Effective and knowledgeable
Andrew provided me a time and cost-effective strategy to resolve a tech/business related issue. My goals were to protect my professional reputation and ensure information about me online was correct. He helped me achieve these goals, while putting the situation into perspective, which put me at ease (a skill only a few great attorneys possess). He would be my go-to expert in legal questions that involve technology and business matters.
