Andrew A. Servais

Andrew represents and counsels local businesses, attorneys and law firms in pre-litigation matters, multi-week jury trials, bench trials and arbitrations along with resulting appeals having argued several times before the 1st and 2nd Divisions of the Fourth District Court of Appeal.

Through these proceedings, Andrew has examined, cross-examined or deposed both expert and percipient witnesses with countless backgrounds including attorneys specializing in numerous practice areas, officers of public and private corporations including CEOs, CFOs, corporate counsel and corporate controllers/comptrollers, CPAs, tax professionals,  civil engineers, medical practitioners including psychiatrists and coroners and law enforcement personnel including executive level officers and homicide detectives and numerous forensic experts.

Andrew’s extensive litigation experience allows him to quickly and efficiently analyze legal issues facing his clients to provide his clients with the information necessary to assess the costs/benefits of proceeding at every stage of litigation.

Andrew has obtained dozens of pre-trial dismissals of claims through summary judgment, non-suit and California’s Anti-SLAPP statute with resulting attorney fee awards well in excess of six-figures on behalf of his clients.

Prior to entering law school, Andrew worked as an aide to former congressman James Gibbons (NV) in Washington, D.C.
