Success Stories and Publications
Our solicitor Sylvie Maranis represented a 22 year old man at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 9 September 2016 in relation to 2 charges of sexual assault.
The case involved 2 alleged incidents of sexual assault that occurred during a house party held by our client. After several hours of alcohol and drugs our client and the complainant began kissing. At a later date, the complainant made a police report that she had been sexually assaulted.
The maximum penalty for these offences is up to a maximum 10 years imprisonment on each charge.
Following lengthy negotiations with the Prosecution Sylvie argued that there was insufficient evidence for the Prosecution to sustain a conviction. We successfully persuaded the Prosecutor to have all charges being withdrawn.
Sylvie’s preparation and knowledge of the relevant evidence was enough to convince the Prosecution not to continue to pursue our client, which was an excellent result for our client, who had no criminal record and had never been before the court before.
This case illustrates the importance of quality representation and the value of a solicitor like Sylvie Maranis, who’s invaluable criminal law experience and ability to negotiate effectively with Prosecutions exposed several weaknesses in the Prosecution case and allowed our client to go back to his normal daily routine.

I want to commend Ms Slyvie Maranis for her professionalism, and knowledge when I consulted her today.
She was honest, upfront and is very perceptive not to mention also being a very beautiful young lady!
She was also very pleasant to talk to, understands all my issues and advised me based on the client's best interest.
Her charges were very moderate and unlike other lawyers who seeks to rip off their client.
I only wished I had met her for my previous cases and will definitely use her in future for our legal requirements.
I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a lawyer.
