He has successfully defended matters ranging from drug possession, assault and drink driving, through to complex commercial drug supply, importation, serious assaults, sexual assaults and dangerous driving matters.
He is also uniquely experienced in representing corporate clients during investigations and prosecutions for alleged regulatory offences, and in providing exceptional representation against Crime Commission and ICAC prosecutions, and ‘white collar’ criminal prosecutions generally.
Fouad is highly committed to his cases and compassionate towards his clients, providing them with guidance and support throughout what can be otherwise be an unduly stressful period in their lives.
He prides himself on providing accurate advice about the law and legal options in a way that is easy to understand, and has represented clients from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Fouad Is a really Good Lawyer!
I have no hesitation recommending this firm. I was represented by the senior associate Fouad and I obtained an excellent result. Realistic advice and very down to earth!
The judge was happy
My brother was charged by DPP with a number of serious crimes. He had consulted lawyer Fouad about this over a year ago. There were a few other people charged and Fouad negotiated the charges and appeared in court in Downing Centre District court. He prepared our documents and the judge was happy that he had sent all of these to him before the court date unlike other lawyers there. He represents my brother very well and we got a fantastic result. For the service we get the fees were great. Excellent lawyer Fouad.
I would recommend him for complex criminal charges
I couldn’t have been happier with my lawyer. Fouad was very supportive and realistic and told me what to expect. He didn’t give me unrealistic advice and I am very grateful for that. It is because of Fouad that I am not in a jail cell, and I would recommend him for complex criminal charges. He negotiated my charges and strategically put me in the best legal position. Highly recommended!
Very good result
Best result from Fouad and getting very good lawyer. He knows the law very good and in court he get very good result. I thank you.
Got me the best result possible
Foaud was very honest and direct about my options and the evidence that was on the table. He was able to guide me through the whole process of something quite uncomfortable and at the end of it got me the best result possible.
Saved my life
Fouad Awada he is very good lawyer. All I can say is he just saved my life.
He knew how to deliver a very balanced submission
Fouad was excellent in court. He knew how to deliver a very balanced submission with a somewhat hostile magistrate. I have no doubt that without him, things could have been a lot worse. Instead, I got the best outcome I had hoped for.
Pleasure to work with
I was represented by Fouad, and he was a pleasure to work with. Thank you Fouad and I am very happy with the result.
I would be in jail had it not been for Fouad
I would be in jail had it not been for Fouad. The knowledge and expertise he demonstrated was profound. The best and most fortunate decision I made was having Fouad by my side. He is a true lawyer and will go out of his way to get the result.
