Our free legal clinic service is provided by three volunteer lawyers – Ms Lynette Koh, Mr Clement Ee and Mr Jaryl Lim – who have generously given their time and expertise.
Ms Koh, a practising lawyer focusing on corporate and finance work, is profoundly deaf in her left ear. She first set up this free legal clinic in 2007 as a way of helping a cause that is close to her heart. Prior to her current role, she was Head of Legal at an international bank and also has a decade of private practice experience specialising in banking and finance advisory and litigation, commercial disputes and civil litigation.
Mr Ee is a lawyer in private practice and his practice focuses on community law (matrimonial, estate, and criminal matters). He also has experience in corporate law, civil litigation, intellectual property and conveyancing.
Mr Lim has been a practising lawyer since 2018 with a portfolio in corporate and commercial law, insolvency and dispute resolution (including domestic and cross-border disputes).
He has a speciality practice in personal law matters such as wills, probate, mental capacity and family law, and also regularly advises on a wide range of Singapore legal issues such as personal data protection and employment law.
Mr Lim started learning SEE2 and later Singapore Sign Language from the Association since 2014 and was a Community Interpreter from 2015 to 2018. He now volunteers his time to promote greater legal awareness among the d/Deaf community and has been on the panel of the Association’s legal clinic since 2019.
