Andrew has been involved with all types of criminal defence and road traffic work, from murder to speeding. Andrew assists with Crown Court cases and at one point led a team that was simultaneously engaged in the conduct of five murder trials. Road traffic is another important part of Andrew’s workload, due to the proximity of the M4 and other high-volume roads.
Andrew worked in Social Work before training to become a lawyer. He has considerable mental health experience and he is skilled at recognising cases where mental health/learning disability issues may be involved, which demand a high level of sensitivity.
