About Andrew

I launched Truth Legal in August 2012 with the aim of changing the image of personal injury law: usually personal injury claims are a good thing, modifying negligent behaviour, shifting the financial burden off the state and reducing future injuries. I also represent people who have been poorly treated at work, and people or companies who are owed monies.
