Many thanks to Sydney Criminal Lawyers and in particular, Steve Patrick, for their recent legal advice. Having never needed specific legal advice in the past, it was such a relief to have found them. We had an appointment arranged for us within 24 hours of our enquiry. Very grateful for their support.

A truly excellent result in a very difficult situation

A truly excellent result in a very difficult situation, stalking/intimidation charges were completely dropped by the magistrate, thank you very much Osman Samin.

And thank you Steven Patrick for your reassurance in explaining aspects of the law to us, as we were feeling very dismayed and overwhelmed initially.

The set fee structure is also very helpful.

An excellent firm.
