Attorney Andrew P. Smith is our latest hire at Williams & Jorden. As an associate attorney, Drew's work is different every day. From writing briefs on the Americans with Disabilities Act or about products liability to spending time in the courtroom advocating for people seeking protection from abuse, his day-to-day never has a dull moment.
An East Amherst, NY, native and Cathedral Prep grad, Drew spent his collegiate career south of Erie at the University of Pittsburgh for both undergraduate and law school. While in school, he earned several internships, including Erie Insurance in their Legal and Corporate Claims Division, and Southwestern PA Legal Services, where he practiced Divorce, Custody, and Protection from Abuse matters.
With family roots in the city and in Buffalo, Drew found himself back in Erie in 2016, where he accepted a position at a local law firm. When asked why he decided to apply to our law firm back in 2018, Drew said:
I saw a strong potential for growth, an opportunity to learn new areas of the law that I otherwise would not have handled, and, upon my initial interview, the atmosphere of the firm drew my attention.
When he's not practicing law, Drew enjoys traveling, spending time with friends and family, and enjoying a good local craft beer. In fact, many of his interests are those he shared with his dad, including Buffalo sports (particularly the Sabres). He also enjoys participating in the occasional golf, baseball, and recreational hockey game.
Drew is eager to learn and grow with his career at Williams & Jorden, and we are excited to have him! He makes a great addition to our staff and is a positive presence in our practice's atmosphere. For more information about Drew, our staff, and our services, contact us here.
