Solicitor Advocate


Andy is a solicitor-advocate at our busy Bristol office.  He is an accredited duty solicitor and as such is able to provide his clients with advice and assistance round the clock at the Police Station, as well as representing them at the Magistrates Court and beyond.  Andy routinely deals with clients facing allegations of the most serious nature at the Police Station including murder, fraud and serious sexual offences, where his approachable and empathetic nature means that he excels at helping his clients feel at ease and building a rapport with them, despite the pressurised situation they find themselves in.  He is also frequently instructed to defend those facing issues relating to serious fraud including Proceeds of Crime Act matters, where his clients value his ability to quickly identify the issues in their case and help them to understand this very complex area of law.

As a Solicitor-Advocate, he is also able to offer his clients the benefit of a truly seamless service as he has the expertise to conduct advocacy at the Crown Court.

Andy has the additional skill of being able to converse in Cantonese and has a loyal following of clients from within the Chinese community; regularly accepting instructions for cases not only within the Bristol area, but also across the UK.
