Ugur Nedim - Criminal Defence Lawyer
B.A., LL.B., G.D.L.P., LL.M., Acc. Spec. (Criminal Law)
Accredited Criminal Law Specialist
Barrister & Solicitor
Mr Ugur Nedim is the principal of Sydney Criminal Lawyers.
He has a distinguished and successful career as an exceptional criminal defence lawyer and has been recognised by the Law Society of NSW as an Accredited Criminal Law Specialist for many years.
Mr Nedim commenced his criminal law career in 1992 as a law clerk with specialist criminal lawyers Brezniak Neil-Smith and Co, under the mentorship of legendary criminal defence lawyer Angus Neil-Smith (now retired).
He completed a combined Bachelor of Laws / Bachelor of Arts degree, then a Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice and finally a Master of Laws degree at Sydney University; achieving a rare 'High Distinction average'.
He commenced practising as a criminal & traffic defence 'advocate' (in-court lawyer) for prominent criminal defence firm Freemans in late 1998; representing clients in a range of criminal & driving cases such a 'drink driving', 'assault', 'AVO', 'drug cases' etc.
He conducted dozens of defended hearings, achieving an outstanding success rate.
He started 'Nedim Lawyers - Criminal Defence Specialists' in 2001, which later became 'Sydney Criminal Lawyers'.
Since that time, Mr Nedim has represented clients in some of Australia's highest profile and most difficult criminal cases, including:
- Australia's largest ever drug importation trial, which involved the importation of over $600 million dollars worth of heroin; all 3 clients found 'not guilty'.
- Over 15 murder trials, including those arising from the 2003 'gangland wars' in Western Sydney;
- Dozens of other serious criminal trials, including extremely complex fraud cases, sexual assault cases, armed robberies, drug supply / manufacture / importation cases, firearms cases, serious driving cases such as dangerous driving occasioning death/GBH etc.
Mr Nedim is a dedicated, knowledgeable and persuasive criminal lawyer who is respected by magistrates and judges.
He fights hard to have cases 'dropped' and is frequently able to defend and win serious criminal cases that other criminal lawyers are unable to win (see Recent Cases).
He is also vastly experienced in less-serious local court cases, having conducted 3000+ local court matters over his career, with a particular emphasis on 'drink driving', 'assault', 'fraud', 'indecent assault', 'AVO' and 'drug' cases.
Mr Nedim is unique in that he has always practised as a high quality criminal & traffic defence lawyer, not a prosecutor or general lawyer; which have very little relevance to high quality criminal defence work.
He is respected for going the extra mile for clients, and his high-quality work is consistently praised by magistrates, judges and clients alike (see Client Testimonials).
He introduced 'fixed fees' to the criminal law profession in 2004 and an 'Accredited Specialist Guarantee' in 2005, giving clients of Sydney Criminal Lawyers certainty of price and peace of mind knowing they will only be represented by highly experienced criminal defence lawyers in court.
With Mr Nedim, clients can rest assured of receiving the most thoroughly informed and authoritative representation whatever their particular criminal or traffic case.
