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,
