Andrew has adopted a holistic approach to helping his clients and understands that well-being extends beyond the number at the bottom of the jury verdict form.

When he isn’t serving his clients, Andrew enjoys movies, exercising, and cheering on the Florida Gators. He trains in Thai Chi, Kung Fu, and other martial arts.

Andrew was my personal injury lawyer. Not only did he take on my case when others rejected it, but truly cared about me, my my injuries and my well-being. Despite the process taking over two years, it was worth it, because Andrew won our case. He’s extremely professional and works incredibly hard to make sure his clients are taken care of and satisfied with the outcome of their case. Can’t recommend him enough.

Strongly Recommend
Andrew is a true professional and an aggressive advocate for his clients. At a time that was already stressful and taxing on my family Andrew made getting the proper treatment to recover and a fair legal settlement easy. his competence professional acumen enabled him to push back on the insurance companies to ensure I was well taken care of. I would never want anyone else to go through what my family did, but if they do they will want Andrew in their corner.

Outstanding Attorney
Andrew has consistently shown a dedication to his clients that is second to none. Professional and competent is every sense. Great Attorney with a sharp legal mind.

Sharp and Trustworthy Professional
I have served on a non-profit board with Andrew for 2 years and have come to know him quite well as an individual and professional. Andrew shows great dedication to his work, and I have used him on several occasions to review various personal documents and contracts for me, as well as contracts for our board. He is quite thorough in his reviews and recommends revisions that protect me (us) as his client.

Very helpful
I hired Andrew to review the documents for the short sale of my house. He was easy to contact, always responded promptly and was professional and courteous to work with. I would recommend him to friends and will use his services again in the future.
