About Andrew

Learn Andrew’s areas of practice.

For the past 30 years Andy has been representing people who have suffered life-changing events through no fault of their own. He has represented clients injured as a result of aviation accidents, catastrophic automobile and truck collisions, medical malpractice, defective products, including prescription and over the counter medications, premises liability and police misconduct.

 

In order to consistently achieve the best results for his clients, Andy brings his ethic of hard work and sense of fairness to his representation. He strongly believes in the firm's credo that "the best interests of the client always comes first." It is this belief and sense of doing what is right that has led him to offer services to clients that go far beyond his office practice, including pro bono representation of victims of the 911 terrorist attacks, service on the Board of the Connecticut Traumatic Brain Injury Association and countless hours spent advocating for injured citizens before the state General Assembly.

 

Andy is proud to have been a trial lawyer for the past 30 years and has tried numerous cases in State and Federal courts in all areas of the State of Connecticut. He has served on the Board of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association for many years and was its president from 1998 to 1999. During his tenure with the Trial Lawyers Association, Andy has lectured at many seminars and has been involved in the association's efforts at community outreach and supported such initiatives as its Bicycle Helmet give away program to inner city children and its continuing education programs known as the People's Law School. Andy has also been an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Connecticut School of Law since 1988, teaching a course on trial advocacy to second- and third-year students.

 

Over the years, Andy has used his experience as a trial lawyer to achieve many favorable verdicts and settlements for his clients. Some of his more noteworthy and satisfying cases include obtaining settlements and verdicts that assured financial security for a father of two who was rendered a quadriplegic when struck by a teenage driver during a high speed police chase through city streets, obtaining compensation sufficient to meet the future needs of babies born with massive brain damage as the result of medical errors, securing sufficient funds to care for the needs of a young woman who suffered such devastating injuries in an automobile collision that she would never again be able to care for herself, helping many women injured by defective products like the Dalkon Shield intrauterine device and defective drugs such as DES. What keeps Andy going is knowing that he is helping those who are most in need level the playing field when dealing with large corporations or insurance companies.

 

In addition to his work with the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, Andy has been selected for membership in The American Board of Trial Advocates, which is limited to top trial lawyers in the country who are vigorously engaged in civil litigation. He is certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy, and has been listed as one of New England and Connecticut’s Super Lawyers since 2009, earning the designation as one of Connecticut’s Top 50 attorneys in 2011, 2012 & 2013. He is also a sustaining member of the American Association For Justice, a member and frequent lecturer for the Hartford County Bar Association. Andy was appointed to the Department of Motor Vehicle's Commissioner's Advisory Committee on Teen Safe Driving. Andy was elected a 2013 Fellow of the Connecticut Bar Foundation James W. Cooper Fellows Program.

Andy received his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia and his law degree, with honors, from the University of Connecticut School of Law.
