SCL LAWYER

Mariecar Capili is an Senior Criminal Defence Lawyer with several years of specialist experience in serious and complex criminal cases.

Mariecar has an outstanding track record of success in a range of both indictable cases (those capable of being referred to higher courts) and strictly indictable cases (those which must be finalised in a higher court due to their seriousness), from serious drug cases such as commercial drug manufacture, supply and importation, to complex fraud and cyber-crime cases, to allegations of serious offences against the person including sexual assault, assault occasioning grievous bodily harm and murder, intent to murder and manslaughter.

She is known for her exceptional analytical skills when it comes to dissecting prosecution materials with a view to ascertaining elements (ingredients) of offences which the prosecution is unable to prove to the required standard, building defence cases through the issuance of subpoenas (to obtain potentially exculpatory evidence), preparation of defence materials and issuance of effective ‘representations’ (formal requests for charges to be withdrawn or downgraded), as well as her ability to intensely and persuasively push for charges to be dropped, or fight for cases to be thrown out of court.

In addition to serious criminal cases, Mariecar also appears in courts across the Sydney metropolitan area for ‘summary cases’ (those which are finalised in the Local Court) such as drink and drug driving, drug possession, apprehended violence orders, common assault, larceny and driver licence appeals.

Mariecar’s clients benefit from her vast experience in criminal defence, her thorough knowledge of criminal law, practice and procedure, her ability to formulate and apply defence strategies which produce results and her formidable courtroom skills.

Mariecar is an invaluable member of Sydney’s best criminal defence team.

Good result with no conviction in my case

Thank you to Ms. Mariecar Capili for your service to me for having a good result with no conviction in my case. Highly recommend.

The judge dropped my charges and I got the best result

I had Tuan as my lawyer which we firstly decided to plea not guilty. My court date was set for 6 months. As the time went on we decided to make a plea of guilty with a more lenient set of facts from the police. We in the end decided to make a section 32 application. It was a very anxious time for me. I opened up to my lawyer Tuan about how all this time it was affecting my life. I couldn’t live normally for the entire time my court case went on. I wanted the case to end, there were many times I tried to get Tuan to bring my case forward so it could be dealt with, and there were times it would take him a week to 2 weeks to get back to me, which left me in the lurch and made me feel very abandoned, uneasy and unsure of my future. I think he was just a busy guy with many cases. If that was the case I’d wish he’d tell me. I was then passed to a different lawyer, Mariecar, who I thought was excellent, she answered all my calls, always responded quickly and efficiently with an honest answer. When we went into court she was very professional. And was the glowing star in the room. The judge dropped my charges and I got the best result anyone could have hoped for for any case. Mariecar was very pleasant to deal with and had a very patient and calm demeanour. I cannot recommend Mariecar enough. I give my thanks to Tuan and Mariecar for making my Case a complete success. Thank you again.

We got the best result available to us

Mariecar was great when we needed help. We got the best result available to us, and her communication with us was fantastic. Thanks so much M!

We ended up with a result that was in my favour

As someone who has never had an issue with the law previously this was all very new. Mariecar took the time to hear me out and understand my situation. At no time did I ever feel any judgement. Together we had a game plan and on the day it was executed perfectly and we ended up with a result that was in my favour and to be honest I didn't see coming. It was amazing.
Thanks again Mariecar.
