Q: I have been sued. What should I do?
A: Please calm down. People get sued every day. The most important thing is to engage a law firm to help you prepare your defence. Collect as much information you can about the court case — Who is suing you, for how much, and for what reason. Try to jot down the list of events that led to the incident. Finally, contact a law firm that can help you.
Q: Who do you recommend to handle court matters?
A: We usually recommend our law firm. If you already have a lawyer on record, we usually recommend that you stick with the lawyer that you have. We can provide a second opinion or an assessment if you require it. Sometimes clients seek an independent legal opinion to gain a second view of the legal issued involved.
Q: Can you help me to sue somebody?
A: Yes, we can if we think that you have a case. The most important point for any would-be litigant is that he requires locus standi. This means, you should be connected to the case to be able to sue. For example, Miss X has been slapped by a stranger, Miss Y, at the bus stop. Miss X has locus standi against Miss Y. Miss X’s sister, who was with her at the bus stop, does not have locus standi against Miss Y — unless Miss X happens to be physically incapacitated, or underage, in which case Miss X’s sister has locus standi as a legal representative.
Q: Can you help me with my property transaction?
A: Yes we can. We have a conveyancing department that can handle sale and purchase agreements, tenancies, leases, wills, trusts, wills, transmission, et cetera. For foreigners who wish to purchase property in Malaysia, you may have to follow the Foreign Investment Committee guidelines.
Q: How will I be charged?
A: For conveyancing transactions, you will be billed according to the Solicitors Remuneration Order 2005. For court cases, you will be billed according to the complexity of the work, the time taken up, and the value of the work. For all other matters, call us for an appointment.
Q: How do you compare with professional will-writing companies in will-writing?
A: Before professional will-writing companies came on the Malaysian scene, most people relied on law firms to write their wills. Some will-writing companies (and some insurance companies) claim that they are more specialized and hence more knowledgeable than lawyers about will-writing. A good law firms can customize the will for your needs, rather than using a “template”. Remember also that law firms can help represent you in obtaining grant of probate or letters of administration.
Q: Where are your offices?
A: We have two offices, both located in Kuala Lumpur, the busy bustling capital of Malaysia. Our main office is in Kampung Attap, Kuala Lumpur, whereas our branch office is in Bandar Manjalara, Kepong. Click here for our telephone numbers and addresses.
Q: Do you handle family law matters?
A: Yes, as a matter of fact our firm handles family law matters such as divorces, child custody, adoptions, division of deceased’s estate by probate or letters of administration, wills, et cetera.
回答: 是的，我们可以，如在我们觉得您有这个需要以及您符合条件的情况之下。最重要的一点是，您得符合出庭资格。这意味着，您得与该案件有一定的关联。例如，X小姐被一个陌生人,Y小姐在公车站打了一巴掌。显然的, X小姐符合诉讼资格, 可控告Y小姐. 然而,X小姐的姐姐(事件的目击者)，并没有控告Y小姐诉讼资格，除非X小姐是残障人士，或是未成年人，那X小姐的姐姐就有诉讼资格, 即法定代表人。
