"I would like to share with my experience with everyone who can use service of Ms. Ali office. I was in Guyana and my spouse in Ukraine was engaged in selling and renewal of real estate. To carry out these operations, she needed a power of attorney from me. I applied for help to the lawyer of Ms Ali. Since now a very difficult situation with COVID-19. I did everything on the phone. I turned to the secretary, I was listened to and she told me what and how it was necessary, all the nuances explained and the prices for services were told. Everything was arranged for me, everything was very high quality and professionally. I highly recommend, real professionals of their  business. God bless, thanks.

"Three years ago, when my mom had recently died, I needed a lawyer to explain the processes involved in probating her will. While researching lawyers online that handle probate matters in Guyana, I came across attorney Ms. Jamela Ali. I was impressed with her profile and decided to contact her in person to learn more about the Probate laws of Guyana. I received very favorable responses from Ms. Jamela Ali and her Legal Assistant Trudy Cummings clearly detailing the steps necessary in handling my matter. From this, I was confident in her legal expertise on this matter and decided to go with her team. Ms. Ali and Trudy gave me a thorough breakdown of the process and gave me realistic estimations as to the cost and the length of time involved for the entire Probate process. During the entire process I was advised and kept informed every step of the way especially by her assistant Ms. Trudy Cummings who always went above and beyond to answer any questions or concerns I may have. After the probate was completed, Ms Ali and Trudy also handled the sale of our property.  Like the above Probate process, I was also given estimates on the sale process, kept informed every step of the way and had all my concerns and questions answered.  The sale was completed.
Ms. Jamela Ali and Trudy Cummings are both hard working, enthusiastic, dedicated, reliable and very diligent in keeping all my matters with the utmost confidentiality. They are extremely knowledgeable professionals in their field. If you’re looking for competence, proficiency & professionalism with probates and legal real estate matters, I strongly advice and recommend that you contact Attorney at Law Ms. Jamela Ali and her Legal Assistant Mrs. Trudy Cummings.
Thank you Trudy and Ms. Jamela Ali for your hard work, dedication and the exceptional services that you have provided to me and continues to provide. Thank you!"

"It gives me great pleasure in writing my review. Attorney at Law, Ms. Jamela Ali’s name was highly recommended by a dear friend who resides in Georgetown, Guyana. I contacted the office and explained to her legal assistant about my real estate sale.
Within hours, I received the guidance that I needed to proceed with my matter. I can honestly say in a matter of approximately 3 months of gathering all my necessary paperwork to inherit a property in Guyana from my grandmother and her husband, both of whom died; my house is now sold.
I’m recommending to anyone, if you’re looking for competence, proficiency & professionalism with legal real estate matters, Contact this super duo “Attorney at Law’’ Ms. Jamela Ali’s and Legal Assistant Mrs. Trudy Cummings."

"Having inherited shares in Guyana, I needed to approach a firm of lawyers who could act on my behalf in selling the portfolio.Through a Google search I contacted Ms Jamela Ali and her initial reply to my request was dealt with promptly.
Ms Ali and her assistant, Trudy Cummings were able to guide me through the complexities of selling shares from a UK estate.
They were able to get probate resealed in Guyana and act as my Power of Attorney. Notice of resealing was advertised in the Official Gazette and once approved the sale of the shares went through.
All my queries were dealt with promptly, even on one occasion at 5 in the morning!
I have no hesitation in recommending Jamela A Ali, Attorney at law, and Trudy Cummings as a team, to anyone living outside Guyana needing legal advice."

"I reside in the UK and my mother and I needed the services of a Guyanese lawyer to probate my grandfather's will. He died over 20 years ago so we were expecting this to be extremely difficult. I found Jamela's details online and contacted her by email. I got an immediate response and she set out clearly the services she could provide.
From this reply I felt confident that we had found the right person and now just a few months later the probate has been completed satisfactorily. Throughout the process we were kept fully informed and all emails were responded to promptly, usually on the same day. I cannot recommend Jamela and her staff highly enough and would not hesitate to to use her services again for any other legal matters."

I am a Professional Guyanese American living in New York. For the first time, after living in the US for almost 30 years, I had the need for a ‘Guyanese lawyer’. After googling those same words, I found Ms. Jamela Ali. I contacted her and she got back to me right away. Within a few minutes she analyzed the case and predicted the results.
It has now been a few months since she has taken my case and I am very pleased to say that Ms. Ali has been extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring, holding her ground while the other side bent! She is not only a brilliant lawyer, knowing the law inside and out but well respected by her peers and the judges.
She is relentless in defending her clients. She is confident and reassures her clients along the way. I was very lucky to find her through a simple search on the internet and would highly recommend her to other American Guyanese who are unfamiliar with the law in Guyana. Because of her work she did, I was able to get double what the other side wanted to give me. She is a rare find!

Ms. Ali and her staff were instrumental in guiding my wife and I through an independent foreign adoption of a Guyanese orphaned sibling set. As neither my wife nor I are employed in the legal arena nor are knowledgeable about law in general and especially Guyanese adoption law in particular, we relied heavily on Ms. Ali and her team to aid us in our attempt to adopt these special orphaned children who we fell in love with and so very much wished to parent.  My wife and I cannot say enough words of praise about Ms. Ali and her team. They were thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and personal. They clearly mapped out the process and executed their responsibilities swiftly and efficiently dotting all “Is” and crossing all “Ts”. Not one iota was neglected. Ms. Ali personally responded to each and every one of our inquiries in a prompt manner. This level of service is rarely duplicated in any industry! Though we contracted business so far away geographically from Guyana, it honestly felt like we were living in Georgetown (Ms. Ali’s office headquarters) as all matters were addressed so swiftly. My wife and I would personally recommend Ms. Ali and her team’s legal services to anyone. We fully intend to tout her and her staff’s praises to all interested parties we come across.  Thanks to Ms. Ali and staff, we have a new daughter and son who are a definite treasure!

I only recently read your masterful account of the common law judge's duty to give reasons for their judgments.

Our two countries (I am in Malaysia) draw our laws and legal systems from the common law. There are also commonalities in our colonial history. Your article helped me formulate my own thoughts on the subject. UK Menon from Malaysia. April 19, 2021 - ukmenon@espact.com.my

"I have read ur article "Duty to give reason". U have done good job mam. It is very helpfull for me as a law student for the study purpose .  "Thanks for the excellent article above" and keep it up. Afra Fathima from Sri Lanka. November 28, 2016.

… words do not adequately express the sentiment I felt when considering the wisdom you displayed in your “DUTY TO GIVE REASONS - THE WAY FORWARD” It is a masterpiece and should be read by every lawmaker. I will do my best to pass on links to your website and hopefully others with more influence than me will run with your recommendations.
 
Next time you sit down to write another article please remember that you are encouraged, you have been blessed with a brilliant mind and to whom much is given much is expected
