Andrew is one of the founding partners of the Lawyers of Brown and Roberto, PLLC and focuses his practice on assisting those injured in car accidents, those who have been denied the Social Security Disability benefits they are entitled to, and those injured at work. Andrew built into our firm our commitment to using our lawyers experienced to provide a caring, responsive approach to the practice of law.
