Andy is originally from Wisconsin, growing up in the Madison area, and obtaining his Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. After working in Milwaukee for a year after graduating, he packed up everything he had in his car and moved to Dallas, TX. There he worked as a Trust and Investment Associate at Northern Trust Bank in Highland Park for several years when the legal profession came calling.
Andy went to Law School in Dallas at Southern Methodist University’s Dedman School of Law. After earning his J.D., he worked for a boutique Bankruptcy firm in Plano for 6 years. His time here coincided with the huge overhaul in the Bankruptcy Code, allowing him to be on the ground floor of practicing under the new laws. Andy has since added Family Law and Estate Planning to his practice areas and joined the Law Office of William Araiza in the Summer of 2014, after several years as a sole-practitioner.
Andy enjoys spending time with his wife and 3 boys, helping coach his sons’ soccer and baseball teams, and is an active member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 799.
