Biography of Andrew J. Spinnell

Mr. Spinnell also holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Education from Columbia University, as he embarked on a legal career after several years of teaching as a professor in various colleges. He graduated from Fordham Law School in 1983. He worked full-time through law school as a Paralegal at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, and then at Donovan Leisure Newton & Irvine. His incessant drive and work ethic has typified his practice of law ever since. He is a consummate professional, with a 24/7 devotion to his clients and cases, who strives to provide each client with a winning strategy on a personal, always available, basis - evidenced by his availability after normal business hours and on the weekends.

Whether working on a contingency arrangement for a personal injury client, or on a retainer basis for a matrimonial or commercial client, Mr. Spinnell treats every client equally - with respect and as if his or her case were the most important in the office. That attitude has generated a stream of happy clients and referring attorneys.

After graduation from Fordham Law School, Mr. Spinnell gained invaluable experience in commercial, matrimonial, personal injury and landlord-tenant litigation as an associate of various firms in New York County. In 1993 he started his own office specializing in the same areas of expertise gained from his experience. He is a member of various City and State Bar Associations, and the New York State and American Association for Justice, is featured in "Who's Who in American Law," and is a current member, and past president, of his Condominium Board in New York City.

He is married and has twin boys and resides in Manhattan.
