André earned his Juris Doctorate from Chapman University Fowler School of Law in 2014. While in law school, he participated in the Bette and Wylie Aitken Family Protection Clinic as a certified law student. This allowed him to retain a client through the clinic, gather evidence and witness testimony, and represent the client in court. André helped to secure a favorable result, and in the process earned a CALI award (highest grade in the clinic) for his work. Subsequently, André has been working with Family Law clients since September 2015.
Previously, André also worked as a law clerk for a boutique civil litigation firm. He gained valuable experience in pre-trial litigation, conducted various law and motion procedures, and communicated with opposing counsel and clients.
Prior to moving to California to attend law school, André graduated from the University of Utah. He majored in International Studies, minored in French, and studied abroad in Tours, France. Although he enjoyed the mountain atmosphere of Salt Lake City, André prefers spending time with his family on the sunny beaches of Southern California.
André is licensed to practice in all of the state courts of California, and the District Court for the Central District of California. He is also a member of the Orange County Bar Association.
