About Andrew

Practice areas
  1. Litigation
    "Litigation" is a misunderstood specialty. it involves so much more than simply going into court and arguing a case. Litigation only occurs when you believe someone else owes you something and they disagree. The litigator's job is to get the evidence which will convince a judge or a jury that you are right. This is often an intensely adversarial process which takes a long time, which is why a litigator must be especially aggressive and committed to your cause.

  2. Health care
    Raise your hand if you think insurance companies are charitable institutions? Obviously they are not - they are in fact entities dedicated solely to earning massive amounts of profit. The main way they accomplish this goal is by doing everything they can to avoid providing the product they have been paid to provide. A large part of my practice is dedicated to stopping insurance companies from cheating anyone.

  4. Car accident
    "Accident" is often a misnomer. obviously (most) people do not intend to cause a car crash. But when crashes occur, it is almost always because someone made a deliberate choice, either by texting or fiddling with the radio or eating or doing any of the other millions of things we do in our cars which distract us from the task at hand. The consequences of a car crash are often devastating - serious physical injuries, emotional distress, enormous expense. Insurance companies do not care.

Andrew P. Baratta (Andy) is a partner in the firm. In addition to having obtained seven figure recoveries for his injured clients, Andy is regularly retained by medical providers around the country who treat injured accident victims and who find themselves targeted by insurance companies with false accusations of fraud.

Andy believes his mission as a lawyer is to fight for every resource needed by our injured clients to get their lives back. Ensuring full and unfettered access to quality medical care of their choosing is a critical component of this responsibility. Unfortunately, in the never-ending quest to devalue injury claims in order to earn obscene profits, insurers have devised sophisticated schemes to undermine the credibility of injured victims by attacking the doctors who treat them with phony allegations of “predetermined” or “non-individualized” treatment. On behalf of doctors all over the country, including Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Kentucky, Nevada, California, Idaho, Washington, Texas, and Minnesota, Andy has aggressively fought these schemes in cases involving every major insurance carrier, securing tens of millions of dollars for doctors unfairly targeted by them.

Andy is Philadelphia born and bred, attending St. Joe’s Prep High School, the University of Pennsylvania, and Temple Law School. Andy is a proud former member of Penn Basketball teams that went undefeated in the Ivy League his junior and senior seasons and were nationally ranked. Andy was twice voted by his teammates as the team’s Most Inspirational Player and, in his senior year, was honored by the Philadelphia Big 5 sportswriters with the Harry Merrill Sportsmanship Award.

After graduating from Temple Law School, Andy served as an Assistant District Attorney in Delaware County for three years where he prosecuted all manner of crime, from Juvenile delinquency up to and including Capital Murder. After leaving the D.A.’s Office, Andy spent a year working for a mid-sized center city firm specializing in civil litigation matters before joining his brother Tony in January of 2002.

In addition to his work as a lawyer, Andy is an accomplished writer. His first novel, What Color Justice, was published in 2005. Andy is also the founder of Phuture Phantoms Youth Basketball, a youth basketball program for kids in the Phoenixville Area School District.

Andy’s happiest accomplishment in life is his family. His wife, Noelle, is a high school guidance counselor and they are the proud parents of Deacon and Kayden. Andy and his family make their home in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.

Fantastic representation
I could not have asked for a better attorney. He was always available to answer any and all of my questions timely. Every step along the way, I was kept informed of the progress, promises were maintained, copies of communication were conveyed...I could not have asked for more! I sincerely appreciate all of the help and professionalism shown by Mr. Baratta.

A great ally
Hiring Andy is the best decision one can make when hiring an attorney. In truth, Andy's skills extend beyond the law. He is as much an advisor as he is an attorney, and I value his input on just about every matter with which I'm confronted. In short, I can't make any more ringing an endorsement for ANY advisor.

I have nothing but positive comments to say about working with Andy!
It was a difficult time for my husband and I. We weren't looking for an attorney but following a tragic car accident that left me with a serious traumatic brain injury, Andy was our man. We had known him personally for a few years and trusted him as a friend and felt it would be good to have someone like him on our side. Little did we know, Andy proved to be a great asset during a challenging time. He took care of everything so we could focus on my recovery. Andy checked in frequently and provided a supportive ear to my husband. He worked efficiently and quickly responded to any of our questions, no matter how small. Andy demonstrated a great knowledge for any legal matter and knew what needed to be done in our case. Because of Andy's hard work, I am still able to work on my recovery despite the effects of my injury. We continue to consult Andy for any legal matters that arise. Andy is the only attorney I want on my side!

Construction Claim Review
Working with Andrew was an absolutely pleasure. Aside from his professionalism, he was easy to work with and took a personal approach to our case. We worked with Andrew as part of a claim against a construction company, which was violating the terms of our contract and was executing the project at a sub-par standard. Andrew was able to quickly, and efficiently help us resolve the manner and assisted us with getting just compensation. Thank you Andrew for all your help - we will certainly be looking to use your services in the future, should the situation arise.

Trustworthy, Professional and Resolves Issues Quickly so you can Move Forward with your Life
Andy is by far the best attorney I've worked with. He is extremely professional, trustworthy and direct. There are so many lawyers in the world today that it can be difficult to choose one. When I enlisted Andy's help, it was a very stressful time in my life. My top priority was finding a lawyer who I could trust to handle my situation professionally and quickly. He was incredibly responsive and handled all of my legal issues within a very quick timeframe. Andy is a lifesaver and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney!

One of the best people I have ever met
Andrew is a knowledgeable lawyer who works hard to have the best decisions of his clients' cases. He quickly solved my problem, and explained me my rights and responsibilities. I often refer the clients' of my agency to his firm, and sometimes assist with interpretation during the first appointments. Andrew always demonstrates deep interest to a case, and realistic in its outcome. He respects his clients, and keeps them informed on every step he takes with his/her case. As Executive Director of a non-profit organization that provides literacy and social services for immigrant and educationally disadvantaged citizens, I feel privileged to have him on the Board of Directors.

My criminal defense attorney
It is a priviledge to know Andrew Baratta. I hired him as my criminal defense lawyer about 10 years ago. Throughout the whole criminal process he offered legal counsel to me in my best interests. He demonstrated extensive knowledge of the law to safeguard my constitutional rights. He spent a vast amount of time gathering evidence from police reports and utilized the expertise of psychiatrists, psycologists and immigration lawyers to assist me. He kept me informed throughout the process. He was commited to fighting for my rights and limiting the impact of criminal charges. Andrew is a passionate and highy skillful attorney. He has a highly trained legal staff as well. I have always been impressed by his professionalism.

"It is a unique situation when a lawyer needs to hire their own lawyer. Those are the circimstances that brought me to Andy Baratta. After many years of having my own successful practice with another attorney, I hired Andy to handle the dissolution of my law practice. This was a very difficult time for me and Andy wasn't only a great lawyer, he was a kind man. His knowledge of the law and dedication to my case gave me comfort and confidence during a very trying time. Although I live several hours from his practice, I was so impressed with his work ethic, I have asked him to work with me on other cases. Trust me, you want him at your table if you're in court! I would whole heartedly recommend Andy Baratta to anyone."
