We are trial lawyers.
We have a fiery passion for the preparation, the fight and the justice that comes with going to trial. Each personal injury case offers a challenge, but each challenge is one we know we will summon and conquer. Our clients have been harmed, we determine the losses and seize the risk it takes to receive true, maximum compensation. We aren’t afraid to admit we’re about winning, even if that means other lawyers hate us. But we promise you’ll be pleased with the results.
Andrea is a native to the Tri-Cities community. She attended Gonzaga Law School and returned home to begin her legal career and raise a family. She has always been particularly drawn to the courtroom. Her extensive litigation experience and trial work in a variety of practice areas began in 2007. Andrea’s aggressive litigation style resulted in her admission to the Eastern and Western District of Washington federal court, Eastern and Western District of Washington bankruptcy court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Washington Supreme Court and Division I, II, and III of the Washington Court of Appeals.
Andrea’s practice quickly gravitated toward representing injured people. Namely, her desire to be in the courtroom, helping people, and passion for justice made this a naturally great fit. Indeed her significant success is a result of doing what she loves for ‘work’.
When she is not at the office or tending to her three young kids Andrea enjoys the outdoors, cooking, reading, and traveling.
“When my client retains me to pursue a claim or file a lawsuit, it usually represents reliving the most traumatic years of their life, consideration of their family’s future, and possibly even the ability to make a living. It is my business to completely understand and fight hard to protect those things.”
