Andy grew up in St. Cloud, MN, and completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire. He first moved to Iowa while attending the University of Iowa College of Law, where he was a managing editor of the Iowa Law Review. Following law school, he accepted a position with Laird and has happily called north Iowa “home” ever since.

He has previously served on the boards of Central Gardens of North Iowa and the Mason City Chamber of Commerce. Andy is also a member of the Cerro Gordo County, District 2A, and Iowa State Bar Associations.

Andy’s practice focuses on corporate and commercial law, estate planning, and probate and trust administration.
