Andrew favours an exploration and solution-focused approach to Family Law matters. Essentially, Andrew aims to provide a non-judgmental space where he works with his client to explore his client's circumstances, values, needs and wants. This approach allows Andrew to identify the short term and long term issues in his client's matter. By doing so, he ensures that his client's case remains grounded so that his clients avoid unnecessary costs, delay and ongoing stress.
Andrew's clients compliment him on his down to earth nature, efficiency, his no-nonsense approach towards family law and ability to explain complex legal concepts in plain English.
Outside of work, Andrew is interested in mindfulness meditation, photography, history and hiking. As a Singaporean-Australian, Andrew is keenly interested in keeping in contact with Singapore and the Singaporean community.
