Andrew Skinner grew up in Charles Town, West Virginia. He graduated from Jefferson High School in 1988 and then attended the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, from which he received a bachelors degree in Economics in 1992. Andrew participated in the ROTC program at William and Mary and was commissioned as an officer in the United States Army. Andrew served on active duty in the Army for four years, serving as a tanker and then a logistician in the 4th Infantry Division. After coming off of active duty, Andrew started law school at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin, Texas, which is considered one of the top law schools in the nation. Andrew graduated with honors from the University of Texas and moved to Chicago, where he took up practice with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, one of the largest law firms in the country. His primary practice involved product liability lawsuits. Andrew returned home in September 2003 when he joined his father’s practice at Nichols & Skinner, which has since been renamed Skinner Law Firm. Andrew focuses on personal injury and consumer protection. Exceedingly important to Andrew are cases that seek to protect the public. For instance, Andrew believes that one of the most effective approaches to stop drunk driving and protecting our community members is to bring lawsuits that seek to bring drunk drivers and the bars that over serve them to justice. These so-called “dram shop” cases ensure that bars and patrons act responsibly by forcing them to compensate their victims who are injured in drunk driving crashes.
