I am Joe. I am very Lucky to engage Mr. Gino as my Lawyer. To me he is very upright and helped me to close my case to his best capability. I admire Mr Gino.
Thank you very much for your help . I strongly recommend him.

Joe Sng,

As a Registered Nurse, I never thought I would have to seek out legal advice from anyone at any time or place. It just so happens that in an a country where the laws are completely different, things happen out with your control that need to be rectified with the aid of a lawyer. I approached Gino Singh for advice and action on a matter where I was initially attacked, with which I retaliated with unfortunate consequences. Me Singh was more than happy to take on the case, and gave a very thorough demonstration on the likely outcome of the legal proceedings.

Mr Singh was, in my option, more than dedicated in defending my actions, and appealing to the legal bodies to consider my case as one that was completely provoked and extraordinary. He acted with due diligence with the professionalism that you would expect from a high class lawyer, and even went the extra mile in assessing the situation personally at the scene of the incident.

I have never been in any situation like it in my life, and through the actions of Mr Singh, I was spared from a lengthy legal battle with the law enforcement due to lack of evidence. Yes, it is a very stressful and costly exercise, but Mr Singh made swift work of the normally drawn out and mundane process. I cannot thank Mr Singh enough for his expertise and professionalism in handling this case.

In my opinion, Mr Singh is an extremely knowledgable and confident defence lawyer, is formidable in a positive way, and will do the utmost to ensure that his client is represented in the best way possible. I cannot thank him enough for his input in my particular case, and would not hesitate to recommend him to any ex-pat that may experience unexpected turbulence in a country where the laws are extremely rigid.

Emma Tintor,

Mr Gino is an outstanding individual. I was at my darkest hour not knowing what to do about my pending cases of one charge of criminal breach of trust and one charge of false statement. I approached Mr Gino and he told me to meet him. My first impression of Mr Gino was that of an intimidating individual who tells you the facts of the case and it’s obvious from it that he has years of experience. I was truly touched by the effort shown by Mr Gino . He is a great lawyer with a human touch, an outstanding individual who puts his 100% into your case. I am extremely pleased and touched very much by his efforts and goodwill nature . I will be penalised with a fine for both of my cases with non custodial terms thanks to the efforts of Mr Gino. On behalf of my family, I greatly thank you Mr Gino. You made it possible. I strongly recommend Mr Gino to anyone who needs an exceptionally straightforward lawyer who will tell you the facts upfront and do rest assured that he will do his best for you. Once again thank you Mr Gino.

Muhd shariff,

I really would like to thank Gino! I was arrested by police and put into the police station for one day. When I was bailed out by my friend the police say they would investigate me for the charge of “using abusive language aginst a public servant and disorderly behavior”. Gino helped me to have the police gave me a warning instead of criminal charges within only 3.5 months! (I hear it usually takes quite long for the whole investigation process, 6-12 months maybe?) I was terrified when the police put me to station jail, handcuffed me and took my passport away. Talking to Gino, knowing that he had so many experiences fighting similar cases really calmed me down. Gino definitely knows how to fight my case, the procedure, the right people to talk to, to get evidence from, etc. Also, his spirit and passion are very assuring. He is definitely the lawyer to go for!
