Mr Gino is a defense lawyer that never backs down from a fight. Thanks to him, my father was granted the desired outcome he deserves. Would highly recommend to all

Muhammad Siddiq,

After a night of drinks with friends, I got into a very silly but unfortunate incident which turned out to be violations within the law system. After almost half a year of waiting for the investigations to be complete, I decided to take some legal advice which is when I happened to get in touch with Gino. After briefly explaining to him the facts over a call, I was invited to his office where he patiently explained the nitty gritty of the laws and the processes involved. The meeting was definitely a blessing in disguise wherein he immediately agreed to represent me after carefully examining the minute details of the incident. He and his team are extremely professional, know their turfs incredibly well & most importantly knows how to treat their clients with utmost respect and integrity. Had a follow up meeting with his Team – Deepansh who carefully took all notes asking me all the right questions regarding the incident and myself. I was particularly impressed by not just the sheer caliber the team possesses but the ethical angles from which they approach each & every case. Within a week, a letter of representation with clear details was swiftly drafted and sent out to AGC. In about 5 weeks from then, I received the good news of the representative decision from AGC. A warning was meted out without any record of conviction. I would highly recommend Gino & his team – Deepansh if you are looking for legal help at any stage. A big thank you from the bottom of my heart.


After getting myself into hot waters I looked up for a lawyer to fight for me and that’s how I found gino. Thanks to his help he guided me on what to do and was very determined to fight for me. I managed to just be given a warning and nothing else. I would definitely be coming back to Gino and his team if I ever need any help again.


After being accused of a serious violation of the Penal Code, I was placed under investigation early this year and had to provide a statement and had my phone and passport confiscated.

After finding Abbots Chambers online and having decided to engage Gino for advice, it turned out to be the right decision by miles. Being a friendly and an all round great guy, he only wants the very best for his clients and he and his team put together an excellent legal representation which had my case closed several months later with no further action taken.

Gino and his team are responsive, experienced and considerate. They are always around to respond to any new information or questions that you may have about the process and I felt that I could call into the office anytime to have a chat. Being new to this kind of thing, it was exactly what I needed to get through the process.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Gino and Abbots Chambers for any trouble with the law that you may find yourself in, give him a call and he will quickly put your mind at ease and start to fight your corner at any stage. I spoke to a couple others to get advice on this matter and Gino’s approach is unmatched.
