Principal Associate (Family Lawyer)Phone: 44 (0)161 235 5431Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgOffice: Manchester
Apart from your closest friends, I will probably be the first person you will speak to about your family problems. From the start of our working relationship, we will discuss all of your options and will decide together what the best next step is for you and your family, at a pace that suits you.
As an experienced divorce lawyer, I will be able to inform you about divorce procedure and the financial split of your assets, how to overcome hurdles to see your child on a regular basis or deal with any other family issue that might be keeping you awake at night. I can also advise upon and draft pre and post nuptial agreements, along with separation and cohabitation agreements. If you have a problem that I or my firm cannot help with, I have other trusted professional contacts in the Manchester area who I can refer you to.
I am collaboratively trained and can recommend mediators, which enables me to offer you a range of approaches to deal with your family dispute and tailor them to your needs.
You might be interested to know that I recently completed a counselling course in my own time to better understand and cater for my clients’ emotional needs. I always endeavour to maintain a professional but personable relationship with my clients as well as with other lawyers.
It is my belief that a poor relationship between lawyers increases the animosity between the parties and contributes to everyone losing sight of the real issues and, ultimately, the best interests of the family.
Clients have recently made the following comments about the standard of service I provide and strive for:
“Andrew has a maturity beyond his years, and has demonstrated an extremely high degree of integrity and professionalism throughout this process.”
“I can honestly say I don’t think the handling of my divorce could be improved upon in any way.”
“Just a quick email to say a big thank you for all of your help over the last year. You have been amazing (especially keeping me on a leash!!) and I will not forget how professional you have been.”
“You were the first professional to give me any confidence.”
“You have worked very hard, been diligent and got results.”
“Andrew kept me sane in some very arduous times and followed up with timely, professional robust responses, especially in the FDA where he impressively deconstructed the opposition’s barrister’s arguments.”
In Chambers and Partners I am ranked as an 'Associate to watch' and the market commentators are quoted as saying that I am “excellent; very sensible and charming”.
I am a past chairman of the Collaborative Law Manchester POD and remain on the committee as their POD liaison officer. I also sit on the Manchester Resolution committee. I am a mentor to students at Manchester’s BPP law school and provide regular assistance at the College Of Law.
You will also benefit from my knowledge and numerous links with local accountants, financial advisers, banks and other professionals who complement the high quality service I endeavour to provide.
Having grown up in Yorkshire, trained in London and now with firm roots in South Manchester, I have a personal history that allows me to understand and appreciate people from all manner of backgrounds. The quality of work in Manchester, Cheshire and the rest of the North West is diverse and complex and has involved me acting for a range of people from hard working professionals to even more hardworking multimillionaire entrepreneurs!
I regularly present on family law topics throughout the region and write for national publications.
