Silvester Legal LLC is a boutique litigation and corporate firm with expertise from the best law firms in Singapore. You do not need to pay expensive lawyers for outstanding legal service. We prove that with every Client.
We advise and represent our Clients, who have grown with us. Over the years, they have become our partners. Silvester Legal’s growth is a testament to the quality of work that we do.
We know that we will only succeed if you succeed first.
From a 1-man firm, Silvester Legal LLC has grown to a small team of 6 within a short period of just 1 year. This is made possible because of the trust and recommendations from Clients as they helped to grow the firm.
At many big firms, partners do not actually do the work. At Silvester Legal LLC, Walter is involved in every file to ensure that Clients get exactly what they are paying for: outstanding legal service.
Trusts, Wills & Probate
You want to ensure that your legal matters are taken care of to ensure that should the moment arise that you are unable to conduct them yourselves, or on the unfortunate incident of your demise, your loved ones know your wishes and are able to carry them out. A well-written Will not only informs the people around you of how your estate should be dealt with.
A well-written Will provides comfort and clarity to your loved ones, making administration of your estate easier and more cost effective.
The estate lawyers at Silvester Legal LLC do not believe in form filling and express Wills. You are dealing with your life’s work and the people you care for the most. We believe that we need to spend time with you to advise you on how exactly your estate can be administered with maximum clarity and minimal fuss. We also provide Administration and Probate services by making the requisite application to Court at affordable, fixed fees. We aim to have these matters resolved as quickly and economically as possible.
