We approached IRB Law after doing research on which law firm might be suitable to represent my father in court. We met with Ashwin and laid out the case to him. He was available to guide us through the legal process and was highly professional and compassionate lawyer. He had helped my father through this difficult time and was able to reduce the charges.
My sincere thanks goes to the excellent legal representation of Mr Ashwin. I could not be happier with the results of my husbands trial, as Ashwin went above and beyond to assist my husband in getting a lighter sentence. His confidence in the courtroom never failed to impress me, and he really made us feel like we were in safe hands.
Ashwin has shown a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm from the first meeting right till the case closed. He was clear in his explanations and patient with our endless questions. We were grateful for his fighting spirit seen especially during representations and mitigations. All these had indeed contributed to successfully getting a lenient sentence that we had been praying for. Thank you very much...
