  • Matthew R. Henderson

    Andy is one of the brightest and most capable commercial litigators I have worked with. He is highly creative in his approach to litigation, and he is the first lawyer I think of when referring a case of that nature. Andy also has a broad transactional background enabling him to handle corporate, real estate, and estate planning matters. I enthusiastically recommend Andy as a highly qualified and aggressive litigator.
