Andy is a Colorado native, being born and raised in Loveland (the town, not the ski area). He wanted to branch out and see another part of the country, so he went to law school at Michigan State University College of Law. Apart from earning his law degree, he learned that winters in the Midwest are rough, so he decided to come back home to begin his career.
He began his practice as a prosecutor in Aurora, CO, where he learned how to juggle a large caseload in a fast-paced environment and gained invaluable litigation skills. Many of his cases there were stylized as domestic violence so he has a unique lens into some of the issues and reasons why a person may want a family lawyer.

Andy believes that trust is the foundation for any good relationship, and that includes one between attorney and client. He has spent much time speaking with victims of crime, so he understands the importance of listening and showing empathy. He wants to help his clients in the best way possible and understands that a desirable outcome can vary widely from one person to the next. No two cases are the same because no two people are the same, but Andy will work with you to achieve your best outcome possible and in the most stress-free way possible.
Entering a new phase of your life is stressful enough, and Andy does not want to add to that through unnecessary hearings or trials. However, his time as a prosecutor made him confident and willing to go to trial if that is what it takes.
Andy completed college at the University of Northern Colorado where he was a double-major in communication studies and criminal justice. He was also part of Division I track and field team for the Bears, competing primarily in the 400 hurdles where he was a multiple-time conference scorer and also was part of a conference championship 4×400 meter relay team.
Andy went on to go to law school at the Michigan State University College of Law. While there he was a member of the International Law Review for 2 years and on the editorial board during his last year.
