Medical law is an area of law which governs the responsibilities of medical practitioners and the rights of patients. Notwithstanding the medical practitioners’ best intentions for the patients, occasional mistakes and carelessness are unfortunate realities of medical treatment which may result in pain, injury, financial loss or even death.

  • “We are very thankful to Jasmine who has been very supportive of us and caring through the whole process, and for her legal knowledge and expertise. She was very cool and calm, even when things got hard. No amount of money can give me my life back, but at least, with this win, we got our justice. Thank you Jasmine, and also Chee En and the MWKA team for assisting and representing us in our medical matter.” – Madam Y, Kuala Lumpur

The team was quick, responsive and alerted me to all of the highlighted issues. Even though my case involves new medical issues, the team did their best to listen and come out with the best possible solution. Thumbs up!!! Highly recommended 👌🏻” – Bashir, Kuala Lumpur
