Andrew is a director and senior criminal lawyer based in our Brisbane office and appears for clients on a daily basis in courts all throughout South-East Queensland.

Andrew joined the criminal law team in 2013. In that time he has gained a strong reputation for his resolute negotiation style and fearless courtroom advocacy.

Being able to provide a voice for clients in situations where they are unable to speak for themselves is a rewarding experience and a vital aspect of legal practice.

In appropriate matters, he also engages with Queensland’s most experienced barristers to ensure that his clients have the benefit of a strong and committed legal team behind them.  Outside of the courtroom Andrew applies a methodical and analytical approach to all of his client’s matters to ensure he achieves the best possible outcome.

Andrew has a keen interest in sports and racing law and has represented clients on successful appeals before the Queensland Racing Disciplinary Board as well acting for athletes of all levels in relation to match fixing offences and those relating to performance enhancing drugs.

Andrew’s Testimonials

“I went through a very stressful time in my relationship . Mr Andrew (Lawyer) was compassionate, professional and understanding re-instating a DVO order for protecting myself. I thank him and Potts Lawyers for assisting in this matter and achieving a good result , much appreciated for providing me with peace of mind and support.”

“Dear Andrew,

Can’t thank you and bill enough for what you guys have done for me mate, you have worked so hard just to keep me out of jail, glad I picked the best in the business! Still can’t believe I’m back home free. Hope you have a great Christmas.”

“Just a quick note to say thank you for your work on behalf of my brother in law Andrew! He has been very embarrassed and stressed by the whole incident!  However, he has mentioned to me (on a few occasions) that he valued your advice and especially your Court appearance, which took a lot of the stress off him.  The outcome was also great! Way better than I had expected. So thank you!”

“Good morning Andrew,

I would like to thank yourself and Potts Lawyers for your professionalism and candour over the last 2 years. The work that you have both performed went beyond the normal realms of ‘paid work’ and I believe this was displayed in an outstanding win for all parties. Can you please pass on my appreciation to counsel and the staff at Potts Lawyers.

Whilst I hope that I never require your services again, your details will be presented to anyone I come across requiring your services. Again thank you from my family and I.”
