Helped me win my case this morning
So happy with Salam Shammu who helped me win my case this morning. So on top of everything, I was was relaxed and confident going into court. Would 100% recommend!
Genuinely concerned for the best outcome
I received great advice from Salam. He is genuinely concerned for the best outcome for his client, has discernment and cares for the person.
Exceeded my expectations
I recently had Salam represent me and he exceeded my expectations. Considering this was my second offence he was able to get me the best possible outcome and I could not be more thankful!
Glad I had him representing me
Salam Shammu represented me with a serious driving offence as a p plate driver. He was very professional and organised, helping me with all the different questions I had throughout the whole process and got me the best possible outcome I could’ve hoped for. On the day I was very impressed by his work and was glad I had him representing me. Extremely happy with his service and would highly recommend Salam!
Very clear throughout the entire process
Would highly recommend Salam Shammu. He was thorough in his approach to the case and was very clear throughout the entire process which enabled him to achieve the desired results.
He was respectful, clear and concise with his arguments
I can't thank Salam enough. I had contacted two other law firms prior to contacting Salam and both gave me no confidence in their ability or that I would have any chance in my appeal. From the first conversation with Salam, he gave me confidence that I could achieve a favourable outcome without being unrealistic in my expectations. He clearly explained what I needed to do in the lead up to the hearing and on the day he walked me through how he would approach the case and showed me his clear notes which logically laid out each argument point and sub-points depending on the judge's response. He was respectful, clear and concise with his arguments and we ended up with the best possible outcome as a result. I cannot thank him enough for his help. 100% he will be the first person I contact if I ever need legal help in the future.
Professional throughout the engagement
I cannot thank Sydney Criminal Lawyers, and more importantly Salam enough. They were very responsive to my initial request and were professional throughout the engagement. Without Salam's guidance and preparation prior to the hearing, there is no chance I would have received the outcome I was after. He gave me feedback on one line in an apology letter which I wrote which proved to be the difference with me getting the outcome I needed. He could have easily skimmed over my letter, but he took the time to read it carefully and this attention to detail proved the difference. I would 100% recommend him and will keep his details with me in case I ever need legal advice again.
The best in the business
Criminal Lawyer Salam Shammu, is the best in the business. His advice, recommendation and defensive lead to the best possible outcome for my case. I highly recommend Salam & Sydney Criminal Lawyers for future upcoming cases/matters. Highly professional.
