I was facing the toughest time of my life, I was falsely accused of a crime. I was investigated by the police, and my passport was taken.
For 11 months I remained silent and tried to remain calm while waiting for result from the police. The more I wait, the more it is
hard not to be anxious. I’ve decided that It is time to get a lawyer(which I should have done earlier).

I came across Mr. Gino’s profile and I was astounded with the reviews from his previous clients. I did not hesitate and immediately called him
and after talking with him I availed his services. He’s very frank and confident man which made me feel at ease, you can feel from his words that he has a lot of experience and that I am in good hands. For a few weeks, He and his team helped me prepare representations for AGC.

After another month, he called to tell me the good news that I only received a stern warning and nothing will happen to me.

I was really thankful for his help and I will definitely recommend him to you guys who are reading this and are planning to get a lawyer

T,

We learnt about Mr Gino through the many good reviews given by his clients and we never once regretted our decision. Mr Gino and his team were knowledgeable, experienced and respectful. They were always ready to answer questions throughout the process. With his expertise and compassionate support, Mr Gino was able to guide me through an overwhelming court system and get my case a favourable result. Thank you for sticking with me and family. I would definitely recommend Abbots Chambers without any reservations.

nurul,

Gino and his team were brilliant in dispensing their duties towards my family and myself. My case has wrapped up and so relieved there are no serious repercussions.

I knew I was in very good hands from the moment I contacted them. I decided to hand my case to them seeing how interested they were in finding solutions while tackling the root of the issues I was facing. It wasn’t just the case they were focused on handling, but were equally invested in my well-being.

They were fully transparent in how they will handle the case and organised all the necessary referrals required to prepare a good case for me.

I am ever so thankful to Gino and team. You rarely ever get a second chance in life to fix your wrongs, but I am so grateful I got this opportunity with the help from Abbotts and will not take this for granted.

They have my highest recommendation.

JL,

Mr Gino Hardial Singh helped me pull through the most difficult period of my life. I was in a lot of stress when I was charged (for Theft as a Servant) until I contacted Mr Gino. My wife and I took quite some time to find the right lawyer and we made the right choice having chosen Mr Gino. He provided me with a sense of calm when we spoke on the phone. He was very committed to the case; frank, straightforward, and very responsive.

Mr Gino was very confident with the case and this is testament to his vast experience and professionalism in legal practice. He submitted the letter of representation to the AGC and the outcome came in just 5 weeks later. I was relieved to just be given a warning and a fine; no court and my record will be clean, thanks to Mr Gino. The whole process was fuss-free and Mr Gino was very nice and understanding, making me feel at ease throughout.

All this happened during the Circuit Breaker period and yet Mr Gino was able to accommodate to the case. My sincerest gratitude to Mr Gino for letting me live my life to the fullest and I can never thank him enough. I would also like to thank Mr Aniket Pai and Ms Michelle for helping to work on the case alongside Mr Gino. I can assure that Mr Gino is the lawyer to go to without a doubt!

TT,
