Mariecar Capili is a Senior Associate 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preparation of defence materials and issuance of effective ‘representations’ (formal requests for charges to be withdrawn or downgraded), as well as her ability to intensely and persuasively push for charges to be dropped, or fight for cases to be thrown out of court.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.
An unbiased and fair hearing to attain the correct judicial sentencing
Unfortunately I found myself in a position that I needed a lawyer. Although on the surface it was a simple conviction it became very clear after my first court hearing that the underlying complications made it difficult to navigate through the case and although there were exceptional circumstances that would normally allow me (in my own words and not that of SCL) an unbiased and fair hearing to attain the correct judicial sentencing, it became clear I would have a conviction. I was assigned Mariecar Capili. From the outset she was professional, polite, non judgmental, well presented and gave me confidence that we would attain the correct result.
In the end the result was correct and I felt pleased with the outcome. Highly recommended. I cant thank Mariecar enough.
