Great lawyer
Paul was referred to me from another attorney. Paul and his team were very attentive, experienced, patient, understanding and most of all efficient. He immediately understood my problem and took care of it within one week. I highly recommend Paul and his firm.

Estate eviction
Paul did a great job! We had a difficult situation with an estate eviction. He picked up immediately on our discomfort about having to evict this person. He guided us through all the legal issues all the while staying sensitive to the problem but getting it done in a very timely manner which was also very important . I would highly recommend him and would definitely use him again.

Paul Andrew Solid, Reliable, professional
Paul Andrew is a good man and a fantastic attorney. I have worked with Paul on multiple occasions and have nothing but respect and admiration for Paul Andrew and his team. I cant begin to brag on the principles and performance that Paul and his Team exert in the practice of their craft of law. I would also like to comment on the strong degree of knowledge Paul possesses and how well he is able to make things happen when you need a win on any element of whatever needs to be executed professionally and precisely. Thank you Paul for your diligence and for your personal attention and detail oriented services for the many times you have helped me when the need for legal council is needed. sincerely Tom

Paul E Andrew, a Great, Genuine Attorney
Mr. Paul Andrew assisted me in incorporating a business, and resolving a couple of legal issues within the past year (2016), and I will continue to call on him when I need expert legal counsel. He has always been honest, thorough, and above board, and his fees were very reasonable for the service that he provided. He explained his fee structure up front, so there were no surprises. He always responded promptly to my phone calls or emails, and he followed through with whatever was needed to get the job done. In my opinion, he is not only professional, but he is also genuine. Not only will I continue to use him, but I highly recommend him to anyone that requires an attorney specializing in his area of law.

A Homeowner Association's Relationship with Paul E. Andrew
Paul Andrew has provided legal services to our Homeowners Association ("HOA") for 11 years. He expertly guided the Board of Directors in amending our Covenants and By-Laws, drafted the amendments, and processed and filed the final documents according to state and county requirements. He advised us on the development of operating procedures and enforcement of rules and regulations. His counsel and assistance demonstrate a thorough knowledge of state law as well as case law as they apply to HOAs. He has assisted us in negotiating agreements between owners and tenants and with optional procedures for collecting delinquent accounts. In the few matters that required a court hearing, he was well-prepared and successfully represented our HOA. Further to his legal competence, he is personable and gifted at establishing rapport with others. He always responds to our needs in a timely manner. He is a consummate professional. We value our attorney-client relationship with Paul Andrew and recommend him without reservation.

Have been very pleased with his efforts . easy to work with and has been staying on the case for as long as it took to get results. I do not believe that we could have gotten another lawyer to be as persistent as he has been. If I needed a lawyer I would highly recommend him.

Great lawyer!
Paul Andrew represented myself and my company in a recent lawsuit. From the initial consultation to the settlement Paul handled my case with honesty and professionalism. Paul was always prompt to answer any of my questions or concerns throughout the process. Most importantly Paul was always conscious of the cost of the lawsuit and advised me accordingly. After 16 months the lawsuit was resolved with a positive outcome. I would not only recommend Paul Andrew as an attorney but will use him for any future legal needs with my business.

Paul above all is honest, straight forward, and hard working. I have been impressed by his insights and ability to get to the truth. He has been diligent in helping me resolve the issues as they have risen and put the priorities where they belong. I have recommended him and will continue to recommend him.

Hired to represent a real property issue. After reviewing the case, he informed us the he was confident in handling our case and took a large amount of money up front. Subsequently, he did not do much, and after exhausting the large deposit, informed us that we did not have a case, and argued with us, thus escalating his cost, and doing nothing! He refused to work our case, but he needed to get paid. His friend and so-called expert witness did little to nothing as well. Meanwhile, they basically went back and forth, and accomplished nothing. After the belittling, reluctant and argumentive behavior, he was fired. We had been reluctant in viewing the property in question and both he and his expert witness refused to open the foundation, which later revealed the facts that were needed. Some attorneys will fight for you. This one will fight for himself and his monetary gain, thus leaving you broke and empty. Not much if your serious about winning your case. In the end, we discovered that the last two prior owners knew well of the property issues, and that's why they sold the property under false pretenses. Unfortunately, Paul Andrews was the wrong counsel.
