Extremely Knowledgable
Andrew helped me through IP assignment negotiations in the upstream oil and gas industry. He helped me end up with a much better deal structure and legal protection. I highly recommend Andrew when choosing an attorney.

Professional Service
Andrew was very professional and we received a settlement quickly. We would not have been able to negotiate this as it was very personal and he negotiated a resolution without a law suit being filed.

"Over the past few years, I have been presented with legal issues that fall outside my specific practice area. Each time, I have referred the potential client to Andy. He handles each case, even the smallest one, with great care and attention. He also seems to have a wide breadth of legal knowledge, which allows him to handle a variety of cases. I highly recommend!"
