Legal Assistance

Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.

When in Jordan, please note that U.S. citizens are subject to Jordanian jurisdiction and to applicable Jordanian laws and regulations.  Travelers to Jordan are actively encouraged to familiarize themselves with applicable laws, regulations, customs and norms.  The Jordanian legal system is different from the legal system in the United States and may be unfamiliar to U.S. citizens in Jordan.  The Embassy strongly recommends that persons with legal questions or difficulties consult a Jordanian attorney.

View information on legal assistance in the United States.

The Embassy maintains a list of local attorneys who are familiar with Jordanian law. 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. The U.S. Embassy assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or reputation of the persons whose names appear on the list.
