Andrew works in the areas of criminal law and traffic law, providing practical advice in all of his clients' matters.

Andrew has, over many years, developed positive working relationships with prosecutors, magistrates and judges. His no-nonsense approach means he has a reputation for putting forward the best case possible for clients.

In is spare time, he is a piper with the Canberra Burns Club Pipe Band, and has played at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Andrew’s experience means he can appear for you in a breadth of matters in criminal, traffic and disciplinary proceedings.

I have been very impressed with Andrew’s professionalism. It is my perception that the other party and her counsel undertook a large number of unfair tactics throughout the course of the matter. Despite this, Andrew was able to calmly think on his feet while under considerable pressure. Ultimately Andrew secured a great outcome for myself, my children and my broader family. We all owe him our gratitude.

Just want to take the opportunity to thank Andrew he was very kind to me and my sister in a very distressing situation/time. He kept us informed the whole way through and tried to ease our stress which we very much appreciated.

Thank you very much Andrew. In one of the most unpleasant moments of our life it was actually great to meet you. Your charisma and professionalism were key to bring peace again to our family. Thank you very much for all your kind attention.

Andrew and staff were completely professional, understanding, considerate and discrete. Thankyou.

I could not have asked for better and understanding people today. You took every single one of my annoying freak out emails and made me feel okay. I could not have gotten a better result today and it would not have been possible without you. Anyone looking for a lawyer, I would look no further I'm telling you there is no one better. Once again thank you from the bottom of my heart. Not just from me but my family.

Thank you so much for everything and especially with such a great outcome, thank you!!

Thank you very much for personalised touch. When I spoke with Andrew for the first time I knew he was talking the talk. In the court room Andrew came in second to none and won our case outright! I think he is a legend and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone anytime in the future.

When you're faced with a potentially 'life changing' charge and very little experience of the legal system it was reassuring that excellent representation such as that provided by Armstrong Legal is available.

Thanks again to Andrew for being very extremely supportive, professional and giving me excellent advice. I noted that the Magistrate made a comment in court about Andrew's effective representation of my matter and I think this feedback should be highlighted. I also appreciated his assistant Jess' courtesy, helpfulness and timely responses.

It is not a nice thing having to go to court but having Andrew guiding the process and his knowledge of my situation made the process a lot smoother.

Andrew Fraser is such a knowledgeable solictor. Such a gentleman and didnt beat around the bush with possible outcomes. He achieved the best possible outcome for my case. I will always be ever so grateful for Armstrong Legal's professional approach to any legal matter.

From a Fathers perspective, I was more than contented regarding the final outcome of the case. The advice Andrew gave regarding character references, etc, proved beneficial in achieving the best possible outcome. Thank You.

Hi Andrew, I just wanted to say thanks very much for your support today and for getting me such a good result. I've really appreciated your assistance and your fantastic representation of my matter.

Thank you for all the assistance you and your team provided in my matter. That was truly an amazing result! You handled my case with utmost professionalism. I would highly recommend your team.

Thank you Andrew, for everything. You worked your guts out today. You are a legend. An absolute legend.

Thank you Andrew, for everything. You worked your guts out today. You are a legend. An absolute legend.

Thank you for your professional yet personal service that achieved such a fantastic outcome. We appreciated your expert and reliable advice that contributed to us feeling safe and in good hands.

My matters were dealt with with in a very professional matter. I thank the team at Armstrong legal, especially to my solicitor Andrew Fraser who helped me through everything at such a difficult time.

Both Andrew and Jess were very helpful and quick to reply to any enquiry. The information received matched the outcome of the case which shows the experience of Armstrong Legal.

Thank you. I was extremely impressed with Andrew and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Just a warm and heartfelt thank you from us for the honest and professional way in which you have dealt with the case resulting in justice being done by having her released without conviction.

Andrew Fraser represented me in a criminal matter mid May 2017 at Queanbeyan Local Court. I was amazed at Andrews’ capabilities and professionalism throughout our contact in this legal matter.

With just 45 minutes direct council at Armstrong Legal, Chambers Civic ACT and several phone calls of just 5 minutes in length, Andrew came to know me well enough to represent me clearly and comprehensively having studied my requirements all too well. Information I shared with him was relayed to the Magistrate efficiently and very effectively and I felt that Andrew did a great job. He had me feeling as if he had known me for years.

When my matter had concluded the result was nothing short of excellent and I thank you once more Andrew Fraser and Armstrong Legal for representing me.

Andrew demonstrated good knowledge detailed preparation and approach settling several matter, including mine. His professionalism and ability to argues his cases was respected by his peers, clients as well as the magistrate. An excellent Councellor.

Thank You for all your amazing work and support in helping me with my case. In a time when I was at my lowest you were able to guide me and show me to a door with a desirable outcome. I will be forever greatful.

From my initial.consultantion, Andrew Fraser provided exceptional service and advice. The ladies at reception were professional, kind and welcoming. Andrew explained everything in detail, responded to every question I had and was very understanding and considerate of my circumstances. Andrew is a kind, intelligent and professional lawyer and regardless of the outcome (which i could not have asked for a better one), leading up to court, i felt less anxious. I could not recommend Andrew more highly.

Just a quick email to say thank you again for everything. I was not expecting the outcome that I received. Although I thought a fine would have really driven the message home, I actually think receiving what I did was the best message in that I have a character/reputation to uphold (a carrot approach works so much better than a stick!!). Your kindness, consideration and manner was exceptional. I was not even close to being as anxious as expected and this alone was worth the investment! I could not speak more highly of your professionalism and disposition. You are a good man. Thank you and merry Christmas.

I would like to thank you personally for the assistance and understanding you provided to us last week prior to and during the Hearing before Magistrate Cook. I have no doubt the Magistrate’s finding would have been different without your representation and we are all grateful for the outcome.

I just wanted to thank you for representing me. You provided a very professional service and I am very happy with the outcome, considering what might have been the consequences of my actions.

Andrew Fraser provided me with steady, expert advice and excellent representation with my matter. With Andrew's calming and professional approach I found I had absolute faith in him, and this helped me through an incredibly difficult and stressful time. I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew.

We would just like to say a huge thank you for yesterday. Without you the out come may not have been as good.

I was given clear, sound advice and Andrew’s presentation and performance in court was to me by far the best of the legal representatives that I watched.

Thanks Andrew for providing all sufficient information before the case and help me successfully get the outcome I wanted.

Thank you for your excellent advice with my matter. I was never in any doubt as to when or why I had to take steps to advance my case.

I was thrilled with Andrew's detailed preparation, the development of the argument and especially his performance during the hearing - that was exceptional. Well done!

I want to thank Andrew for his time and professional assistance in my court case on such short notice.

I would like to take this quick opportunity to again thank you for assisting with the outcome we got today. I was really pleased and thank you for your both your valuable advice and input on this matter that could have had such a significant negative impact upon my future. Fantastic result given my situation.

Andrew put my mind at ease from our first contact. Extremely happy with the result.

I strongly recommend your services and can't express my gratitude in the service provided to me during my law matter. Very professional and reliable service.

Mr Fraser was great. He always kept me up to date with what was happening as did Mr Sabharwal. I am very grateful to both for the representation provided to me.

I would like to say a big thank you to you for your patience and assistance in my legal matter. You helped me navigate through a very tricky and difficult time and I appreciate everything you did to assist. Thank you.

Yesterday was a fantastic result. Both outcomes were well beyond our expectations and we are truly thankful. This 'second chance' is life changing for our boys and gives them opportunities that we thought were lost to them. We owe you a deep debt of gratitude. Thank you!

As a law graduate, I seriously considered representing myself in court. I am now so glad I didn't go down this path. The Armstrong Legal Team gave me exactly the right advice, had great knowledge of the local system, and secured an outcome in my case that I wouldn't have dared to hope for going it alone.

Matter dealt with in a professional and understanding way.

After my experience with the Armstrong Legal in Canberra, I thought it would be kind to write a few words as the testimonial in order for other people to believe it. So, if you have been served a DVO, then I am recommending you to contact Andrew Fraser for his commitment and dedication work on your case so that you can get the realistic expected outcome.

I would just like to thank Andrew Fraser with his representation of me I really appreciate everything.

Although I only saw Andrew Fraser less than 48 hours before my court appearance, he was not at all perturbed. He made me feel calm and confident. I was amazed at how quickly he grasped my problem and knew how we should proceed.

Just wanted to thank you again, I think we prepared well and covered all bases. Much appreciated.

Thank you for your common sense advice and support. It has given us immense confidence. Dad and I have felt very assured being in your capable hands.

The professional service I was given with the very limited time to prepare was outstanding. Thank you.
