Lawyers in Dubai will provide free advice to residents in financial trouble as part of a new initiative in the Year of Giving. Dubai Courts and 81 law firms will offer free legal consultations to residents who cannot afford a lawyer. Among those who would benefit would be business owners and residents going through indebtedness and relatives in family disputes. Dubai Courts has already begun the initiative and said 1,000 clients receiving free legal services that would cost about Dhs 3 million this year.
"Sanabel Al Khair demonstrates our commitment to effectively contribute to the humanitarian and philanthropic efforts in the UAE," said Taresh Al Mansouri, director general of Dubai Courts.
"It guarantees the rights, happiness and satisfaction of all citizens and residents in the UAE. We are driven by a clear vision for building a legal and judicial system where everyone is given their rights."
