Although serious crime is his special interest, he represents clients in all jurisdictions, and in a range of criminal and traffic cases.

He also has an interest in police misconduct including illegal searches and improperly obtained evidence, and often fights to have charges dropped where police have acted outside the law.

Osman has represented clients in a number of serious and well publicised cases including terrorism charges, murder cases, large commercial drug supplies, firearms offences, serious assaults and armed robberies.

He was recently successful in having commercial drug supply charges in respect of the “Padstow to Liverpool alleged drug ring” dropped, which made news headlines.

Osman leaves no stone unturned when it comes to case preparation, and is dedicated to providing clients with practical advice and effective representation, ensuring each and every client receives the best possible outcome in the circumstances.

He ensures that clients are kept well informed throughout the court process, and is highly receptive to client needs.

Outside of law, Osman particularly enjoys travelling, having spent a great deal of time travelling a number of regions of the world, with a particular fascination in experiencing different cultures.

He served over two years with Australian Army Reserves as an Officer (Lieutenant) in training.

He was also employed as a security manager for almost 8 years, during which he was responsible for some of the biggest venues and night clubs in the state.

Osman has a keen interest in fitness and training, particularly in the art of Muay Thai (Thai Boxing), having competed in Thailand in 2010, 2013 and 2016.

He also has a passion for the ocean and its conservation, being a globally certified rescue diver and freediver.

Recent Testimonials for Osman
"5 stars"

My case is undertaken by Osman Samin, who is a really nice guy to deal with my case. From the beginning (the first consultation) to the end (at the court sentencing), he made strong contribution and enough efforts. At the first consultation, he was quite patient and listened to my story carefully. During the case preparation, he told me how to prepare for it. At the court sentencing, he made strong arguments for me in order to get a good result.

I recommend this guy also for another reason: after he listens to your story, he knows which part can be useful for the case preparation and which ones are not. Sometimes when you have not told him about what you are going to say, he already knows it.

Also, the front desk is warm and kind-hearted.

5 stars.

"If I ever need a lawyer again, Sydney Criminal Lawyers will be the first firm I call"

In the past my experience with lawyers had made me frustrated. Osman Samin has changed my perspective of them, he is the sharpest lawyer I have used, he put in some solid research for my case and kept me up to date the whole time and most importantly he was on my side and he seemed passionate to help me.

If I ever need a lawyer again, Osman will be the first person I call.

"A truly excellent result in a very difficult situation"

A truly excellent result in a very difficult situation, stalking/intimidation charges were completely dropped by the magistrate, thank you very much Osman Samin.

And thank you Steven Patrick for your reassurance in explaining aspects of the law to us, as we were feeling very dismayed and overwhelmed initially.

The set fee structure is also very helpful.

An excellent firm.
