Why Sydney Criminal Lawyers®?

At Sydney Criminal Lawyers®, we specialise in murder and manslaughter cases – our principal, Mr Ugur Nedim, has over 15 years experience successfully defending some of the most notorious murder cases.

Our unparalleled knowledge and experience in this complex area of law allows us to obtain the best possible results for our clients in these cases.

Our expert defence team can help you avoid the heavy maximum penalties under the law by raising any issues with the prosecution case at an early stage and pushing to have the charges dropped outside of court.

If the prosecution does not drop the charges, we will provide the best possible representation in court by examining all relevant witnesses and raising any defences that you may have to the charges – for example, where you were coerced or threatened into agreeing to kill another person (duress).

Alternatively, if you wish to accept the allegations against you and enter a plea of ‘guilty,’ we can assist you in obtaining a favourable outcome by stressing to the court any factors which may reduce the seriousness of your offending.

When it comes to your representation in these matters, only the best will do. We guarantee the expertise of one of our senior criminal defence lawyers who have a wealth of experience working on complex criminal cases.

So for the best possible result in your ‘conspiracy to murder’ case, trust the experts. Call us today on (02) 9261 8881 and organise your FREE first conference to find out how we can help you win your case.
