Products & Services


I am experienced in defending very serious cases, as well as less serious matters that can have serious consequences if they result in a conviction or disqualification from driving. I am known for giving clear and realistic advice to clients and for identifying the real issues in the case. Most of my clients have no previous experience of the legal system and it can sometimes appear overwhelming. I am committed to ensuring that cases are fairly resolved with the minimum possible delay, stress and expense.

I bring a mixture of experience, objectivity and reality to the issues in the case. All cases are thoroughly prepared and client meetings are well prepared and structured. I provide realistic advice and ensure that my clients feel well supported throughout the process and are clear about the road ahead.

Andrew is a highly experienced Motoring Offences Lawyer. As a Motoring Barrister, rather than a Motoring Solicitor, Andrew is able to give clients much better value for money than you would expect. Andrew has a phenomenal knowledge of Motoring Offences and also the rules relating to the Magistrates Court. As such you can trust his judgment and follow his advice in the safe knowledge that it will lead to the best outcome for YOU, whatever that is in your case. I was found not guilty of S.172 offences despite having been told by everybody I spoke to other than Andrew that I should plead guilt! Furthermore I was also awarded the vast majority of my costs, meaning that Andrew was very inexpensive after the money I was awarded by the Court. Andrew is the perfect choice if you want a high quality service at a good price, especially considering the quality of his work and his extensive experience.
