Andy is a partner at the law firm of McEllistrem Fargione, P.A. and a graduate of the University of Minnesota (B.A. 2001) and William Mitchell 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 on August 1, 2005, Andy has become a trial lawyer.  He’s tried cases all over Minnesota, including both urban and rural counties, involving injured plaintiffs.  Andy also consults on insurance subrogation matters and has litigated the same in Federal court.  He also handles social security disability claims as a part of his diverse practice.

In addition to his time at the firm, since fall 2008, Andy has continuously served as an adjunct professor at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. He also 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.

His accomplishments include being named either a Rising Star or a Super Lawyer since 2011 by Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine.  Additionally, in late 2016, Andy was named as one of the “Attorneys of the Year” by Minnesota Lawyer for his efforts with Paul McEllistrem in obtaining a $5.5 million personal injury verdict in Hennepin County.

Andy’s free time is spent with his family and his community.  He has a wife and two sons.  The family lives in historic St. Paul.  Andy was elected in the fall of 2016 to serve as president of the Summit Hill Association-District 16 planning council.  He also serves on the board of directors for the Grand Avenue Business Association.  He loves St. Paul.  He also loves the University of Minnesota athletics and is known to schedule vacations around home football and basketball games.  He claims he will be in Pasadena, CA some sunny new year’s day to watch his beloved gophers.
