Thanks to Mr Gino and his team for their time and dedication in helping me to present my case to the council on my behalf. They are on the ball and responsive to my queries and are prompt to their updates. Thanks to their help, my case has been dropped after only 1 month. It has saved me a lot of agony from all the waiting during the investigation.

AB,

As a British citizen and only having been in Singapore for a very short period of time, I was up against the challenge in being able to identify a lawyer who I could really trust in my specific case.

After rounds of diligent research I found a true champion in Gino – the best equipped in the game – someone I could really trust.

I was thoroughly impressed with Gino’s level of integrity, his analytical skillset, dedication and ability to pay real attention to detail; combined with his experience and wealth of knowledge.

I witnessed a relentless attitude from Gino in driving the best possible outcome for me as a client. More importantly, he effectively got my case settled in just 6 weeks. I’d like to thank Gino for his great efforts in drawing up a super-effective, winning-mentality representation and providing full support and reassurance along the way.

Larry,

June 2019, my helper of almost 2 years who we treated more than family, ran away and filed a fake case of abuse against me and my wife. This happened after we asked her for a closure as we no longer needed a helper (bcz my kid is bit grown up and we can manage on our own). When we informed her about our decision, she said she has taken some loan and I either need to pay her huge sum of money or give her 4 months time! When we did not agree, she ran away next day and filed a fake case of abuse saying we pushed her on different occasions, citing some random dates of 6 months and 1 year old!
The police investigations begun. We had all the evidences that we did not do anything at all, but instead she was treated like a victim and we were treated like some criminals when it was exactly opposite reality.
Soon, after two months of investigations, our passports were taken away, we were not allowed to travel for work or neither to meet our families, and that’s when it occured to us that truth may not prevail on its own! We needed help.
I looked for some lawyers online and came across Gino. We met the same day evening and he was very professional in discussing the possibilities of case and told us that we needed to take control of whole thing. He gave us an impression that we will be taken care of.
Working with Gino wasn’t very easy in the beginning, but we soon understood his way of working and left things to him. He filed our representations in 1.5 months and we got a reply from AGC in another 1 month saying “no action to be taken from police”, wrapping the case.

We are thankful to Gino for helping us. The representations written were very crisp and professional and we would recommend anyone who is stuck with such cases to take his help asap. Don’t know what would have happened if we didn’t engage him and didn’t take control of things in our hands. Thanks!

Vimal Jangid,

We are very grateful for Gino’s assistance and counsel over an incident of harassment. Gino was quick to advise us on the processes and actions that needed to be taken to file a Protection Against Harassment Order (POHA) against the offending party. He was with us every step of the way in filing our affidavits. He is fearless and unrelenting in fighting for our case and we are pleased with the settlement we got in the end. If you’re looking for a legal counsel who is willing to go through great lengths to help you with your legal needs, we would highly recommend Gino and his team!

S. and C.,
