SCL LAWYER

Mr Wissam Philopos has spent years in the criminal justice system developing a reputation as being a fierce, effective and highly-respected criminal defence advocate.

Wissam commenced his legal career in a Sydney-based law firm where he practised primarily in criminal defence.

He joined the Sydney Criminal Lawyers team after establishing himself as a passionate and dedicated criminal lawyer with the ability to consistently produce exceptional results.

Wissam practises at all levels of the criminal justice system, from the Local and Children’s Courts to the Supreme Court of New South Wales its Court of Criminal Appeal.

He is an empathetic defence lawyer who ensures his clients are taken care of throughout the criminal process, from being served with a court attendance all the way to finalisation – whether that involves the withdrawal of charges or a defended hearing or jury trial in the higher courts.

He has a special focus on serious criminal cases – from drug supply, manufacture and importation, to assaults causing grievous bodily harm, to complex fraud cases, sexual assaults, manslaughter and murder cases – where he is able to formulate and implement defence strategies that produce results.

However, he also practises extensively in less-serious cases such as driving matters, drug possession, AVOs and assaults, where he ensures no stone is left unturned when it comes to putting clients in the best possible position to achieve optimal outcomes.

Wissam is an integral member of Sydney’s best criminal defence team.
