Dubai Lawyers Free Consultation and Free Legal Advice 31

In coordination with prominent Dubai lawyers, the Courts is offering free electronic legal consultancy to the public under a new initiative called ‘Shoor’, which is one of three electronic services made available in partnership with law firms.

“The ‘Shoor’ (meaning ‘Consult’) initiative is aimed at giving the public legal advice on issues related to civic, real estate, financial, labour or personal affairs and facilitate judicial transactions for them. The initiative is also aimed at raising legal awareness and improving trust between the Courts and the community,” said Dubai Courts’ Director General Dr Saeed bin Hazeem while launching the three services.

46 lawyers volunteered to answer public queries during the initiative’s experimental phase and offered about 600 free consultancy hours, he said.

Dr Bin Hazeem stressed the importance of the partnership between the Courts and legal firms to help ensuring justice for all and enabling the public to know their rights and obligations under the country’s laws.

‘Al Salfa’

Dubai Courts’ ‘Al Salfa’ service enables clients to register their cases electronically, avoiding for them the need to physically approach the Courts. ‘Al Salfa’ is the first of its kind in the Middle East. Applicants can upload and send all needed documents electronically, pay fees, get cases registered, and get first hearing date through the Internet.

“After submitting case documents electronically, the concerned department will check them and communicate with the applicant electronically and inform if other documents are needed. After ensuring that all documents are complete, the applicant will be notified with the required fees. The applicant will be notified with the case number and first hearing date immediately after paying the registration fees electronically. The applicant does not need to approach the Courts before the first hearing of the case,” explained Dr bin Hazeem.

“‘Al Salfa’ (which means the ‘story’ or the ‘issue’) refers to the person who used to play a judicial role in the UAE’s local community in the early days,” he noted.

This service was introduced on an experimental phase last February and was made optional for a number of legal firms. Following the success of the experimental phase during which about 3,000 cases were registered electronically, this service will now be made available and mandatory for all law firms.

  • Krisandra Malana Robles

    Dear Sir/Madam.

    Happy New Year, first of all. Hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday.

    I would like to get your insight or advice on how should I do for my employer.

    I have joined him May 15, 2019 under his Fujairah Creative City Free Zone company as an Operations Manager/Executive Assistant (but I am mainly hired for his Dubai Mainland Company which is newly opened as well) – though I am now handling both. We have a physical office situated at Iris Bay tower at Business Bay, Dubai – though haven’t sat there since I started with him. I work at home or go to his home or do work for him either online or visit places tasked to me.

    Since October 2019, my salary has not been credited to my account and he has promised me and agreed (I have emails, sms, and WhatsApp convos that can prove all) that he will provide me tomorrow or a specified date – which never happened.

    The most heartbreaking part is he knew from the beginning that I will be going home for Christmas and New Year and he agreed upon our email agreement that he will book my ticket and provide me my pending salaries – which he never did (knowing all my bags were pack and ready to leave once the ticket has been issued and fees given). He now wants us to mutually agree to have a written contract wherein he will pay me everything within 45 days – and then cancel my visa – but how about the other damages – he did not even issued my medical insurance which we agreed and signed.

    I have my car loan here and ENBD has been calling me non stop now.

    I don’t have incoming funds, still looking for a job.

    I have contacted the consultant that his company is under to guide me – and even visited the Free Zone and sent an email. However, they can only assist me legally for such fees wherein I would not know where to collect.

    Please help me – I have been in Dubai, United Arab Emirates since November 2011 and this is the first time this has happened to me. I am lost. Trying not to be depressed.

    Please help me. I dont know what to do – no incoming funds.

    Thank you and hope to hear from you at the soonest.

  • Mohammad Faizan Wasim

    Dear Sir,

    I came back from my vacation on March 11th, and on March 18th I got termination letter from our company without the advise of my last working day. I sent emails to my hr department to have a confirmation when will be my last working day but got no feedback. I signed my termination letter on May 3 2020 and submitted to them ,it was a day after that when my HR approached me why I am still coming in the office when my last day is April 30th which was not informed to me in advance, by then they wiped out my in and out in our biometrics and suddenly blocked my company email.

    Again I sent a letter to my hr from my personal email so I would have a firm and written advise of when is my last working day and also my settlement but only they replied me that my last day is April 30 2020.

    I again sent an email regarding my settlement but no reply receive from my HR department.

    Being so confused about my rights as an employee from this company for 6 years and 7 months, I file an inquiry and complaint to the labor and got an advise that I should have a 1 month notice period from the time I signed my letter , they also told me the things regarding my settlement which includes my gratuity, my April salary, 1 month notice period pay and breach of contract pay (equivalent to my 1 month salary) and my return ticket

    Having an advised for my rights, I again sent an email to my HR mentioning about all these settlements, My assistant hr finally call me and asked me to drop by to office on May 28, but when I came to see my settlement they are only giving me my total gratuity, the pending April salary, leave salary and return ticket and immediately asked me to sign my settlement letter . I refused to sign and told them that the calculation is not right , they answered me that they will not pay more than that.

    I am planning to file a case in the court for these things.

    Please advise me as I feel confused with all the things happening .

    Is it valid that my last working day is as per their late advised when I only signed my termination letter on May 3 2020?

    The calculation advised by the legal adviser from labor is firm and I believe is correct, please re -confirm.

    I would appreciate a lot for your soonest feedback. Thank you

    After completing my probation period with the company, I terminated my contract in a legal way. I got my own trade licence now but my visa application has been on pending for a while now. I contacted immigration department and I was told my former employer has placed an absconding complain on my file which makes it difficult for them to process my visa. I contacted my former employee but they told me to pay them the sum of 3500aed without any good reason. I want you to look into this matter and let me know how I can solve this issue as soon as possible. Thanks in advance for your help

    1. I am fighting a case in supreme court of india , i am facing lot of issues like food poisoning/Food adulteration , Pressurized situation around me to give up the case
    2. I visited Dubai to enjoy trip As well as to avoid Food adulteration/poisoning for sometime and try my supreme court case as soon as i land in india
    3. But from day 1 i faced food adulteration ,inhumane treatment, humiliation – by scratching, spitting to provoke me , Lot of disrespectful behavior, threatning visually, and provocation from hotel staff
    4. i faced food adulteration wherever i go in dubai , only buffet can reduce impacts
    5 Adavanced scientific methods like Mind reading are used in my case to torture me

    6 . No cooperation from police so i contacted a lawyer intially he made me very confident advised me to go hospital rashid but they denied for blood test , i went for other hospital but doctor categorically said their test wont show up any food adulteration impacts in test so i didnt show interest

    7. Lawyer said no need to fight for test , he said his team will take up the case , Unfortunately there was influence on the lawyer side too later when i visited his office he asked me for a cofee that made me drowsy – that didnt went well with me

    8. Still i tried to proceed with him considering the inhumane/barbaric situation around me to quickly find a way to get out this situation , I paid lot of money to him but he is ot pushing for any urgent hearing , suppressing the case facts , delaying in filing the case – All this pushed me to look for a better trustworthy lawyer to fight a case in dubai

    What i need ?

    Tell me how can i prove the food adulteration/poisoning/humiliation is happening around me to you , then obviously i hope you know what to do
    Yes i want the freedom immediately any form of harassments should not happen to me when i am in UAE

    Presently we are confronting a ton of issues like; rental dispute cases, civil cases and kids’ school expenses; In 24 years we rarely went to Pakistan even 4-5 times despite the fact that we don’t have anybody (relatives, family) in Pakistan and furthermore our exit is blocked, hence we can’t go. we spent quite a number of days without a rooftop on our head and confronted a great deal of challenges. Countless times I have attempted to get out from my tough time yet couldn’t discover any way out, in truth the issue is expanding day by day.” we are depressed of our present situation, we don’t even think of going to the doctor if one of us is feeling sick because we simply are not able to afford it. And furthermore we don’t have insurance, we need to pay our kids’ school fees to finish their education, home lease cases and different issues Presently, we have different issues to cope against as well I want to settle my problems please someone help me to find a way.

    Yours faithfully
