"Their attention to detail was the difference between being convicted or not"

I highly recommend Mr Shukoor from Sydney Criminal Lawyers. I had been charged with Low Range PCA and Trespassing, and I had previously been given a section 10 several years ago for a different incident.

Despite already having a second chance, Mr Shukoor’s strong knowledge of the system allowed him to present my case in the best possible light, and as a result I received two further Section 10’s and remained conviction free, which was an outstanding result.

His minor attention to details could be the difference between being convicted or not.

Thanks again.

"I can now rest easy knowing that my charge has been dismissed"

Being in a stressful position, it was hard to find a firm that I could trust with my matter. I was fortunate enough to find SCL. And in particular, lucky to have Wali on my side. He’s an absolute professional and drilled in on all the key issues in my case. After many months of stress & anxiety, I can now rest easy knowing that my charge (which was a relatively serious one) has been dismissed. Thanks Wali!
