I understand what our clients want: to win and/or the earliest possible ending to their dispute. Clients expect and deserve prompt service and my best efforts. My goal is to provide this service no matter how long it takes and how much is in controversy.

Andy is an accomplished trial attorney who has represented clients for more than 25 years in complex commercial and professional liability disputes, with a particular emphasis on legal and accountant professional liability, directors and officers liability, securities litigation, and employment-related disputes. He serves as the Chair of Reminger’s Legal Professional Liability, Financial Services Professional Liability and Miscellaneous Professional Liability Practice groups.

Andy has extensive trial experience in both state and federal courts, as well as extensive arbitration experience with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and administrative hearings nationwide. In his last ten FINRA arbitrations, Andy obtained eight defense awards and the two claimant awards were for only 3% and 9% of the amount demanded at closing.

Andy is a recognized “go-to” defense counsel who defends professionals and organizations accused of malpractice, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract fraud, and other types of misconduct. As a former insurance agent and licensed securities representative, he possesses significant knowledge of regulatory standards established by administrative entities that impact a number of professions that he represents, and he is also experienced in providing counsel an effective representation to those clients facing disciplinary proceedings and investigations.

Andy employs creative thinking and sound judgment in managing complex matters, keeping an eye on balancing results and the best strategies that align with the interests of his clients and the amount in controversy.

Andy is a frequent presenter to members of the insurance industry, the bar, and the financial services and real estate industries. He is a Past President of the Professional Liability Attorney Network and is a member of the Professional Lines Underwriting Society, and other legal and bar associations.

Testimonials

"I have worked with Andy for 15 years. He is a very effective and efficient attorney. He stays on top of his cases, and those cases that he is supervising. He provides accurate budgets and insightful and helpful claim reports. Andy knows how to resolve cases, how to litigate cases that cannot be resolved, and how to try and win cases. I have never been 'surprised' by a case being handled by Andy. He anticipates all of the positive and negative aspects of a case and reports this information on a timely basis so the case can be accurately reserved and resolved."
-Atea, Vice President
