The right team behind you
Our firm is focused on results and client satisfaction, and our team of dedicated lawyers and support staff will ensure you receive the highest quality legal representation and are fully informed throughout the court process.
Specialist lawyer guarantee
We guarantee that our clients will be represented by specialist criminal lawyers with substantial criminal defence experience, not by ‘general practitioners’ or solicitors who spread themselves across a number of fields of law.
Our team is spearheaded by ‘Accredited Criminal Law Specialists‘, including our Principal Ugur Nedim who has been certified by the Law Society as an Accredited Criminal Law Specialist since 2005 and been a leading criminal defence lawyer for 25 years, and James Clements who is also certified as an Accredited Criminal Law Specialist and has 19 years of experience.
All of our lawyers have vast courtroom experience and are able to provide the highest quality legal representation to our valued clients.
All criminal and traffic cases
We represent clients in a wide range of criminal and traffic law cases, including:
- drink driving, drug driving & other major traffic offences
- drug possession and drug supply
- fraud and dishonesty
- assaults, indecent assaults & AVOs, all the way up to:
- some of Australia’s most serious & complex commercial drug cases, sexual assault cases, murder & manslaughter cases, armed robberies, money laundering and white collar and corporate crime cases.
Free first appointment
If you are going to court for a criminal or traffic law case, we offer a free first appointment during which one of our experienced, specialist criminal defence lawyers will carefully explain the law, your options and the best way forward, as well as the fees involved.
Flexible conference options
We also offer flexible conference options including attending one of our many offices across the Sydney Metropolitan Area and beyond, over the phone, or via Skype, Zoom or Facetime.
We also offer free parking at our head offices in the Sydney CBD, which are located in Museum Towers across the road from the Downing Centre Court complex.
Transparent and affordable fees
Our firm appreciates that not everyone can afford an expensive legal bill and so we offer a range of flexible options such as:
- Fixed Fees for many of our services and for less-serious criminal and traffic cases,
- Realistic cost estimates for serious and complex criminal cases, and
- Easy Payment methods.
All Courts, Prisons and Police Stations
We Speak Your Language
Our culturally diverse team comes from a wide range of backgrounds, and we have lawyers who speak Arabic, Korean, Filipino, Greek, Chinese (Cantonese), Turkish, Vietnamese, Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu.
And members of our administrative team can speak Chinese Mandarin and Cantonese, Arabic, Vietnamese, Greek, Polish, Turkish, Krio, Zulu, Afrikaans, Xhosa, Xitsonga, Tswane, Sesotho, Setswana, Sepedi and Sotho.

Sydney Criminal Lawyers® Help Fund
As a socially responsible law firm, we have established the ‘SCL Help Fund‘ – which is a charity entirely funded by our practice.
The fund aims to help those in need – regardless of race, ethnicity, gender or even species (animals included).
We have had the privilege of donating many thousands of dollars to a wide range of amazing charities that are making a real difference to the lives of those in need.
Our Help Fund has also allowed us to wholly fund the building and ongoing costs of a school in an impoverished region of Bangladesh – giving children access to education they would otherwise be unlikely to obtain.
Our commitment to social responsibility also sees our team participating in a range of fundraising events.
