After attending the University of Vermont for three years, Andrew, a lifelong Philadelphia resident, decided the lure of Philadelphia was too strong and transferred to Drexel University, where he completed his undergraduate degree in History and Politics in 2004. While attending Drexel University, Andrew began working at the AHP Settlement Trust. The Trust was established by the United States Federal Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to administer the settlement of the Phen-Fen Diet Drug class action lawsuit, one of the largest class action settlements in United States history.

Andrew’s work at the Trust led him to enroll at the Widener University School of Law, following in the footsteps of his father, uncle, grandfather, and great-grandfather — all of whom are or were attorneys. Beginning in 2005, Andrew attended the Widener University School of Law as an evening division student, spending his days working full-time at the AHP Settlement Trust and his nights in law school. After earning his law degree in 2009, Andrew began working at Lopez McHugh, initially as a law clerk and then an associate. Andrew is licensed to practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey and was recognized as one of the Best Lawyers in America for personal injury litigation for 2018.

Andrew focuses on pharmaceutical and medical device mass tort litigation, and medical negligence cases. He is currently working on litigation involving multiple Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs) antidepressants, metal-on-metal hip replacements, and numerous medical negligence cases in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Previously, Andrew has worked on mass tort litigation including gadolinium-based contrast agents, contaminated heparin, oral sodium phosphates, and denture cream adhesives. He has been named to the 2018 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers’ Rising Stars list, which is made up of the less than 2.5% of lawyers in the state that are under 40 or have been practicing for fewer than 10 years.

In his spare time, Andrew likes to travel, is an avid skier, and is on a bowling team. Andrew is a sports fan and enjoys watching all of Philadelphia’s sports teams.
