"This is a company with Honesty & Integrity"

This is a company with Honesty & Integrity, traits seldom found these days. I went to Sydney Criminal Lawyers for a second opinion and rather than convince us to change lawyers, Ted Neaves reassured us we were on the right track with our current firm & still gave us advise and was extremely helpful. I found him to be very Professional, knowledgeable, caring and extremely easy to talk to. I would have no hesitation in recommending him and Sydney Criminal Lawyers to prospective clients.
