Andrew applies the lessons he has learned from litigating some of the nation’s most complex cases to craft creative and effective legal solutions for his clients’ most pressing legal needs.  Recognizing that problems must first be understood before they can be solved, Andrew works tirelessly to simplify even the most complex legal issues so that they are understandable and persuasive to judges and juries.
