  • Judicial Clerk to the Honorable Don Willett, Texas Supreme Court (2011-2012)


Texas, 2011


As a pastor’s son and a formerly aspiring sportscaster, Andrew Guthrie knows the value of grabbing – and keeping – the audience’s attention. Litigation is no different, whether in a brief to the appellate court or an argument to the jury. But Andrew also knows that once that attention is earned, substance is paramount. Andrew therefore focuses his diverse commercial litigation practice on identifying and communicating his clients’ most important arguments in a clear, accurate, and ultimately effective way.

Andrew’s background and experience have equipped him to represent clients in a broad range of litigation matters and at every stage – from the outset of the lawsuit to the appellate court briefing. As a former law clerk for Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett, Andrew has seen first-hand what works (and what doesn’t) in the appellate court. In practice, Andrew has worked in both an appellate and trial capacity on cases ranging in subject matter from the federal False Claims Act, to misappropriation of trade secrets, to patent infringement, and various other complex commercial disputes.

Through in-depth analysis of a case’s most important legal and factual questions and his natural ability to clearly communicate those points to a judge or a jury, Andrew consistently provides effective representation to his clients no matter the case and no matter the stage.

Away from the office, Andrew serves as a deacon at his local congregation. He is also a member of the Board of Directors for Christian Unity Ministries.
