Introducing the team members of Messrs. Adillah A Nordin, advocates & solicitors.
We have Kak Midah, the Sifu of our Conveyancing Department who has been working for Apak since 1984; Kak Faridah, Apak's most efficient PA since 1984 and also the heavyweight of our Litigation Department; Eyta, the backbone of our Conveyancing Department who has been with us since 1992; Zurina, our learned Conveyancing Legal Assistant (my left wing) who has been with us since she chambered in 2003; Faizah, who is assisting in our Conveyancing Department and Mas, who is assisting in our Litigation Department; Pakcik Longchek takes care of other things like banking & posting (and more importantly - driving my kids around!) and of course Cherryl, the first person you meet as you enter our office (she brightens up the front desk).
Unfortunately when this picture was taken, Apak was in a meeting; Farah our learned Litigation Legal Assistant (my right wing) was also in a meeting at a client's office & Saad our Land Office Assistant was at the land office. So the team picture is not exactly complete.
Well, what I want to say is that these people are the other part of me, my second family. We have grown together since my Firm was set up in 2002. Like all other families, we sometimes have our arguments and frictions. We have our ups and downs. We have our fair share of hurts and disappointments. We have gone through many, many things.
But, above all, we know that we have each other and we can depend on each other. We have LOTS of good times together. We work together, laugh together and cry together. We are interdependent on one another not just for work, but also for other much more complex things which can't be explained or measured. It's the invisible tie that binds. We are a Team.
I am mighty proud of my team members. They really are my second family.
