Helpful and Informed Office Staff
I can not review the lawyer himself as we had no interactions, but the office staff was very knowledgeable about the types of cases this firm took and was quick to recommend another firm whom may be able to take my case. I appreciate the polite and informed professionalism with which my inquiry was handled.

Signed Contract Dispute
Andrew helped me with a contract dispute I had with the selling of my condo in St Louis. After backing out of an agreed upon sale just 48 hours prior to closing date and breaking signed agreement while refusing to pay out the required earnest money Andrew helped me file suit against said buyers. Extremely thorough and responsive to my situation, very good experience with a messy contract dispute.

Strong & Honest! Excellent Service!
Andrew is my number 1 pick and idol as a Lawyer. He owns his work and just in general conversation he loves his job with passion for all his clients. It means a great deal to myself to have someone I can trust that is on my side to give me a voice. My case is unique and very complicated workers compensation and more. We have been in this together as a team. Thank you Andrew Buchanan for being a great lawyer and impact on my life.
