I am thankful that I seeked Gino’s help and assistance for my case
I thought that I am not able to get through this and felt lost during these times. I can say this is one of the darkest moments of my life.

I was desperate for help and luckily found Gino online after searching legal assistance in Singapore.
I called the number on the website and Gino answered. He set me up for an appointment on the same day on Sturday!

Gino was very transparent and straight forward. He explained to me all the possible outcomes of my case. Whenever I have questions, he would always respond.

My case did not go to any court proceedings. Finally, I.can move on with my life.

I am really grateful to you Gino. More power to you.

SK,

I’m thankful that I found Gino for my case which quickly solved in 5 weeks. When I received the phone call from the police station, I did a quick search for help and I’m glad that I found Gino. He answered my call and requested to meet immediately and quickly sent in his representations before I make my way for a statement. I’m the end, I was not charged but only to receive a warning which is the best outcome under the circumstances. It has been a worrying 5 weeks for me and my Wife and I’m thankful we can now move on with Gino’s help.

M Kit Valen,

Last year, I was accused of rape from an acquaintance that I had consensual sex with – things got bad and she decided to get back at me 2 months after and reported me with this false accusation.

I was called in to Cantonment Police (SSCB) on a Sunday morning to record my statement. Though I was never arrested and never needed a bail, it was still the worst morning I’ve had in my life. I was filled with anger and at the same time, worrying on what’s going to happen to me as this was my first police investigation I’ve ever gone through.

The IO was very unfriendly, warning me that I can be jailed for up to 20 years and caned 24 strokes. Worst thing is unlike cases like assault / burglary etc, rape is by nature a very shameful act. My biggest worry was if this goes to court, my name and pictures will be appearing all over the papers. Imagine the embarrassment I’ll have to go through as a “suspected rapist”.

On that Sunday evening, I googled for lawyers for legal advise. None were willing to spare a time for me as it was a Sunday, until I found Gino’s number, also through google.

He calmed me down on the phone, took notes on the background facts of my case, and arranged for a meeting with him the next morning in his office.

We met the next day first thing in the morning. He was very calm, confident, and his confidence in handling my case was a huge relief. He presented to me the facts, my available options, all the possible outcomes, and what to expect from here.

The first thing he did was to write me a representation letter to the AGC, doing investigative work for the IO on my defence – presenting evidence on my side to convince the AGC that this is a false accusation of rape, this must not make it to court, and to direct the police to take no further action against me.

Police investigations took very long, and the first 3 months was the worst period for me psychologically. He did regular checks with the AGC to check on the progress of it, calls to my IO to monitor the progress of the case, and at the same time, periodically checking with me on how am i doing.

After 10 long months of agony, the AGC just replied today saying that they will take no further action against me. I decided to write this review just a few hours after I received the news as a form of thanks.

This is a huge relief, and I can finally get back to life.

I’m very thankful to Gino for the help he has provided me during this unfortunate period of my life. Thank you once again!

K,
