About me

Andy is a partner in the Huntington, WV office.  He has focused his professional career on defending businesses, various county and State agencies, insurance companies and their insureds in civil litigation matters in West Virginia and Ohio.


Andy has successfully defended and prosecuted cases in Courts throughout West Virginia and Ohio. Beginning in 2009 he has been recognized annually as a "Rising Star" in the publication West Virginia Super Lawyers.  In addition, in 2015 he was selected by the American Society of Legal Advocates as a “Top 40 Under 40 Litigation Lawyer” in West Virginia.  Membership in the society comprises less than 1.5% of all licensed lawyers in the United States, and selection results from a process that consists of a rigorous multi-stage review conducted by independent lawyers 


A native of Ironton, Ohio, Andy graduated magna cum laude from Marshall University in 2000 with a bachelor's degree in journalism, specializing in public relations. He continued his studies at the University of Kentucky College of Law, obtaining a Juris Doctor degree in 2003. During law school, he served as vice president of the Moot Court Board, was awarded best oral argument in his first-year writing club and received the CALI award for a seminar in property topics during his third year.


Andy was admitted to practice before the West Virginia State Bar and United States District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia in 2003, and the Ohio State Bar in 2009.  He holds active memberships in the West Virginia State Bar, Ohio State Bar Association, Cabell County (WV) Bar Association, Lawrence County (OH) Bar Association, Defense Trial Counsel of West Virginia, DRI and Claims & Litigation Management Alliance.


Currently, he resides in Proctorville, Ohio, with his wife Deanna and children Gavin, Mason, Aidan and Lacey, where he serves as the municipality’s Village Solicitor.
