Andrew “Andy” is originally from New York where his father was a lawyer. His two older brothers are lawyers in Texas.  He always knew he wanted to be a lawyer who tries cases. Little did he know, he would end up staying in New Orleans after marrying one of his classmates who was from here. Andrew graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in History from the University of New York at Albany. He went on to receive his Juris Doctorate with honors from Tulane University Law School in 1987. While at Tulane, Andrew acted as a Maritime Lawyer. Recently, he was accepted as member of the American Board of Trial Advocates.

Specializing in Toxic Tort, Products Liability, and Personal Injury cases, Andrew has tried a large number of cases with a high success rate. He has represented insurance companies and self-insured companies for 27 years. In Re FEMA Formaldehyde, he was the defense liaison counsel and lead trial lawyer for the target defendant, Gulf Stream. Andrew has been named one of the Top Lawyers according to New Orleans Magazine. He also has a Martindale-Hubbell AV rating of 4.9 on a 5.0 scale. In his spare time, Andrew has coached recreational and travel league baseball and softball for the past 17 years. It is something he truly loves.
