I have worked through many workplace investigations and various employment issues with Andrew. Handling these type of matters in a thorough and sensitive manner is a real strength of his. I have often received comments from our external counsel on how well the investigations were conducted by Andrew. His work has been very valuable in assessing the merits of potential claims and in determining litigation strategies.
I have worked with Andrew since the 1990′s in the capacity of outside legal counsel through two different employers of his. In my working with Andrew, I have been particularly impressed with his ability to balance the various issues that often come into play on matters we dealt with. He has proven to be extremely genuine in his actions and has shown me his ability to be thorough, open minded and smart. I would recommend both business organizations and attorney’s work with Andrew.
