About Andrea

Learn Andrea’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing law for more than ten years, focusing on real estate, construction, insurance coverage, and business matters. Most of my clients are homeowners, construction professionals, and small business owners. I started my career in litigation and appeals and added complementary transactional work to meet my clients’ needs.

I have represented individuals and businesses in matters involving non-compete agreements, stock-buyout agreements, shareholder disputes, zoning, construction delay, theft by contractor, misrepresentation, breach of contract, negligent construction, and homeowners and commercial general liability insurance coverage. I have helped my clients negotiate favorable settlements prior to trial, but I do not shy away from trial, having tried numerous cases to judges, juries, and arbitrators in several jurisdictions. My clients have praised my polished legal writing, my poise at trial and in court, and my skill in drafting effective legal contracts.

Before working as an attorney in private practice, I served as a law clerk for the Honorable Patricia D. McMahon (retired) in the Milwaukee County Circuit Court Civil Division, where I honed my research and writing skills and gained valuable insight in presenting winning arguments to judges. I graduated from Marquette University Law School, where I served as Managing Editor of the Marquette Intellectual Property Law Review. I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (go Badgers!).

I am deeply involved in supporting my community. I serve as Vice President of the Whitefish Bay Civic Foundation Board and actively participate in many favorite community events. I also enthusiastically volunteer as a coach for Girls on the Run of Greater Milwaukee, and you will often find me running at local 5k, half-marathon, and marathon races.

Business Owner
Andrea was outstanding to work with. She helped us navigate and negotiate an exit from our business. It was a very difficult situation and we were fortunate to have Andrea on our side. She is caring, ethical, hardworking, fair, and honest. We would use her again in a heartbeat.

GREAT OUTCOME
Andrea won a lawsuit for 14 very grateful home owners in Southern Wisconsin. In an emotional and polarized context, Andrea made great decisions, was not reactive and focused on a just outcome for her clients. She was responsive and communicative. I am grateful for the expert help from Murdock Law.
