Mr Avinash Singh is an exceptional senior criminal lawyer who has been a member of the Sydney Criminal Lawyers defence team for several years.

Mr Singh commenced his career as a law clerk to some of the finest criminal defence barristers in Australia, gaining valuable insight into advocacy skills in the higher courts.

After working as a lawyer with another firm, he was handpicked to join our team and worked closely with our principal Mr U. Nedim on a number of serious and complex cases, assisting to devise and implement strategies to win matters by having them withdrawn by the prosecution or thrown out of court.

His unique experience and insight have since allowed him to consistently achieve outstanding results in many of the firm’s most serious and complex cases, ranging from allegations of multi-million dollar frauds, to commercial drug importation and supply, to armed robbery, sexual assault, serious firearms charges and murder cases.

Mr Singh is extensively experienced in a range of appeals – from driver licence appeals in the Local Court, to severity and conviction appeals in the District Court, to appeals in the New South Wales Court of Criminal Appeal and defending appeals by the Crown.

He also has a wealth of experience in sentencing matters in both the Local and District Court, defended hearings, section 32 mental health applications and bail applications in the Local, District and Supreme Courts. And of course, he meticulously prepares and exceptionally executes trial matters in the District and Supreme Court.

He is a true criminal defence specialist who is passionate about achieving optimal results for his clients, whatever their case may involve.

Avinash's Testimonials
Resulted in a great outcome

I have contacted Sydney Criminal Lawyers on numerous occasions to represent me in the court of law. Solicitors Saba Rezae & Avinash Singh both represented me in court which resulted in a great outcome. Much better than what was expected anyway. I definitely recommend this law firm for anyone seeking legal representation for any matter.

No words can fully express my gratitude

No words can fully express my gratitude. Thanks to you, Avinash, you are a good lawyer, patient and professional.
Today is extremely meaningful for me and it is also a turning point of my life. Since I was charged for “assault occasioning actual bodily harm” almost 1 year ago and sentenced for section 12. After appealed to district court, finally, I received section 10!

Trust me Jimmy, this was best decision so far in my entire life I had taken to approach you & SCL, and the rest is history.

Dear Jimmy & Johanna,

Thank you. It is the only thing that came to mind as I started this letter. Thank you for representing me during a very stressful time in my life. Your support and advice were greatly appreciated. Your entire team, including Johanna who definitely needs a special mention, who has always answered questions and kept me posted during this entire process, the entire office staff who I interacted at some stage,  Pamela, Sakina, Mia, Avinash, Mary who promptly answered my random silly questions and passed on messages, great work ethic I must say and this has definitely has been wonderful to work with and [it’s been] a pleasure to get to know you and your team.

I wanted to express my gratitude for your efforts and dedication for my case. It was quite a long and upsetting process and I could never thought anyone would stay by my side for this long but you were very generous regarding it.

It is really hard to make someone who doesn’t know you believe that you are innocent but you still put all your efforts in clearing my name.

I want to thank you for your affectionate guidance, for your understanding, your interest in my case, your belief that I was worth being your client. I learned so much about how to navigate the life I have been so eager to set sail upon from observing and listening to you. We didn’t really have that much contact – which is praise for your legal skills – but you made an impression on me that softened the stress and encouraged me to not stress about it and move on doing my daily routine.

I am a stronger, better person – optimistic and confident because you were my Lawyer.

I wanted to express how grateful I am to have had you in my corner all along. You believed in me and my situation even when I may have doubted myself. It means a lot to me to have had someone who I had complete trust in handling the most difficult event of my life.

I am grateful to you that you took all the stress and restored everything out for me. Your faith, knowledge and determination were something that solved my worries. Thank you.

Trust me Jimmy, this was best decision so far in my entire life I had taken to approach you & SCL, and the rest is history.

The decision to approach SCL & your team, made my life, brought my life back on track or else I cannot even imagine the disaster I would have had to encounter.

I strongly believe – you have made that difference in my life, and owe you one for it.

Jimmy, I still remember my word to you and I am working on it for you and Johanna, it’s just time consuming as I am trying to work on something which is a personalized idea, hopefully I will bring it down to your office when I have it in place.

Absolutely 101% content with SCL and your services.

Lastly signing off with a note of thank fullness & gratitude.

Kindest Regards


I highly recommend SCL due to their professionalism, reputation, and their familiarity of the local Magistrates.

As a first time offender I was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm. I was petrified and anxious of how it would play out in court. After speaking to several law firms I decided to go with SCL. From the get-go I was impressed of the professionalism and communication between lawyer and client. Avinash Singh helped me achieve a fantastic result (Section 10 No criminal conviction).

I highly recommend SCL due to their professionalism, reputation, and their familiarity of the local Magistrates.


“I would highly recommend Sydney Criminal Lawyers to anyone.”

With my court matter I was lucky enough to be assigned Tina Domm and Avinash.

Their determination to get the results I wanted and their commitment to customer service surpassed all my expectations.

Communication was constant, clear, friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Sydney Criminal Lawyers to anyone.

Thank you so much Tina and Avinash for looking after my matter, since you guys help me I’ve never looked back.

Thank you all again – I am very grateful for everything you all did for me.

I want to say thank you for Sydney Criminal Lawyers for representing me through my recent ordeal with a low range PCA charge. They were very professional and experienced, and I am grateful that I found out about them – through similar reviews – and that they were able to help me through the whole process. My initial phone call with Mr Avinash Singh, who led me through the entire process of preparing my documents and references, and all the subsequent co-ordination and communication from my local court and district court appearances – thank you, Avinash, for being so reassuring and knowledgable throughout everything. Thank you also to Ms Maryanne Nguyen, who represented me in the local court – for being so professional and thorough – and for recommending that I proceed towards a severity appeal. Finally, a huge thank you to Mr Jack Leitner for representing me at the district court – for the time you spent reviewing the case with me, your expertise and brilliance during the actual appeal, and your kindness and concern for my personal well-being.

Thank you all again – I am very grateful for everything you all did for me.
