The Law Society of NSW has recognised Chadi’s superior experience and expertise in Criminal Law by appointing him as an Accredited Specialist in that field. 

Chadi began his career in law, working for one of Sydney’s leading specialist Criminal and Traffic Law firms.

As a Senior Prosecutor at the DPP, Chadi worked on some of the state’s biggest cases involving drugs, robbery, sexual assault, weapons and more. Chadi is now one of the few lawyers in NSW practising with the knowledge of both the prosecution and the defence side of criminal law. This unique experience gives clients a big advantage in court as Chadi is able to predict the prosecutors next move.

After a great career with the prosecution, Chadi was invited to join the state’s largest Criminal Defence Law Organisations – Legal Aid NSW. As a Criminal Defence Lawyer, Chadi defended some of the state’s most disadvantaged clients and appeared at Court everyday in cases involving theft, fraud, domestic violence and assaults, property damage, supply or cultivate prohibited drugs, drink driving and much more.  

Chadi’s unique knowledge and enthusiasm, coupled with his great results have made him a highly sought after lawyer in the community. 

Before Chadi commenced his career in law, he worked as a Business Marketing Executive for two multi-million dollar companies. At those companies, Chadi formulated strategies which achieved unprecedented sales results.  

Chadi says “great results are achieved with great strategy”. Chadi now applies this approach in all his law cases. Chadi knows the law, the Magistrates, the Judges and the Prosecution. He makes strong arguments, submissions and formulates the best strategies for Court. He will thoroughly prepare each case and give honest and truthful advice, but most importantly, he will get the results!
