I have worked with Andrea in digital technology, research and clinical legal education projects in the legal assistance sector. Andrea is a resourceful mentor and innovator, who inspires and supports teams with client-centered solutions to deliver excellence in legal practice. She has inspired me to be a lateral thinker in a world where law and technology can no longer live apart.

Andrea is a rare shining star in the legal industry. She is passionate towards driving legal innovation but also with a strong focus on improving social outcomes. She’s also great to work with so I encourage legal innovators and disruptors to lend her support in helping change the industry.

Andrea’s knowledge of the access to justice and legal tech space is spot on. Her insightful feedback and suggestions have been invaluable for myself and team ANIKA in developing and improving our prototype for the Global Legal Hackathon 2018 (and beyond!). Andrea has a wealth of knowledge and most importantly, she’s happy to share it! I can’t thank Andrea enough for her support thus far.
