Andrew ("Drew") began his practice in Chicago, Illinois, where he litigated complex commercial litigation cases, primarily focused on representing business in disputes with former employees. Since returning to Kansas City and joining the firm as an associate in 2017, Drew's practice has continued to focus on commercial disputes, with a focus on a variety of employment, trade secrets, fiduciary duty, and contract disputes. Drew's practice has expanded to also defend personal injury matters.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to practice with the talented lawyers at SAKG, who share my passion for seeking creative solutions to our clients’ complex problems.”

Outside the office, Drew serves as a mentor to students at Kansas State University and the University of Illinois. Drew lives in Kansas City and enjoys going to concerts, playing the piano, and rooting on the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals, and K-State Wildcats.
