Wali's Testimonials
I got section 10 in district court

I received section 10(1)(b) – good behaviour. I would like to say thank you Wali Shukoor for your advice and preparation before my court date.

I had legal aid. They said I have no chance to get better result if I appeal the sentence that I got in local court. I was nervous and disappointed.

I talked with Wali and he give me hope that I can get section 10. I appealed and I prepared very well with wali’s advice and I got section 10 in district court yesterday.

All charges dismissed!

If you are confused as I once was and trying to get a trustworthy solicitor to represent you, then look no further.

After being let down by another solicitor, I was stressed and didn’t know who to trust. Like most people I googled and found good online reviews about Sydney Criminal Lawyers.

I was referred to Wali SHUKOOR.

Walli called me up a day before of my hearing and explained the way he would proceed in this matter and that’s what he did on the hearing date.

To keep it short, Wali did an amazing job, all charges dismissed and good judgement.

I will definitely recommend Wali SHUKOOR or other solicitors from Sydney Criminal Lawyers.

I ultimately received a section 10

Highly recommend Wali Shukoor if you need legal advice / lawyer to represent you at court.

I ultimately received a section 10 with good behaviour bond which I can’t ask for more.

I was charge for a criminal offence and had no idea how to deal with it as I have no experience in this. I have consulted other lawyers in different companies and no one has knowledge & intuition that comes close to Wali.

He layed out the best option for me from the very beginning which relieves my stress a lot.

Subsequently turned things around and convinced the judge to let me go without a recorded conviction.

Wali = the Champ

All charges dropped

Don’t know about Sydney Criminal Lawyers but Wali Shukoor!

This guy writes down every thing you say every single word. He’s a very intelligent and passionate guy.

Knows what he’s doing. Best thing you will feel the confidence that you are dealing with some one who’s very knowledgeable.

In court he speaks loud and confidently and has a reply to every statement of the prosecutor, that mean you voice is the last thing the judge listens to.

I was very shaken sitting at the back of the court room but he kept looking back towards me and gave the confidence. He will take time if needed and also explain you every step of the court proceedings so you will be clear and understanding what’s going on.

I have had a nasty experience with this case but Shukoor brought me the win, all charges dropped and officer in charge looked silly after.

I’m really happy with his service and professionalism.

If you believe in yourself you can believe him that he will bring the best out come you expect.

Thanks Shukoor and all the best for you next assignments.

I am now conviction free - clear criminal record!!!

I chose this firm as they were the fastest in responding, provided free consultation and set up rates with no additional charges.

My case was represented by Mr Walli Shukoor. He did not only help with my case by also supported me and helped me manage the stress which is greatly appreciated. He kept me well informed till the end. He was not just able to get my charges dropped that would likely result in criminal record, loss of points and a fine but also able to achieve the best possible outcome.

I am now conviction free – clear criminal record!!!

I highly recommend using this firm. It is best and affordable law firm with best response and outcome.

Thank you Walli and your team for you excellent work

Their attention to detail was the difference between being convicted or not

I highly recommend Mr Shukoor from Sydney Criminal Lawyers. I had been charged with Low Range PCA and Trespassing, and I had previously been given a section 10 several years ago for a different incident.

Despite already having a second chance, Mr Shukoor’s strong knowledge of the system allowed him to present my case in the best possible light, and as a result I received two further Section 10’s and remained conviction free, which was an outstanding result.

His minor attention to details could be the difference between being convicted or not.

Thanks again.

I can now rest easy knowing that my charge has been dismissed

Being in a stressful position, it was hard to find a firm that I could trust with my matter. I was fortunate enough to find SCL. And in particular, lucky to have Wali on my side. He’s an absolute professional and drilled in on all the key issues in my case. After many months of stress & anxiety, I can now rest easy knowing that my charge (which was a relatively serious one) has been dismissed. Thanks Wali!

Hus G.

The outcome was very positive and I couldn't be more happy about it

Wali Shukoor was in charge of my case and not only did he help but he supported me till the very end and because of his expertise and knowledge, the outcome was very positive and I couldn’t be more happy about it.

And so I would highly recommend anyone that needs or is looking for a law firm. It is the right place to go to and its the real deal.

Thank you Wali Shukoor and the team.

Due to a disagreement with my partner, things got out of hand which got me into trouble with the legal system. Mr Shukoor was very professional, comforting, and kept me informed during the whole process.

Due to your hard work and dedication to my case I got the best possible outcome. I will very highly recommend you to anyone out there that needs a lawyer. Once again, I want to thank you and your team for doing an amazing job.

Definitely the only lawyers I would recommend anyone uses if they take their case and freedom seriously.

Hi Wali,

Just wanted to say a big thank you for your help over the last couple months. I totally understand that my matter is small compared to others that you deal with but I appreciate you sticking with it and helping me out anyway!

I would like to thank the team at Sydney Criminal Lawyers

I would like to thank the team at Sydney Criminal Lawyers.

I would like to especially express my sincere appreciation to Mr Shukoor for your efforts and dedication to my case.

Due to a disagreement with my partner, things got out of hand which got me into trouble with the legal system.

Being a full time university student and studying a course that required a conviction free record, I was under a lot of stress and uncertainty with my career prospects. However, Mr Shukoor was very professional, comforting, and kept me informed during the whole process.

Due to your hard work, my case was dealt under section 32. As a result, I am conviction free, and is able to get the appropriate support from health professionals to get my life on track.

I will always recommend you highly to anyone out there that needs a lawyer.

Once again, I want to thank you and your team for doing an amazing job.

Amazing team at Sydney Criminal Lawyers

A big thank you to Wali Shukoor for getting me a section 10 in court today! I cannot express how happy I am with the outcome. He was really professional throughout the whole process, very organised, came prepared and really put 100% effort into my case. He took his time to answer any of my concerns and had definitely calmed all the nerves I had. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you.

Thank you again Wali and the amazing team at Sydney Criminal Lawyers.

I strongly recommended

One of the best lawyers I ever had experienced in my offence as they are very high in demand and also even I lost all my points on license still they give a time to fight my case and I win with getting section 10 on top so I strongly recommended go for it specially Wali Shakoor and Jimmy Singh.

Rajan S.

I am eternally grateful and feel my lawyer got me the best possible outcome

I was represented by Wali Shukoor from Sydney Criminal Lawyers. I pleaded guilty to the charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and initially received a Section 9 and a $500 fine. However upon appeal my lawyer managed to get me a Section 10 and the fine was dropped too!

I am eternally grateful and feel my lawyer got me the best possible outcome.

Throughout this incredibly stressful process Wali kept me well informed and reassured.

Thanks so much.

Superior support on my side

I am writing this review to sincerely thank Mr Wali Shukoor for his guidance and calming influence during my recent court appearance. With Wali’s professionalism, I had superior support on my side. He made me feel at ease and I could totally rely on his directions.

The positive outcome that we achieved is a credit to his high standards and expert advise.

I highly recommend Sydney Criminal Lawyers for their streamlined approach and carrying demeanor.

I am extremely grateful and recommend the firm to anyone

Cheers to Wali Shukoor for helping me get a section 10 for my case. I’d highly recommend the law firm, their fixed fees made it easy to sort out my matter. Wali helped me get a second chance on my future aspirations.

I am extremely grateful and recommend the firm to anyone struggling.

Mike K. 

By far the best law firm in Sydney

Thank you Wali Shukoor for your professionalism and commitment in handling my case. You conducted yourself with the utmost integrity and delivered the outcome I was hoping for which was to have the case dismissed. I finally have some closure and am able to get on with my life.

I have no hesitation in recommending you and Sydney Criminal Lawyers to others as you are by far the best law firm in Sydney.

Al M. 

The Fixed-Fee Schedule is definitely a plus

I was charged with Indecent Assault and Common Assault. I retained Wali Shukoor as my Lawyer. His experience with the vagaries of the legal system, plus a confluence of factors including 3 months of preparation, a convincing Mental Health Report, good personal References, a non-argumentative Prosecutor and a ‘nice’ Magistrate, came together just at the right time that resulted in a successful Mental Health Plan (aka Section 32 Dismissal).

I am absolutely positive that without Wali’s assistance and representation, there is no way I would have got a Section 32, and would instead get a Criminal Conviction plus a heavy Fine (or even Jail). The Fixed-Fee Schedule is definitely a plus, too. The cost was $1650 to Sydney Criminal Lawyers and $950 to a Psychologist for a Mental Health Report, which by the way, was the cheapest I found.

We got the best possible outcome for my case

Went to Sydney Criminal Lawyers looking at some very serious charges. My solicitor, Wali Shukoor, was very professional and incredibly competent at his job. We got the best possible outcome for my case.Communication was great, I was always kept informed of any new developments and the professional and personal attitude of my solicitor was always top notch. Would definitely recommend their services.Gareth E. (Published by client on Google)

I was impressed with the service

I was impressed with the service I was provided from Sydney Criminal Lawyers.

I saw Mr Sommerville and he provided some good advice about what would happen in my sentencing and the factors that would influence it. I note that he also is the speaker in the Traffic Offenders Program at PCYC.

Then on the actual sentencing date I had Wali Shukoor who did all the “heavy lifting” in the sense of all the talking with the magistrate. I don’t think I would have got the same result by myself.

It’s worth paying a bit extra if you are serious about getting a good result but also being serious about reforming yourself.

Philip W. 

Highly recommend this firm

Sydney Criminal Lawyers were worth every cent. Professional from the first point of contact and so understanding and easy to deal with. Never once was I treated as a criminal. Wali managed to exceed my expectations dealing with my matter and got the least possible sentence when a more harsh looked inevitable. Highly recommend this firm.

I was able to get a lower sentence than expected

Was charged with driving whilst disqualified. With the help of Wali Shukoor, I was able to get a lower sentence than I expected and am very pleaserd with the results! Would have been a much more heavier fine and a longer sentence but Wali was able to pull it off for a very happy result!

Gavin K. 

I would recommend them to everyone.
