Andrea holds a bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Maryland — educational experience which has greatly benefitted her writing ability as a lawyer.  Upon continuing her education at the University of Baltimore School of Law, Andrea worked full-time during the day as legal support while attending law classes at night.  Her background in legal support includes extensive experience handling Social Security and ERISA disability benefit claims, workers’ compensation, and personal injury litigation.  As a law student, Andrea also worked as a research assistant and served as a member of UB’s Moot Court Board.  She became intensely interested in labor and employment law, competing for UB’s National Labor and Employment Law Moot Court team in 2015 and 2016.

After passing the bar, Andrea joined the Firm as an associate attorney.  Andrea has since successfully assisted clients with various employment and business law matters, including representation and responding to charges of employment discrimination before the EEOC and the Maryland Commission on Civil Rights, litigation in Maryland state and federal courts, and day to day guidance on the legal questions that arise in the business and employment settings.  Andrea regularly assists clients with key employment law matters, including handbook policy development and review, compliance with state employment laws in Maryland and across the United States, wage and hour law compliance, and with guidance on state and federal employment laws.

Andrea regularly develops materials for and presents on a variety of employment law topics such as employee handbooks, employment discrimination laws, legal issues in the hiring and interviewing process, and alternative dispute resolution.  She stays connected to her UB Law community as a student mentor.
