Ms Sherleen Chand is the Senior Associate of our law firm.
She is a highly sought-after criminal defence lawyer who has an outstanding track record of successfully defending clients who are accused of serious and complex crimes; including several notable murder, intent to murder, manslaughter, aggravated sexual assault, multi-million dollar fraud and commercial drug importation, supply and manufacture cases.
Sherleen is a formidable defence lawyer who is respected by judges, magistrates, police and DPP lawyers alike, and is frequently able to persuade prosecutors to discontinue criminal proceedings altogether, or accept significantly reduced charges in cases where the prosecution evidence is strong.
Sherleen is also vastly experienced in interlocutory matters such as bail applications and committal hearings, having achieved success in cases where clients received advice from others lawyers that positive outcomes were impossible to achieve; including bail in commercial drug cases involving in excess of 300 kilograms, murder allegations and extremely serious multiple sexual assault allegations, and the discharge of defendants at committal hearings despite the prosecution evidence initially appearing to be insurmountable.
She excels at developing and implementing defence strategies that achieve results, and has the ability to digest enormous amounts of material, identify flaws and build defence cases that lead to positive outcomes.
She also has substantial experience in less serious matters that remain in the Local Court, such as many assaults, drug cases, larceny and fraud cases, AVOs and traffic matters such as drink and drug driving, driving whilst disqualified, negligent driving and licence appeals.
Sherleen’s clients benefit from her experience and expertise, professionalism, dedication and dogged determination, and her formidable courtroom skills.
She is an integral member of Sydney’s best criminal defence team.

Delivered the optimal result

What I really liked about Sherleen was
Sherleen Chand was a pleasure to deal with. What I really liked about Sherleen was the fact that she would always respond to my calls, texts or emails in a very timely manner, whereas some lawyers you’re constantly chasing them down. She was all over my case and up to date with everything after it being handed to her at the last minute. She left no stone unturned and was up front and honest with me the whole time. Sherleen was very well spoken and confident in the court room and knew exactly what to say when and when to just be quiet. We got the non conviction we were after. Would highly recommend her to anyone dealing with any sort of matter.
