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!!!!!

The best possible outcome, a section 10!

Ali Saleh represented me for my offence and got the best possible outcome, a section 10.

He was very compassionate, professional and always there to answer any questions before the hearing.

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.
