"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
