Andy is a partner at the firm and a graduate of the University of Minnesota (B.A. 2001) and Mitchell-Hamline College of Law (J.D. cum laude 2005). He is admitted to practice in both Minnesota and North Dakota. Prior to law school, Andy worked in state politics at both the Minnesota Senate and the Attorney General’s Office.

Since joining the firm in 2005, Andy has become  known as a trial lawyer.  He’s tried jury trials all over Minnesota, from Detroit Lakes to Hastings, representing injured folks.  Andy also consults on insurance matters including Medicare and ERISA subrogation plans and handles social security disability claims as a part of his practice.

In addition, since 2008, Andy has continued to serve as an adjunct professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law in Minneapolis. He enjoys writing and serves as the co-editor of the Minnesota Motor Vehicle Accident Deskbook that is published annually by the Minnesota State Bar Association.  He’s also a frequent speaker regarding insurance related issues.

Some of his accomplishments include being named either a Rising Star or a Super Lawyer since 2011 by Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine, and in 2016, Andy was named as one of the “Attorneys of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer for his efforts with his partner Paul McEllistrem in obtaining a $5.5 million jury verdict in Hennepin County for a woman who was assaulted by a temp-employee.

Andy’s free time is spent with his family.  He has a wife and two sons.  The family live in the historic Crocus Hill neighborhood in St. Paul and are active in there community including their sons’ school, St. Thomas More.   He is also a well known supporter of the University of Minnesota athletics and is known to schedule vacations around home football and basketball games.  He claims he will be in Pasadena, California some sunny new year’s day to watch his beloved gophers represent as Big 10 champions.  His optimism is clearly…strong.
