Give these two superstars a pay rise
Awesome job from these guys! Very reliable and professional. Fahim and Sherleen both set me up for success and prepared my case perfectly. Very honest people and even took time out of their personal lives help me out. They travelled to a rural local court to represent me and got the best outcome possible for me. Today could not have gone any better. I am one very happy and relieved customer! If the boss is reading this, give these two superstars a pay rise. You guys are definitely on my Christmas card list! Thanks heaps!

She was always there for me whenever I needed her
Sherleen Chand is a legend. I am thankful to her for giving me second opportunity in life. She was upfront regarding my matter the first day I met her and she got me the result which gave me an opportunity to rebuild my life again. She was always there for me whenever I needed her and answer my questions promptly whenever I had any. And today on the sentencing day she assured me what the result was going to be and boom it happened. Once again, thank you Sherleen I owe you the second opportunity you gave me.

Showed more presence and confidence than other lawyers
Being new to Australia, I was unsure where to start looking for legal advice. I thought the excellent google reviews were too good to be true, but Sydney Criminal Lawyers really are this good. I was quickly given an appointment with Sherleen and within 5 minutes I knew this company was for me. It would have been easy for her to tell me everything would be ok just so I hired her, but she was realistic and honest which is what I needed with the serious charges I was facing. Samuel was assigned my case he gave me simple achievable instructions I could follow and advice that would give me the best chance of a good result. What really impressed me was inside the courtroom, I sat through a number of cases before mine and Samuel showed more presence and confidence than other lawyers who had obviously had many more years’ experience in the profession than him. Samuel got me a Section 10, the best possible outcome and I can’t thank him enough. If you’re in some trouble and reading these reviews I would recommend getting in touch with him.

Attained a successful case in court yesterday
Extremely satisfied! Attained a successful case in court yesterday. Sherleen Chand is by far the best lawyer I've been to yet. She did an amazing job. We had no hope to get my licence back within 3 months for mid range drink driving. Not only did I get my licence back, but no conviction and fine as well. Fantastic service many Thanks!👌👌
