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, who is the Head of Legal in an international bank in Singapore, 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 a lawyer in private practice specialising in banking and finance advisory and litigation, with experience in 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 is a practising lawyer specialising in commercial litigation, arbitration and mediation. He also advises on a wide range of Singapore legal issues including personal data protection, employment law, criminal law, wills and probate. Mr Lim is presently also a community interpreter with the Association and volunteers his time to promote greater legal awareness among the Deaf community.
