Andrew J. (Andy) Petesch

Andy spent his first four years as an attorney clerking for a federal judge and working at a large law firm along side some of the top lawyers in this state. During that time, he not only honed his skills in the procedural and substantive aspects of the law, but also learned the importance of professionalism and client service. Those four qualities, especially when combined with fervent advocacy, create a powerfully effective law practice.
When Andy left big firm life in early 2010, he developed a vision of delivering that same level of legal service, but doing so more efficiently, more flexibly, and to a broader spectrum of clients. The move also allowed him to expand his practice into other areas of law that provide greater value to his clients.

In addition, Andy has experience in a variety of fields including politics, small business, organizational psychology, and clinical research that help him better understand his clients' needs and goals.
