In a storm, Andrew can restore peace of mind.


9.5 Star Star Star Star Star Overall Experience
Pros

Andrew has a calm, friendly and assertive personality, which arms you with a partner that can support you when you are at a time of need. He is true to his word and doesn`t mess around. He gives direct useable advice in a supportive way. I hope I am never in that position again but if I was I would turn to Andrew every-time.

Areas for Improvement

For me I can't fault Andrew. He was always on time, called when he said he would and delivered a result I wasn't expecting. Nothing is certain in life and you need to have realistic expectations when it comes to family law- nothing is fair in life especially family law but Andrew helps you to navigate the worse of it.

9.3 Star Star Star Star Star Overall Experience
Pros

Andrew took time to really understand my situation and gave me sensible options and great insight into the process. We worked together on the approach and I felt I could trust him. The process was really hard at times but I always felt supported and heard. He was wonderful in a seven hour shuttle mediation session and adapted really well to changes on the day. I always felt confident he had my best interests at heart and knew what I could afford to invest.

Areas for Improvement

In hindsight there was one clause in the orders we could have simplified, but ultimately it went as well as it could have.
