I was framed for a robbery charge by the actual robbers. Mr Singh defended me and the matter was fixed for trial. He believed me and stood by me all the way even though I didn’t have a credible alibi witness. I don’t know what would have happened if Mr Singh wasn’t my lawyer. I was given a full acquittal today. Thank you Mr Singh. My family and I are eternally grateful to you.

razif,

I was facing a very serious charge of rioting outside a club, a charge of which I was innocent. The fact of the matter was that I had tried to stop a fight from happening, but ended up being implicated alongside a bunch of other people with whom I am not acquainted. Thankfully, Mr Gino got me acquitted and the charges withdrawn, by making very strong representations to the Attorney’s General Chambers. I am especially impressed and relieved at the speed and manner in which Mr Gino helped me to resolve my case. Thank you so much sir for all the help!!

Prashan Chandrasekaran,

I am Zhang Yan and thanks for your help! When I was in trouble, I felt so depressed and helpless. Praise the lord! God chose you as my lawyer and accompanied me for one year. During the whole one year, I was thinking for myself for many times. Thanks very much! You gave me hope and courage to live in the world. Meanwhile, thanks for your associate Arun. Although I go back to China, I will remember you and Arun forever. And my families will remember you. Hopefully you can help more people who need help. You warm the cold world and give people hope. Thanks!

Zhang Yan,

My son was charged for sexual penetration of a minor and AWOL charges. The complainant was his girlfriend’s mother. Mr Singh represented my son and helped us with representations and the eventual mitigation and submissions on sentence.He managed to reduce the sentence to below the benchmark starting point for such offences. My son will be released soon as his sentence had been backdated. Thank you for helping us do your best for my son Mr Singh.

Siti,
