What kind of company? Local/MNC? What sector?
I'm PQE 4, MNC, industries, SG qualified, LLB+LLM, base 8k + 1 mth AWS.

If its an MNC, you're definitely being underpaid.
Local company, i think you can nego for 6k sgd.

Try for 15%-20%. The best way to get this is to join an MNC. Local companies are known to be pretty stingy when it comes to paying for corporate.

Most days you don't get to choose who you represent. On the off chance you get to choose your clients, and you choose to represent the battered wives... understand that you'll be agreeing to a lot of deferred payment schemes, if you even get paid. You cannot hope to earn much if you only represent battered wives.

Work for a firm that actually does family law litigation/mediation etc, not those firms that literally ONLY do e-filing of uncontested divorces. If the only experience you get after six months is filing uncontested divorces on e-lit, that's not good learning.

I know many lawyers who only do family law and do it happily. They believe in what they do and have made peace with the downside that comes with it.

Go in with your eyes wide open.
i have never heard of deferred payment schemes. Your firm must be desperate for business. There is a high risk, u will incur cost, disbursements and never get paid. No cost on account, no talk. Doesnt matter if you represent the asshole husband. The most important thing is get paid.
