Reviews & Testimonials

  • “I’m a Belgian national living in Malaysia under the MM2H programme. As the time passed, I felt the necessity to write a properly worded will to protect my interests. I was referred to Ms Prisilla Chong and Mr Chew Jin Heng of MahWengKwai & Associates. It turned out to be the right choice. Despite all the MCO hindrances, we were able to proceed and finalise my will which was tailored to my specific requests. I would like to thank Prisilla and her team for their efficiency. The will was finalised swiftly and to my full satisfaction. I will recommend Prisilla and MahWengKwai & Associates to my friends.” – Jean-Jacques Manigart, Kuala Lumpur
  • “Mah Weng Kwai is a big law firm with a reasonable price tag for their services. I had a pleasant experience working with this law firm as they are founded on the premise of truth and righteousness. They try their best to settle the case out of court. At the start of the case, they did a thorough due diligence to make sure that they are representing a credible client. My case was assigned to a young lawyer Ms Prisilla and Mr Chew, a pupil in Chambers, to assist her. Together they did a thorough job at researching the case and compiling all the case documents.” – Ms Thavamalar, Subang Jaya
