Author Information

Andrew Boe is a barrister with chambers in Sydney and Brisbane. His legal work has taken him to courtrooms across the Australian continent over a thirty-year career. His past cases have covered a wide spectrum. He has been retained by the most powerful and wealthy and has also represented the poor, homeless and vulnerable. He has represented a serial killer (Ivan Milat), vulnerable Indigenous people and communities (including Palm Island, Minjerribah and Yuendumu), members of outlaw motorcycle clubs and of the political class (for example, One Nation proponent David Ettridge, Indigenous MP Billy Gordon and self-proclaimed billionaire Clive Palmer), women who have been battered by their partners, men who have done the battering, as well as ordinary people drawn into the Australian criminal justice system. Andrew has written widely about criminal and social justice matters. The issues he was involved in concerning Palm Island are the subject of Chloe Hooper's THE TALL MAN and the SBS television documentary with the same title. His experience of Australian law is a unique one, but the issues he speaks of are necessary reading for all Australians. Andrew was born in Burma and arrived in Australia with his parents and four brothers in the late sixties as political refugees. He has six children. THE TRUTH HURTS is his debut literary work.
