Andrea has always been particularly drawn to the courtroom. She is quick on her feet and loves cross examination (this is an understatement). Her extensive litigation experience and trial work in a variety of practice areas began in 2007. She has handled numerous appeals, adversary proceedings in bankruptcy court, will contests, guardianships, insurance disputes, evictions, workplace harassment, wrongful terminations, garnishments, contract litigation, administrative proceedings, criminal matters, domestic cases, medical malpractice, injury cases, real estate disputes, etc. 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 Federal Bankruptcy Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Central District of California Federal Court, the Washington Supreme Court, Division I, II, and III of the Washington Court of Appeals, and most importantly the United States Supreme Court (which, sadly, did not accept review of her case – but only a select few lawyers ever even have an issue of national importance to seek certiorari, and of the 8,000 cert petitions filed, the SCOTUS accepts merely 80 cases for review each term).
Early on, Andrea’s law practice gravitated toward representing injured people. Connecting with people who have been harmed and providing them something of value to make things a little better was quickly recognized as her ultimate calling. Indeed, Andrea’s deeply held desire to be in the courtroom, helping people and their families, and her passion for justice blazed a path for her to achieve her purpose in the world. Andrea’s significant success in making countless clients happy is a result of doing what she loves for “work.”
