Personal injury clients face many challenges. After an injury, they may struggle to pay bills, find a replacement vehicle, or even obtain medical care. Time and again, insurance companies take advantage of the injured in order to increase their corporate profits. Andrew understands what it means to overcome adversity. He grew up in public housing in Groton and worked his way through college and law school by waiting tables and tending bar. He has devoted his practice to helping those who are most vulnerable to obtain justice. Andrew uses his skills to level the playing field for his clients. When he is not practicing law, Andrew is probably hosting a great party for his family and friends or building furniture in his workshop.
