Andrew Elliott has practised in family law since 2014. He has been admitted to the Supreme Court of Queensland, the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory and the High Court of Australia.
Andrew joined Ward Keller’s family law team in February 2021 after a 12-month stint as a lawyer in London and 10 years in his home state of Queensland before that.
‘I practised as a family lawyer in Queensland for the majority of my career’, said Andrew. ‘I find the work very interesting because every family law matter is different.’
Andrew assists with all family law matters and has experience with a range of issues, including parenting and child support disputes, property settlements and spousal maintenance.
Andrew also has extensive criminal law experience, particularly in relation to drug related offences, child welfare matters, domestic violence and breaches of domestic violence orders, sexual offences, fraud and dishonesty offences, breaches of probation, and charges of assault, assault occasioning grievous bodily harm, and charges relating to the death of a person.
Andrew attends Ward Keller’s Katherine office once a week to consult with clients and conduct appointments, also attending the Katherine Local Court for matters.
Andrew enjoys living in Darwin. ‘I enjoy the outdoors and the amazing national parks in the Northern Territory.’ When he’s not at work, he likes rugby union and supports the Queensland Reds.
