About Andrew

Learn Andrew’s areas of practice.

Andrew T. Hibbert is a lifelong Floridian who was born in Orlando and then grew up in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. After graduating high school, Andrew went back to Orlando to attend the University of Central Florida. It was during his freshman year when Andrew took his first law class, and immediately found his calling, criminal defense. After majoring in pre-law at UCF, Andrew attended Stetson University College of Law in St. Petersburg, to pursue his law degree.

Andrew interned at a criminal defense firm in Bradenton while attending Stetson Law. He credits this experience as not only fueling his fire for criminal defense, but also exposing him early in his career to everything from DUI cases to briefs for the Second District Court of Appeals. Andrew began his career defending those accused of crimes in Bradenton and Sarasota immediately after he graduated law school in 2011. It was just two years later that Andrew and Colleen formed their partnership and opened their Sarasota office. Throughout his legal career, Andrew has only handled criminal cases because that is his true passion, and it shows. His unwavering commitment and dedication to his clients are beyond contestation. Andrew thrives in the courtroom and is a true example of what hard work, dedication and aggressive representation should look like in a lawyer. A fiery advocate, he settles for nothing less than the best result for all our clients.

Andrew also stays loyal to his alma mater and attends most UCF home football games. It was at one football game in September of 2010, when Andrew met Rachel, his wife since 2013. In his free time Andrew enjoys spending time with Rachel and their son Brandon. He loves to travel, go to local breweries and can be found cheering on his fantasy players throughout the entire football season.

The best hands down
I heard about him through a friend so I decided to give him a try and so glad that I did very straightforward. Will let you know if you can help or not and if it hired, he communicates very well answers any questions and gets the job done definitely will not go to if Everett needed anything but great Lawyer thanks for everything.

Trust the process
HIGHLY recommend Atty Hibbert for ALL your criminal defense needs. Couple of highlights for my experience were: Man of his words, Honest, Fair, Went above and beyond and very knowledgeable. We didn't feel rushed to hire him after our consultation. He didn't make any promises he couldn't keep and at the end of the day, he did exactly what we wanted/needed him to do. Don't hesitate. Call them today!

All I Could Ask For And More!
For anyone in need of legal help that is lucky enough to stumble across this man consider yourself lucky! From start to finish he fought tooth and nail to make sure that my case was resolved in the best way possible. I also never would’ve imagined I’d find someone to work this hard for such a reasonable price. I can definitely say that if I ever need an attorney again (as much as I hope that I do not) he will be my first and only call. Highly recommend

He’s a machine
Best representation I’ve seen by far, he was aggressive, firm, fired back at the prosecution without once looking at his notes.

BEST ATTORNEY EVER!!!
Wow. Where do I even begin?? So this unfortunately wasn’t my first time in legal trouble or retaining an attorney. However, this was the first time that not only was I satisfied by my attorney, but BLOWN AWAY!! I was incarcerated and the day before my court date my mother retained Andrew Hibbert. He immediately came up to see me in person before my court hearing - letting me know that he was retained and the next steps we were going to take. My process was not an easy one by any means- we were facing many obstacles between a VOP, new charges, and an original charge carrying minimum 4 years. Prison seemed liked the only answer I was going to get, and then only answer/solution the public defender was giving me before this meeting with Andrew. He fought and fought for me for MONTHS- in negotiations with the state attorney, hiring outside investigators and specialists, mental health doctors- the whole nine. Not only was he constantly taking action, but he also CONSTANTLY informed me of what was going on every single step of the way. He would come to see me in jail to give me updates so I wasn’t just sitting there wondering and fearing the unknown. He was in consistent contact with my family on the outside, reassuring them of what was going on and what options we were looking at. Yes, you heard me right… an attorney that ACTUALLY returns your calls and gives you updates without having to constantly harass to try to get ahold of. He actually looks at you as a person, not for the mistake you made. He will fight for you, he cares. He wants the best for you. He will also tell you the truth and how it is. I’ve had attorneys before that would promise me they could do something, take my money, and then not follow through with said promise. It was a money grab for them. Andrew is the opposite of this- he informed me of the real possibilities/realities of what I could be facing- but did promise that even though he could not predict what the outcome could be- with his knowledge, negotiation, skill, and experience- that he thought we had a chance. He literally blew me away with the representation he gave me. I don’t have any words besides THANK YOU, ANDREW! Thank you for taking on this challenge, thank you for reassuring my family and myself through this entire process of everything happening and keeping in contact. Thank you for not judging me by my mistakes, but making it where I have a chance to correct them. THANK YOU FOR FIGHTING FOR ME! You have given me another chance at life with my children, and a life where I can be my best self. Just thank you, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. If anyone has felt the uneasiness of having to hire an attorney and not being sure who to go for- IM TELLING YOU- Andrew Hibbert is the one for the job. You will not be disappointed, you will also be blown away. I promise you that. It’s been months since signing my deal and I’m still completely blown away and grateful he was the attorney I went with every single day… and I feel like I will be grateful for him for the rest of this new chance at life I now have. Again, thank you.

Best attorney ever!!
I hired Andrew from Colleen Glenns law firm, and it was the best decision I ever made. He went above and beyond for not only the criminal case I hired him for but he also put in a ton of extra work helping me get my drivers license back! He was always professional but friendly and what surprised me the most is he replied to my messages even after work hours! I know they are extremely busy but he made himself Available to answer all of my annoying questions, and to offer me advice. If you are having legal problems and you an attorney HIRE THIS GUY! You’ll get A+ service I promise you will not regret it

Quick, professional and communicative
I unfortunately found myself is a bit of trouble on vacation in Lido Beach Florida (Sarasota). I was looking for representation & came across Andrew Hibbert. This firm came highly recommended on many online websites & forums. I decided on two firms but never needed to call the other attorney. During my first conversation with Andrew (he doesn’t like to be referred to as Mr. Hibbert lol) it was obvious that I had found an attorney that was very witty and very good at what he did. Moral of the story for a very fair price (cheap if you factor in time) he had my case dismissed within 9 days.. NINE days. Thanks Andrew

Excellent service
Andrew is thorough and made me feel secure throughout my proceedings. He communicated regularly, took time to options and timeline to me and was personable and pleasant to deal with. I rarely had to show up to appearances as he took care of it. He also guided me through the traffic process. He really made my family and I feel really safe and secure throughout the process and we never felt any uncertainty about my situation. I couldn’t recommend his services more.
