Arguably Sydney’s best criminal lawyer. From the initial phone conversation, Joseph has maintained his empathetic & knowledgeable manner throughout my case.

He can also be easily contacted and responds to any queries promptly. All went smoothly according to his advice & guidance. I would highly recommend Joseph & his team without hesitation. Much appreciated,

Joseph is an incredible lawyer with great skill. His questions during cross-examination in Court amazed me.

All charges and the AVO were dismissed as a result, and I can’t begin to thank him enough. I recommend him for all your criminal matters.

Thank you so much Joseph

Joseph is a passionate genius. He is a true artist of his craft and also received completements from the judge as to how well written his submission was for us.

I have never felt in safer hands as he led us through to victory. Going above and beyond to make things right. He has an enormous presence in the courtroom and well respected by his peers. A very magnetic soul, we are forever grateful for your gifted natural talent Joseph.

If you’re looking for a great criminal lawyer, look no further. I’m 57 years old, and all through my life I have had numerous lawyers represent me and was always left disappointed with the results.

Joseph Nashed restored my faith. With only two weeks to prepare a case for my son who was in jail looking like doing some serious time, Joseph amazingly got the best result possible. Even the lawyer sitting next to me looked over with a surprised look on his face and said to me, ‘What a great result”. I then went straight from the courthouse to pick up my son from the correctional Centre.

From the bottom of my heart thank you so much for all your help Joseph
