Sam Ngai

I do what a client is often unable to do; either to stand up and fight for their interests, and/or be a clear lighthouse of reason through a stormy wave of emotions.

Past Experience

Sam is well versed in conducting both simple and complex Family Law financial matters. Relying on his prior experience in Commercial Law at a mid-tier firm, Sam approaches matters with a commercial nous and sensitivity to cost-effectiveness often overlooked in Family Law.

He also prides himself on helping his clients develop practical solutions in parenting and custody matters through highly emotionally charged circumstances. Sam appreciates that arrangements relating to children will have a lasting impact long after lawyers are no longer instructed, so he ensures strategic plans and safeguards are in place to protect his clients’ interests both now and in the future.

Career Highlights

Sam previously worked in ‘blue chip’ Family Law firms in Perth dealing with a litany of Family Law matters from the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis in 2008. This exposure gave Sam a deep understanding on how Family Law interacts with specialty areas such as inheritances (received before and after separation), intra-family loans, small businesses, family trusts and farming enterprises.

Other career highlights include:

Successfully negotiating final parenting orders, by consent, in circumstances where one parent unsuccessfully solicited the murder of Sam’s client part way during the proceedings;

Successfully obtaining the Court’s leave (i.e. permission) to allow Sam’s client to proceed with her property settlement action almost 20 years after separation;

Obtaining final orders where Sam’s client received 94% of the net asset pool.
