Brilliant, Genuine and Amazingly Responsive
When I sat down with Josh I was immediately impressed with which he gathered and processed information, began researching additional facts and formulation of strategy. He was genuine, he didn't use coined phrases and most importantly he proved to me through our conversation he saw my case through my eyes. My problem was most important to me and it became equally important to Josh. Throughout my experience to the end, Josh was brilliant, true to character from our first meeting and his office was amazingly responsive. I had consulted with 3 attorneys and Thank God I chose Josh Andor.

Intelligent Professional
Mr. Joshua Frank Andor Is Amicus Attorney for my child, and I was afraid that rich opposing side will buy his opinion. It did not happen, and he professionally followed only the child's wish. Mr. Andor may seem to be little young at first, but his intelligence and law knowledge is very high, making him one of the most experienced attorneys in the area.

Child Custody & Divorce
Josh represented me in a child custody battle and divorce. He was awesome and very professional. He was very good at keeping me informed and answering all my questions. He was very understanding of my emotional state during my divorce and supportive too. He always stated the truth and provide me with all facts and options I had all throughout my divorce. He was very honest and fair on all my options and choices. I would recommended Josh for anybody . My children are safe and happy thanks to all Josh did for me and my family. Thank you!

Terrific and Available!
All cases lawyers work with are important to the client. But, I could tell my case was important to Mr. Andor, too. Always respectful and knowledgeable. He is really nice in the office, but can be...direct and tough in the courtroom. If you have a case that you really need to win, call Mr. Andor and his office. Great, great, great representation.

Fair, Honest, Personable and Knowledgeable
Josh was my representative in two Criminal Cases and a Civil Case this year. Needless to say, I had a lot riding on Josh. I'm one of those guys/clients that performs his due-diligence prior to making a purchase or entering into an agreement and I also set high-expectations of others so I may not be easiest client to deal with but Josh meet my initial criteria and surpassed my expectations! I don't envy his career as I think there are a lot of unscrupulous clients but Josh treated me and my case and everyone I ever saw him interact with in a respectful manner. He is very well liked and respected by his peers and Collin County Judiciaries/Personnel/Staff. Josh is well versed on local court practices, procedures and Law. He is compassionate, a people person, family man and down to earth. I was impressed by his candor. He is ethical and understood all the facts of my case (s). His billing is fair; not cheap but as the old basic rule of economics holds - you get what you pay for, so I'm glad I invested what I did given the outcome of my legal situation. I faced a Class B Felony Assault charge, Class A Misdemeanor and a Civil suit that involved CPS and the risk of losing custody of my children. Josh fought hard and given the facts I knew he couldn't perform a miracle but he delivered the next best thing. The Justice system isn't very kind to us if we have a history of getting in trouble, so we can't be unrealistic in our expectations....unless of course you're O.J. :) However, Josh managed to succeed in having my Misdemeanor dismissed, settled our Civil case outside of court with terms I agreed to and he negotiated what initially started out as an offer from the D.A.'s office to serve 5yrs in Prison + Felony Conviction to Deferred Adjudication + Probation! In closing, I'd like to share the following excerpt from a Lawyer's Blog that I came across online because we all tend to share this viewpoint when it comes to shopping for a Lawyer, I know I did. However, this describes the kind of Lawyer Josh Andor is NOT! (but, it does sound a lot like the guy my ex-wife hired. lol) Cheers! "Lawyers are some of the most disagreeable people you will meet. Law schools attract egomaniacs, narcissists, greedy people, and even snakes. We play mind games. We have no mercy. Some of us only care about money, not our clients. We are always posturing, posturing, posturing, and then we pound our chests."

Attorney Andor is a pitbull in the courtroom with lightning results! Aggressive, knowledgeable & absolutely the best!
I was looking for an attorney that was knowledgeable and aggressive with lightening results, a pit bull in the courtroom. I had a situation that had to be dealt with swiftly and carry a devastating blow to the other party, the opposition in my suit. I wanted an attorney to spank the other party & put them in their place. I wasn't looking for an attorney to sit back & milk me out of money, my retainer, while dilly dallying around. I needed effective swift representation to gain the advantage of a devastating first strike to leave the opposition with their head spinning in confusion. I needed an atomic bomb!!! When searching I consulted a very good close personal friend that happens to be a Collin County Judge for his recommendation. The Judges see the lawyers daily & their performance. The Judge referred me to Josh Andor. The Judge said this is the attorney to go to when you need results & you need them quick. Well, that was what I was searching for. I gave Attorney Andor a call. Went to his office. He heard the merits of the case. After the consultation Josh was hired. Attorney Andor & his assistant Jay are like the dynamic duo. Together they get results & they do it quick. Josh's assistant Jay does an excellent job keeping me updated. Things are going as planned. I am very glad to have found Attorney Josh Andor & his assistant Jay. The Judge was right! I will be back in the future to leave the final outcome of the case. At this time I am very satisfied.
