good analytical and people skills
Andrew has demonstrated the ability to pinpoint issues and solve problems in criminal, family, business, and securities laws. He is a go-to lawyer when a person wants to define and reach goals. I'm the type of person who wants things done right, which makes Andrew a good fit for me. I trust what he tells me.

Great Legal Advice
Andrew provided excellent legal advice concerning my job, my marriage, even my kids. I always count on Andrew for straightforward answers, without the emotional twist that most family or "friends" give. I highly recommend Andrew.

Andrew has done legal work for me and my business for over a decade. Andrew has helped me accomplish countless strategic business deals with companies all over the country. He is easy to talk to and great to work with. For many, many years and even today, I trust Andrew regularly to give me sound legal advice so I can make good decisions on contracts, business legal matters, and federal communications legal matters. Andrew also is very smart on every level; he is incredibly motivated and creative. Andrew has come through every single time to help my business save and make money while also protecting against litigation. Andrew is very experienced in complex business transactions and also in negotiations. Andrew’s verbal and written communication skills are outstanding. I highly recommend Andrew and his law firm for any task at hand.

Andrew is an Outstanding Attorney, Highly Recommend Him
Andrew represented me in a real estate matter, and he also resolved a contract matter. He did a fantastic job with both. He stayed in touch with me throughout the representation and made sure I was up to speed along the way. Andrew is personable, down to earth, and his advice is very thoughtful. I was fully satisfied with his services and would hire him again. I highly recommend Attorney Andrew Tolchin.
