It is easy to get caught up in the often meaningless small disputes within a larger litigated matter. Andrea learned this early in her career as she gained significant trial experience and found that keeping a focus on the big picture and the desired outcome of a case is the best strategy for her clients.

As a member of the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group, she represents clients facing premises liability matters, contract disputes, employment issues and coverage disputes.
