Helped me throughout the whole time

Salam Shammu really helped me throughout the whole time and was wonderful.

I got all favourable outcomes

They are the best. Went to court for traffic related offence and what I thought was going to be a harsh sentence, Salam Shammu somehow turned it around and I got all favourable outcomes. He explained everything very professionally from the start, clear and concise, and took the time to make sure I know what my options are and what the risk versus chance of each are and is fully supportive and helpful of the option I chose. His persuasive words and professional mannerisms definitely helped my case, I am glad he represented me. Simply the best.

Mr Salam Shammu handled my case like an absolute professional, with great care and consideration, helping me navigate through my options. I couldn't be happier with the positive result.

Professional and straightforward, courteous, patient

I had the pleasure of getting legal representation from Mr Salam Shamu and it was money well spent, I’d actually pay double for half the work he provided me and to top it all off my case was dismissed. He was very professional and straightforward, courteous, patient and I had the feeling from the very beginning that he knew what he was doing and will provide me with the results that he provided me with today! I definitely recommend using Sydney Criminal Lawyers if you prefer lawyers who are contactable and care about the client as well.

A true angel sent from above

Salam Shammu, what more can I say, a true angel sent from above, all in one day my 18 year old was involved in a police pursuit, reckless driving, failing to present Id, no plates present, in possession of tiny amount of drugs with its equipment and conversations exchanged, he saw right through my son of what kind of person he truely is and what he just needed. If you all have faults in any of these matters he is the man to see.He will help in so little time if you are ever stressed. The outcome we received 18 months good behaviour bond the best of the best take into consideration of all the seriousness of charges. We will never forget how you’ve changed our lives.
