Anonymous,

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to Ashvin for his outstanding legal representation to the prosecutor that secured a conditional warning for me.

Upon receiving information about my case, Ashvin wasted no time and immediately arranged for a call even though it was a Saturday. His dedication was especially reassuring and I knew I was in good hands.

This was my first encounter with the law and I was visibly stressed, in despair and had a million questions racing through my mind. Ashvin picked up on this immediately, demonstrating his outstanding interpersonal skills and sense of empathy. He was ever so patient in explaining the laws relevant to my case, which saved me from overthinking the worst case scenarios.

Furthermore, Ashvin presented a fair and objective representation of my case, taking into consideration both the prosecutor’s and defence’s perspective. His professionalism made me feel at ease knowing his recommendations are based on sound arguments and strategic considerations, rather than wishful thinking. I believe this is the hallmark of a genuine and sincere attorney who his clients’ best interests at heart.

Ashvin’s unwavering commitment, positive mindset and meticulous work ethic has made this entire situation less frightening and torturous as my case concluded in just 3 weeks. I am beyond blessed to have him guide me through this whole process and cannot recommend any lawyer who’s more well-rounded than him to help fight your case. Once again, thank you Ashvin for your hard work and dedication. I wish you the very best in your future endeavours!

paul soh,

Mr Ashwin is a lawyer who understands what exactly his client wants before offering constructive advice. He made me understand the law, the provisions in the law, not with technical jargon but in layman’s speak and also paints a better picture with a case study or his own vindicated client’s success at court without going into specifics as they wld be in conflict with confidentiality issues. This just goes to show his professionalism and dedication. Basically, he’s concise, precise about what can be achieved- he doesn’t oversell it – and follows thru till results are delivered. Thank you very much Mr Ashwin. I wish you the best in your future endeavours.
