SCL LAWYER

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preparation of defence materials and issuance of effective ‘representations’ (formal requests for charges to be withdrawn or downgraded), as well as her ability to intensely and persuasively push for charges to be dropped, or fight for cases to be thrown out of court.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.

What Mariecar's Clients Say

Delivered impressive results in the courtroom

I really want to thank Mariecar for the amazing work was done on my case. I highly recommend Mariecar for their exceptional legal expertise, unwavering support, and dedication to securing the best possible outcome. From the outset, they demonstrated professionalism, empathy, and a thorough understanding of the law. Throughout my case, they provided clear guidance, maintained excellent communication, and delivered impressive results in the courtroom. Their strategic approach and commitment to client satisfaction truly set them apart.

She helped guide me with all the legal requirements and made it easy ensuring I didn’t feel overwhelmed

I cannot thank Mariecar Capili enough. Having never had any issues with the law in the past and not knowing the right course of action, she helped guide me with all the legal requirements and made it easy ensuring I didn’t feel overwhelmed. Mariecar was fantastic and helped me along the way and whenever I needed some advice or updates she was on hand to assist me. Her expertise, specialist knowledge and guidance is excellent. Thank you again for all your help.

Both calming, understanding but also assertive

Just want to say a huge thanks to Mariecar Capili. Found myself in real need of a lawyer and the case itself was very much shut case. But throughout the process Mariecar was both calming, understanding but also assertive. You have so many ideas and thoughts in your head but she is the lawyer for a reason and managed to overturn the initial outcome into a positive one on appeal. She fought hard and argued my case with a number of different points. I couldnt be happier and owe her more gratitude as this would have seriously had a negative impact. Thank you Mariecar!

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.

Her guidance led to me getting a positive result

Mariecar was extremely professional and experienced and her guidance led to me getting a positive result.

Having Mariecar helping me made a frightened experience a lot more bearable. Her knowledge and experience in these matters made the difference. She is friendly and easy to talk to and communicated what I needed to know easily.

Professional and dedicated criminal lawyers

From the very first contact with Sam (Wissam) my wife and I knew that he had our backs and would work very hard on my case. Sam kept us updated regularly and also in the handover of my case to his colleague Mariecar, who was also very professional and a skilled communicator. I would highly recommend Sam and Mariecar as professional and dedicated criminal lawyers.
