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.


The best news i have waited for almost 5 years !!! Mr Gino manage to get my case through for just a warning .

Gotten to know Mr Gino through a friend’s introduce for my pending investigation , due to the complexity of the case , it has been dragged over 5 years . During the investigation mr Gino and the team is very professional in handling the whole thing . They wrote in a comprehensive representation for me . Explains the facts correctly and took the due diligence to send timely reminder / chaser to AGC . And finally . It has been concluded with best outcome .

Thank you Mr Gino and the team once again . Really appreciate their effort .


Engaged him for my case, they were quick to respond and dealt it with really nicely. Manged to get an acceptable outcome for my case too. Thank you Gino!


I was charged in court for two offences pursuant to section 19(1)(c) of the Public Entertainments. A conviction would result in hefty fines and demerit points. Our Club would have had to be shut down.

I engaged Gino Hardial Singh and he managed to get me acquitted of both charges at the door step of trial. Thank you for your persistence and tenacity and for saving the Club and our business. I would highly recommend Gino to set things right should you find yourself in trouble with the law.
