Walter Silvester was recommended to me by a trusted friend. I approached Walter for advice regarding a business deal for takeover. I was impressed at the way he listened attentively and paid attention to details while looking through the documents. His explanation was simple yet effective and practical. I would highly recommend Walter’s expertise to my friends.

Kishori Chaudhari,

Get to know Walter via the Singapore Legal Advice website whereby he is the first to response to my enquiries. He is also very accommodating in allocating time to meet me on the same day. He had provided valuable advise and definitely helped me to view the issue from another perspective. Walter is very professional and definitely experienced as well as knowledgeable in the law of civil litigation. Highly recommended.

When we were faced with a potential litigation, I approached Walter. He advised us of our position thoroughly. His recommended course of action had precisely the result that we wished for. An excellent lawyer who solves your problems and gives you peace of mind.

Koh Stanley,

I am very fortunate to have found Mr Walter Silvester after a hassle month of looking for suitable lawyer to assist on the terms and conditions of our newly established website http://www.sportsntrain.com.
Walter listened to our requests and expectations too.
He gave us valuable feedback and input for our consideration and was able to complete the phases of terms & conditions in less than a month.
He also communicated with us after office hours and make changes prior to the launch of the website.
Great work for Walter and his team to be working with consistency and highly recommended his services for your future legal advise.

If you are looking for someone who gets the job done, I would recommend Silvester Legal LLC without hesitation.

Being charged was a shock. I called Walter and he and his team immediately began work on my case. He was on my side throughout the ordeal. I am glad that it is finally over. I thank Walter and all at Silvester Legal LLC for all the help and support throughout my case.

WJ,

Walter was kind to respond and to accomodate my late request for an appointment. We met on last Tuesday, 26th March 2019. Walter is a very good listener and understood my dilemma with the issues of my failed company and the shareholder involved who was threatening me in several ways. He gave me some sound advice and calmed me down with assurance that I need not worry and that he would be able to handle my case confidently. I would recommend Silvester Legal LLC to anyone who requires assistance in commercial legal needs. It is truly hard to find a lawyer who shows empathy and leaves you with assured confidence of a good amicable outcome.

I found much comfort engaging Walter’s thoughts and advice.
He presented a friendly and candid disposition with commendable patience. Those, paired with his ability to promptly pare out scenarios for my consideration, made the overall experience pleasant and effective for me.

Jeremy,

Am fortunate to have randomly chanced on Walter’s legal services last August. Walter responded to my need of appointment at a short notice, knowing I was anxious about a demand letter on a domestic maid issue. He was not only kind in listening – Walter was quick and determined to find resolve in my case and gave me sound advice on the next steps. In that moment of uncertainty, I would never have expected to find a lawyer with such an open and good heart; Walter has allowed me the peace of mind and assurance to move along my normal daily duties to a final closure early 2019. I will definitely recommend Walter to anyone.

The very next day, 8 September, the defamatory post was taken down. Extremely effective. I would strongly recommend Silvester Legal LLC.

BL (Commercial Law client)
14 August 2018

BL,

“I run a company and over the last few years, have had some commercial disputes. Since engaging Walter’s services, I am more confident when conducting business. His advice is practical and effective. You need a good lawyer when conducting business and Walter definitely is very good.”

ZW, Commercial Litigation and Disputes Client, May 2018

ZW,

“My divorce was threatening to be messy and expensive. Walter advised me on what I should ask for an ensured that the terms of the divorce were fair on me. I am very happy with the division of matrimonial assets that I received. Walter is experienced in this area. You can be confident when you engage him.”

(MT, Divorce client, July 2018)

MT,

“When my expat husband wanted to divorce me, I was naturally lost. It was a horrible time. Luckily, a friend asked me to call Walter. He did his very best and managed to have the matter resolved amicably, at the same time ensuring that my son and I were awarded very reasonable maintenance.

Very experienced and compassionate!”

(LD, Divorce client, June 2018)

LD,

Walter acted for me in a consent divorce. He kept matters as simple and painless as possible. He took the trouble to ensure that I understood what was happening at every juncture. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a good family lawyer.

(HY, Divorce client, April 2018)

HY,

When I had a disagreement with my business partner, I approached Walter for advise. The matter was litigated in the High Court and even though I was not the aggressor, Walter secured a 6-figure payment to me. I was quite stunned as I was initially worried that I would be the one who would have to make payment!

Walter is a top commercial litigator and I would recommend him to anyone.”

PD,

“My company had a complicated and potentially sensitive matter with an ex-employee which was threatening to cause serious damage to the Company’s reputation. Walter handled the matter expertly and within months, had applied successfully for summary judgment against the ex-employee. The Order we received from the High Court Judge ensured that there was no further harm to the Company. We also won costs. Walter is a very good commercial litigation lawyer. We will be using him again for any company matter.

(Commercial Litigation client, 2017)”

AC,

“Walter was recommended when I was contemplating divorce. Walter advised me on the various options available and also recommended counselling as there were children involved. He in fact encouraged counselling. I am happy to say that counselling helped and I remain married and happily so. He is not just a good lawyer. He also gives his perspective as a father and a friend and I value that.
(Divorce client, 2016)”

AN,

“I work for a listed company and needed to have an international agreement for services finalised urgently. Walter was recommended. Hearing of the urgency of the matter he came to my office the next day and we had a discussion. Walter took the trouble to understand exactly what we required in the agreement. Everything went according to schedule. I will use him again for further legal work and would recommend him to anyone looking for such expertise.”
(Director, Corporate Client, 2017)

WP,

“My divorce was messy and bitter. Walter’s level headed approach was greatly appreciated. He won the orders that I was looking for and avoided escalating the matter of making it costly of more complicated than it should be. Not all lawyers are sharks. Some are genuinely nice and Walter is one of them. If you want to avoid drama and at the same time get the orders that are important to you, I would recommend you engage Walter. (Divorce client, 2011)”

ACG,

“My divorce is a distant memory and I am happily remarried with children. I would recommend Walter not only for his good work but his understanding shown to the stress that I was facing at the time, including a PPO order.” (Divorce client, 2014)

CG,

“The charges included a likely custodial sentence. Walter vowed to do his level best to remove any possibility of me going to jail. Over the course of the next 9 months, Walter spoke with the prosecution, wrote to them and reviewed the evidence at the investigating officer’s office. Once this was done, he wrote representations to the AGC. When the Judge expressed reservations, Walter dealt with this. Finally, it was only when I was assured that no custodial sentence would be imposed, did Walter agree to have me plead guilty to the charges. Walter is persistent and will fight for his clients. I am grateful that he never gave up trying his best for me.

GF, Charges under the Road Traffic Act, March 2018″

GF,

“When I decided to proceed with divorce, I approached Walter on a recommendation. The divorce was as painless as it could be and I am extremely grateful to Walter for that.

(LSW, Divorce client, 2016)”

LSW,

“Walter was recommended when I decided to switch lawyers in the middle of a complicated and costly divorce. My previous lawyer was from one of the famous divorce practices in Singapore but I felt that I was not receiving the level of service my case demanded. Walter took over and had the matter concluded within months. I received the orders I applied for and have care and control of my child, which was the most important thing to me. Walter is a very good divorce lawyer and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

(SY, Divorce client, 2015)”

SY,

“I have been using Walter for my commercial matters for some years now. He does an excellent work with agreements and is also well versed in disputes.

(JT, Commercial and litigation client, 2016)”

JT,

“I was charged with theft under Section 379 of the Penal Code sometime earlier this year. A friend recommended Silvester Legal LLC. Walter evaluated my case and on being told that I had an antecedent charge for the same offence, told me that the benchmark was a short custodial sentence. He said that he would work to have the prosecution agree to not ask for a custodial sentence. After some exchange of correspondence, the prosecution agreed that they would not seek a custodial sentence.

Even at the sentencing, the District Judge said that under such circumstances, the prosecution would normally seek a custodial sentence. Thankfully, she agreed with the prosecution’s recommendation on sentence and instead of sending me to jail, imposed a fine. Barely 2 months after seeing Walter for the first time, I walked out of the courtroom, a free man.

I am extremely grateful to Walter for what he has done for me. Somehow, he managed to get the prosecution to agree to not seek a custodial sentence. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a good criminal defence lawyer.

I’m eternally grateful to Mr Mato Kotwani & his colleagues at I.R.B. Law LLP, for helping me to close an unhappy chapter in my life.

Mr Mato agreed to meet me at short notice and offered me the most professional & sound advice I could ask for, & more. Coupled with his calm & analytical demeanour, he was a pillar of strength, during a time of emotional distress & tension. Not only did he have to overcome time constraints, he was able to negotiate the foreign language barrier, in evidence & with the opposite party, with finesse. I felt very reassured that I was in good hands – he asked all the right questions & took into account my desired outcome while trying to protect my interests. He saw the bigger picture when I could not. Eventually, he helped me reach a resolution with the opposite party in just over an hour.

I’m extremely impressed by Mr Mato’s fortitude & will strongly recommend his services to anyone seeking legal advice. I will seek his aid, if I ever need legal counsel again in future. I wish to add that Mr Mato’s rates are very transparent & reasonable.

Once again, my sincerest thanks to Mr Mato & his colleagues!

Gary,

I am forever grateful that Mr Mato Handled my case. I was proud to have him as my lawyer. I felt comforted by his portrayal of experience and knowledge. Throughout the court proceedings, Mr. Mato spent his evening hours preparing for the next day. He was protective, well prepared, thorough, convincing, and always accurate.

Mr. Mato did everything he promised and more. He comforted me when I was worried, and fought hard for me. My sincere appreciation for him.

Regards,
Rijuvan

Rijuvan,

I was worried, didnt know what to do when I first found out that I had gotten entangled in a commercial suit. It was between my ex-employers and their business partners.

I got to know Mato thru friend’s friend. He is my first lawyer and his calm and assuring disposition helped me to focus on what is the right thing to do. There were a lot of things to do – writing down narratives, putting together documents which Mato patiently explained and facilitated. It was not easy for me, and if it had not been for Mato, I might still be stuck.

I shared with Mato that he had been my great pillar of peace and assurance. And that I am grateful for all his help and support.

Mato is competent lawyer, knows the legal things well. And, Mato also take care of the soft side of things well too – I didn’t feel judged.

Grateful,

I want to extend my sincere gratitude to Mr Mato from IRB Law LLP for handling my debt recovery case until it was settled in my favour. Being a first timer in seeking legal advises, Mr. Mato have done extremely well to explain in details the processes, proceedings involved and the variable course of action that I can take. Constant updates were given even when I was away on oversea trip. Due to a small amount money involved ($5K) , I was minimumly charged with the same professional services provided. I would strongly recommended him & his firm to everyone seeking legal guidance & engage their service. Thank you so much Mr Mato & IRB.

I had sought out IRB’s law firm to recover my deposit, equivalent to 2 months lease, from a Corporate Owner whose rental unit is located in Vibes @ East Coast represented by a licensed agent. After my many attempts, took me more than 2 weeks in total, communicating with the agent and being promised that my money will be refunded, I decided to take legal actions. Jeremy assisted me and during our initial meeting, he presented all my options and draw out a plan, a practical and feasible one, that we will follow in each step of the case. His team was very efficient and professional and I was able to recover my money at the very first step.

R Legaspi,

I engaged Jeremy to assist in recovering my deposit from a contractor who did a very bad job for my house renovation. Although it was not a lot of money Jeremy and his team were very professional and worked very carefully on my court case. Fortunately I was able to get back my money, and thanks to Jeremy and his team.

Jared Fong,

We are a Singapore construction company who had some dispute with some of our subcontractors. We were happy that Jeremy is extremely familiar with the construction industry and was able to understand all the technical issues easily. This made it very easy for us to explain our problems. Jeremy proposed useful solutions to resolve the matter quickly and preserve the existing business relationship with our subcontractors. The fees were also extremely reasonable. We are very satisfied with IRB’s service.

Stanley Soh,

Jeremy was recommended to me by a business associate. I needed help with my dad’s estate as he passed on without a will. Jeremy was able to offer valuable advice and was prompt in answering my family’s queries. He and his team were able to process my dad’s letter of administration within 5 weeks! Thanks once again to Jeremy and his team for their professional and efficient services!

Tracy is very helpful and approachable. She is very patient in explaining the procedures despite me repeatingly asking the same question. She’s always contactable and will try her best to reply via whatsapp or calls as soon as possible. I’m very grateful to Tracy in helping me to fight for my rights and settling the case. I would highly recommend Tracy to anyone who needs any legal advice. Thanks Tracy!

Jac,

Tracy is friendly and approachable. She is very patient in answering all the queries we had. She is also very fluent in her mandarin which makes my mum very comfortable talking to her and understanding the different details.

Jennifer,

Tracy is the most ethical lawyer I’ve connected with & I’ve hired a few to manage my financial settlement with my former spouse involving Singaporean & Australian family law. I was at a pivotal moment in my proceedings and had to make one of the most significant decisions in my life when I called Tracy. She was calm, collected and had the emotional intelligence to understand I was in a do-or-die situation and she gave me the best possible legal advise. Her decision allowed me to resolve a long standing matter and also helped me gain settlement with my former spouse in the most amicable way. Had it not been for Tracy’s accurate, straight forward & helpful legal advise, I would’ve incurred large financial losses. I am obviously very grateful to Tracy for everything she’s done in my family matter & I endorse her wholeheartedly for trusted legal advise. A lot of lawyers are motivated by financial benefits, however Tracy is one of a very few who practise law to help those in need. Most Judges who were once lawyers were motivated by a sense of justice and right, and Tracy in my calculation has those traits. She will go very far in her career and will be a boon to any client who engages her. Thank you Tracy.

James,

Thank you Tracy… She is a lawyer with a good heart who will be there for you when you need her. My case was an urgent case and she really put in her time and effort with her staff to listen and answer to my queries promptly and get my problem solved. Thanks again, Tracy and your staff.

MiQq,

Despite an ongoing case and her hectic schedule, she will take time to meetup and explain your options, and even courteously advise you even against yourself if need be. She and her team genuinely shows care for her clients and promptly assist them about queires and matter promptly.

Dennis Fortich,

Tracy had been helpful in handling my case. She was patient and considerate. I was really thankful for her advice in getting the case settled in the most amicable and straightforward manner.

Miss A,

I cannot thank Tracy more for her kind help. I was in a very anxious status when I approached to Tracy. Tracy does not only provided me the most professional knowledge that would both help me to protect myself and fight for my rights, but also gave me confidence in dealing with the issue by her friendly character. She is very professional and knows my needs very well when I firstly meet her. She treated me like a friend more than a lawyer. She is my role model as well! I definitely recommend Tracy to other people who are in need. You will never regret to approach to her!

Jenny HUANG,

Very patient . Explain everything in details and answered all my enquiries . Thanks 🙂

Alvin Lim,

Tracy was assigned to my case in the middle of the proceeding. She got up to speed within 2 days and were even contactable over the weekend which I never expected at all. She engaged in all discussions very objectively; shared her thoughts and advises sincerely, and executed her service professionally. She has a calm and cheerful demeanour that made the whole mediation process a lot easier and comfortable for us. Unlike other lawyers, she genuinely connects at the personal level, taking interests in the case, execute in the spirit of fair and just. My experience of her representing me was like having an honest friend, a trusting family member by the side, assuring and grounded. I wish Tracy to continue upholding the integrity of the work and be the fresh breeze of air shaping the spirit of this trade in the new millennium. I will recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.

Joel,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy for her professionalism in handle my husband’s case. She has showed empathy and expertise towards my case, no words could ever thank her enough. It was a hellish two weeks for me ever since my husband received the Letter Of Demand. Apart from her professionalism, she also charges reasonably. One of the more reasonable quotes that I had received. I would like to recommend Tracy to anyone who wishes to seek for legal advise. She’s truly my saviour! My heartfelt,thank you from the bottom of my heart! THANK YOU AND SENDING YOU LOTS OF LOVE!

Many thanks to Mr Gino for taking the time to analyse my case and write a very good representation for me. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Mr Gino for all the care and concern Mr Gino has shown me, and for working tirelessly to ensure that outcome is in my favour.
Gino was able to resolve my case within a few months. He was always available if I had any questions, and responded quickly to any messages I sent.
He was very professional at all times and demonstrated he had a lot of experience. I made the right choice by hiring Gino and I recommend him to anyone facing issues with the law. I would certainly hire him again.
Thanks once again for your legal advice, time, and efforts. I am so grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism.

F,

I used Gino to help me with an issue surrounding a police warning in Singapore. He was extremely professional and helped me enormously. He also turns things around in no time. Would definitely recommend Gino.

SAL,

Got me off with a warning through representations drafted by him & for that I am very thankful.
Much thanks to Mr Gino.

LL,

Last March 5, 2019, my helper of almost 6yrs accused me of hitting her on the arm in one instance last January of this year. This is after she got involved in different loan sharks last December 2018 and after I told her that I will be sending her back home. Though my conscience is clear, the long wait and the way the case was treated caused me and my family so much stress. My helper was treated like a victim and I felt like I am some sort of a criminal for doing something I didn’t do. I have all the evidences proving my innocence (including medical report because I even brought her to her 6 monthly checkup 4 days after the said incident), but that was not enough for them to dismiss the case. I was expecting the case to be dismissed 3 months after the complaint but that didn’t happen. This is when it started to occur to me how serious the situation I was in. My parents got so worried that my dad was sent to the hospital due to so much stress and due to his existing medical condition. Thankfully, I came across Mr. Gino. I started sending emails to different sites and Mr. Gino was the first one to respond. I met with him and I remember sobbing in tears as I told him everything that I can recall of what happened. He is fierce, and I like that about him. When I got there, I was feeling so depressed, I was so mad, and I was very confused. After my conversation with him, I felt so relieved and I knew I need him to represent me. Though the service doesn’t come cheap, I can say it is worth every penny. Mr. Gino and his colleague Mr. Pravin wrote my representation letter and after almost a month or waiting, sir Gino called me and broke the good news. Case was not dismissed but instead, I was given a stern warning. If I have not engaged Mr. Gino, I probably would still be having sleepless night thinking about the case. Getting his service is probably one of the best decisions I have ever made.

If anyone asks me for a good criminal lawyer, without a doubt, I will refer them to sir Gino. Thank you so much sir!

SRR,

Human Life is full of waves and nodes. All humans undergo ups and downs in life. I too faced a most difficult situation when a close family friend went against me to lodge a police complaint on a trivial matter and with false allegations. During this difficult time, I met with Gino Hardial Singh and after the first meeting itself I had the innermost feeling that I am now in safe hands. Gino not only gave me the perfect professional advice but also handled my case so well that within few weeks the matter was solved. The best quality I saw in Gino is that after understanding the case details, he takes full control and gives his clients the comfort of being handled by him with full responsibility and accountability.
Gino and I have become very close family friends. In my view Gino is God sent man who provides everyone with the comfort of being served by highest class professional. He is a true Gem.

RMM,

Trillion thanks to Mr Gino for his professional help with my both my NEA cases that got me acquitted, for many one of you may be thinking being charged by NEA is such a minor case (just pay the fine) but for me that’s not a matter of a fine but to fight for my rights and to prove my innocence, my story goes like this…on 17th Dec 2018 there was one day after coming back from work I parked my vehicle into a parking lot and I realised the car next to me was parking out of his lot and I had difficulty getting out from my vehicle but to squeezed out and to my anger I wrote a note and pasted on his windscreen reminding him to park properly but his car alarm rang and I stood beside it and waited for the owner to appear and after 5 mins a young chap ran down from his residence and we have a quarrel over it and he called the police and when the police came and took both statements he went off and so did I, somewhere around mid of Feb 2019 I received NEA letter stated on 2nd of Jan 2019 I threw a piece of paper onto the carpark and was asked to go for an investigation at NEA regional office at Sin Ming road, during investigation at NEA I was told somebody reported to NEA with evidence (photo/video) that I threw paper on the floor which I denied and NEA went ahead to charge me to court which the mention date was in October and then somewhere in May 2019 I received 2nd letter from NEA again stating March 2019 i was again threw a piece of paper onto the carpark and was summoned again to NEA which made me pissed off and NEA again proceed to charge me and the court mention date was in March 2019 (suspected the car owner was the one who bear grudges and reported me) , somehow or rather I told myself its time for me to search for a lawyer to represent me in court and after days of searching I came across Mr Gino profile at Singapore legal advice website and saw positive comments about him and I decided to asked his advice and met up with him at his office which I decided to engage him to represent me, guess what guys…Mr Gino and his assistant Ms Debbie got me acquitted on both charges after many months. Finally I was so relieved after acquitted and this proved my innocence with the excellent help from Mr Gino and Ms Debbie, hereby I will like to tell everybody who has any criminal proceeding please look for Mr Gino. Last of all and once again I will like to say a very big thank you to you Mr Gino and Ms Debbie for your excellent service.

Allan Tan KC,

Many thanks to Mr Gino for taking the time to analyse my case and write a very good representation for me. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Mr Gino for all the care and concern Mr Gino has shown me, and for working tirelessly to ensure that outcome is in my favour. If it weren’t for Mr Gino’s analytical skills and knowledge, my case wouldn’t have been settled so successfully. Thanks once again for your legal advice, time, and efforts. I am so grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism.

Rick Wu,

I was arrested on early April for MDA 8b and released on the same day under personal bond. On the next day 4th April, I randomly searched for legal helps online, spoken to one or two lawyers on phone, and finally decided to meet Gino to discuss my case. From the very first meeting, Gino has been very professional, confident, and analyse my case in a comprehensive, in-depth perspective. He has then prepared me a letter of representation and sent over to the enforcement and AGC in less than a week. During the letter preparation, Gino also patiently listened to my inputs/comments on the letter to put my case in best position. After 2 months sending out the letter, Gino called me and break the good news to me that there is no charge against me and I am only given a warning. I would like to thank Gino for the support and help throughout the toughest time of my life. I will turn over a new leaf and cherish all the good things I have in life.

DRL,

Many thanks to Mr Gino for taking the time to analyse my case and write a very good representation for me. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Mr Gino for all the care and concern Mr Gino has shown me, and for working tirelessly to ensure that outcome is in my favour. If it weren’t for Mr Gino’s analytical skills and knowledge, my case wouldn’t have been settled so successfully. Thanks once again for your legal advice, time, and efforts. I am so grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism. Mr Gino is absolutely the right lawyer to engage when facing allegations!

Wu,

The first months of 2019 were the worst of my life. The police investigated me for an “outrage of modesty” claim made by a lady against me (she was entitled to after what I did to her). I had my passport taken. I contacted Gino, who was very frank, calm, empathetic, and told me what my chances were (he said we should act fast). He went to the scene to find out what had happened and then helped me prepare my representations to send to the AGC. Gino and his staff managed to get me off the hook with a warning instead of being charged and facing potential jail time. He was very professional at all times and demonstrated he had a lot of experience. I made the right choice by hiring Gino and I recommend him to anyone facing issues with the law. I would certainly hire him again. Thanks Gino for your great work! O.C.

OC,

Through the few most worrisome months of my life, Mr Gino has given me professional legal advice and guidance. His experience and confidence is truly inspiring. On top of his professionalism, Mr Gino shows genuine concern and this personal touch was really what made the difference. He was sincere, understanding and empathetic of my situation and went out of his way to help me.
Early in the investigation stage, Mr Gino sent out a letter of representation to the AGC and reassured me not to worry to much. Eventually, the AGC issued a letter indicating that they would direct the police to take no further action against me before the case went any further. I could not be any more thankful for all that Gino has done for me during this very difficult and trying time. I highly recommend Gino and thank him once again for everything he has done.

JW,

I was arrested, released on bail and subsequently underwent investigation for a charge of Carrying Offensive Weapons in Public Places under the Corrosive and Explosives Substances and Offensive Weapons Act.

The act which got me into trouble was rash but seemingly trivial. Nevertheless, due to the seriousness of the potential charge, decided to seek legal representation shortly under the advice of my friends.

Before Gino responded to my enquiry, I contacted some other lawyers and while the possible options for me at that point in time were clearly presented, did not convey the same kind of confidence and decisiveness as him. My wife and I were in Gino’s office the same evening I contacted him and he advised that my best option was to write a letter of representation to AGC so that I do not get charged in court. Gino is straight talking and yet assuring at the same time. After the meeting, we were finally able to breathe easier and in his words, “go live your lives”.

Upon engaging him, he provided clear instructions for me to carry out leading up to the letter of representation. Throughout the entire ordeal, both himself and his assistant were very responsive and prompt with both the submission of the letter of representation as well as my requests to travel.

After 6 weeks from the submission of the letter of representation, it was Gino who broke the favourable news from AGC that I was going to be let off with a warning.

Thank you.

Robin,

My husband and i had face some allegations against us by our domestic helper. As we needed legal advice we looked for a lawyer to assist us. During our search on the internet we came across Mr Gino. We contacted him and he immediately made an appointment for us to meet him the very next day. During our initial meeting Mr Gino listen to our concerns and assured us that he will assist us in every way possible. He motivated us to stay positive and not to worry about the case. It was indeed a stressful period for me and my family. The case went on for more than 6 months. But during this period Mr Gino always motivated us. He always briefed us the moment he had any updates on the case. He was also very accommodating to our calls and messages despite the late hours at times. Finally the AGC updated that they will not be pursuing the case any further. It was indeed a relief for us. I am indeed very grateful to Mr Gino for his assistance. I would say that he was very much a friend to us. Very polite and assuring in nature. Thank you Mr Gino.

Sumathi,

I got to know Mr Gino through sg legal advice web page. I and my wife needed some legal advice with regards to a police case involving our domestic against us. The moment i contacted Mr Gino, he made an immediate appointment to meet him up after office hours. Mr Gino was very assuring during our first meeting. He kept assuring us that all will be well. He wrote representations to the AGC for us. Though the case went on for more than 6 months , Mr Gino always kept updating us. He was always accommodating to our queries regardless of the time we called or messaged him. He kept motivating us to carry on with our lives and to put our worries aside. All ended up well as how Mr Gino assured us. I cannot find words to express my gratitude for Mr Gino. He had done a great deal for us. A very simple and down to earth guy. I found it so easy communicating with him. Thank you Mr Gino.

Charles Edwin,

The MIKE TYSON of lawyers! If you are looking for the best Singapore Lawyer, look no further than sir Gino. He has managed to fix my legal tussle within just 40 days! Sir Gino is very efficient, sharp and most of all very friendly. Talking to him is like talking to a friend. Thank You sir Gino for a job well done!!!

Raymund,

Without this person, I don’t know what my family would have done, it’s not for the money – it’s for the love of people and helping them. I don’t think I’ve met someone so willing to help people in my life until I came across this fantastic lawyer and if you are looking around for someone to help – stop looking and choose this one. I promise you, you won’t be disappointed with the results. The support help and love this person is full of is enlightening.

Alannah,

Gino is extremely wise and capable of viewing in certain perception that not many can see. His service has helped me resolve all issues that i would probably have a hard time dealing with. Thank you Gino.

Jacky,

Gino was able to resolve my case within a few months. He was always available if I had any questions, and responded quickly to any messages I sent. Due to the nature of the false accusation lodged against me, it was quite a struggle to maintain my livelihood in Singapore–Gino was there. Consistently professional and informative, Gino did excellent work and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance.

JD,

My husband got on the wrong side of the law 3mths ago. A close friend suggested we speak to Mr Gino Singh. A quick search and I doubt he will take up our minor case. To our surprise, someone like him who deals with capital and high profile cases is willing to handle my husband’s case at a very reasonable fee. He advised us professionally and ethically. He always make time for us to keep us in the loop and updated. My husband was so down when this case got him. Luckily we had seeked Mr Gino Singh. He helped us lifted the burden and focus on our family and get on. We are indebted to him for getting my husband a surprise result for the case. Our family is so much closer and tight knitted if not for Mr Singh. I won’t hesitate to recommend him to any of my friends and loved ones. Our sincere appreciation to Mr Gino Singh.

Theodora,

I had a brush with the law recently. My family asked me to contact Mr Gino. His quick understanding of my complex case instantly erased my doubts of his capabilities. Mr Gino is very professional and ethical throughout my ordeal, which made me stayed focus and on track. I was very impressed and happy with the outcome of his counsel. He is someone whom I can entrust my family with. Thank you again Mr Gino.

Chow tuck wai,

Mr Gino was able to close my case in straight 15 days. He promptly advised me immediately after the incident when I was charged. It was during the weekend and he did not hesitate to provide me with right advice without any contract etc, only on phone. Within a day, he sent a representation to the AGC and followed up with them to close the case within 12 days. I was completely free within 15 days after the police procedure was completed.

He is very friendly and very professional.

Prakash,

Mr. Gino managed to have my case closed within 5 weeks after he submitted the Representation to the AGC. It was a charge of “voluntarily causing grievous hurt” but I end up getting away with a warning letter, which is the best outcome possible. He is a quite straightforward guy with a sharp mind, so do not expect any sugar-coated words from him, however, his candidness serves great help in dealing with a case that requires sober analysis of facts and deduction. He can be a bit busy and sometimes do not reply to emails that fast, but his assistant Yanting is always there for you. A big thank to Yanting as well.

Haixiang,

Gino is a good lawyer. The case was pending since long time and has accelerate when I engaged Gino. The outcome was as I expected. Thanks

Florian,

Gino Hardial Singh has provided legal advice and guidance during my difficult situation. I found him to be experienced, responsive, knowledgeable and honest.

He is a great lawyer. After the first meeting with him i felt like i got a good and confident person to deal with my difficult situation.

Although my case took almost once year to resolve he provided me proper guidance and confidence from time to time. During my police investigation phase itself i needed my passport for overseas travel and he helped me immediately to get my passport to travel overseas without any restriction. During my police investigation phase i needed my passport for 3 times and every time he helped me promptly.

I was very lucky to have Mr Gino as my lawer and definately i will recommend him to others.

Thanks Again Mr Gino for everything you did for me.

A K Gupta,

I am a Singapore PR for 10 years, married with two kids and I would like to give my sincerest gratitude to Atty. Gino for helping me out with the case lodged against me.

I was falsely accused by our former Foreign Domestic Helper (FDH) of molesting her in May 2018 after my wife and I decided to terminate her service due to her bad performance and attitude. The only thing I can think of her reason for lodging a police report against me is to legitimise her action by running to an NGO that sheltered her when she ran away from our flat on the day of her departure.

Being a law-abiding person, I was scared and had no idea on what to do as I had no idea about the basis of the report. My wife then Googled “criminal lawyer” and found an article about Mr. Gino giving pro-bono service on Straits times. I tried calling a couple of other lawyers, at first but they initially asked for a deposit before anything else, which made me think that they’re only interested with my money. On the other hand, when I tried calling Mr. Gino, he did not ask for anything other than asking to possibly meet him to discuss my situation on the same evening I called him. He received me to his residence that evening and discussed the whole story. He did not only listen to my side but he showed empathy by putting himself in my shoes and making me feel that he’s a long-time friend than my lawyer representing me. From the way he talked and explained things to me, you would discern that he is a very experienced criminal lawyer with very sharp sense. I met him again after the police interrogation and talked to my wife before she was interrogated.

He and his team then took action by sending a representation letter to the AGC and after almost a month of agony, he informed me that the AGC had directed the police to take no further action against me.

The burden has been lifted off my shoulder and I can continue to move on with my life. This is my first time of being accused of such crime and I’m lucky to have found Atty. Gino. He is a gem in legal profession.

Ray,

Gino felt more like a friend than a lawyer. But he is a great lawyer – make no mistake about that. After an arduous few months, he succeeded in getting me a “no further action”.

There are four reasons I would recommend him to anyone under investigation.

First, Gino has a really sharp legal mind. He works through the various paths of defence and comes incisively to the one that makes most legal sense. And he’s able to explain why he is choosing a particular path. His sense of logic is impeccable.

Second, Gino doesn’t only use his mind, he uses his gut. In my case, we were both torn about whether it would make sense to send a representation at a particular stage, given the facts of the case. In the end, we went with Gino’s gut, and Gino’s gut prevailed.

Third, Gino doesn’t just use his mind, he doesn’t just use his gut, he uses his heart. This is what I mean when I say he felt more like a friend than a lawyer. He was easily contactable over the phone. He was willing to discuss the case with you even though he’s discussed it before, because he understands you are anxious and wants to allay your concerns. And he receives you into his house, because he wants you to trust him as a friend. He didn’t want the relationship to just be business-like.

Finally, with Gino, it’s not about the money. He probably doesn’t need the money. In fact, he wants you to spend as little money as possible while getting a good outcome. He is not interested in directing the case in a way that may increase his billings.

Even if I could afford a QC, I would take Gino – because the QC wouldn’t care the way Gino does. And anyway, who know – Gino may well be on his way to becoming a QC.

jmt,

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Gino for his help. The moment we got in touch with him, he arranged to meet us immediately. He listened carefully, asked questions to understand the situation better and his confidence and calm demeanour was a great source of comfort to us.

We received word that there will be no further police action for the case about 5 weeks after Gino and his team sent in their representations. We feel as if a great burden has been lifted off our shoulders.

Thank you from the bottom of our heart, Gino!

W,

This is coming in a bit late but my husband and I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Mr. Gino from releasing us from the misery we had from last Aug to Dec. We were at a loss & had even sought legal advice from another lawyer before him who charged us a consultation fee but which left us clueless of what to do next. When I came by Mr. Gino’s profile & review on this website, I decided to call & discuss the case with him on behalf of my husband. He immediately fixed an appointment for us to meet & discuss on the case. My only worry was whether my husband, who is not a local, will be deported back to his country as we have a little one to think about too. But Mr Gino gave us the confidence that nothing like that will happen & he even wrote in to the Singapore Attorney General’s Chambers to reduce the criminal charge against my husband. Soon after that my husband was let off with a warning & a fine which has since been cleared.
I would like to take this opportunity again to thank Mr. Gino for his sincerity in wanting to help us & would also like to strongly recommend his expertise in this legal field as you are definitely in good hands. We are grateful to you, Mr. Gino & we wish you success in every path of your life.

Raje,

I was new to Singapore and found myself in a very stressful position where a small joke blew up out of proportion – and worse case scenario I could have been deported out from Singapore with a record. I initially hired a lawyer (a civil lawyer posing as a criminal lawyer) who charged me an absurd amount of initial money and throughout the process I felt as though he ultimately wanted it to go to court (so he can make more money); I understand it was my decision to hire him, but being new to this country, stressed and uncertain of who to talk to it was a horrible spot to be in to be taken advantage of.

Luckily, I found and switched to Gino who listened, consulted with his team and took action immediately with the prosecution. If only i consulted him first – it would have saved me much more time, money and peace of mind. Thanks to Gino, I am still in Singapore without a record and am able to get along with my life in this great country.

N,

Me and my husband would like to express sincere thank you to Mr Gino and Mr leonard for all the effort they have put in our case. we’ve been going thru this ordeal since in year 2014, when he took over our case, its already half way on trail and it only lasted few months. The agony me and my husband facing all this while was unbearable. As a result of his extensive legal knowledge he manage to convince the Singapore Attorney General’s Chambers to reduce the criminal charge brought against my husband.
I strongly would recommend Mr Gino because he will give advice very sincerely.
once again thank you.

shuraiya,

I am blessed that I found Gino when searching online for best lawyers in Singapore.

I felt lost, sad, depressed and angry for the allegations done against me. When I called Gino he responded and the same day we met in his office.

Gino was very sharp, straight forward and calm me down directly. He explained all my options and possible outcomes of my case. He took his time and lessened to my story in detail, with follow-up. Few days later he send in a representation letter to AGC. Within 6 weeks after the letter my case was closed without charge.
I learned quickly Gino is a fighter, he cares for his clients, show passion and open with you. I was not alone from the moment I called Gino.  

Thank you Gino for being you, you was there for me during the worst time of my life. I wouldn’t hesitate one second to recommend you! Thank You.

DR,

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Gino for his help and assistance during my case of alleged Outrage of Modesty which lasted about 3-4 months.

Although I was never arrested or required bail, it was definitely a very trying ordeal as the liabilities and fear of having to go through the process of a police investigation was mental, psychological and emotionally draining.

I found Gino through this website and sent him an email detailing my case. He then responded and asked me to meet him the following day to discuss the case.

Upon meeting Gino, he elaborated on the various outcomes and scenarios and what I can expect. He was sincere, patient, kind, understanding, empathetic and did everything he could to calm my jitters, nerves, and concerns.

Gino sent out a letter of representations to the Attorney-General Chambers Office (AGC) in my defense. I also had to undergo a polygraph examination during the whole investigations period.

Again, the agony of waiting and uncertainty was difficult but Gino made every effort he possibly could to check in on me from time to time and see how I was doing.

Ultimately, the AGC issued a letter indicating that they would direct the police to take no further action against me. I couldn’t be any more thankful for all that Gino has done for me during this very difficult and trying time. I highly recommend Gino and thank him once again for everything he has done.

V,

I am really thankful that my wife found Gino for my case so that my case can be solved in about two months which is just about 1 quarter of the normal process time.

This was the darkest moments of my family. I was worried and didn’t know what to do until my wife found Gino from online. Gino explained all the possibilities and gave me confidence to face the case and present my facts in a solid way. Gino also helped me to recall all the details that can help in my case. And I really think that this is the key reason why my case did not go to any court proceedings. My wife was extremely worried and depressed during the time. But I was really lucky that she found Gino so that the darkest moment ended very soon. And now we can move on with our normal life.

I feel really thankful to you Gino. I strongly recommend him.

MK,

I am thankful that I seeked Gino’s help and assistance for my case
I thought that I am not able to get through this and felt lost during these times. I can say this is one of the darkest moments of my life.

I was desperate for help and luckily found Gino online after searching legal assistance in Singapore.
I called the number on the website and Gino answered. He set me up for an appointment on the same day on Sturday!

Gino was very transparent and straight forward. He explained to me all the possible outcomes of my case. Whenever I have questions, he would always respond.

My case did not go to any court proceedings. Finally, I.can move on with my life.

I am really grateful to you Gino. More power to you.

SK,

I’m thankful that I found Gino for my case which quickly solved in 5 weeks. When I received the phone call from the police station, I did a quick search for help and I’m glad that I found Gino. He answered my call and requested to meet immediately and quickly sent in his representations before I make my way for a statement. I’m the end, I was not charged but only to receive a warning which is the best outcome under the circumstances. It has been a worrying 5 weeks for me and my Wife and I’m thankful we can now move on with Gino’s help.

Edmund,

M Kit Valen,

Last year, I was accused of rape from an acquaintance that I had consensual sex with – things got bad and she decided to get back at me 2 months after and reported me with this false accusation.

I was called in to Cantonment Police (SSCB) on a Sunday morning to record my statement. Though I was never arrested and never needed a bail, it was still the worst morning I’ve had in my life. I was filled with anger and at the same time, worrying on what’s going to happen to me as this was my first police investigation I’ve ever gone through.

The IO was very unfriendly, warning me that I can be jailed for up to 20 years and caned 24 strokes. Worst thing is unlike cases like assault / burglary etc, rape is by nature a very shameful act. My biggest worry was if this goes to court, my name and pictures will be appearing all over the papers. Imagine the embarrassment I’ll have to go through as a “suspected rapist”.

On that Sunday evening, I googled for lawyers for legal advise. None were willing to spare a time for me as it was a Sunday, until I found Gino’s number, also through google.

He calmed me down on the phone, took notes on the background facts of my case, and arranged for a meeting with him the next morning in his office.

We met the next day first thing in the morning. He was very calm, confident, and his confidence in handling my case was a huge relief. He presented to me the facts, my available options, all the possible outcomes, and what to expect from here.

The first thing he did was to write me a representation letter to the AGC, doing investigative work for the IO on my defence – presenting evidence on my side to convince the AGC that this is a false accusation of rape, this must not make it to court, and to direct the police to take no further action against me.

Police investigations took very long, and the first 3 months was the worst period for me psychologically. He did regular checks with the AGC to check on the progress of it, calls to my IO to monitor the progress of the case, and at the same time, periodically checking with me on how am i doing.

After 10 long months of agony, the AGC just replied today saying that they will take no further action against me. I decided to write this review just a few hours after I received the news as a form of thanks.

This is a huge relief, and I can finally get back to life.

I’m very thankful to Gino for the help he has provided me during this unfortunate period of my life. Thank you once again!

K,

Gino did an incredible thorough job of looking into my case and tackled it swiftly, obtaining an acquittal for me in less than four months. He was empathetic and gave me hope in what was one of the darkest periods of my life. I couldn’t be more thankful.

Kim,

Mr Gino looked into every minute details of the case and gave me his honest opinions and eventual scenarios that could happen. He was confident throughout the representation and constantly comforting me down. He was straight forward and upfront with his vast experience. A very genuine individual and is very quick with his actions.
Thank you Mr Gino.

Ivan,

I was being investigated by police for causing voluntary hurt and possession of offensive weapon. Depressed and at a lost about what to do, I contacted Gino. He wasted no time to call me and fix an appointment. He laid out clearly the situation I am in, what I can do at the point and his fees. I followed his directions and he helped sent a representation to the AGC. Within 2 months I received a reply that they will issue a stern warning instead of pressing charges. I would like to thank Mr Gino for his professional legal help. I am happy with the outcome and I can finally move on with my life after this horrific ordeal.

Jimmy Hor,

I am Joe. I am very Lucky to engage Mr. Gino as my Lawyer. To me he is very upright and helped me to close my case to his best capability. I admire Mr Gino.
Thank you very much for your help . I strongly recommend him.

Joe Sng,

As a Registered Nurse, I never thought I would have to seek out legal advice from anyone at any time or place. It just so happens that in an a country where the laws are completely different, things happen out with your control that need to be rectified with the aid of a lawyer. I approached Gino Singh for advice and action on a matter where I was initially attacked, with which I retaliated with unfortunate consequences. Me Singh was more than happy to take on the case, and gave a very thorough demonstration on the likely outcome of the legal proceedings.

Mr Singh was, in my option, more than dedicated in defending my actions, and appealing to the legal bodies to consider my case as one that was completely provoked and extraordinary. He acted with due diligence with the professionalism that you would expect from a high class lawyer, and even went the extra mile in assessing the situation personally at the scene of the incident.

I have never been in any situation like it in my life, and through the actions of Mr Singh, I was spared from a lengthy legal battle with the law enforcement due to lack of evidence. Yes, it is a very stressful and costly exercise, but Mr Singh made swift work of the normally drawn out and mundane process. I cannot thank Mr Singh enough for his expertise and professionalism in handling this case.

In my opinion, Mr Singh is an extremely knowledgable and confident defence lawyer, is formidable in a positive way, and will do the utmost to ensure that his client is represented in the best way possible. I cannot thank him enough for his input in my particular case, and would not hesitate to recommend him to any ex-pat that may experience unexpected turbulence in a country where the laws are extremely rigid.

Emma Tintor,

Mr Gino is an outstanding individual. I was at my darkest hour not knowing what to do about my pending cases of one charge of criminal breach of trust and one charge of false statement. I approached Mr Gino and he told me to meet him. My first impression of Mr Gino was that of an intimidating individual who tells you the facts of the case and it’s obvious from it that he has years of experience. I was truly touched by the effort shown by Mr Gino . He is a great lawyer with a human touch, an outstanding individual who puts his 100% into your case. I am extremely pleased and touched very much by his efforts and goodwill nature . I will be penalised with a fine for both of my cases with non custodial terms thanks to the efforts of Mr Gino. On behalf of my family, I greatly thank you Mr Gino. You made it possible. I strongly recommend Mr Gino to anyone who needs an exceptionally straightforward lawyer who will tell you the facts upfront and do rest assured that he will do his best for you. Once again thank you Mr Gino.

Muhd shariff,

I really would like to thank Gino! I was arrested by police and put into the police station for one day. When I was bailed out by my friend the police say they would investigate me for the charge of “using abusive language aginst a public servant and disorderly behavior”. Gino helped me to have the police gave me a warning instead of criminal charges within only 3.5 months! (I hear it usually takes quite long for the whole investigation process, 6-12 months maybe?) I was terrified when the police put me to station jail, handcuffed me and took my passport away. Talking to Gino, knowing that he had so many experiences fighting similar cases really calmed me down. Gino definitely knows how to fight my case, the procedure, the right people to talk to, to get evidence from, etc. Also, his spirit and passion are very assuring. He is definitely the lawyer to go for!

JW,

I have been searching for a lawyer for my mediation and the other law firms have been asking for money upfront and only give a damn about the money part but I found Mr Gino from this website and messaged him about my case and he straight away asked me down for consultation to introduce his partner for me to handle my case .

Mr Gino was the only one who replied my message straight away and planned his schedule for me even though I’m so last minute and gave me assurance and comforted me and they don’t charge for consultation while other firms over charge for consultation fee . If you are looking for a lawyer , he is really good, especially lawyers from his firm too.

Alyssa Ng Zhi Xin,

Excellent lawyer, very understanding and professional. Highly recommended.

MW,

Gino is indeed a strong and compassionate lawyer with lots of kindness. He may look fierce and stern when I first met him at the law firm. But the legal work he has completed for you is truly a comfort and privilege. I am truly and sincerely thankful to Gino for his passion and commitment to me during my most difficult financial times. The heart sees better than the eyes. I would highly recommend Gino to anyone who needs help both emotional and psychologically.

Anderson Woon Chong Lean,

I would like to thank Gino for all the effort he has put in my case. I was accused of outrage of modesty, but Gino’s quick response and sending of representation letters to AGC helped to resolve the police case within 2 months. There was no charges filed against me. Me and my Wife will remain ever grateful to Gino for his help and advice all through police investigation process. I will highly recommend him as a lawyer who understands your case thoroughly and gives you honest recommendation for your situation.
Regards,
PM

PM,

I was framed for a robbery charge by the actual robbers. Mr Singh defended me and the matter was fixed for trial. He believed me and stood by me all the way even though I didn’t have a credible alibi witness. I don’t know what would have happened if Mr Singh wasn’t my lawyer. I was given a full acquittal today. Thank you Mr Singh. My family and I are eternally grateful to you.

razif,

I was facing a very serious charge of rioting outside a club, a charge of which I was innocent. The fact of the matter was that I had tried to stop a fight from happening, but ended up being implicated alongside a bunch of other people with whom I am not acquainted. Thankfully, Mr Gino got me acquitted and the charges withdrawn, by making very strong representations to the Attorney’s General Chambers. I am especially impressed and relieved at the speed and manner in which Mr Gino helped me to resolve my case. Thank you so much sir for all the help!!

Prashan Chandrasekaran,

I am Zhang Yan and thanks for your help! When I was in trouble, I felt so depressed and helpless. Praise the lord! God chose you as my lawyer and accompanied me for one year. During the whole one year, I was thinking for myself for many times. Thanks very much! You gave me hope and courage to live in the world. Meanwhile, thanks for your associate Arun. Although I go back to China, I will remember you and Arun forever. And my families will remember you. Hopefully you can help more people who need help. You warm the cold world and give people hope. Thanks!

Zhang Yan,

My son was charged for sexual penetration of a minor and AWOL charges. The complainant was his girlfriend’s mother. Mr Singh represented my son and helped us with representations and the eventual mitigation and submissions on sentence.He managed to reduce the sentence to below the benchmark starting point for such offences. My son will be released soon as his sentence had been backdated. Thank you for helping us do your best for my son Mr Singh.

Siti,

I was charged in court in October 2015 for 2 serious offences. One count of dishonestly receiving $153,000.00 and one count under the CDSA for disbursing the monies. Mr Gino Hardial Singh took on my case Pro Bono through the Law Society’s CLAS. Mr Singh spent approximately 20 hours taking instructions from me across a span of many months. The matter was fixed for trial but thankfully a conditional warning in lieu of prosecution was administered by the CAD. Mr Singh is a confident and brave fighter who works hard for his clients and takes his cases seriously. I am thankful to Mr Singh for believing in me and trusting me. Mr Singh spent many sleepless nights thinking about my case and preparing for trial. He was always there for me to help me go through this terrible time in my life.

Julia Oh,

An honest and sincere lawyer. Gino is straightforward in his legal advice and helped me navigate the ups and downs of my case professionally. When everything seemed bleak he was there to provide the moral support and advice towards the alternatives available. The fact that you can always reach him without any restriction is a huge relief for anyone with tonnes of issues and questions. I highly reccomend Gino to those who are facing tough times for their stupidity and ignorance. At the end of the day Gino’s advices helped me pull through and i cannot be thankful enough that god met me with him. Thank you sir! May we meet again under different circumstances.

Khairul Zaman,

Mr. Gino is a thorough professional who goes out of his way to support his client in distress and despair. He not only scrutinises the minute details while representing but gives his client a true picture of all possible scenarios and options available as per the case. He is a man of his words and doesn’t beat around the bush to engage his clients. His confidence in his knowledge surely is comforting for the client and he never gives up on his client, which makes him unique from others. His way of dealing with his clients is straight forward and upfront with minimum sweet talking but putting up the facts based on his professional knowledge and vast experience. A person who is already under stress, trauma and fear of an investigation, needs a genuine professional who knows his job to protect and represent you, that is without doubt is Mr. Gino. While you are having sleepless nights worried about the outcome, he spends his nights only thinking of ways to protect you by professionally weighing all his options within the legal circumference. Thank you for believing in me during the most difficult time of my life.

GK,

I would recommend this lawyer to be your representative. I was in a serious situation with the law but with Gino’s help, he was able to assess the situation and help me through my difficult time. I am sure without a doubt Gino is able to assess the situation and help lighten your charges. I could have been charged but now I’m given a warning instead with Gino’s help. Thank you so much and God bless.

Oston Jim,

My mom was charged with a criminal offence and i sought help from Mr Gino Hardial Singh. As a result of his extensive legal knowledge he manage to convinced the Singapore Attorney General’s Chambers to reduce the criminal charge brought against my mom. The subsequent sentencing resulted in my mom getting a fine instead of detention. Thanks Mr Gino Hardial Singh for helping my mom.

Benjamin,

Mr. Hardial Singh represented me for a criminal matter involving 5 charges of causing hurt to police officers etc. Through his several representations he managed to reduce the charges I faced and instead of serving 18 months thereabouts I had to serve only 4 Weeks after remission. Thank you so much for helping me.

Sundaram,

Mr Gino Hardial Singh fought hard for me and I was acquitted on 3 charges. 1 count of Voluntarily Causing Grievous Hurt, 1 count of Voluntarily Causing Hurt and 1 count under the Children & Young Person’s Act. Thank you so much for believing in me and standing up for me Mr Gino and Mr Arun.

Darmaraja s/o Rajandran,

Mr Hardial Singh represented my staff who had been charged in court for forging certificates. Through his meticulous expertise, Mr Singh managed to get him a full acquittal without the matter going to trial. Mr Singh has an in depth knowledge and the necessary experience in criminal matters and handled the case well.

K Anba,

My Father had been charged for outrage of Modesty. He did not commit the crime.
Gino made several representations and eventually the prosecution gave my father a discharge not amounting to an acquittal.

Gino acted for my father through CLAS. He never gave up on my father.

THANK YOU MR GINO

Saifulbahri Bin Hambali,

I was investigated for a serious offence and I approached Mr Gino Hardial Singh for help. He trusted me and he promised to do his best for me. He made representations to the Attorney General’s Chambers and delivered on his promise. Today I am a free man. Thank you Sir.

Daniel,

I was wrongly accused for a crime that I did not commit. I was being investigated by the police. As a foreigner I didn’t know what to do and was very scared. I was afraid that I could lose my job and status in Singapore. Mr Gino Hardial Singh believed in me and helped me with representations to the Attorney General’s Chambers and the Police. After months of anxiety of being investigated by the police, finally they decided to drop the case and no further action was taken against me. I was very much grateful to Mr Singh and and Mr Arun who assisted. I would very much recommend him. Thank God and thank Mr Gino and Mr Arun for your help.

Nakoorsha handled my case along with his associate Sher Min. Him and his team came to me with utmost professionalism and dedication. They swiftly came up with options I had and dedicated themselves to helping me deal with this very difficult time. No matter the outcome, I feel that I am grateful for Nakoorsha and his team for the hard work they have put in for me. I would highly recommend going to them if you are in need of urgent assistance. Thank you Nakoorsha and your team! Eternally grateful!

Sharon Tan,

We got to know Nakoorsha though a friend’s recommendation. He invited us down for a non obligatory chat to understand the case was able to explain and provide my Dad and myself with very clear advise and solutions. He also stated the legal fees involved and promised us that there were no hidden charges. He was friendly, down to earth and we felt assured after the first meeting with him so we decided to engage him for my Dad’s case.

Nakoorsha represented my Dad well. He kept us informed of what was going on, what to expect and what we should do. He also explained the implications that might come along the way and made sure we understood what he was doing as well as what the possible outcomes could be, whether it is good or bad.

After several rounds of court meetings, discussions by Nakoorsha and the DPP, my Dad’s case finally came to a close with a stern warning given. We could have not done this without his expertise and we appreciate his time and effort in achieving a very positive outcome for the case.

I would strongly recommend Nakoorsha if you are looking for a responsible lawyer who can clearly articulate what all the legal jargons are and of course provide good solutions.

Jonathan has been so assuring in my ongoing employment law dispute. He is a sincere and upfront person. I truly am blessed to have him handle and advice in my matter. I will recommend his services highly .

Victor Nathan,

Jonathan and his team represented our underprivileged client pro bono.
He always responded to our queries promptly and provided us timely updates.
We are grateful for his professionalism at the court as well as the compassion he demonstrated towards our client during our briefings.

MS,

We proved his compassion as a lawyer and heart to provide quality legal service. He is excellent and practical yet righteous, man of faith, who would always pray for us before/after meetings. He’s more concern to help me about my case than the financial aspect. We’re very thankful to God that we were connected to a lawyer like Jonathan Cho.

CJ,

Jonathan assisted me on crafting an indemnity for an event that I am running.

His communication was prompt and smooth, and everything went ahead of schedule. He was quick to make necessary amendments when needed.

I highly recommend Jonathan Cho
