Criminal Defence
“I was a fugitive. I surrendered myself at Woodlands Checkpoint in Oct 2018 after an uneventful period of 10 years away from home. I had cases ranging from simple theft to cheating which was classified under the various sections of the penal code. The worst part was, I returned unprepared. While being remanded, I came to know about Legal Aid where lawyers represent you pro bono. I was then assigned to this big young man, Siraj. My first impression of him was like, “Can this guy really handle my cases?” Everything changed when he started talking. I have had some experience with lawyers, who generally speak in “legal code” which makes it difficult to understand the full picture. As for Siraj, he was crystal clear on every phase of the case, without intimidating me. I was able to ask many questions and attain all the information I needed to make the decision to move forward. I find it comforting to be represented by someone who is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. From the beginning to the end, I felt confident in my legal representation and was highly satisfied with the service he provided. I was immediately impressed by his respectfulness, transparency, and legitimate interest. Throughout the proceedings, Siraj took the time to understand my cases and promptly developed an effective and impressive mitigation that led my sentence to be reduced. Frankly, I never did expect him to speak so eloquently. He was fantastic. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to convey my greatest thanks and appreciation to Siraj for his professionalism and dedication throughout the period of my proceedings. I am very grateful, and I have no hesitation to highly recommend him for any legal matters. He is the next rising star in the legal realm.”
