Qualified Oct 2009
Andrew specialises in Personal Injury, Litigation and Family law (divorce/separation and children) matters. He is an excellent litigator and his track record demonstrates this. He does not like ‘coming second’. As a trained Barrister his advocacy skills are very persuasive both in court and when negotiating with the 'other side'. He is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure his clients obtain the best possible outcome in their case.
Andrew has experience of high value divorce/separation matters and personal injury claims along with numerous multi-track litigation matters including injunctions and other remedies required in civil law claims. No matter is too big or too small to discuss with Andrew at a free first meeting and his track record for the clients he represents is excellent.
Andrew is a member of Resolution, as such he believes in and practices a constructive, non-confrontational approach to family law matters. That said, he will always strive to ensure that his clients achieve a fair and reasonable settlement whether it is financial when separating following divorce or cohabitation, or when facilitating contact between children and their parents.
