When we needed help he was there. He helped us for what was RIGHT! We consulted with Andrew on some legal issues regarding our business. What was being done to us was not right. He helped us by analyzing the situation and helped us get the fair treatment that we deserve. He did not let any political issues stand in the way of doing the right thing! He listened to what we had to say and he was very respectful! He is honest and down to earth! A++++ We highly recommend his firm for any of your legal issues!
