Andrea was born and raised in Hamilton where she continues to reside with her husband and two children. She graduated from McMaster University, where she completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree. She clerked with Agro Zaffiro before obtaining an LL.B at the University of Ottawa.
After summering both at Agro Zaffiro and subsequently at a labour and employment firm, she returned to AZ to complete her articles and became an Associate upon her call to the bar in 2008.
Her areas of practice consist of family law and civil litigation, with a focus in insurance defence litigation.
Andrea has developed a family law practice guiding her clients through the often stressful and emotional aspects of separation and divorce. Andrea understands that each family law client has their own unique circumstances and applies an empathetic and results oriented approach to all matters, whether that be through alternative dispute resolution or litigation. Andrea has experience dealing with issues related to divorce, division of property, child custody and access, separation agreements and other domestic contracts such as co-habitation agreements and marriage contracts.
Her practice also extends to insurance defence litigation where she deals with a broad range of areas, including motor vehicle injury claims, general and commercial liability, subrogation and property damage claims.
She is a current member of the Canadian and Ontario Bar Associations, the Medical Legal Society, the Canadian Defence Lawyers and the Hamilton Law Association. She also volunteers her time with the Elizabeth Fry Society. Outside of work, Andrea can be found spending time with her husband and children exploring all of the hidden treasures that Hamilton has to offer.
