He also routinely handles medical malpractice and other complex serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. He is a member of the Florida Justice Association and the Central Florida Trial Lawyers Association.
Andrew graduated from the University of Florida with a B.S.B.A in 2000 and from Stetson University College of Law, With Honors (Top 5%), in 2003. While in law school, Andrew was an accomplished member of the Trial Team, Moot Court and the Stetson Law Review. Since shortly after beginning his career as a lawyer, Andrew has limited his practice to prosecuting complex cases for consumers who sustained life altering injuries.
Through his work as an advocate for the injured, Andrew has developed not only a national reputation as an aggressive, hard-working, talented and gifted advocate, but also as someone who is unwilling to compromise his extremely high ethical and professional standards in the heat of battle. In addition to multiple seven-figure verdicts, Andrew has successfully recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for his clients on cases involving defective products, medical negligence, complicated liability, and catastrophic injury and wrongful death.
Since 2009, he consistently has been recognized as a Florida Super Lawyers Rising Star™ and one of the Florida Trend’s Legal Elite Up & Comers™.
As a husband and the father of two amazing children, Mackenzie and Reed, Andrew understands that nothing is as important as his responsibility to honor and protect the welfare of his family. Likewise, when Andrew takes on the role as the lawyer for a particular client, he honors the client in every interaction and works tirelessly to ensure the client receives the maximum amount of money available so that they are able to provide for their future needs and the needs of their family.
