Rihab

Rihab Hamade is a wonderful attorney. She is not only extremely intelligent and professional but she's an excellent communicator. Unlike most attorneys she was always willing to answer my calls when she was available, respond to my emails as well as call me back in a timely manner. She is an excellent attorney and I'd highly recommend.

If one really wishes to know how justice is administered in a country, one does not question the policemen, the lawyers, the judges, or the protected members of the middle class.
