About Andrea

Learn Andrea’s areas of practice.

RESPONSIVE, PREPARED AND TENACIOUS BOARD CERTIFIED FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY.

Andi truly believes that the best way to end a marriage, or resolve a dispute between people who have been in a relationship, is by reaching an agreement so that an already strained relationship does not become damaged further by the intensity of the litigation process. But not every case settles. That is why Andi engages in thorough preparation: so that if a case must be tried, it is tried well.  Working hard to settle a case while being thoroughly prepared to try the case in court is the pinnacle of effective lawyering to which Andi strives with the help of her able paralegals and assistants.

Andi has a penchant for the tough custody cases,  and has tried many in her 19 year career. She also enjoys the rigor of a good property case that focuses on valuing business entities, tracing separate property and/or interpreting premarital agreements.  She enjoys helping people during this turbulent time by offering them information, guidance and compassion as they make important decisions about their futures. 

Andi’s dad is a doctor and her mom is a nurse, so they clearly care about people (and are averse to lawyers.) Andi found her way to law school through her shared desire to help people. She wanted to work with people, not for corporations (and definitely not in medical malpractice.) Family law was a natural fit that allowed her to spend her day with individual people as clients.

Andi hales from northwest Indiana (the Region). She attended Munster High School (National Speech Champion in 1990), Miami University in Ohio for her bachelor’s degree and Valparaiso University School of Law. She did not return to the mid-west after coming to Texas for her law school internship in Austin in 1998 and found that she was not a lonely transplant. Midwesterners are everywhere, y’all.

She was effective in transplanting her husband, Christopher, from Indiana in 2003. She later persuaded her parents to relocate to Texas by having two children. They all happily reside in Lockhart, Texas, just 30 miles south on 183 where the barbeque roams. Her children share in her passion for physical activity and performing arts; so there are a lot of dance, singing and theatre classes being coordinated on the official family calendar.

As good as they come
Ms. St. Leger was my attorney for a divorce and custody case and ensuing modification. I felt she represented me as the father very well: better than I could have imagined, in fact. She kept me informed, worked tirelessly with her team, researched issues, and proposed creative ideas. (She even lost sleep over my case I'm afraid!) She was conscious of my budget, and careful to find a balance between too many and not enough billable hours--which I really appreciated. She was my "counsel" in both senses of the word. I would have been lost without her!

Excellent, Dedicated Lawyer
Andi helped through a difficult separation, which involved custody issues as well as a shared business and shared property. I really appreciated her honest and thorough legal advice, and she was very caring as well. The hardest part for me was definitely the custody issues, and I liked that she was an expert in that area. We went to court several times on the custody issues, and she was always very prepared and had convincing arguments. I liked that she was assertive and got her points across without being needlessly mean to my ex. She was a strong advocate for me and my children, and I felt like she was dedicated to getting a good outcome for us. She was also able to take care of my business and property issues as well and gave me great advice on that too. I highly recommend her, and I had a much better outcome than I had hoped for when I started the process.

The most competent lawyer I know. (and I know a lot) (and she's fantastic human being to boot.)
I spent years and years going up and down in my marriage. I engaged her services back in 2014 when I filed for divorce. We ended up going to marriage counseling and not getting divorced. Later after several more years everything went downhill again and I filed for divorce again and she was there to help again. We went through the entire process and are divorced with all property, custody issues etc. settled and done. I can tell you that there is no more competent, caring family law professional in the State of Texas. She almost left practice to become a Judge, but thankfully she did not. If you are lucky enough for her to agree to represent you, count your blessings because you could not have done better. That is not hyperbole, those are the cold hard facts of the case. Thank you Andi, you are the best. Brian.

Strong representation and solid tactician
And did a great job of listening to my concerns, developing a game plan for the case, expertly guiding me through the process and preparing me for potential outcomes. She's good at working collaboratively with opposing attorneys, but at the same time, will push hard to move things forward when necessary. When the opposing counsel was stalling in my case, Andi was very adept at tactically adjusting our approach and making things move forward. I'm sure my case would have gone on longer than a year, but she was able to get it done within six months of the initial filing. I'd absolutely recommend her.

Andi is the best!
Andi is professional, caring, straight forward, and extremely knowledgeable. I knew I was in good hands the first time we met. She was recommended to me by a friend who had also worked with her and had a successful outcome. She is highly ethical and truly took the time to understand what I needed. She also answered my questions honestly when she knew I may have been looking for a different answer. I appreciated her approach and it helped to prepare me for different probable outcomes. It is evident through her work that she has a great deal of experience and it showed when it was time to settle my case. She was also very patient with me when I waffled on decisions and I never felt rushed, over charged, or like I was being bothersome when I had 'one more question'. She even went to court with me on her birthday (which I found out by chance). I was very grateful to have her represent me and would recommend her time and time again. She is top notch in every way. Thank you, Andi!

Excellent Lawyer
Andi really helped me through an extremely difficult time. She laid out all the pros and cons with each decision and moved at the pace that I needed to move. Divorce is never fun yet it helps tremendously when you have someone who is a straight shooter and tells it to you like it is so you can make informed decisions and get the job done. I would use Andi again and strongly recommend her.

Professional, dilligent and accessible
Andi has helped me through my initial divorce settlement and subsequent revision of the agreed orders a few years later. In all dealings with her she has been available to discuss time-sensitive issues, has shown an uncanny ability to retain details (which has spared me time not having to review previously discussed material), and is highly effective without begin offensive. She is personable and easy to talk to, and relates to issues from a human perspective as well as legal.
