Earlier today Majed (Jr) of our office appeared at Bankstown Local Court in a number of matters where Kheir Lawyers was able to obtain exceptional results for our clients. Majed first appeared in a matter where our client was charged with custody of a knife in public place. A plea of guilty was entered and extensive oral and written submissions were made in mitigation of our client's offending and highlighting that devestating impacts a conviction would have on our client's career. The Court ultimately imposed a conditional release order WITHOUT recording a conviction against our client. Majed then appeared in a matter where our client was charged with not exchanging particulars with another driver following a collision. Once again, thorough oral submissions were made to the court on the unique subjective circumstances of our client and the context of the offending. The Court moved to dismiss the matter without recording a conviction or penalty. Finally, Majed appeared in 2 bail applications for individuals arrested and held in custody overnight following a violent altercation at their family home with multiple injured parties. Both applications were successful following lengthy submissions on their unique subjective circumstances where both were carers of children and elderly parents who's families were reliant on them for care and support. Both our clients were released from custody to return home to their families and have entered please of not guilty with an intention to contest the charges and false allegations made by police.

Last week Majed Kheir (Jnr), assisted by Mahmud Hawila of counsel, appeared at Liverpool Local Court on behalf of a client charged with contravening an apprehended violence order pursuant to section 14 of the Crimes (Domestic and Personal Violence) Act 2007. In October 2020, an apprehended violence order was ordered by the court against our client following allegations that he had assaulted and threatened his wife. Our client consented to the Order on a 'without admissions' basis. Following an incident in February 2021, our client was arrested and charged with contravening that order. Our client was facing a maximum penalty of 2 years' imprisonment. Extensive sentencing submissions were made which included our client's good character, his early plea of guilty and the potential impact of a conviction on his employment as a bus driver which would effectively result in the termination of his employment and revocation of his licensing and qualifications. As a result of these submissions, the court directed that our client enter into a conditional release order WITHOUT conviction, effectively allowing him to continue his employment and with no record made on his criminal history from the offence. For all your criminal law enquiries, contact Majed Kheir (Jnr) on (02) 9790 2522 or mk@kheirlawyers.com.au for a free consultation. ... See MoreSee Less

Kheir Lawyers recently appeared at Campbelltown District Court in proceedings wherein our client was charged with a total of 9 offences relating to breaches of the Firearms Act 1996 including possession of unauthorised pistols, possession of ammunition and defacing a firearm. The charges arose after a raid by the NSW Police on our client's property revealed a cache of illicit weapons and ammunition. Our client was facing a maximum sentence upwards of 20 years imprisonment. Following a 5-day hearing wherein Kheir Lawyers was assisted by Mr Derek Drewett of counsel, the jury returned verdicts of not guilty to all 9 sequences. Extensive and complex legal arguments were raised in Defence of our client including issues relating to our client's knowledge of the weapons on his property, his exclusive possession of and access to the property (the Filipetti rule) and the identification of DNA samples of other individuals on the prohibited items. All charges have now been dismissed and our client's reputation as an upstanding and valuable member of his local community has been upheld. Ultimately, the matter resolved with a great result for our client who was overjoyed with the result. The outcome is one which reflects the diligence, dedication and passion that Kheir Lawyers applies to all of our clients' matters.
