Client Testimonials
I had the privilege of having Paksini Govender represent me while she served her articles at Singh and Associates. I found her to be a dedicated and sweet person that knew her work, her communication and explanation of the court process was very helpful to me and made me feel comfortable with my case. Her dealing with the advocates and prep work for the advocates was above board - that the 2 different advocates we used were very happy with her work.

I found that Paksini was respectful to her seniors that she worked with and with the opposing counsel as well. My case was a difficult case and with extremely difficult opposition, who were disrespectful and abusive, yet Paksini was always professional and was able to bring forward proper legal arguments.

Paksini's articles were completed before my case was concluded but her ground work and the foundation that she helped setup, resulted in judgement in my favour. Should I require legal assistance in the future, I will definitely work with Paksini again.

- Emlyn Singh
I worked with Paksini extensively during the period of 2018 to 2019. She handled my files for numerous matters, but she was particularly involved in the issues I had regarding my ex-husband’s maltreatment and abuse of my minor son and myself and his defaulting maintenance patterns.

I found her to be attentive and empathetic and she took the time to get to know me and my family to provide a well-rounded service to us all as we have made use of her services on many occasions.  Her response to matters were exceptional.  
What I liked most about her was if she was not sure about a matter, she would investigate further to be able to give me proper advice.  In court, I found her to be on top of my matters and arguing my matter to her best ability.  She knew what I wanted and so did she fight for my needs.  

I would definitely use her services in the future because dynamite definitely comes in small packages!
