I was arrested on early April for MDA 8b and released on the same day under personal bond. On the next day 4th April, I randomly searched for legal helps online, spoken to one or two lawyers on phone, and finally decided to meet Gino to discuss my case. From the very first meeting, Gino has been very professional, confident, and analyse my case in a comprehensive, in-depth perspective. He has then prepared me a letter of representation and sent over to the enforcement and AGC in less than a week. During the letter preparation, Gino also patiently listened to my inputs/comments on the letter to put my case in best position. After 2 months sending out the letter, Gino called me and break the good news to me that there is no charge against me and I am only given a warning. I would like to thank Gino for the support and help throughout the toughest time of my life. I will turn over a new leaf and cherish all the good things I have in life.

DRL,

Many thanks to Mr Gino for taking the time to analyse my case and write a very good representation for me. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Mr Gino for all the care and concern Mr Gino has shown me, and for working tirelessly to ensure that outcome is in my favour. If it weren’t for Mr Gino’s analytical skills and knowledge, my case wouldn’t have been settled so successfully. Thanks once again for your legal advice, time, and efforts. I am so grateful for your passion, dedication, and professionalism. Mr Gino is absolutely the right lawyer to engage when facing allegations!

The first months of 2019 were the worst of my life. The police investigated me for an “outrage of modesty” claim made by a lady against me (she was entitled to after what I did to her). I had my passport taken. I contacted Gino, who was very frank, calm, empathetic, and told me what my chances were (he said we should act fast). He went to the scene to find out what had happened and then helped me prepare my representations to send to the AGC. Gino and his staff managed to get me off the hook with a warning instead of being charged and facing potential jail time. He was very professional at all times and demonstrated he had a lot of experience. I made the right choice by hiring Gino and I recommend him to anyone facing issues with the law. I would certainly hire him again. Thanks Gino for your great work! O.C.

OC,

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.
