"Andy's well-deserved recognition in the highly-specialized area of insurance law is evident in these recent elections," said Jess Millikan, president. "We congratulate him for his accomplishments.  It is especially satisfying to know that the high degree of trust our clients put in his work is matched by recognition from his peers."

ACCEC Fellows include both insurer and policyholder lawyers who strive "to improve the quality of the practice of insurance law and to increase civility and professionalism in our field." 

Andy has served in several capacities with the FDCC including leadership positions for the Federation's 2011 and 2013 Insurance Industry Institutes, and is the Chair of the Federation's Social Media Committee.
