Andrew S. Gustafson attended U.C. Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall), where he was a Managing Editor of the Berkeley Journal of Employment and Labor Law. He received his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University, majoring in History and minoring in Philosophy. He graduated magna cum laude from BYU. While at BYU, Andrew was the founder and president of the BYU Speech and Debate Club and participated in the BYU Honors Program.

In 1999, Andrew practiced corporate law and litigation as an associate at Gagen McCoy, an Martindale-Hubbell A-rated firm. However, it wasn’t long before he recognized that corporate law was not his passion. So, in 2001, he founded Lincoln Law, a firm focused on providing effective consumer law solutions for those in need.

Andrew has been active in many legal organizations including the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (“NACBA”), National Association of Consumer Attorneys (“NACA”), the ABA section of Business Law and the Utah Bar Bankruptcy Section.  In addition, Andrew is a member of the elite American Consumer Bankruptcy College (“ACBC”) and regularly hosts the American Consumer Bankruptcy College winter meetings. He is currently licensed to practice law in both Utah and California.

In addition to his legal experience, Andrew has has a keen interest in the use of technology to provide legal consumer solutions.  He created both the Debtor Education and Certification Foundation (“DECAF”) and Money Management International Bankruptcy.org consumer education programs.  These programs have provided over 1 million hours of debtor education and credit counseling. He was instrumental in the development of BK Express, and a number of additional consumer law and consumer bankruptcy products.  Andrew created an educational website for loan modification clients, http://mmiphases.com/, which was the first of its kind and was jointly funded by Household Bank, Money Management International and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Andrew also created the prototype for BKExpress, the number one selling case management program for bankruptcy attorneys and widely used throughout the country.

Andrew’s passion for innovation has spurred the creation of his own consumer rights software development company, CounselNow. When he’s not in the office working on a case, or spending time with his family, he continues to implement new services and products to benefit his colleagues, clients and the community.

Outstanding!
Andrew and the entire staff at Lincoln Law are compassionate and knowledgeable. Before working with Lincoln Law I was afraid to consider bankruptcy... Now I know the truth about bankruptcy - what a relief! If you think you're above filing bankruptcy - FORGET THE RUMORS! Get on the phone and call Lincoln Law and let them set the record straight. I highly recommend this firm to anyone struggling with debt.
