Practising exclusively in Australian immigration law since 1988, Andrew provides tailored advisory services, representing individuals, families, entrepreneurs and businesses to successfully navigate through the processes of temporary, permanent and citizenship/naturalisation.  

Andrew’s clients include individuals and companies worldwide, executives and business people seeking intra-company transfers; retirees, entrepreneurs and other investors, religious workers, sports players, professionals as well as talented individuals with a record of exceptional international achievement.

Andrew’s longstanding clients include S&P 500 companies and high-net-worth individuals. Services include developing and implementing migration strategies and providing ongoing review.

Andrew assists clients at all stages of the immigration process, with assistance in complex cases, whether before the Department of Immigration or the Administrative Review Tribunal, or, if appropriate, judicial relief through the federal courts.

Andrew continues to deliver incisive and engaging seminars to the migration profession and teaches postgraduate migration law at several Australian universities. He served as national examiner in immigration law at the Migration Institute for 10 years and was the inaugural recipient honoured with the Henry Giblett Award for his contributions to education in immigration.

Andrew has appeared before the legal and constitutional and migration committees in the national parliament on immigration matters. He has served as a board member of the Migration Agents Registration Authority, including chairing the code of conduct committee.

Andrew has contributed to a number of important texts and articles, including developing with Lexis Nexis a useful reference card in immigration law for the immigration profession.

Andrew holds a bachelor of arts degree and a graduate diploma in managing legal organisations from Melbourne University; a bachelor of laws degree from Deakin University; a master of arts degree (migration studies) from Macquarie University; and a graduate diploma in information management from the University of New South Wales.
