Since 1996, Andrew has been widely recognized as a leading nursing home abuse lawyer in Ohio, after he obtained one of the largest jury awards in the state against a nursing home operator.  Since that time, Andrew has helped dozens of families who have experienced the death of a loved one as a result of neglect or abuse in a long-term care facility.

Andrew has substantial experience representing consumers who have been injured by dangerous or defective products, including cases involving fires and explosions, dangerous pharmaceuticals and defective medical devices.

In the early 1990s, Andrew represented dozens of persons who had suffered serious burn injuries caused by defective coolant systems in Renault automobiles.  And, Andrew’s commitment to assisting burn injury survivors has continued with a variety of dangerous products, including toys.

For more than a decade, Andrew has represented hundreds of consumers injured by dangerous pharmaceuticals and defective medical devices. Some examples include patients who suffered heart attacks or strokes after taking pain medications such as Vioxx or Bextra; children who suffered catastrophic injury as a result of antidepressant medications, including Paxil; young women who suffered strokes after taking birth control medications, such as Ortho Evra and Yasmin.

Similarly, Andrew continues to represent dozens of patients who have suffered injury as a result of defective medical devices, including: metal on metal hip implants manufactured by Biomet and Depuy, knee implants manufactured by Zimmer and surgical mesh materials manufactured by Boston Scientific.

Andrew is a graduate of Wake Forest University and The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law. He is admitted to practice in all of Ohio’s trial courts, both state and federal, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. Andrew has also been specially admitted to numerous trial courts outside Ohio, serving as trial counsel for lawyers who request assistance in bringing complex cases before judges and juries.
