Bhavtik Vallabhjee

I was referred to Just Wills (UAE) by the biggest personal financial advisory firm in the UAE and one of the most prominent regional banks in the UAE. I can now see why! I have found Mohammed Marria to be extremely conversant with the local Sharia Laws, the process & formalities involved in drawing-up expediting a Will in the UAE. Not to mention Just Wills service that is second to none. This gave me the peace of mind that as an expat, in the event of my untimely death, I know my financial affairs would be taken care of my family safeguarded.

Thank you Mohammad & Just Wills.

“I would highly recommend Mohammad's expert advice on Estate planning. All to often we over look this vital area especially those persons living in the U.A.E. It's very important to have all these documents in place and up to date at all times and I can personally recommend Mohammad and his company for a complete professional package.
