No criminal law firm in Sydney has achieved a track record of success comparable to Sydney Criminal Lawyers.

Our Principal, Mr Ugur Nedim, has over 20 years of experience in criminal defence and has been recognised by the Law Society of New South Wales as an Accredited Criminal Law Specialist since 2005.

Only a small proportion of criminal lawyers are recognised as Accredited Specialists, and Mr Nedim has consistently maintained this highly coveted certification for 15 years.

Mr Nedim has defended over two dozen murder trials achieving outstanding success, has represented clients in the most serious drug importation and supply cases in Australia (including the nation’s largest ever heroin importation case, where all three of his clients were found not guilty, while the remaining three co-accused – represented by other criminal law firms – were found guilty), dozens of serious sexual assault cases, complex fraud cases, armed robberies and many other serious and complex criminal matters.

Our law firm consistently manages to have cases withdrawn when other firms advise clients to plead guilty, and to achieve not guilty verdicts where the prosecution evidence appears at first instance to be insurmountable.

These results are achieved through developing and implementing effective defence strategies, harnessing our network of experts in a range of fields and fighting for positive outcomes.
