Alfred is a unique skilled lawyer. Particularly if you are an expat in Singapore as he dealt with many international cases.
I had others lawyers before him who were unable to make successful my very complex and difficult case.
I was stuck and had no solution to my family matter, and was exposed to big threats regarding my international context divorce issue.
After failing with previous lawyers then someone advised me to consult Alfred who may be the only one Singapore lawyer who was able to find a way for me.
I had crashed lot of money already on my previous lawyers and was hopeless and doubtful about getting any positive outputs but I tried anyway as I was in a troubling state.
I then met Alfred and felt that he is a confident lawyer with a good strategic plan. His approach was nothing like my previous lawyers.
I bet on him and gave him full power to find a way to my very complex matter that nobody was able to fix before.
And he made it ! Despite so many obstacles on the way. In short he made possible the impossible.
Alfred goes beyond simple administrative lawyer tasks, he is a strategy-centric lawyer and will fight hard to protect his client's interests. Beyond being professional about his work, he is someone who will advise you about personal things rightly as he had helped many people through the divorce. To me, he is not just a lawyer but also a friend.
Alfred was the only one lawyer who was able to save me from the hell that I was in, and I will be forever thankful to him.
When I first engaged Alfred I was at a difficult stage in my life and needed help and guidance with a difficult family matter. He approached my case with not only legal acumen but also a very human approach. I was in a position where I was making poor decisions and not protecting my own best interests, and Alfred helped protect me from myself. Alfred and his team took my case and built a strategy that was clear and well thought out, and provided me with a path to execute. Alfred went beyond the normal legal services and provided the hand of friendship to me, spent time to listen to my issues and provided me with practical advice, and when needed, a sympathetic ear.
Whilst my case was still active, he managed to move it forward and provided me a real hope that it could be resolved satisfactorily and he left me a clear path to rebuild my life.
Over the 18 months that I have been working with Alfred, I have gained a friend, a confidante and a mentor. I would recommend Alfred to anyone who needs a champion that will zealously protect their interests against other parties, as well as protecting them from making poor decisions that could have unintended long term negative consequences. He is a good friend, a wise mentor and a fearsome litigator.

I want to thank you for all the work you did on my case. It makes a great deal of difference to me to have my case taken care of. Your prompt action and your skillful and meticulous handling of the case brought results. I have recommended you several times and will continue to do so.
- Yvonne Lim
Often the public perceives lawyers in a negative way; but I can honestly say that Alfred has the utmost ethical standards of any lawyer that I have dealt with. He took the time to explain the particulars of my case, was always available to take my calls, always returned my calls and his assistant was equally as professional and courteous. Should I ever need legal representation, I can assure you that I will retain his firm.
- Jason Y
Alfred is not just our legal advisor but a true friend. We can trust and rely on him always.

The most caring legal firm I have had the privilege to work with and also the most driven. Their high work ethic culture permeates the entire firm. Even the phone gets answered no longer than the 2nd ring. That is professionalism of the highest degree.

Alfred is a sharp and insightful senior lawyer based in Singapore with a keen sense of where to go with important commercial litigation.
We came to Dodwell & Co in search of options and legal resource to handle a sensitive commercial matter. Not only was he helpful at the start with offering different creative solutions including the legal, he also drew up a blueprint as to the legal options available and recommended an optimal strategy.
His wealth of experience, partly garnered from Drew and Napier, shows in that he made some fast early good decisions in our case and crafted the necessary to enable us a strong position.
When it came to the groundwork of actually executing court orders, Alfred was not one to shirk rolling up his well-pressed sleeves, conducting and managing a range of court-directed operations to efficient and productive outcomes. Under difficult circumstances he was alert to pick up and hunt down important evidence to our case.
Beyond simply the courtroom and office meetings, Alfred is personable with mannerisms that reinforce the human element to friendly oftentimes simple advice and going the extra mile beyond just the legally necessary to enable better outcomes for his clients.
I have worked with Dodwell + Co on a building defects claim. Alfred is an experienced lawyer who has been more than capable in providing professional legal advice to the client to protect them and their interest. Alfred has been patient and provided invaluable legal advice to guide the client through every stage of the process. Alfred's hard work and focus has definitely helped the client achieve their goal!

- Oliver Tan, Managing Director of a Leading Media Company (Intellectual Property Infringement Action)
Alfred’s honesty has always set him heads above the rest. He treated me as a person, not someone to make money from. He listened to me and told me the most important thing was to get well first. That meant so much to me and I didn’t feel I was a victim twice. I would hire him first, last, and beyond, and anyone who needs a lawyer should do the same.
- Fazilah Rahman (Criminal Matter)
Having faced with an extremely tough and tricky situation and at my wits end even after a change of 2 lawyers, I was extremely grateful to have met Alfred as he gave me a glimmer of hope. From the first meeting to the last, he is a lawyer who makes sure he gives his all in terms of strategy, consultation and professionalism. He makes sure that every meeting, along with his assisting lawyer is fruitful and productive. Even when met with one roadblock after another, his sharp and witty mind along with his expertise has so far helped me weave through the issues that I am facing at the moment. Alfred is more than just your lawyer. He is your friend, your counsellor and your life coach. Thank you once again Alfred, I could not thank you enough for working so hard for your clients yet being so understanding at the same time.
Special thanks also to his assisting lawyer Pui Yee who has been following up on my case even on weekends and have so far been very responsive to my queries.
Last but not least, Thank you to the rest of the team, Noor and the administrative team for all the help and support. I have nothing but praises for Dodwell + Co and they are definitely a law firm I would highly recommend to anyone who needs legal help. My fiancee J and I are extremely grateful no matter what the outcome might be.
- J and Ivan S. (Criminal Matter)
Words cant express how grateful we are to Mr Alfred Dodwell for all the things that he has done for my son who is currently serving time in prison.
He was the beacon of light when my son was caught after he absconded and helped us through the tough times when he learnt of my son's plight.
He takes pride in his profession and is more than a lawyer to us. He treats my son like his own and always gives him encouragement.
He still keeps in touch with us and is more like a family friend. To-date, my son still writes to him and updates him on his journey. I would gladly recommend him without
any reservation to anyone who needs a lawyer.
-M. Chua (Criminal Matter)
ALFRED DODWELL is a legal-beaver class-act. A very capable and professional attorney, who acts with his heart and his head and his levels of organisation, attention to detail, and follow-up are exceptional. I have enjoyed working with him in a recent prolonged Football Association of Singapore (FAS) case on defamation and I can distinctly vouch that he is a true professional who exemplifies a hard work ethic, persistence and a strong passion for his clients’ needs. In a legal-nutshell, he has always exceeded my expectations!
-Suresh N., Award-winning Journalist/Editor (Defamation)
No words can succinctly describe the level of gratitude I possess for Mr Dodwell, who performed past his necessary scope as my lawyer to aid me through my most trying moments.
A true professional with a sharp eye for the minute details, I have no doubt he will go all out to secure his clients' best interests, as he did for me.
More than merely my defense counsel, I regard him as my mentor and an inspiration to model after.
Thank you good sir for believing in me, I'll see you on the outside.
God bless you always.
