Client-focussed lawyers in Maitland

Andrew understands that when his clients contact his office they need the best legal support they can get.

Andrew’s team is committed to providing a professional and knowledgeable service to each of Andrew’s clients, who are treated with courtesy and respect.

Andrew Vile

Andrew is the principal of the firm and has been a fully qualified solicitor for almost 40 years after gaining his Bachelor of Legal Studies Degree from Macquarie University.  Prior to going to University, Andrew spent his formative years on a farm at Hillsborough (between Rosebrook and Lambs Valley).  His view on life is therefore very “grounded”.  This trait helps clients feel comfortable and at ease from the time they first meet Andrew.  He is also:

an Executive Committee Member of the Hunter Valley Law Society

a Board Member of the Hunter Region Business Hub

a Member of the Maitland Business Chamber

a Member of Maitland Rotary Club

a Member of West Maitland Centennial Lions Club

a past Board Member of the Maitland Benevolent Society

a past Board Member of Maitland Youth Express

Andrew has also, on many occasions, been happy to impart his knowledge (often with illustrative anecdotes) to various community groups eg Probus and Service Clubs.

Andrew On His Team:

Andrew cannot speak highly enough of Belinda and Kelly’s paralegal and people skills.  They are often the first point of contact with the firm and consistently provide exceptional assistance to clients, in a friendly manner but with professionalism and integrity.  Their day to day assistance to Andrew in the practice is invaluable and Andrew considers himself extremely fortunate to have  Belinda and Kelly’s manner, calibre and skill set.


The law is often a complicated process and it extremely important that communication is clear so that each party understands what is going on. At Vile & Vile, we make sure that our communication is always clear and our clients are being heard properly.
