Andrew started work in the Law in 1990 after serving in the Merseyside Police for almost 12 years, where, as can be imagined, he dealt with a wide range of incidents both in uniform and in plain clothes. His career was brought to a premature end due to an injury on duty.
In 1996 he took a position at Langleys Solicitors, York, where he continued to develop his skills in handling a significant and varied case load of injury claims, ranging in value from modest fast track claims up to high value, Multi-Track cases where the issues, both legal and medical, were complex and involved.
In 2003, Andrew moved to a newly established Firm, Pryers Solicitors, effectively joining from the commencement of trading, and enjoyed being involved in assisting in the development of the firm from employing just 5 members of staff to one employing in excess of 50! As well as managing his own heavy caseload, Andrew was also responsible for supervising the entire Personal Injury Department, ensuring that it reached targets and maintained a good level of profitability.
Andrew has a first class understanding of running Multi-Track cases to Trial and therefore his knowledge on Costs Management and budgeting makes Andrew a fabulous addition to the team at Carter Burnett. Andrew has great advocacy skills and regularly attended Costs Case Management Conferences to deal with case management, so he understands the pressure on Solicitors during the budgeting process and intends on making this as easy as possible for his Solicitor clients.
Andrew has always had a hands-on approach to the legal costs recovery on his own files and it was whilst working at Pryers, he first met and worked with Jon-Paul and Lee. When he retired from full time work at Pryers in December 2018, Andrew joined Carter Burnett and hopes to add his experience to the office.
Away from work, Andrew enjoys spending time with his family and socialising with friends. He is a life-long motorsport fan and enjoys cycling in the Yorkshire countryside.
