He was invested
Fahim represented me in court and assured me he would do his best to get me the best possible outcome. He was invested and answered any questions I had swiftly, before and after. I'd also like to thank Julianne Lim who was extremely warm and made me feel at ease as soon as I met her. Having never gone through this process before and feeling quite intimidated and embarrassed, she made it clear she was there to help and clearly explained to me the best way to move forward without any judgment. Thank you Sydney Criminal Lawyers.
