Faith Cheok – Senior Solicitor of Policy and Law Reform

Faith went to law school in Singapore, at the National University of Singapore. Since her admission in 1990, Faith has worked in a variety of settings in Singapore and Western Australia, almost always using her law qualifications. In her previous life, Faith has been in private practice; in listed and private in-house property development companies; teaching law subjects to foreign students; real estate sales; and, since 2008, in community law.

Faith cut her teeth in community law at CCLSWA, first as a solicitor and then moved into management as Principal Solicitor and later as Acting Manager.  Faith worked as Principal Legal Officer at Mental Health Law Centre for two years from October 2016.

Faith is very pleased and excited to return to CCLSWA in the newly-created role of Senior Solicitor of Policy and Law Reform. She feels delighted and privileged to resume working with her wonderful former colleagues such as Managing Solicitor Gemma Mitchell, Senior Solicitor Roberta Grealish, and other solicitors Prachi Aggarwal and Georgina Molloy. In her new role, Faith aims to contribute to enhanced consumer protection for WA consumers.

When not at work, Faith can be found exercising, drinking good red wine with others, baking (and avoiding burning) sweets for her family, reading, or trying to practise mindfulness. Faith is committed to lead and mentor younger practitioners in her talk and walk.
