What Others Say

I do what I do because I believe everyone deserves a fair chance. If I succeed in helping my clients, I’m happy. Still, it’s rewarding when people take the time to thank me. Here is just a small sample of the kind of responses I have received in the past.


Should a person find themselves facing a criminal conviction with very real and serious life changing consequences if convicted, there is one Lawyer who I recommend to call without hesitation.

Mr David Young-Criminal Defence Lawyer once contacted provided me with an immediate assessment of my position and further recommended course of action I should follow. All options and scenarios were explained to me in detail and the likely outcome of each.

I took Mr Young’s recommendation and followed the instructions to the letter, Mr Young further debated the case with the Judge at sentencing leading to a “Section 146 with no conviction”.

Mr Young – Thoroughly professional, calm, experienced voice of instruction when the client’s faced with extreme stress…..exactly what you need from a criminal defence lawyer.

Thank you David, forever indebted.
