Madam Rafidah is Allah-sent. She made me feel comfortable talking to her about difficult and traumatic issues. She explained everything to me in a comprehensive and yet concise manner in which I could understand. Even before I decide to hire her, she did not hesitate to share everything she can share, without holding back any information unless I hire her, unlike a couple of lawyers I saw before I met her. This is something I appreciate and shows her sincerity. She worked in a no-nonsense and professional manner yet highly sensitive to my needs during those unbearable times. She was prompt to answer my many queries and greatly eased my anxiety. The Affidavit she drafted for me was impeccable and that I believe is because she made sure my issues were heard.
Asyura, her Paralegal, was also amazing in her own quiet ways, often coming up with good points for my case. I highly recommend Madam Rafidah as she is an excellent lawyer and she has a great team at R.W. Law.
Mashaaallah, Tabarakallah! I’m glad I trusted my instinct and engaged Ms Rafidah as my lawyer. I’ve spoken to few and have heard about Ms Rafidah through my friend’s friend who has engaged her previously.
Ms Rafidah explained the process of the case step by step to make me understand it well. It has been an overwhelming journey for me and i found it easy to communicate with her.
She and her team are excellent. Thank you to Asyura and Syahirah for all their help wirh my queries.
Ms Rafidah ensured she did her best to represent her client well. Alhamdulillah and my heartfelt gratitude to you for all the care and work to ensure that a fair and desirable outcomes were achieved.
Thank you for your dua and advices. I highly recommend Ms Rafidah for Syariah matters
Caring, responsive, detailed, provide clear guidance, always provide honest opinion, non-judgemental, will never fail to extend morale support when needed and most importantly knows when to crack a joke to make you calm down in her own way.
This is how I would describe Ms. Rafidah Wahid. I’m sure like everyone else going through the ordeal of having to give evidence, it’s natural to have all sorts of feeling … nervous, anxiety initially and panicking with loads of uncertainties.
Appointing a divorce lawyer is not as easy as I thought and I ended up with a bad experience with my first lawyer whom talks like a champion because of the years of experience. That’s when I decided to switch and appoint R.W. Law Practice. Ms. Rafidah didn’t overpromise during my first visit however, she always try to put herself in my shoe with full of empathy and explained the complete process with full confidence. She even suggested that we need to amend the case statement and explain why it’s key to winning the case. Every steps of the way including her strategies including Dua’ ( prayers ) to keep me calm and believe that we are on track and have done our best to succeed while leaving the rest to Allah s.w.t.
Not once I heard of her reassuring me by condemning or negative remarks about the opposition lawyer or it’s firm.
All I received after every meeting is positive vibes. She made me so comfortable to open up and ensure that I am clear before I leave the meeting. Unlike my previous experience,
Rafidah has a strong team whom are always fully updated on my case and always on top of it. Believe it or not, even my ex-partner rave about Ms. Rafidah’s courage and her immediate response with detailed explanation during the hearing to his families. With the grace of Allah s.w.t., I am blessed to have met Ms. Rafidah and for her to agree to take on my case.
A BIG Thank You to Ms. Rafidah and everyone at R.W. Law Practice including Shahirah Nassir, Nur Asyura and Nur Illya. I pray R.W. Law Practice all the success and many more years to come with the blessing from Allah s.w.t.
Rafidah and her team are very professional and well organized.
Before appointing Rafidah as my divorce lawyer, she took the time to explain the process to me in detail.
Following the appointment, Rafidah had shown great support to answer any adhoc questions I had, and to guide me through any actions needed at my end. This was all done while I was overseas.
Rafidah’s team is also of the same caliber, they followed up with me on a timely manner with any documents that needed action.
Even after closing my case, I have sought Rafidah’s inputs on side matters, and she was available to direct me to the correct personels.
Many thanks Rafidah and team for your great support
