Thank you for your trust

This achievement warms our hearts and reaffirms our commitment to providing accessible legal guidance to those in need. The majority of these queries have been processed anonymously via our WhatsApp number +923048734899, while a smaller amount was received and resolved via our email aemen@joshandmak.com. All query threads are deleted after consultation in line with our data privacy policy.

We also want to highlight in this message that Free legal advice is only available online/electronically (via email and WhatsApp). We do not, as a matter of policy entertain requests for office visits for free legal advice.

It brings us immense joy to witness the growing number of people who turn to us daily seeking help. What makes our work truly fulfilling is our ability to empower you, the Pakistani public in Pakistan and Abroad, with the knowledge and insights necessary to make informed decisions and rectify any past choices based on our legal counsel.

Our journey has not only been one of service but also of continuous learning. We believe in the power of sharing knowledge and observations, which we do anonymously through Nadav’s List. This platform allows us to contribute to the wider legal community and further refine our expertise.

For all those who reach out to us for assistance, please know that we are here for you. We take pride in our commitment to explaining complex legal matters, offering guidance, and providing honest legal advice. Rest assured, this principle has always been and will always remain at the core of Josh and Mak International.

A message for Pakistani lawyers 

We have observed a growing trend among legal professionals who approach us seeking ‘case laws’ and ‘specimens’ of pleadings. We find it necessary to address this issue due to several compelling reasons.

First and foremost, it is expected that individuals identifying themselves as lawyers should have access to comprehensive legal resources, including public libraries and online platforms like Pakistan Law Site. In today’s digital age, even lawyers in remote areas with limited financial resources can obtain affordable subscriptions and have access to the internet and data services. It raises concerns when legal professionals fail to utilize these readily available resources, as it reflects a lack of professionalism and a suboptimal approach to safeguarding client interests.

Requesting us to provide cases and pleadings may indicate a concerning copy-and-paste mentality that has become prevalent among some members of the legal community in Pakistan. This approach, devoid of originality, has unfortunately contributed to a proliferation of failed and frivolous litigation cases, ultimately compromising the interests of clients. We strongly believe that this practice should be discouraged in favor of nurturing a new generation of lawyers who are capable of independent legal analysis and advocacy.Also sharing any such documents can undermine our duty of client confidentiality and privacy.

Furthermore, we have encountered requests from lawyers seeking complete copies of our articles to be sent to them. While we openly welcome lawyers to peruse the information available on our website, it is important to clarify that our website materials are intended for the general public. Consequently, we are not comfortable fulfilling requests for entire PDFs of our website content in response to whimsical demands from fellow legal professionals.

In conclusion, we advocate for a professional and responsible approach within the legal community, emphasizing the importance of self-reliance in legal research, originality in drafting, and respectful engagement with publicly available legal resources.As our time is precious and devoted to our clients and helping deserving members of  the general public, in the future we will avoid even answering such requests. This is also true for req

Anyways, a big thank you to the Pakistani Public for entrusting us with your legal concerns. Together, we look forward to many more milestones and the opportunity to continue serving you with dedication and integrity.

Warm regards,

Barrister Aemen Zulfikar Maluka
