Ms. Hirsch specializes in family law because she believes it is a chance to use her legal expertise to help individuals in the time of their greatest need. Solid legal counsel regarding a client’s rights and possibilities during this process can ease the mental and emotional strain it entails.
She has practiced family law since 1996. She has extensive experience litigating and negotiating all aspects of family law cases. Trained in mediation and collaborative law as well, she has actively promoted these forms of alternative dispute resolution. While some sharply contested cases must go to court, many other cases can benefit from an alternative procedure that reduces expenses, avoids protracted proceedings, and makes it much likelier to reach a settlement that works in the long term.

I endorse this lawyer. Andrea is a very experienced family lawyer who has taken the lead in offering the collaborative approach as an option for her clients. Although Andrea strongly believes in the collaborative approach, she recognizes that it is not the best approach for every family matter. Andrea is skilled at evaluating a case and helping a client determine the best approach for the client. Andrea is accomplished in mediation, negotiation and trial litigation, as well as collaborative. Andrea provides top notch representation to her clients.
