5 star rating in black with white outline
Motei has been working tirelessly with us on a real estate case since 2010. We have finally obtained a court verdict in our favor when most claimed that one could not win against big developers. This is in thanks to Mr. Ashraf and his team, who continued to fight for our case and to constantly seek new avenues to protect and prove our legal rights. Moreover, both Mr. Ashraf and his lawyers were always available and at the ready, whether to answer questions, listen to our concerns, or to explain procedures and timelines. This kind of relationship is priceless and was present with everyone at the firm. We would highly recommend Motei and Associates and look forward to working with them in the future should the need arise.

I needed to recoup a large amount of money I invested in an off-plan apartment in a development in RAK. The builders were a few years late in delivering the apartment which prompted me to look for my money back. I spoke to many law firms in Dubai. A positive result was far from a foregone conclusion, but Ashraf and his team were very thorough in their work, and they kept me informed and updated throughout the three-year process. We recently received a full refund plus penalties, and I have no doubt that this was due to the diligence of Ashraf and his team. I know of other investors in the same project who have used other firms who have had negative or less favourable results. Following my experience, I highly recommend Motei and associates.

We employed the services of Motei for over two years. While dealings with the law and legal firms, is never uncomplicated for outsiders, during this period we have forged a relationship that has transcended the norm. Ashraf and his team have smoothed the way forward and given every impression that winning the cases, we have been involved with, was personal to them, not simply business. In legal terms, they have gone into battle with us and their guidance, advice and leadership has proven invaluable as we have traversed the dizzying myriad of avenues that is the law and the courts system. If the situation arises, I would have no hesitation in using Motei and Associates and Associates again in the future.
