    From 2013 – 2015, Andrew served as Head Law Clerk and Post Graduate Clerk at Corboy & Demetrio where he worked on aviation crashes, medical malpractice cases, motor vehicle collisions and a case where more than 50 complaints were filed on behalf of men whose sperm was destroyed while stored in a cryogenics lab owned by Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

    Before returning to Corboy & Demetrio, Andrew worked as a Law Clerk to Cook Co. Circuit Judge James N. O’Hara.  Andrew’s duties included managing a courtroom portfolio of more than 1400 pending cases as well as authoring draft opinions, legal memoranda and statements of issues regarding Illinois state tort claims.

    In 2013, before joining Corboy & Demetrio, Andrew worked as Law Clerk at the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office and had a 711 license allowing him to argue motions and examine witnesses before the Honorable Evelyn Clay during criminal trials.  Andrew also drafted responses to motions to quash and suppress evidence in felony possession of narcotics cases.

    Andrew graduated Magna Cum Laude from Saint Louis University in 2012 and from Loyola University Chicago School of Law in 2015 where he was a merit scholarship recipient and was on the Dean’s List.  Andrew received CALI Awards for the highest grades in Legal Writing I, Appellate Advocacy and Pretrial Litigation.  Andrew was Founder and Chair of Loyola’s Federal Bar Association and was appointed Executive Director of Loyola’s Mock Trial Board.

    In 2019, Andrew was appointed to the Chicago Bar Association’s Judicial Evaluation Committee, serving on its Investigative Division.  He is an active member of the CBA’s Young Lawyers Section.
