Tacoma became Andrea’s home when she attended Pacific Lutheran University (PLU). Andrea is excited to be permanently established in Tacoma where she has a general civil litigation practice working with local businesses and families.
Andrea has always been driven by a desire to help people solve difficult problems. While at PLU, she volunteered with the Diversion Unit at Pierce County Juvenile Court, working with adolescent domestic violence perpetrators.
Andrea attended law school at the University of Washington. She returned to Tacoma during the summers to intern with the Washington Attorney General’s Office, where she worked on a variety of cases related to industrial safety, workers compensation, unemployment compensation, and drivers license suspensions. In her final year of law school, Andrea served as a judicial extern to Judge Ronald B. Leighton, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.
When away from work, Andrea enjoys FaceTiming her nieces and outdoor adventures with her dog.
