Testimonials

Andrew Oh
ABCO International Co., Ltd.
Seoul, South Korea

We are a Korean firm based in Seoul. With my personal on hand experience, I would like to recommend Motei for any commercial litigation or dispute in UAE. They, including were very thorough, sincere and trustworthy to engage a legal case in UAE. Due to Islamic Law society, people in Western World can face a serious hurdle or obstacle taking a legal case there. However, UAE Law system is fair and just as long as backed up by proper legal advice and action in due course. We pursued a bad debt collection case against UAE local company after we engaged Motei. We won the case and Motei collected not only Principal amount of bad debt but also judicially applicable interest. Bravo Motei. Thanks millions to Mr. Motei and Mr. Mena Victor!

Dubai, UAE

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.

After purchasing a property off plan in Dubai during 2005, I paid stage payments with no construction work having begun onsite by the 2017 completion date stated. After 10 years of a rollercoaster litigation ride, I contacted Motei with very little hope. Ashraf’s pragmatic overview of my case & his resolute belief that he could succeed where others had tried & failed was the “positive reinforcement” I had been waiting for. The team worked tirelessly on resolving my case. Ashraf ‘s astute perceptiveness & patience successfully led to a positive conclusion in October 2017 for which I will be eternally grateful. Motei & Associates corporate ethics, unwavering professionalism & honesty puts them top of my list for legal representation globally!
