An accomplished legal writer, as well as a seasoned and versatile trial lawyer, Andy has handled hundreds of legal proceedings, including depositions, hearings, arbitrations, mediations, trials, and appellate arguments, in state and federal courts. His cases have involved a wide range of legal issues in almost every field of law. He leverages his leadership skills to manage trial teams and develops creative litigation strategies tailored to the needs of each case. His guiding philosophy, after decades of learning from experience, is that the most valuable investment of time, in all phases of a case, is time spent getting to know clients and the personal histories they bring with them.
