Prior to joining Czepiga, Daly, Pope & Perri, Andrew worked in the area of civil litigation including probate matters, health care, personal injury, and medical malpractice defense. He has also done pro bono work for indigent children in juvenile matters and has represented prisoners in civil rights cases.
Aside from his life at the office and in the court room, Andrew is the quintessential Renaissance man – he cooks, enjoys a great cup of coffee, hikes, runs, and can throw a javelin (a skill he honed as a member of his college track and field team.) He also likes reading and taking on projects around the house - especially refinishing old furniture. But most of all, Andrew enjoys spending time with his family – his wife, two young daughters, and their pets (a dog and two fish!).
