Overview

Andre is an outcomes-oriented commercial litigator valued for his ability to view sophisticated legal problems – and solutions – with a fresh perspective.

A former flight attendant for nearly a decade, Andre learned critical skills that enhance his ability to be an effective advocate for clients as a commercial litigator. Top-notch client service and communication skills are a given for Andre. Up in the air, Andre solved problems with tools on hand; bringing in new resources was not an option, which led to innovative thinking. Additionally, every flight equals a different team of colleagues and clients. Andre is known for his ability to connect with people of all perspectives. Traveling the world, Andre had the opportunity to regularly observe new cultures, perspectives and thought processes. This skillset makes Andre an agile litigator when it comes to negotiating, strategizing and resolving complex legal issues on behalf of clients.

In addition to his airline industry background, Andre served as a judicial intern for the Hon. Diane Sykes, Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Hon. Rebecca Dallet, Wisconsin Supreme Court.

Outside the Office

Andre is a natural competitor.

Andre grew up as the near-youngest of nine brothers, and he learned to hold his own through good-natured competition. He now loves spending time with his family as well as friends. A one-time flight attendant, Andre has visited 44 states, 25 countries, and counting. Andre and his boyfriend, Anthony, try to explore a new destination annually. At home, the puppy, Austin-Dallas, that joined their household in 2019 is the center of attention.

Community Leadership

Andre has volunteered his time and skills to several worthy causes including eviction defense following Hurricane Harvey. During law school, he was also involved in domestic violence injunction hearing representation and the volunteer legal clinic.
