For twenty-five years, Andy has specialized in assisting and representing clients in the construction industry, including property owners, prominent regional general contractors and subcontractors and material suppliers. His practice focuses on construction-related contract issues and on prosecuting and defending construction performance and damage claims. He has extensive experience in construction-related mediation and arbitration. Given the prominence of insurers in the construction industry, Andy also possesses broad expertise in working with carrier claims counsel. He has earned the AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

Andy’s background and experience naturally lends itself to counseling clients in the industry on such critical issues as negotiating contracts, avoiding potential claims, resolving change order disputes, filing mechanic’s liens and pursuing payment bond claims. Clients turn to him to negotiate claim settlements before more costly litigation or arbitration proceedings might otherwise begin. He has become a noted contributor to industry publications and often is invited to speak at industry meetings, hold in-house seminars for construction managers and staff and teach legal education seminars on construction law.

Andy has successfully tried numerous cases in state and federal court, including the Virginia Supreme Court and the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. One example of his expertise was winning a jury verdict in excess of $2,000,000 for his contractor client on deferred payment agreements arising out of a residential construction development in southwest Virginia. He recently won an arbitration award for a client in excess of $600,000 in change order claims on a cost-plus contract dealing with a residential renovation of a Washington, D.C. townhouse.
