Associate Attorney

Experience

Andrew Simmons, Associate Attorney, joined D’Andre Law at their Oakland office in March 2014 with a focus on defending workers’ compensation insurers and employers.

Prior to joining D’Andre Law, Mr. Simmons worked as an associate for Girard Gibbs, assisting in the handling of complex litigation class actions—including pharmaceutical claims and securities litigation. Mr. Simmons also assisted in criminal defense cases, asbestos litigation, and family law litigation.

While attending law school, Mr. Simmons took course work specializing in litigation. He was a three-year member of the USF Maritime Law Journal—including a year as the Executive Articles Editor. He interned as a legal clerk at Thomas, Quinn & Krieger, which specializes in maritime and longshore cases. Mr. Simmons was also a two-time member of the John R. Brown Appellate Advocacy Team.

Prior to attending law school, Mr. Simmons worked as a logistics specialist in Chicago. He specialized in reducing costs related
to a fleet of dedicated trucks, which handled the logistics for a Fortune 500 company. In this capacity, he was able to use his expert knowledge of supply chains and shipping to work with companies to maximize the value and efficiency of their trucks. This experience from working with employees to company presidents to truck drivers served as a training ground for the requirements in working with clients and applicants in the field of workers’ compensation.
