3.      Opinion regarding legal issues like

 Client need legal representation to ensure that the judge get a clear picture of the background of the case. Function of a lawyer is to reduce the future punishment, not to negate punishment entirely. This is my stance.

b)                 Do cases win due to its facts or indulgence of a lawyer
            Most of the criminal cases are won due to technical aspects which were not provided to the high expectation of justice.  30% of the litigation cases are won due to indulgence of the lawyer. 70% of them are actually due to its facts factor.

4.      Moments of joy when winning a case due to hardwork.

Determination, hard work and long term learning. I do not see myself doing any other thing as a career and thus I put tremendous effort to be good in my job while balancing my time for family.

10. What goals have you set for yourself?
      To settle at least 5 files a day, to get at least 15 new files a month

     How are you planning to achieve them?
By  doing marketing through networking of government services (Land Office, JPN and other agency), bankers and property agents. I also take advantage of modern wonders such as the Internet to expand my domain.

11. What was the most useful criticism you ever received, and whom was it from?
The most useful criticism is from a friend who criticised me for not doing enough time for marketing.

14. Why do you want to be a lawyer?
I want to be a lawyer to help the more people who are in need of legal advice/service  especially to ease the process of acquiring properties. In fact, it has been my dream to directly help people and give satisfying service in any way that I can.

15. Which of your practice areas interest you and why?
Real estate and probate. The former due to its civil importance and future value. It is conventional wisdom that real estate, as a valuable resource and asset, has tremendous and persistent market value and is here to stay. Real estate should therefore be (if it hasn’t been) one of the forefronts necessities among the population and good for business. The latter, specifically the fara’id, is less known, let alone mastered by average Muslims. Thus, I would step in to assist any of those that need advice and processing in this particular matter.
