  • Michael Siegfried Guntersdorfer

    I have known Andrew since the beginnings of his legal career. A former colleague at an IP boutique, Andrew has found his true calling in helping the accused and injured. His abilities can be gleaned from the results he achieves for his clients, but that he is also one of the most decent human beings I have known is something one has to experience personally and is an additional quality that is anything but given in his line of work.
