What our clients say about us
A big THANK YOU to Rebecca Black for helping us with our case. We were unsure where to start or how the legal process will be but with her guidance, she made us feel at ease – a lot of reassurance from her. She explained everything to us clearly, going through all the necessary information we need and helped us gather all the documents needed for the case. She guided us through what was otherwise unpleasant ordeal with a great deal of care and compassion. She was able to obtain the best possible outcome for the case (better than we expected) and we cannot thank her enough.
Legal Aid gave my case to Joseph. We met on the morning of hearing today and went through the evidence with me to get my side of things. He was very good in court at the hearing. We got all the charges dismissed. He was respectful to me even though i admit i was a pain in the ass all day. Joseph also represented my friend in the past and got him off his charges to. Best lawyer ive seen.
ThankU joseph for your hard work on my appeal for keeping me out of jail. You services was TOP and very good price. I recommend any one to use Joseph as their lawyer. He is very good at court.

I have no hesitation recommending Lauren and Bec from AC Law Group. They’re a great team and I wouldn’t have anyone else represent me.
The best thing about Australian Criminal Law Group is that they don't treat you like just another client - they genuinely care. Rebecca and Lauren are so lovely, A+++

While working with Steven, I felt as though my situation was in adept and trustworthy hands, and he steered me in the right direction.

Thank u Steven and AC Law group for a job well done and for getting a great result. Sachin
Thank you Steven for your excellent work and a good outcome. I am very impressed by your caring and consideration, you think everything for client and fight for their right. Thank you again.
I can but only give praise to Steven Mercael, when we met, he clearly explained my options without telling me what to do. I was clear of mind with regard my course of action, which matched Steven's view. We were organised with the right documents, that said I had concluded my fate, alas we won, and I walked out with a clean slate. At the end of the day you have to take responsibility for your mistakes, that said when you make them, it's good when someone can express to the court, that is was a mistake, and we are all human. Mike
Joe is one of the hardest working solicitors I’ve seen. Never stops. Keep it up for your clients, but stop for a coffee everyone and while brother. We need you.
