High level of care for their matter

Recommendation of Pamela Saroukos.

Having just come out of the courtroom this morning, I’d like to take a moment to leave a note of how I found SCL, in particular, the services and expertise of Pamela Saroukos.

From the first consultation Pamela was quite clear about managing expectation and thoroughly talked me through the process of how to best approach my matter. I was given a folder including all relevant documents such as character references guidelines which were all quite comprehensive, giving me the information needed for improving our chances of getting that all important minimum penalty (we did!).

Pamela kept in contact via email and phone from the first consultation to the court date and was easily contacted for any queries or concerns. A callback or courtesy sms was always given if I was unable to get through.

I would recommend Pamela to anybody seeking legal representation who demands a high level of care for their matter.

Better outcome than the desired result!!

My case was handled by Pamela Saroukos. Throughout this, she kept a professional and realistic approach to my case. Not only did Pamela reassure me, but she actually cared about my personal betterment throughout the case. She was a class act when it came down to it and managed to get and even better outcome than the desired result!! I definitely know who to go to if I ever need to get representation again. Thank you Pamela and SCL.

Definitely would recommend. Ask for Pamela Saroukos she does great work and got me a section 10 bond for the second time for the same offence. it was a amazing result and one i didn’t think was possible. thanks again 🙂


Professional from start to finish

Extremely happy and grateful with the outcome today for my appeal at the district court. After being represented by another firm and unsuccessfully gaining a section 10, I decided to switch to Sydney Criminal Lawyers® as my last chance to fight for it. Pamela Saroukos handled my case and I couldn’t be happier. She was professional from start to finish and it definitely showed in court through her performance and ability to get me a section 10. I would like to thank her for her hard work and the staff at Sydney Criminal Lawyers® for giving me a second chance in life.

Case withdrawn

I was charged with common assault and by online search I found Sydney Criminal Lawyers®. They prepared for my case. I am thankful to Pamela, Hayder and special thanks to Ali Saleh for making me understand about the court proceedings and to come at hearing, handling it professionally and to get the case withdrawn by them. I would highly recommend Ali Saleh to everyone who want a right advice on their assault case and to work towards success.

Section 10 which was the best result

I had a traffic offence and Pamela was amazing.

From the first meeting she was calm, considerate and understanding. Was very easy to get in touch with and always managed to respond quickly. On the day of court, she made me feel at ease. She had everything ready to go, had everything prepared and explained what was happening.

She was able to get a Section 10 which was the best result. Highly recommend Pamela!! Thank you

Trust me Jimmy, this was best decision so far in my entire life I had taken to approach you & SCL, and the rest is history

Dear Jimmy & Johanna,

Thank you. It is the only thing that came to mind as I started this letter. Thank you for representing me during a very stressful time in my life. Your support and advice were greatly appreciated. Your entire team, including Johanna who definitely needs a special mention, who has always answered questions and kept me posted during this entire process, the entire office staff who I interacted at some stage,  Pamela, Sakina, Mia, Avinash, Mary who promptly answered my random silly questions and passed on messages, great work ethic I must say and this has definitely has been wonderful to work with and [it’s been] a pleasure to get to know you and your team.

I wanted to express my gratitude for your efforts and dedication for my case. It was quite a long and upsetting process and I could never thought anyone would stay by my side for this long but you were very generous regarding it.

It is really hard to make someone who doesn’t know you believe that you are innocent but you still put all your efforts in clearing my name.

I want to thank you for your affectionate guidance, for your understanding, your interest in my case, your belief that I was worth being your client. I learned so much about how to navigate the life I have been so eager to set sail upon from observing and listening to you. We didn’t really have that much contact – which is praise for your legal skills – but you made an impression on me that softened the stress and encouraged me to not stress about it and move on doing my daily routine.

I am a stronger, better person – optimistic and confident because you were my Lawyer.

I wanted to express how grateful I am to have had you in my corner all along. You believed in me and my situation even when I may have doubted myself. It means a lot to me to have had someone who I had complete trust in handling the most difficult event of my life.

I am grateful to you that you took all the stress and restored everything out for me. Your faith, knowledge and determination were something that solved my worries. Thank you.

Trust me Jimmy, this was best decision so far in my entire life I had taken to approach you & SCL, and the rest is history.

The decision to approach SCL & your team, made my life, brought my life back on track or else I cannot even imagine the disaster I would have had to encounter.

I strongly believe – you have made that difference in my life, and owe you one for it.

Jimmy, I still remember my word to you and I am working on it for you and Johanna, it’s just time consuming as I am trying to work on something which is a personalized idea, hopefully I will bring it down to your office when I have it in place.

Absolutely 101% content with SCL and your services.

Lastly signing off with a note of thank fullness & gratitude.

Kindest Regards
