Andy focuses his practice on election, political, and public law. He advises candidates, political action committees, political party organizations, nonprofits, and government entities on issues of campaign finance, ballot access, election mechanics, and election-related litigation. In addition, Andy works closely with groups that sponsor ballot measures at both the state and local level from the drafting of ballot language to defending and prosecuting pre-and post-election challenges (and everything in between). His ballot measure work includes successful measures such as Smart and Safe Arizona (Prop. 207), Save Our Schools (Prop. 305), the Arizona Education Finance Amendment (Prop. 123), the Reid Park Zoo Animal Quality of Life Acts (Props. 202 and 203), and many other statewide and local measures.
Andy is also a member of the firm’s Litigation group, focusing on complex civil litigation, civil rights litigation, public records litigation, and civil appeals. He represents clients at all stages of litigation in state and federal court and has argued multiple times in the Arizona Supreme Court, the Arizona Court of Appeals, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
