Brief description:

GONG Chu (Oscar) started his foreign legal service lawyer career in 2005 and now focuses on criminal defense. In 2015 Lawyer Gong created his own law firm CHINA LAW FIRM, GUANGDONG which is growing steadily. Lawyer Gong has processed many cases of different categories with foreign factors involved, and he has processed around 100 criminal cases involved with foreign factors, which are mainly cases of drug trafficking, hacking fraud, trade fraud, homicide & personal injury, etc., such as: Defending a heroine trafficking suspect from Pakistan, Defending a marijuana trafficking suspect from UK, Defending a marijuana trafficking suspect from the USA, Defending a mainland Chinese homicide suspect who killed a Hong Kongnese, Defending a suspect of intentional injury from UK. A foreign language speaking Chinese lawyer who is specialized in criminal defense could bring better result with higher efficiency for a foreign suspect than other Chinese lawyers who need assistance from an interpreter/translator in the work. For example, the better result with higher efficiency in foreign criminal suspect defense can be reached by Lawyer Gong through his work including but not limited to: Visiting the suspect directly and communicating freely with him/her; Communicating with his/her family member(s), colleague(s) and/or friend(s) directly; Communicating with or reporting to the embassy/consulate that is from the suspect’s country to China, needing no help from a language worker. All these work, if put together, may result in elimination of worries and concerns and misunderstandings that often lead to wrongful/unfair comments to Chinese justice also the embassies/consulates of the suspect’s homeland to China to the largest extent.
