Lawyer in Jordan


Lawyer in Jordan

The legal profession is a mission that the lawyer performs with all honesty and sincerity for the benefit of his client, and he is entrusted to give him legal advice in all honesty, away from any personal interest of the lawyer.

Lawyers in Jordan are competent and knowledgeable, as the lawyer undergoes intensive training after studying law for two years.

The lawyers at Arida Law Firm are practicing lawyers, and our mission is to start with the lawyer from the training stage until he works within the team of specialized lawyers.

In general, once a lawyer in Jordan obtains a license to practice the profession, he has the right to speak before all courts in Jordan, except for some restrictions, such as having to practice for 5 years to enable him to appear before administrative courts. Training is also necessary to practice law before Sharia courts, and there are restrictions for lawyers practicing before ecclesiastical courts as well.
