Biggest thing for me was the fact that I felt protected with Andy, I trusted him. Not only was he honest and affordable, but most importantly he was smart, effective and got me everything I wanted and more. I got my 3 beautiful boys as much as possible, which was all I truly wanted! I liked Andy from beginning to end, I would hire him all over again if I had too. I was scared, over whelmed, and confused. Andy was ALWAYS there for me, email, text, phone,etc......... I am willing to answer any question to help making a decision. ANDY IS THE BEST! His whole crew is the best and still are even after divorce finalized.

After interviewing a handful of lawyers, I hired Andy to handle my divorce. From the beginning, he was clear, direct, and helpful. My now ex- was manipulative and bullying throughout, and I always felt like Andy had my back. He was assertive without being being more aggressive than was necessary, which would have further inflamed the situation. He could have dragged things out a lot longer, but was clear with me about my options. I was clueless and overwhelmed going in, and Andrew was a much needed and powerful advocate.

Finding Andy as an attorney was a gift after several really poor experiences with other attorneys. Andy is extremely knowledgable, empathetic to your situation and is solution and resolution orientated all while supporting his client. I could not ask for a better experience! My situation was originally a very complicated and tense divorce situation and Andy jumped in after another attorney and resolved the matters after being in court for nearly 2 years - Andy is conflict resolution oriented and if a settlement is possible Andy will help both sides control their emotions and simply deal with the situation more logically and in my case was mostly about money! Andy is simply the best and anyone who is looking for attorney can rest easy if they retain Andy has it helps de-stress situations and resolves them! This Attorney represents the profession with the class, dignity and respect that other Attorney's can aspire to be! If you hire Andy you are in great hands and will have little to worry about - interacting with Andy has been one of the best experinces I have ever had with an Attorney and would recommend him highly if you need your stress lowered, your situation resolved and it not costing your house to do so! He's the best - hire with confidence from an Attorney who actually cares about his clients!

He is a bright, sensitive, caring and thorough professional in the family law area. He is also a classy and wonderful human being. I strongly endorse Andrew.
