Case Reports Majed Kheir Jr appeared at Bankstown Local Court in a number of matters in the past week, obtaining exceptional outcomes for our clients. Last week, Kheir Lawyers appeared at Bankstown Local Court on behalf of a young lady charged with two domestic-violence related offences of assault and intimidation involving death threats. Majed Kheir Jr appeared and made an application pursuant to section 14 of the Mental Health and Cognitive Impairment Forensic Provisions Act seeking an order to divert the Accused away from the criminal justice system and towards mental health rehabilitation. Extensive submissions were raised which detailed the abuse and violence suffered by the Accused herself which ultimately have rise to significant mental health impairments. The application was granted, thereby preventing the Accused from ending up with a criminal conviction which would have prevented her from continuing her career in early childhood education. Kheir Lawyers also appeared in a matter where a man was charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm and was served with an AVO which prevented him from having contact with his wife and 7 children. Despite expert evidence and multiple eye-witness accounts indicating that the Defendant was innocent of the allegations made against him, Police chose to proceed with the prosecution anyway. After representations were sent by Majed Kheir Jr highlighting the overwhelming evidence against the Prosecution, Police agreed to withdraw the charge and the AVO thus allowing our client to finally reunite with his family after 9 months of separation. Kheir Lawyers extends its gratitude to Mr Talal Krayem of counsel for his assistance in the matter. These results reflect the passion and empathy that underlines our solicitors approach to each and every matter. Kheir Lawyers is proud to service a community with diverse and unique needs and in doing so, obtain the best possible result every time.

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. For all your criminal law enquiries including bail issues, contact Majed (Jr) now on (02) 9790 2522 or mk@kheirlawyers.com.au for a free consultation ... See MoreSee Less

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
