What people say

‘Thank you Andrew for all your hard work over the weekend. It was your conversation with the opponent that really unlocked the matter after our conference on Saturday. As we got sucked into working on this over the weekend Andrew showed not even the slightest sign of being inconvenienced. He just got on with it, professionally and diligently not to mention effectively.' – Counsel - Civil litigation matter.

‘We had a child matter which required intervention from Courts and solicitors unfortunately, the court battle was long drawn out but Hannah and Andrew handled it with much professionalism, empathy and got our family to the goalpost we needed. Hannah and Andrew were extremely responsive when issues arose during the proceedings and were always available to answer our questions and concerns.' – Family client

Outside of work

Outside of work, when I am not studying, I play for my local rugby club and spend my time restoring classic cars with my father.

If I were not a lawyer, I would be...

A travel author, travelling the world documenting my adventures.

If I were stranded on a desert island and could take three pieces of music (or books) with me, they would be…

The Life of Pi, The Robert Harris series and Queen, a Night at the Opera.
