Andrew Stynes

Head of Family Team


Andy is a Solicitor and an Associate at Frettens and he heads our Family Team. With vast experience in all aspects of family law, he advises clients on divorce, separation and the associated financial issues. He also advises on disputes over children, such as contact issues, pre and post marital agreements and co-habitee disputes.

Andy is also trained as a collaborative lawyer. Collaborative lawyers work with you, your partner and your partner's lawyer, in a series of face to face negotiations, to help you resolve your family disputes, to reach an agreement rather than go through court proceedings.


Andy enjoys walking in his spare time and is slowly working his way along the Dorset Coastal Path. He is also a keen field archer, but hastens to add, he doesn't shoot anything live! Andy is an enthusiastic cook and even cures his own bacon. As those in the office will verify, he makes a mean Sourdough Foccaccia!!

What our clients say

  • Being the first time I had ever had to use a solicitor, I had no idea where to start. I found the first free consultation very helpful and informative. Andrew was extremely helpful throughout.
