Andy is one of the founding partners of Biller & Kimble, LLC. He is a recognized authority on wage and hour law and has recovered over $13 Million on behalf of his clients.
Andy has argued novel wage and hour issues before the Supreme Court of Ohio, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Ohio Court of Appeals, and lower courts. As a result of his trailblazing work, he’s received numerous precedent-setting decisions in a number of cases.
From Andy: "I'm one of those lucky folks who loves what they do. I get a lot of joy out of taking an 'outsider' approach to the practice of law. At our firm, we think creatively and bring in techniques from other disciplines to get results even I'm occasionally surprised to see. But, that's part of the fun. Sometimes, it feels like other firms are playing checkers while we're playing 'Here I Stand.' (Look that one up. I'm a big board game fan.)"
