O’Brien Solicitors, Sydney: Specialising in Criminal Law and Civil Actions

I have been passionately defending people for fifteen years. Everyone is entitled to a strong and respectful defence against criminal charges, which is why we have adopted a personalised approach that separates us from larger criminal law firms.

O’Brien Solicitors is a full-service criminal defence law firm which can defend you from criminal prosecution. In addition, we can assist you by fighting for financial compensation if you have been unlawfully arrested, assaulted by police, defamed or treated unfairly in other ways. We are also able to assist you in preparation for or in attending at Royal Commissions, at ICAC and other commissions of inquiry.

We are located in the heart of Sydney’s legal precinct, opposite the Downing Centre Courts and close to the Central Local Court.

Call us and come in for a free, no-obligation appointment to decide if we’re right for you. We look forward to working with you and fighting for your interests.
