Vickie has garnered extensive advisory and advocacy experiences in both civil and criminal matters since commencing her practice.  She regularly appears in court and is equally capable whether as a led junior or a sole advocate.

Vickie joined Chambers in 2017 upon successful completion of pupillage with Mr. Daniel Marash S.C., Mr. Frederick Chan, Mr. Valentine Yim, and Mr. Jeevan Hingorani.

During her pupillage, Vickie was exposed to and gained experience in a variety of practice areas including general and white-collar crimes; judicial reviews and public law; corporate and commercial; land and property; trust and probate; personal injuries; matrimonial; and interlocutory matters.

As an accredited general mediator, Vickie also has robust knowledge of mediation and can provide mediation services (whether as counsel or as mediator) to parties who prefer alternative dispute resolution.
