Andrew joins us from the leading family law team in Jersey, an international offshore finance centre known for its high standard of living. Winner of the Jersey Law Society Family Law prize for 2015, Andrew previously worked for the high profile London Family Team of Mishcon De Reya having trained with regional firm Penningtons Solicitors. Andrew has considerable experience in dealing with all aspects of family law, including children matters. His cases regularly have an international element to them with complex asset structures ranging from between £3m to £30m.
Prior to the law Andrew worked in Public Relations and for such companies as Microsoft, Disney and the Dog Trust. Andrew is uniquely placed to assist people going through family breakdown not only due to working for leading national law firms but also due to his prior business experience and working (and living) offshore.
Andrew is equally at home working with families and their advisers to achieve a fair outcome for the whole family, as he is in taking a firm stance when this is not possible. Andrew believes the idiom “an iron hand within a velvet glove” best describes his approach.
What a previous client has said about Andrew:
“Anyone who has been through it will know, being dragged through a very acrimonious divorce is, in a word, hideous! I cannot recommend Andrew Morris highly enough to guide a client through this nightmare. His technical legal knowledge, compassion and empathy are in my experience, extremely rare in his profession. It is thanks to Andrew my children and I are safe, have a lovely home and an optimistic future which I doubt would have been the case without Andrew.”
Outside of work Andrew enjoys spending as much time with his family as he can and golf, when allowed to sneak off and play.

I have really appreciated your help and guidance throughout this difficult process.
Morning To You Both,
Just to say thanks very much for your assistance yesterday, a result I can certainly bounce back from.
Hope your little one is Ok Andrew.
Anyone who has been through it will know, being dragged through a very acrimonious divorce is, in a word, hideous! I cannot recommend Andrew Morris highly enough to guide a client through this nightmare. His technical legal knowledge, compassion and empathy are in my experience, extremely rare in his profession. It is thanks to Andrew my children and I are safe, have a lovely home and an optimistic future which I doubt would have been the case without Andrew.
I am going to miss you and want to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help and kindness. After the bad advice I was given at the previous advocates I would have given up. I was so emotional and divorce, when you are not expecting it, is horrible.
You helped me to see I had a case and I appreciate you taking on my case and helping me, your diligence and kindness at my time of need is appreciated.
Andrew has handled two sensitive and personal legal matters for me, and impressed me on both occasions with following qualities:
Andrew was thoughtful, thorough and pragmatic in his analysis of the issues raised, their relevant details, and in his responses to the issues.
Andrew 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.
