A well written, informative and easy to read book not only detailing the intricacies of Australian law, but also about Raymond's journey from his humble beginnings, beliefs and starting his own law firm. It is not only a factual book to guide you, but has an important human and real life element to it. I will be recommending this book to my clients especially those in their own business and those going through marital relation issues. Many of the guides and hints are really helpful in getting people to think beforehand the difficulties and challenges that they may face (legally) whether in business, estate planning and family relations.
I’m an engineer by trade with no legal knowledge whatsoever, but this book really shines a light to the Australian legal system in a nutshell, presented in day-to-day language, without the full legal jargons. I love how Raymond showed us example of his cases to better explained his points. Adding a bit of his personal stories in the book also added flavours to it. I really admire his inspiring life journeys from humble beginning in Singapore, went through all the hardships there until his comfortable life now in Australia.
Great factual story of how one of Perth's leading lawyers started from humble beginnings in Asia to become one of Western Australia's top lawyers. Raymond's book is inspiring, easy to read, and also a good guide to family law if you live in Australia. The book emphasizes that hard work and knowledge are the fundamental building blocks of a lawyer who is successful for both for his family and clients. The importance of family and contributing to society balances the author's success as a lawyer and a barrister.
