In today’s complex legal landscape, finding a lawyer who not only possesses exceptional legal acumen but also aligns with your cultural and religious values can be a challenging endeavor. However, my experience with Ms Rafidah, a distinguished Muslim Syariah lawyer, has been nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment I engaged her services, I was impressed by their unwavering commitment to upholding the principles of Islamic law while navigating the intricacies of modern legal systems. Their depth of knowledge in both conventional law and Syariah law provided me with a sense of assurance and confidence throughout. One of the most striking aspects of R.W. Law practice is their dedication to fostering a supportive and empathetic client-lawyer relationship. They took the time to thoroughly understand my unique circumstances, offering compassionate guidance and tailored solutions every step of the way. Moreover, Ms Rafidah professionalism and attention to detail were evident in every aspect of their work. Whether it was drafting legal documents, representing me in court, or negotiating on my behalf, they exhibited a level of proficiency and diligence that surpassed my expectations. Their strategic approach to problem-solving and their unwavering advocacy for my rights left an indelible impression on me. Beyond their legal expertise, Ms Rafidah exemplifies the values of integrity, ethics, and social responsibility that are integral to the practice of law. They consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for justice and fairness, striving to uphold the highest standards of ethical conduct in all their interactions, Ms Rafidah is not just a competent legal practitioner but a beacon of excellence in the field of Muslim Syariah law. Their unwavering dedication to their clients, coupled with their profound understanding of both legal principles and Islamic teachings, sets them apart as a true asset to the legal profession. I wholeheartedly recommend Ms Rafidah to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation rooted in Islamic values.

Nurazlina,

My most sincere thank you to Miss Shahirah, for taking the time out of her busy schedule and representing my divorce case. I was not sure at first about my chances of winning my case, even with the evidence I had with me but fortunately with her hard work, this has come true.

She has been very informative, knowledgeable, professional and forward thinking. She has always sought to provide and share with me the best information or advice and my next cause of actions whenever I’m not sure of what to do. Not forgetting her 2 paralegals on my case, Asyura and Ameera, have been awesome too in helping out to give some advice as well during the case.

After one and half years with this stressful case, and also dealing with the stress at home for 4 years already, it finally came to an end.

Alhamdulillah, I was overwhelmed when I heard the outcome of the court proceedings. Being a father who wants to the best for the kids and wrongly accused for something I did not do, getting the joint custody plus the care and control, I felt I have won my life back despite the circumstances of the other party getting more in terms of payment. Getting the kids means a lot to me after the 4 years of suffering of mental torture and exhaustion to the kids and to me as well.

With that, I would to express my heartfelt gratitude to Miss Shahirah and her team, for helping me through this tough time and aiding a new beginning of my life. Thank you once again for the legal advice, time and efforts. And thank you RW LAW.

smOOdy,

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.

Joanne Chia,

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.
