Andrew is a great defence lawyer . He’s very understanding and super caring towards circumstances. Andrew is also very very patient with his clients. He worked with my case dearly even though I didn’t have the funds . My charges were dropped and withdrawn within 6 months! I could not have asked for a better human being to defend me! I owe him a lot! He is amazing and I’ll never forget him!

I was very fortunate to find him, he is a very professional, very caring and very kind lawyer. He was able to get my teenager son criminal charges withdrawn in six months with no criminal records. His price was very affordable and even let me do installments. I will always be grateful for him for everything he had done for us. I will recommend him to everybody who is looking for a criminal lawyer. Thank you Andrew. God bless you.
