Case and Results: Possession of Stolen Property – Section 10 Dismissed Completely  

“I had a case that was very last minute (hearing was the following day). Mum and I decided to contact Powerhouse law and was recommended to Chadi. Chadi professionalism and talent shined through while dealing with my case. Despite everything being last minute and in such short notice, he was able to help me gather all documentation and provide me advice required for my case which lead to the best possible outcome for any person being convicted of a criminal offence. I felt that He genuinely wanted to help me the best that he could with the limited time we had to prepare and present my case to the court. I definitely would recommend to anyone. I am really thankful to have him to deal with my case. Thanks again Chadi 🙂

Case and Results: Speed over 30km/h – Licence Suspension Appeal Allowed

“Having just concluded a matter for which I had retained Mr. Oscar Chidiac , I feel as though I’d like to share my experience.…..From the beginning, Oscar was professional, efficient and exceedingly diligent. He appeared to me to be extremely knowledgeable about the legal issues and demonstrated excellent communication skills. At the same time he was also very supportive. Oscar is very well versed in law and I found him to be an honest and caring individual. He explained everything clearly with respect to my Traffic matter and at no time were any questions or concerns left unanswered. On numerous occasions Oscar accepted phone calls from me coupled with our consultations which were invaluable to the case. I was looking at a license suspension for 3 months for exceeding the speed limit by more than 30 km/h however the magistrate varied this penalty to 2 weeks. Thanks again Oscar. I am confident that I made the right decision having Oscar represent me and I sincerely recommend anyone seeking legal assistance consider Powerhouse Law.”

Case and Results: Assault (Domestic Violence) – Section 10 Dismissed Conditionally

“I want to thank Mr Chadi Irani for presenting my case in the best possible way. The Magistrate was very impressed when she said “this is how a plea should be done”. I could not believe it, he got me a Section 10 discharge which meant I would not have a criminal record against me. This was very important for me to travel overseas for my business and to earn a living.”

DP – Project Manager  

Case and Results: Damage Property $10,000 – Section 10 Dismissed Conditionally

“I went to another lawyer who worked for a big firm in the city and didn’t get the result I wanted. Then I saw Chadi who took on my case and did an appeal before the Judge at the district court. Chadi was honest and upfront and spent hours preparing the case with me and my family. On the day at court I was very nervous but Chadi was able to calm me down and help me understand what was happening. I was amazed with how he spoke to the Judge and persuaded him to give me a section 10. I couldn’t believe it and was so happy with the result.

I would strongly recommend Chadi to represent you in any legal matter.”

Case and Result: Sexual Assault – Jury Trial – Acquitted

“I had 9 charges of sexual assault against me. It was horrible allegations fabricated by my ex-partner and her daughter. Chadi Irani took my case and allocated a Barrister for me. He worked very hard and spent days preparing my case before the Jury in Sydney District Court. Chadi and the Barrister formed a very strong team and after 12 long days at the trial, we won the case. Chadi was very understanding, supportive and took the time to listen.

Thank you Chadi for helping me, I am forever grateful”.  

 

PK – Government Service Provider

Case and Result: Assault – Charges Dismissed

“I want to express my thanks to Chadi and the team at Powerhouse law. I was facing a serious charge of assault based on allegations by a witness who was clearly hostile towards me but who very cleverly presented a seamless account of my alleged crime. The prosecution were unremitting in their pursuit of a conviction. This is where the skill and dedication of Chadi came to the fore. Chadi very capablly and methodically cross examined the so called eye witness’s story, countered the prosecution’s arguments and showed the flaws in the story to the magistrate, leading to a finding of not guilty. I am very grateful to Chadi for turning it around and winning. The team at Powerhouse law helped me through the legal process, attending court and subpoenaing evidence, and gave me confidence due to their strong advocacy on my behalf. Thanks again Chadi and team”  

 

MG – Manager

Case and Results: Assault (Domestic Violence) and Damage Property – Section 10 Charges Dismissed Conditionally

“I pleaded not guilty and had no lawyer for my case but I saw Chadi win a hearing before in court so I approached him for his card. Chadi then happily defended me at my hearing against false charges which were made up by my ex-partner. Chadi prepared the case for me, he spent hours giving me legal advice and then appeared for me at the hearing with so much passion and strength that blew the prosecution away. He won the hearing and I was found not guilty! It was such a happy day for me!

I want to thank you Chadi for being there for me in this difficult time and for believing in me. I strongly recommend you to anyone who is in similar circumstances. Thank you”.

DM – Carpenter

Case and Result: Drink Driving / DUI  – Discharged Conditionally

“I did not have a good record and was about to lose my drivers license, my trade and my home. At the sentencing court, we had a very tough Magistrate and everyone that asked for a section 10 was refused and was forced to hand over their drivers licence. Chadi advised me of how he would help improve my case and at court he did a brilliant job for me. We got the section 10. I was very happy and kept my licence and my job which was the most important thing for me. Thank you Chadi.”

DK – Social Worker

Case and Result: Assault (DV) x 2 – District Court Appeal  – Discharged Conditionally

“I wish to express my gratitude to Chadi for winning my appeal at The Sydney Downing Center for common assault charges. I was the victim of a same sex domestic violence situation, stood up for my self to the abuser and suffered the consequences of my reactive behaviour. In the laws eyes, I was the criminal and bad person but I stood to appeal as a criminal record would have meant death row for me with my employment and my general well-being. I was given a section 10, no criminal record and no bond. Mr. Irani displayed high professionalism, empathy, understanding, comfort, tact and a winning attitude. I had a good feeling from the moment I met him that he would fight for me, and would not take no as a final answer in his approach on the stand in front of the Judge. I would recommend Mr. Irani to everyone and know that if I ever needed him he would get me the result I deserve!”

In your powerful hands, the complicated case, with 2 senior police officers as witnesses and a harsh judge, you led to a win! Great Job.”
