CONSULAR SECTION AMERICAN EMBASSY AMMAN, JORDAN
LIST OF ATTORNEYS
(As of May 2006)
How to use this list: For your convenience, lawyers have been listed under three
general headings: “family law,” “criminal defense.” and “general civil and commercial
practice.” While lawyers in Jordan as a general rule do not specialize in particular areas of law, many attorneys in general practice are not equipped to handle family law or criminal defense matters. Thus, our list specifically notes lawyers who do work in these areas. Keep in mind that lawyers listed as family or criminal law “specialists” are usually ready to handle civil and commercial matters as well. Further, many of the lawyers listed under the heading “general civil and commercial practice” are willing to help with family or criminal matters, often by hiring a specialist on the client’s behalf, and acting as a go-between. In some cases this may be helpful, as many lawyers handling family and criminal matters do not speak English. Finally, the lawyers on this list vary considerably in the how much they charge clients for their services. Most will quote a flat rate to handle the entire case from start to finish, though some charge by the hour. It is a good idea to contact several lawyers about your case before choosing one. This will allow you to compare the attorneys’ various styles and personalities, their proposed strategies for your case, and their fees.
