Well known personalities in Canada  and Bangladesh have made following comments about Mr. Rahman:


“I always found him well-prepared, courteous, and professional. His oral submissions were excellent. Overall, I found his representation of his clients to have been far superior to that of many duly qualified lawyers.

Most significantly, I can honestly state that I never heard a single negative comment passed against him by a  former client-something quite noteworthy, in that , in my experience, refugee claimants have a tendency to place the blame on former counsel when their claims are refused.

As for Mr. Rahman’s personal qualities, I have always found him to be honest, intelligent, well-read, determined, pragmatic and empathic.”

“He impressed me as an extremely articulate, immaculate and well organized man…  I have continued to be to be impressed  by his quickness of mind, his willingness to speak and coherent arguments during oral submissions, his ability to inspire the trust  of his clients, and his success at developing a successful legal strategy”

“Having a good counsel is important in every hearing because the claimant feels comfortable and a good counsel is able to prepare the claimant for a focused hearing. He or she is also able t provide relevant documentary evidence , and make submissions at the conclusion of the hearing that emphasize the key aspects of the case, as well as cite the pertinent case law.

I found that you always did your job with diligence and fairness, and made the claimants feel comfortable. You were also honest and did not give them false hopes, and you assisted them in presenting their cases forthrightly.”

Mohammed Azhar Ali Khan (Order of Ontario).
Former member of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada

“It was during my participation in the Bangladesh Television’s Programme “Ain Adalat” I had come to know Mr. Rezaur Rahman intimately. It was a programme too attractive to be ignored by even the sharp critics and consequently it continued for five years having top rating even over the entertainment oriented programmes.

Rahman at that time was relatively young in age, but his understanding of legal matters which he had to deal with in his programme was that of a mature legal practitioner. During the period of telecasting of the programme many incidents, persons and legal matters were presented before the viewers with professional skill, touch of rare sense of humanism and forcefulness.

Outside the programme I found him a promising lawyer, a Human Rights Activist and a fine person who has every quality that makes a man worth remembering with respect and liking beyond the grey shade of marching time.”

“ This is to certify that Mr. Rezaur Rahman has helped me win admission for my son to Canada. My application to sponsor my son was denied by Immigration Canada in Nairobi, Kenya and I did not know where to go or what to do.

Mr. Rezaur Rahman is a very kind, understanding , very intelligent and very professional  person and knowledgeable of the  Canadian immigration system. He is very brief and to the point, and very effective in doing his job. He is excellent communicator with excellent and deep understanding of my case. If Mr. Rezaur Rahman was not accessible to me in both fee and time, I could not have won my son’s case. I am very happy and grateful with your professional help”
