Andy is brilliant, passionate and, hands down, the most creative lawyer I know. He has vision. Andy devised a nationwide plaintiffs’ class action suit that no other lawyer had likely ever conceived, and in moving it forward, Andy quickly transformed the working conditions of thousands. He’s an inspiration, both to his clients and to colleagues in the profession.
