Criminal Law Practice
Justice applies to all – the poor and the rich, the powerful and the man on the street. Here at OPTIMUS, the criminal law practice is no different. The team at Optimus understands that the stress, nervousness and anxiety of being accused of committing a criminal offence not only affects the individual, but also family members and loved ones alike.
It is with this in mind that the team listens without judging before advising on the best course of action to take. We will work with investigating officers from the police force and law enforcement agencies as well as prosecutors from the Attorney-General’s Chambers to ensure a fair outcome for anyone accused of a criminal offence. In court, we will represent the best interests of our clients and fight for what is right. In short, we go the distance for you.
In this regard, the criminal law team at Optimus is highly experienced. Together with the Managing Director Irving Choh who has more than 20 years of experience, the team is led by Nicholas Ngoh, a former Deputy Public Prosecutor with more than 10 years’ of prosecutorial experience. Optimus has defended clients in the State Courts, the High Courts as well as conducted criminal appeals in the Supreme Court. The wide spectrum of cases handled include offences attracting capital punishment, white collar crime, sexual offences, moneylending offences and property offences. Some of the high profile cases handled by Optimus more recently include - PP v Yang Yin; PP v Shi Ka Yee and PP v Koh Rong Guang.
The advice rendered by the criminal practice team considers all factors that any accused individual faces including the viability of success for claiming trial, the range and length of possible sentences, as well as the legal costs involved.
