  • Chad Jonathan Lee

    I have the distinct privilege of knowing and working with Andrew for the past ten years. Andrew exudes professionalism, diligence and confidence. He is a devoted advocate, and treats every matter seriously and respectfully. Andrew's real strength lies not only in his intellectual prowess in the natural resources arena, but also in his creative problem solving, which allows him to uniquely achieve results for his clients. Perhaps his best trait, though, is his personable nature. It is a pleasure to know and recommend Andrew.
