He represented my brother for a case n he won the case. Along the 2 and a half year of hearing, i was around most of the time. He is a very special person, gifted n born to be just the best lawyer in Malaysia. The country lost one of the best asset. He was not only a lawyer to my brother but we considered him part of the family. I don't think i've thank him enough for every single thing that he has done. May god bless him. He will be missed dearly. To the family...i'm sorry for ur lost
