About me

I meet people at what’s often the worst moment of their life, and I help to guide them through to a brighter looking future. I’ve been a practising family lawyer for over 35 years, and there’s still no better reward than helping my clients move onto a new chapter in their life with confidence and security.

The Family Law team are large and experienced, and all have a real commitment to caring for each client and understanding what they need. I’m available to talk no matter what time of day, and I’ll do everything I can to ensure you know exactly what’s happening at each stage of the dispute.

I enjoy all sport, especially football (I’m a long-suffering Leeds United fan), and I have a passion for music – I drum in a band with some other members of the firm.

Relationships & Family Law

Andrew has handled two sensitive and personal legal matters for me, and impressed me on both occasions with following qualities: He was thoughtful, thorough and pragmatic in his analysis of the issues raised, their relevant details, and in his responses to the issues. He listened carefully to my questions and comments, and responded quickly and clearly with analysis and advice aimed directly at the issues. Andrew had a calming influence when dealing with very stressful and personal issues, during the meetings and court attendances we had when dealing with both elements of the case. On both occasions, Andrew delivered a successful result. I would use Andrew again, and recommend his services to anyone who required them. Client
