Through the few most worrisome months of my life, Mr Gino has given me professional legal advice and guidance. His experience and confidence is truly inspiring. On top of his professionalism, Mr Gino shows genuine concern and this personal touch was really what made the difference. He was sincere, understanding and empathetic of my situation and went out of his way to help me.
Early in the investigation stage, Mr Gino sent out a letter of representation to the AGC and reassured me not to worry to much. Eventually, the AGC issued a letter indicating that they would direct the police to take no further action against me before the case went any further. I could not 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.

JW,

I was arrested, released on bail and subsequently underwent investigation for a charge of Carrying Offensive Weapons in Public Places under the Corrosive and Explosives Substances and Offensive Weapons Act.

The act which got me into trouble was rash but seemingly trivial. Nevertheless, due to the seriousness of the potential charge, decided to seek legal representation shortly under the advice of my friends.

Before Gino responded to my enquiry, I contacted some other lawyers and while the possible options for me at that point in time were clearly presented, did not convey the same kind of confidence and decisiveness as him. My wife and I were in Gino’s office the same evening I contacted him and he advised that my best option was to write a letter of representation to AGC so that I do not get charged in court. Gino is straight talking and yet assuring at the same time. After the meeting, we were finally able to breathe easier and in his words, “go live your lives”.

Upon engaging him, he provided clear instructions for me to carry out leading up to the letter of representation. Throughout the entire ordeal, both himself and his assistant were very responsive and prompt with both the submission of the letter of representation as well as my requests to travel.

After 6 weeks from the submission of the letter of representation, it was Gino who broke the favourable news from AGC that I was going to be let off with a warning.

Thank you.

Robin,

My husband and i had face some allegations against us by our domestic helper. As we needed legal advice we looked for a lawyer to assist us. During our search on the internet we came across Mr Gino. We contacted him and he immediately made an appointment for us to meet him the very next day. During our initial meeting Mr Gino listen to our concerns and assured us that he will assist us in every way possible. He motivated us to stay positive and not to worry about the case. It was indeed a stressful period for me and my family. The case went on for more than 6 months. But during this period Mr Gino always motivated us. He always briefed us the moment he had any updates on the case. He was also very accommodating to our calls and messages despite the late hours at times. Finally the AGC updated that they will not be pursuing the case any further. It was indeed a relief for us. I am indeed very grateful to Mr Gino for his assistance. I would say that he was very much a friend to us. Very polite and assuring in nature. Thank you Mr Gino.

Sumathi,

I got to know Mr Gino through sg legal advice web page. I and my wife needed some legal advice with regards to a police case involving our domestic against us. The moment i contacted Mr Gino, he made an immediate appointment to meet him up after office hours. Mr Gino was very assuring during our first meeting. He kept assuring us that all will be well. He wrote representations to the AGC for us. Though the case went on for more than 6 months , Mr Gino always kept updating us. He was always accommodating to our queries regardless of the time we called or messaged him. He kept motivating us to carry on with our lives and to put our worries aside. All ended up well as how Mr Gino assured us. I cannot find words to express my gratitude for Mr Gino. He had done a great deal for us. A very simple and down to earth guy. I found it so easy communicating with him. Thank you Mr Gino.
