Criminal Law (Singapore) Please call 6534 1328
Welcome to Criminallaw.sg. If you are looking for help, you have come to the right place- W.M Low & Partners. We are a criminal & family law practice with 25 years experience.
Are you or your loved ones feeling lost or apprehensive because of impending police investigations or are you facing a criminal charge?
You will need an experienced criminal lawyer, who is very committed and responsible, who is willing and able to give your matter immediate attention and top priority.
Why ? Because you are facing potentially large fines and/or a jail sentence which can turn your life upside down. Your career may be at stake and badly managed publicity in the press about your case can potentially more stressful than the trial itself.
Whether it is simple charge or a complicated offence, see a lawyer early- see us.

Even if it is a public holiday, just call.
We analyse your case from the prosecution’s angle and assess your liability from the Judge’s perspective. We will study your evidence and then prepare the Best Case theory.
We are committed lawyers – we take pride in our reputation and satisfaction of a professional job well done.
Why choose us ?
25 year experience lawyers in the senior category, excellent results thus far, commitment & compassion? Law Firm in existence since 1994? Several acquittals or withdrawals of the charges? Good clients’ testimonials?
No, these are not good enough reasons.
Most of our clients come to us on recommendation of their good friends, relatives, other lawyers and even some from the force. They had been through the process with us.
Some of them got off completely, some got off with a warning or a fine.
Even those who served a custodial sentence still recommend us- because they saw and appreciate how hard we fought for their rights, our conservative advice and our approach on cutting damage, and our support to them and their family pre and post-trial.
We try our best to find a solution for you even if, on the facts, it looks like there is none.
Chose us only if you feel we are able to solve your problem.
We have to analyse deeply and think of the best approach for a solution before we decide to take up your matter. We believe everyone deserves a second chance.

Some of clients’ comments (names changed and facts limited for confidentiality):
Forgery charges (bank and government documents) S465 charges
“I got off lightly – just a fine for a serious offence. I did not go to jail and lose my job. An amazing results which was way beyond my expectations. I strongly recommend Mr Low and his team from W.M Low & Partners. It was a very good mitigation plea. U got me a good psychiatrist report too. Thank you WM.”
Mr M, engineer
Theft charge (380 reduced to s 379)
“Thank you Low for your great help. Every lawyer I spoke to said I have to go in to jail cos I am a 3rd time offender. I was mentally prepared to go in. I got my life back and am now very happy- I can’t thank you enough. Your research on the MOH guidelines to doctors save the day. The overdose of the medicine affected me but nobody believe initially”
Mr D, an airline professional.
Couple on maid abuse offence (s)
“Wow, WM when the police are not proceeding and case is closed, we are so happy... my husband and I simply cannot afford any publicity…..and, now I know why you said we have to work hard, work fast and work smart”
Mr & Mrs B, civil servants.
“WM, honestly when I came to you initially I did not do so because I think you are the best for me, but because I thought that you will do it for me for free. Well anyway, very good job done- I like your mitigation very much- very thorough with the facts and the precedents- especially on why I ought to be fined only.”
“You bothered to try to persuade the prosecution not to appeal in light of my remorse and the exceptional facts. I appreciate that”
Mr F, a fellow lawyer
