    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Andrew T. Burnett is a partner with Potter Burnett Law, LLC, in Bowie, Maryland. Licensed to practice in Maryland as well as the District of Columbia, Mr. Burnett represents the rights and entitlements of clients throughout the region who have personal injury claims arising from another party's negligence or wrongdoing, particularly medical malpractice and nursing home abuse claims.

    Nationally recognized as a top attorney and regarded as an emerging leader in his field, Mr. Burnett has achieved notable success advocating on behalf of innocent accident victims and their families. He began his legal career as an assistant state's attorney with Anne Arundel County, where he prosecuted numerous criminal cases and gained invaluable trial experience that serves him well as he fights to help his clients receive the full amount of compensation they deserve.

    He then worked for years as an insurance defense attorney with one of the area's most prominent law firms, where he defended hospitals, doctors and insurance providers against numerous high-stakes, multimillion-dollar claims. He then realized he could best use his talents to assist those in need and focused solely on plaintiff representation. He credits his former insurance defense experience with providing him with a unique insight into the industry, which makes him all the more effective as an advocate for his plaintiff clients.

    A 2004 cum laude graduate of the State University of New York at Oswego, Mr. Burnett attended the University of Baltimore School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor as well as his Master of Business Administration in 2008, graduating cum laude.

    Recognized for his success as well as his impeccable professionalism, he received a Top 40 Under 40 designation from The National Trial Lawyers in 2017, and the National Academy Of Personal Injury Attorneys voted him among the Top 10 Personal Injury Attorneys Under 40 in Maryland. He has also earned many other awards and honors from his peers as well as many positive reviews from his satisfied clients. Andrew has been recognized by Super Lawyers with the reveled distinction of ‘A Rising Star’ in Maryland—yearly since 2014.

    Mr. Burnett is an active member of the Prince George's County Bar Association, the Maryland State Bar Association and the Anne Arundel County Bar Association. He is also a member of the Maryland and American Associations for Justice, and he is a Fellow with the Maryland Bar Foundation.

    Andrew lives in Annapolis with his wife Suzanne, their son, Brooks, daughter, Quinn, and rescue dog, Koco.
