Can’t recommend executive law group enough!!! Used them previously to represent me at court... spoke with Jahan who was very kind, helpful and very knowledgeable, he took the time to explain everything to me and what my options where and what different outcomes I could expect and of course he helped me to get the best outcome possible. Then Just recently I called up Jahan to have a quick chat about a situation I’m dealing with and asked him for some legal advice in which he explained in depth to me how I should go about dealing with the matter and gave me some really good advice and did not charge for his time which was very kind as in the past I have had other law firms charge me just to have a 5 minute phone call with them. Always great to deal with executive law group and will always be using them for all my legal matters to come.read more

How We Fight For Your Best Possible Outcome

When you are facing the power of the state, you need aggressive representation

Every case is unique and that means thinking strategically about what makes sense in your matter. We understand the legal landscape and the importance of making sure that you know about all of your options. We push the pace by putting together winning arguments more quickly than a traditional law firm. We use technology, our internal database of successful strategies and a detailed understanding of specific areas of the law.
We understand the law and are intimately familiar with the way it operates. This means that we go beyond simply accepting whether something is or is not lawful and instead we dig in, ask questions and make sure that you are receiving the best advice possible. This goes to questions such as whether your arrest was legitimate. If procedures were violated or mistakes were made. If they were, we will uncover them and we will fight to ensure those issues are addressed.
The law of evidence is arguably the most complex area in the entire legal profession. It is so important that we went the extra step and our obsessive managing partner literally taught the course at University and insisted that the entire team be across the evidentiary landscape. Our lawyers are experts at understanding evidence, having it set aside and making sure that the appropriate relevant materials are before the Court. If you understand evidence, you can understand how to argue your case.
Our lawyers understand how important the fundamental protections that underpin the legal system are. They understand how disempowering it can be when an official steps over the line and how important it is to act as a reasonable check to that power. Accordingly, our firm will ensure that your rights are respected and protected.
Our lawyers are great, but they can’t do it all on their own. Expert testimony has a strong influence on criminal proceedings. We will enlist the aid of specialists like psychologists, private investigators, toxicologists and forensic scientists to build your criminal defence case. We ensure that the right information is explored.
Our firm adopts an attitude of respectful, but firm advocacy. Simply put, we don’t let anyone bully us or our clients. We ensure that your case is heard, that arguments are put and that we are able to properly challenge and fight back against the other side. Our approach is that we will make sure that whatever happens to you is fair and that means that we don’t let the other side admit verbal statements, witness testimony or physical evidence without appropriate opposition.

Yes, we represent clients throughout Sydney and handle cases in various courts across NSW. Our firm prides itself on its reach and the different courts we service.

How does the criminal justice process work in NSW, from arrest to trial?

At a very high level, the process can involve police investigation, charges, bail hearings, pre-trial procedures, and the trial itself. Our experienced lawyers will guide you through each step as is relevant to your situation. Each of these areas is extremely complex and we can walk you through how they work in consultation.

What are my rights when dealing with NSW police or being taken into custody?

You have the right to remain silent, the right to legal representation, and the right to fair treatment. Please note that often a mistake or misunderstanding made at this stage can have enormous consequences. Contact us immediately to ensure your rights are protected.

Our team can assist you in applying for bail, arguing for fair bail conditions, and representing you in bail hearings to increase the likelihood of a favourable outcome. Bail is a process where you need to make sure that you are strategic in your approach as a bad bail outcome can result in substantial time in custody until your matter is determined.

What should I bring to my initial consultation with a criminal lawyer?

Bring any documents related to your case, including charge sheets, court notices, and any correspondence with the police. This will help us understand your situation better. We also invite you to bring a support person or someone that might be able to assist you as you go through this matter.

The cost varies depending on the complexity of your case. During your free case assessment, we will provide a clear estimate of the legal fees involved and discuss payment options. An initial consultation can be organised either in person, videolink or phone calls.

Understanding Your Free Case Assessment

Should I have documents ready for my Free Case Assessment?

It is helpful for you to have easy access to any documents related to your case, like charge sheets, court notices, police reports, and any communication with the police. However, we normally review these in detail after becoming your legal representation so they aren’t needed for your first conversation with us.

What information should I prepare before the meeting?

It is helpful if you have written down a detailed account of what happened, including dates, times, locations, and any witnesses or evidence you have. If you have a court attendance notice, bail notice, any documentation; that would help.

Can I bring someone with me to the consultation?

Yes, you can bring a friend or family member for support, but remember that attorney-client privilege only applies to you and your lawyer.

How should I describe my case to the lawyer?

Be honest and detailed. Share a clear account of what happened, including any background info and potential witnesses.

What if I have already spoken to the police?

Let your lawyer know about any interactions with the police, including statements made and documents signed. This info is crucial for your defence.
