacity Act
