Smart, clever, tech-savvy, and very professional
I've worked with Andrew on several matters, and referred work to him several times. He's hard working, very skilled, and enthusiastic about making use of technology to do a better job for his clients in the most efficient way possible. I can't say enough good things about Andrew. He's a rare kind of lawyer.

We keep him on retainer.
You may not think someone who bills himself as a virtual lawyer who represents small businesses and entrepreneurs is on the up-and-up. I wasn't sure when I first contacted Atty. Legrand through his website. He came to our house, sat at our dining room table, discussed what he could provide concerning registering our business, drawing up contracts, and providing us with a sound legal foundation from which we could grow our business. We hired him on the spot. While Atty. Legrand bills himself as a small business attorney, we asked him to take care of some of our other legal needs. He warned us beforehand that these were not his specialty, but he promised to do his best. His best is very, very good. He delivered beyond our expectations, and we are very comfortable with the result. Our interests are well protected due to Atty. Legrand's work on our behalf. We have dealt with other, more established, attorneys in the past. Nobody likes dealing with a lawyer. They are all sharks looking to gobble up chum and billable hours. Andrew Legrand is not like that. He defies stereotypes. He doesn't take advantage and do as little as possible to collect his fee. Sure, he is young, but he doesn't feel entitled to your business. He earns it. He does more than is expected, and what he delivers is as good as his word. His word is good. When Atty. Legrand promised something, we got more than we bargained for. This attorney has a bright future ahead of him, for the good of his clients, for the good of small business, and for the good of New Orleans. The city needs more attorneys like Atty. Andrew Legrand.

Excellent Choice
I recently had the pleasure of working with Andrew and couldn't have asked for anything more. He's very friendly, honest, and works hard to find the right solution for you. He always kept me informed and up to date with any progress. I would recommend him to anyone I know without hesitation. If I should ever require legal services again, he would be my fist call.
