A professional legal firm in the UAE can serve as a home of advocacy for the marginalized and exploited. The lawyers in Dubai are on par with world-renowned ones, as this city nestles in itself a lot of local & international law firms. These lawyers have expertise in multiple areas such as property, construction sector, business, immigration, family matters and criminology.
As per the UAE’s law, people who are accused are provided an attorney by the government. Additionally, those convicted persons who can’t afford to engage a lawyer can also ask the government to provide them an attorney.
