Ali's Testimonials
Couldn't be happier

Couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Ali was superb! I would highly recommend his services!

Cameron C.

Unconditional effort and time put fourth

I Strongly recommend Sydney Criminal Lawyers, specifically Ali Saleh in relation to the unconditional effort and time put fourth by him during my case. In what was an extremely stressful situation for myself, family and peers, he created a solid foundation of support through his immense networking to minimise the stress placed on us during the trial.
His compassionate nature in conjunction with his interpersonal skills enabled him to generate a great rapport with myself and others around me, giving me copious amounts of confidence leading up to my hearing.

Extremely happy with the outcome

Can’t describe how happy I am

Can’t describe how happy I am with the outcome. With a charge of hitting a police car twice and a high range drink driver, I have walked out of court a free man, all with the professionalism of Ali and Sydney Criminal Lawyers! Amazing

Oliver V.

We were speechless and ecstatic about the result

My partner had more than 10 charges against him, including driving whilst suspended and driving without a supervising driver as he was on his L’s.

He was in Silverwater MRCC for 4 weeks after have already been given bonds and bail conditions stating under no circumstance was he to drive.

He had already been in lock up twice before the detention, spending a night up in Amber Laurel and five nights being shuffled between numerous different lock ups and police stations; therefore on his third appearance in court, we expected remand.

Being 19 and wide-eyed to the reality of his situation, he was not coping being locked up so when Saba Reaze was able to get him out on Section 9 Bonds we were speechless and ecstatic about the result.

Saba triumphed and championed Luke’s cause, to wit; a result that we thought not even possible was achieved.

Section nine bonds meant he was let out on the day of court on the 24th April 2018; it had seemed so far out of the realm of possibility, that it wasn’t even discussed as an option.

I didn’t even know Saba could have achieved this result it is so outstanding, we are beyond grateful, thanks to Saba Reaze and Ali Saleh for their help to Luke.

An advo of 2 years was reduced to 6 months

Ali saleh is a great lawyer and would highly recommend to anyone facing criminal charges. Ali handled the case with a high level of professionalism, was able to keep me calm and negotiated with police prosecutors the day before court. When the case went to court there was no hesitation from the prosecution to approve a section 32 and the case was dismissed. An advo of 2 years was reduced to 6 months. Thanks Ali for the great work !!! I can finally get my life back on track and move forwards. I would highly recommend Sydney criminal lawyers especially Ali in particular. I’m very happy with today’s outcome!

He spoke to me as an equal

I was issued with a subpoena to give evidence in a criminal case and was very worried and stressed about it. I obviously needed expert legal advice. My usual lawyer, who I had used for a number of years, referred me to their internal criminal law expert. I met with him and not only did he instill fear into me he also saw it as an opportunity to extort $3K from me. My gut feeling told me to find someone else. This is when I contacted Sydney Criminal Lawyers and met with Ali Saleh, one of their Senior Criminal Lawyer.

Ali was very knowledgable in the type of matter and everything involved from the police to the prosecution as well as what my role would be. He spoke to me as an equal and gave me practical advice and comfort about the situation. The fees were very reasonable and when I asked if he thought I would need legal representation beyond our initial meeting and during court appearances he said no and that I had nothing to worry about.

Compared to what my family lawyer’s rep was trying to do I was amazed he did not take advantage of me. Turns out he was right. My statement was not tendered to court and I was not required to give evidence. I know this is lengthy however I am so grateful for what he did that I want others to know. He even took my calls and answered my text messages after our meeting. I highly recommend Ali and Sydney Criminal Lawyers. Thank you for helping me!

Paul S.

I’m so happy with the outcome it couldn’t be better

I highly recommend Ali for any criminal matter. Ali handled the case professionally and calmly and was able to negotiate with the prosecution to get a section 32 application approved for an assault occasioning actual bodily harm charge, and an ADVO reduced from 2 years to 6 months. No criminal charge was recorded and the case was dismissed.

Ali negotiated with police and the prosecutor and answers all my texts and calls regarding the case in a timely manner. At first i was so stressed about the legal charges that I was skeptical in which lawyer to go with but I’m glad I stuck with Ali. I’m so happy with the outcome it couldn’t be better.

Ali negotiated the case so well there was no hesitation from the prosecution to approve the section 32 . He also referred me to a great psychiatrist for the report who wrote a fantastic report. Thank you Ali and Sydney criminal lawyer for all your help during this tough time !!!

Unbelievable result thank you

From the moment I walked into SCL office in Castlereagh St I was greeted by total professionalism. Ali Saleh greeted me, read the paperwork and gave me a professional and realistic opinion on what I was charged with, which was high range PCA whilst speeding 22 km over.

I would like to thank SCL especially Ali Saleh for the professional Advise. Ali kept me out of prison and for that I am forever grateful.

I would definitely recommend Ali and SCL team for the professionalism shown.

Andre M.

Professional, fantastic and sagacious

I will highly commend Ali Saleh , who is professional, fantastic and sagacious. I was charged driving whilst suspended which would punish me with $3000+ fines and 1 year suspension. Since this was my first time go to the court and I was quite nervous. Ali helped me to reduce my stress and told me he would back me up. On the court, I just sit behind and listen him. After his magic statement, the magistrate is persuaded to give me a section 10 with good behaviour. That would be the best result I can obtain. Thanks for Ali’s efforts. He is a really really professional lawyer.

Case dismissed, charges dropped!

Ali Saleh, remember this name if you want to win a case you thought you never had a chance of winning.

My partner and I were both charged with common assault and both had an ADVO put against us.

We went in expecting to be charged along with the ADVO and walked out with the case dismissed, charges dropped and even the ADVO was dropped!!!

We needed these charges dropped due to my job role.

Can not thank him enough for allowing me to persue my career.

Thank u again Mr Saleh!!!!!

I have never been to court before, and he led me from start to finish, and how to handle myself in there, and his submission was very professional and a great approach.

Highly recommended.
