Andrew began his career at a boutique Madison Avenue disability litigation firm in Manhattan before moving to Maine with his wife, Meghan, and son, Liam.   While in New York, Andrew was the lead disability litigation attorney at his firm where he was responsible for the firm’s client intake process, disability claim management practice, and disability (ERISA and non-ERISA) litigation practice.  In this role, Andrew obtained positive outcomes for his clients, including his win in a notable decision – Dimopoulou v. First Unum Life Insurance Company, 13-cv-07159, 2016 WL 612890 (S.D.N.Y. Jan. 25, 2016).  Andrew also obtained a number of reversals on administrative appeal to insurers.

Once in Maine, Andrew worked at a large Portland law firm in a national ERISA litigation practice under the tutelage of the nation’s top employee benefits ERISA litigator defending major disability and life insurance carriers against claims (ERISA and non-ERISA alike) for disability and life insurance benefits.  In this role, Andrew was exposed to hundreds of ERISA benefit denial litigations.  

Now at Lambert Coffin, Andrew is once again engaging in his passion – helping individuals (regardless of where they live) with their claims for life, health, and disability benefits.

Andrew’s unique, focused experience has given him a familiarity with the particular issues that arise from disability, health, and life insurance claims and the differing laws that govern them. Andrew’s extensive experience allows the firm to represent clients nationwide in a specialized and efficient manner, particularly with regard to policies governed by ERISA, which governs the large majority of group insurance policies in existence. There are very few attorneys representing individuals who have the knowledge and experience comparable to Andrew.

Andrew also gives presentations to lawyers and employees on life, health, disability insurance, including ERISA.  In addition to his ERISA, life, health, and disability practice, Andrew practices in other areas including commercial litigation, personal injury, employment disputes, and business matters.  He also serves as outside counsel for businesses.
