Design professionals thrive when they demonstrate attention to detail and strive to cultivate positive client relationships through clear communications. Andrea aims to do the same when providing legal advice to design professionals.
Having started her career as a prosecutor in the Office of the Attorney General for the District of Columbia, Andrea understands the personal turmoil that involvement in litigation can produce for parties. Her experience handling felony cases has made her comfortable in a courtroom, and her detail-oriented nature empowers her thorough and zealous advocacy for clients. She is experienced in every aspect of litigation, including discovery, motions, case resolution negotiations, witness preparation, and trial.
Drawing on her experience advocating for those who had been wronged in the District, Andrea knows the importance of providing a client-focused approach to each matter. She is a planner and anticipates potential problems before they ripen or worse, surprise her clients.
Representing design professionals in disputes requires the ability to make the new and complex aspects of design and construction understandable for the fact-finders who decide the dispute. Andrea can “translate” the jargon and present the design in a persuasive manner because she buries herself in the facts and relentlessly simplifies the core issues in the dispute.
