Andrew is a native of Sioux Falls who joined Woods Fuller in 2019. Andrew focuses on assisting businesses with a variety of legal needs including: legal organization and business entity selection, real estate transactions, internal governance, and mergers & acquisitions.

Andrew’s passion for helping businesses, whatever their size or industry, is derived in large part from his prior experience in high school and college as an employee of a family owned and operated retail store in Sioux Falls. There, Andrew experienced the benefits and opportunities provided by healthy businesses to the community, employees, and owners and operators. His motivation for obtaining a law degree was simple: it enables him to come alongside individuals and families who risk their time, energy, and money in the pursuit of running a healthy business to help them achieve their dreams.

While in college, Andrew obtained a degree in Business Administration and a minor in finance, summa cum laude, and was a member of the men’s golf team - loving both the opportunity to travel to new areas of the country to play new golf courses, and the competition. In law school, Andrew focused his studies on business law classes: representing businesses and entrepreneurs, small business planning, and mergers & acquisitions, among others. Andrew graduated magna cum laude, putting him in the top 5% of his law school class.

Outside of work, Andrew enjoys most things sports, particularly football and golf, hitting the gym, and spending time with friends and family.
