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.

We Can Help!

Whether you are charged with a traffic offence or are facing criminal charges, we will fight to ensure you get the best possible result, whatever your particular situation may be.
