What Our Clients Say

I was in a financial difficulty before I met with an unfortunate accident which gave me more trouble managing my recovery and claims. Daniel had gone out of the way to help me get through my accident claim by providing assistance along the course of it. Johnston had been very professional and helpful along the way answering my queries patiently and breaking down things i did not understand into layman terms. Both of them have been modest and never ever over promised me and always surprised me with the results. Overall I have been very satisfied all the way from the start to the end of the case. I would highly recommend Characterist LLC for any legal matters.

Seth Ong Zi Yang

Daniel Goh from Characterist LLC has really been a great help. The advice and guidance he gave was truly outstanding and beyond my expectations. He seeks to understand the situation and address the emotional time that I was going through. He has been extremely kind and patient in every step of the journey. I would highly recommend him. Thank you for the excellent service.

Michele Ow

Daniel and his team at Characterist LLC are what I'd describe as stellar. They are responsive, reasonable and reliable. I feel they have a similar work culture with my practice and beliefs - that is to care and help our patients (clients) as our family and friends. Time and again, I have referred some frustrated patients who had sub-par legal service and advice from their lawyers to Daniel and they always come back happy yet relieved. I trust in Characterist LLC. They deliver.

Daniel, I'm so grateful for your passion, dedication and professionalism. I've been directed to different law firms with different lawyers before, but you are truly the best lawyer that I've ever worked with. I wanted to thank you for the excellent work you did as my attorney. I know you have a lot of clients, so your prompt responses and attention to detail really meant a lot to me, my heartfelt gratitude to you for working tirelessly to ensure that the law worked in our favor. If it weren't for your up to tier professional skills and knowledge, the matter wouldn't have been settled by now. Thanks once again for your legal advice, time and effort.

Chong Shu Ting

I have had some bad experiences with a legal professional before Daniel was recommended to me by another professional that I work closely with. Not only is Daniel efficient, helpful, responsive and competent, amongst other things, I have to say that he has restored my faith in the legal profession, taking into account my previous experiences. I initially went to him for a civil litigation matter. He did well, gave me confidence, gained my trust and I have since gone to him for all other corporate legal matters for my company. It does not stop here, in fact, I have also referred friends / contacts to his firm for legal matters. As I can trust Daniel, I believe I can also trust the rest of his colleagues whom he has introduced, they have also proven to be equally competent. I now see Daniel not just as my lawyer but as a friend, someone I can turn to for help in times of need. I will strongly recommend him to whoever needs legal help.

Samsuddin bin Sidek

It was the first time I engaged a lawyer and Daniel, you are the one with trust and professionalism that I can count on. You kept me informed throughout the process and kept your promise on [responding] to every query I made. Prompt replies on email were another compliment to you. You went above and beyond and did everything you could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Thank you.

Having to deal with the injuries and repair works after a rear-ended accident were difficult, the thought of having to go through a personal injury claim is daunting! But I was so wrong, the process was so smooth and hassle free with Characterist! I was guided through the process from start to finish, and most importantly, I am always being updated of the progress which certainly took away a lot of stress.I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Daniel Goh for his attentiveness, honesty, patience and realistic approach throughout the whole process!

Whilst no one wishes to find themselves involved in a car crash, particularly in a country which isn't their home, Daniel Goh is a highly knowledgeable, trustworthy and diligent lawyer who will guide you through the whole claim process at ease. From the moment I was recommended to him, right through the many meetings to finalise the claim, Daniel has handled my case with absolute professionalism and I cannot recommend him more highly.

I engaged Daniel's firm for his assistance with a motor vehicle accident and apart from his being very well versed and experienced in this field, I also found him to be very thorough, prompt and responsive. I definitely feel like I am in good hands.

Sandra Aw

My experience with Characterist for my personal injury claim has been really satisfying ... Right from my first consultation, Daniel was able to capture all necessary details and gave a very comprehensive understanding ... One thing that I believe that is the most important thing about working with a law firm is being a trusted advisor, and Daniel has done that really well by showing full responsibility through actions and follow up ... He was able to close the case with a very successful settlement beyond my expectations. I am very thankful for Daniel and Jonathan for working hard on this case and facilitating a successful outcome, and I would like to recommend Characterist to anyone who needs to go through personal injury claims.
