After being advised by the police that an altercation I was involved in was being investigated, I reached out to a lawyer friend based abroad for advice on who would have the right profile to help me with the case. After doing some research Gino came in at the top of his list due to a number of attributes including being an ex-police officer and having such a significant number of acquittals.

Gino and his staff are personable team who clearly explained the process and developed a compelling case to achieve the best possible result I could have hoped for. Having them assist on the matter also gave me peace of mind during this ordeal.


I hired Mr Gino and his team while under Police investigation to understand better the process and prepare my defense if trials were to happen. Mr Gino has been very helpful in supporting me, guiding me through the process and ultimately ended up with a very positive outcome. I would recommend Mr Gino and his associates.


Mr Gino is a defense lawyer that never backs down from a fight. Thanks to him, my father was granted the desired outcome he deserves. Would highly recommend to all

Muhammad Siddiq,

After a night of drinks with friends, I got into a very silly but unfortunate incident which turned out to be violations within the law system. After almost half a year of waiting for the investigations to be complete, I decided to take some legal advice which is when I happened to get in touch with Gino. After briefly explaining to him the facts over a call, I was invited to his office where he patiently explained the nitty gritty of the laws and the processes involved. The meeting was definitely a blessing in disguise wherein he immediately agreed to represent me after carefully examining the minute details of the incident. He and his team are extremely professional, know their turfs incredibly well & most importantly knows how to treat their clients with utmost respect and integrity. Had a follow up meeting with his Team – Deepansh who carefully took all notes asking me all the right questions regarding the incident and myself. I was particularly impressed by not just the sheer caliber the team possesses but the ethical angles from which they approach each & every case. Within a week, a letter of representation with clear details was swiftly drafted and sent out to AGC. In about 5 weeks from then, I received the good news of the representative decision from AGC. A warning was meted out without any record of conviction. I would highly recommend Gino & his team – Deepansh if you are looking for legal help at any stage. A big thank you from the bottom of my heart.
