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.

Sherry,

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

LK,

Ms Rafidah Wahid was a beacon of hope to me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was she able to defend me from an unjust accusation, her calm and empathetic demeanour offered emotional support to myself and those I care about most. I am eternally grateful for her service and I hereby recommend Ms Rafidah without reservation.

Ms Rafidah and her Assoc Ms Shahirah were true professionals in handling my divorce. Their efficiency swept me off my feet! The divorce process itself was extremely overwhelming and emotional, but having the best lawyers in my corner gave me the confidence that I would get everything I deserved and needed to move on with my life.

I cannot thank her enough for her excellent service. Her legal expertise and professionalism went above and beyond my expectations throughout the course of my case. She will text and check on me; ‘tanya khabar’ about me and my kids. She even took the effort to reply to my texts on her birthday, telling me to calm down and explaining to me step by step on what’s best to do/not to do. How thoughtful of her! Mashaa Allah. May Allah reward her kindness. Extremely grateful for all of her efforts, I should have done it sooner and save myself from all the stress and sleepless nights.

Well, I cannot deny that my only regret is that RW LAW was my second choice.

I was referred by a close friend who highly recommended Ms Rafidah. I read about RW LAW. I watched ‘Hak Siapa’ at Suria. I knew and had the strong feeling that she was the right divorce lawyer for me. After my first meeting with her, I felt extremely confident in my decision to engage her service.

Ms Rafidah is a knowledgeable and approachable. After listening to my case she knew exactly what needed to be done to bring the matter of my divorce to a closure. She explained what her plan of action was and what was needed to execute it.

Some lawyers are good in fighting for my benefits completely while some seemed a bit soft sided. I needed a balanced legal representative and Ms Rafidah is the most suitable for me. Yes, I needed to win the case but not totally all out, as my kids will suffer. Ms Rafidah can see the balance I needed and advised me clearly on the pros and cons. She replies promptly and patiently to all my questions. She executes prompt follow ups too and updates.

She has that motherly touch in her too. She never fail to remind me to make lots of du’as and not forgetting Tahajjud prayers too. She is just brilliant! Alhamdulillah.

For those of you who are still contemplating, look no wonder. I can assure you, NO REGRETS. I pray that may your business prosper and may ALLAH reward you and your team abundantly. In Shaa Allah. Once again, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU MS RAFIDAH AND TEAM!

Sincerely,
Nadia Jaaffar

Nadia Jaaffar,

Alhamduilllah. All praises to Allah. Thumbs up RW Law Practice and the team. The team that worked tirelessly to ensure that my case that was led by Ms Rafidah Wahid have came to a settlement which are in favor of my side. After a rough and rocky 2 years and 3 months, the hard work, efforts, patience and the quick thinking of Ms Rafidah’s team paid off. She was knowledgeable, honest and drive for results towards her client. A very dedicated team that instill trust to the client.
I was recommended to RW LAW by a long-time ex classmate for my divorce case. During my appointment with Ms Rafidah, she outlines all the details and the procedure of this divorce case. There are also timelines and lastly the price. It was a very affordable and payment will only be made once the team have sent me the invoice via emails. From the moment I chose RW LAW, I have great confidence in engaging her as my legal advice. She helped me even after her working hours patiently replying my texts and emails to her. Not only that, her appearance in most of the episodes for both seasons of “Hak Siapa” which are shown on Suria are well equipped with her positive advices to the community regarding the Syariah law so to give the viewers a better understanding.
Not only she handles my divorce case, but also a PPO order that was given to me. The PPO that was given to me left me baffled and I knew that I was not in the wrong. I engaged Ms Rafidah for my PPO case and she was able to pull it off with the PPO dismissed by the FJC. I felt grateful and thankful to have a legal counsel that really stood up for her client. Her never give up attitude for her client is out of this world.
Her team which consist of Ms Shahirah, Ms Ameerah (then) and Ms Asyura (present) are very helpful and approachable. When Ms Rafidah is unable to meet me, Ms Shahirah will step up and will do all the necessary stuffs for my case. We will also be communicating through WhatsApp and emails. Shahirah will render her support and giving me advices regarding my case. There are occasions whereby I asked the team for help on producing legal letters for both of my kids’ school matters. And within 24 hours, the letter will be sent to me via email. Both paralegals past and present did a great job and willing to help me. That’s how fast and effective the team works.
Overall, RW LAW was a very wise and good choice for me as Ms Rafidah took both my cases seriously and assisted me throughout till the end. And due to her intelligence, her will to fight the case and her positive attitude, justice prevailed. I got the justice for my 2 kids and the matrimonial asset (house). I was given care and control for the kids and the matrimonial asset was transferred to me. Those verdict means a lot to me and if it’s not due to Ms Rafidah’s effort, I will not know the fate of my case. The best legal counsel that I have engaged, and they really drive for results. To those out there that needs a lawyer for any Syariah advises or other personal legal matters, RW LAW is the team to engage. Thank you RW LAW for the absolute tip top services. I pray that you and the team will be blessed always by Allah and may Allah ease the team in any circumstances. Hope to see RW LAW expand and more great success to come.
Regards,
Fairuz Sanib.
