I am W. Andrew (Andy) Arnold. I am a litigator, who has practiced law for over 17 years. Helping people fight back against those who hurt them, fire them or treat them unfairly is my passion.
I am a Furman University graduate. I graduated law school from the University of South Carolina in 1992. After two years with a large labor law defense firm, I left to start my own practice. My practice began as an employment and business litigation practice, which has represented plaintiffs and defendants in federal and state courts. However, I have litigated all sorts of cases, including nursing home neglect cases, defamation claims, consumer fraud cases under the unfair trade practice act, fraud and breach of contract claims. I handle noncompete cases, civil rights cases, and serious personal injury cases.
I have also argued appeals to both the South Carolina Supreme Court, the South Carolina Court of Appeals and the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.
I perform a full ranged of legal services for business, including drafting and reviewing employment contracts, and severance agreements. In addition to being a lawyer, I am also a certified mediator.
