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.

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.

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 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!

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.

Walter arranged to see me the same day I contacted him. He gave calm and level headed advice during a difficult situation. He helped me understand my rights as an employee and I appreciate his help. Thank you Walter.

Laura,

I engaged Walter regarding an issue over product liability in a contract clause. Walter answered to my satisfaction and provided insights that I have not considered. He was accommodating and genuine when giving his perspective on my legal issues.
I would certainly recommend him and his practice for those seeking legal advice.

Rudolph,

Walter was recommended when I had a commercial litigation matter in 2013. He was sharp and his expertise in litigation allowed us to collect our dues quickly. He is highly recommended for litigation. In fact, I am using him to this day for all my legal matters.

So grateful that someone can give advise for free. He listened carefully and paid attention to my concern without asking anything in return.

I approached Silvester Legal LLC on 7 September for a case of defamation. They were professional in gathering the facts and putting together a notice to be sent to the offending party that same day. The very next day, 8 September, the defamatory post was taken down. Extremely effective. I would strongly recommend Silvester Legal LLC.

Florence Koh,

I posted a question and Walter instantaneously contacted me for a FREE consultation. He spent time to review my documents and discussed the case before giving his assessment and recommendation. Truly appreciative of his precious time and advice. He is easy to talk to unlike other lawyers who love to use legal jargon. Would highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal advice.

Leni,

It was my first consultation with Mr Walter for some legal advices. We consulted him for advices on company issue on directorship which have some complications linked with investment. He patiently explained to us on the potential outcome of the whole scenario and what actions we can take. We managed to understand the situation with a clearer picture and how to protect ourselves in the event if we need to be involve. His explanations are clear. Really thankful for his advices.

I approached Walter with a legal issue and he gave me clear and practical advice which solved my issue very quickly! He was responsive and agreed to resolve my matter for a fixed fee. I have no hesitation in recommending Silvester Legal LLC.

BL,

I work for a shipping company and we approached Silvester Legal LLC for an urgent piece of work in the late afternoon before National Day. It was done efficiently and without fuss for a very reasonable fee even though it had to be rushed. Walter was very humble and accommodating in helping me getting the job done.

Vineet,

The company approached Silvester Legal LLC for a dispute with a GLC. Walter offered practical and timely advice. It was clear that he had the interest of the company at heart and his advice was not only precise, it was commercially in the best interest of the company. Highly recommended for commercial law.

“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,

“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.
