Gino can navigate the complexities of cases and pressures that that be exerted on you.

It not just that he gets results, but it is the moral way in which he achieves these results that put him in good standing.

Thank you Gino and team for your help and sound advice during these times!

Micheal,

I’m on a charge of robbery since 2019 April.
First timer of charges, and was totally lost as i’ve never find any lawyer before. Tried different law firm and then i found Mr Gino.

It was a hard and long case, emotionally and mentally draining for both my family and Mr Gino.

Every month going to the court for a year and so, and coming to discuss with Mr Gino of all possibilities and circumstances.
Indeed, i’ve found the right gentleman to handle my case.
He’s not only confident, but truly understanding of whatever issues i’ve been through and being super patient with what’s going on to my case.
He wrote a thorough reps letter, to helped me with my case.

After going through PTC stage of a few months, today, i got a happiest news of my life which is being acquittal.

Mr gino, no doubt, is the best lawyer, the down to earth and a superb human being that willing to go through ups and downs to help you and guide you.

I’m really indebted to him.

Kay,

I was represented by Mr Gino Hardial Singh and Mr Aniket Pai with Ms Tan Shu Ling for allegations of outrage of Modesty which were made against me by my domestic helper. Mr Singh and his team managed to obtain an acquittal after 3 days of trial pursuant to a settlement agreement. My wife and me are truly indebted to Mr Singh and his dedicated team of professionals. God bless you all. Thank you for saving my life.

RC,

The moment I first spoke to Gino I knew I was in good hands. Even during the lock down period, Gino worked relentlessly on my case. There were allegations made on me under the criminal intimidation act and Gino gave me sound advice for the next course of action and put me at ease.

The Circuit Breaker period was a tough time for all. Having a police case on top of that was seriously depressing, especially when you are staying alone with no where to turn to. Gino in this course of time made sure to be in contact with me on a regular basis to see how I was doing and to make sure I was doing well and was in a good state of mind. This is something you dont get from most lawyers. From being my lawyer he became a very close friend, one who was there anytime I needed someone to talk to or needed advice.

His knowledge of the law and excellent representation ensured that I was not prosecuted and I was let off with a stern warning. This case could have easily turned south easily but thanks to Gino I got a favourable outcome.

Gino is highly recommended for anyone out there who is in need of an excellent and dependable representation, you wont go wrong there.

Thank you Gino, really appreciate everything you have done!

Vince,
