Andrew is an experienced litigator who assists clients in diverse professional settings. He has litigated as plaintiff and defense counsel, in private practice and in-house with the government, and in union and non-union environments. He has prevailed in matters before various administrative tribunals, prevailed in arbitrations, tried cases in federal district court, and brought successful appeals to the 9th and 10th Circuits. Prior to earning his J.D., Andrew served as a business development and capture manager for a D.C. area government contractor. Specializing in employment discrimination and whistleblower matters, Andrew’s unique legal and business background allows him to quickly understand the goals and needs of his clients.
Andrew prides himself on being an effective communicator and his ability to quickly form positive connections with individuals from all walks of life. Andrew’s philosophy is the same whether he is speaking with federal judges and corporate executives, or pro se litigants and witnesses who have never ventured into the world of litigation. Be professional. Treat people with dignity. And, above all else, be yourself. A little self-deprecating humor doesn’t hurt either.

Andrew is an avid hiker, a mediocre handy-man, and an exceedingly poor golfer. When he’s not in the office, he’s likely exploring some backwoods trails with his wife and dog, cobbling together a table or some other wood-working project, or trying to improve his abysmal short game. A life-long Knicks fan, Andrew is not one to abandon ship when times get tough.
