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.
