“I would like to say that Andrew Horner was excellent. His approach to the client was very deaf aware and I observed the client being very relaxed in his presence.”
“Andrew Horner recently represented me in a difficult family matter. He put me at ease immediately with his professionalism and grasp of the salient points of the case. Not only did I find Andrew thorough but also his own humanity shone through in understanding my position. I was extremely nervous of ensuring I was represented in a manner I felt was appropriate, I need not have concerned myself and would have no hesitation in recommending any person looking for representation in a similar field.”
“I really appreciate Andrew’s efforts and approach. I’m grateful for his advice and persistence. His professionalism and personality shine through in his work and collaborating and negotiating alongside him is a pleasure. I’ll certainly be recommending him.”
“Andrew represented me in a family law matter that I believed there would be no return from and I expected the worst. Andrew is an asset to 2 New Street and family law, he is well versed in the legalities around family law, Andrew’s professionalism is on point and also he has what many people in the industry lack and that is the human touch. From the start to finish I felt at ease and that I was in the best hands, and against all odds we achieved the outcome we wanted.”
