Practitioner: Andrew first learned about dispute resolution through his participation in the Fellowship of Reconciliation at the University of Minnesota, where he earned a BA with highest honors. He went on to gain an MA in sociology at the University of Chicago (where he met his spouse) while working as a research assistant and consultant to the American Bar Foundation. He taught professional writing as well as quantitative and qualitative methods of sociology, and subsequently worked as a software engineer for fifteen years. Returning to school, he earned a JD from the Quinnipiac University School of Law, focusing primarily on alternative dispute resolution, worked in Quinnipiac’s civil clinic and assisted pro se parties in divorce-related matters in New Haven. He has frequently been a volunteer mediator for Community Mediation, Inc. He is a licensed attorney in the State of Connecticut, but River Bridge Resolutions is not a law firm.
Andrew feels strongly that, more than a career, dispute resolution is a calling. River Bridge represents his attempt to make the benefits of mediation available to the general public. He is a member of NE-ACR and a founding board member of the Connecticut Mediation Network.
