Background

Over the years, Andy has been the lead lawyer in many high profile criminal cases. In 2008 Andy became one of only 3 lawyers in the State of Indiana to be certified as a “criminal law specialist” by the National Board of Trial Advocates (NBTA). www.nblsc.us/home/ the “National Board of Legal Specialty Certification” is in charge of the certification process. Recently, Mark Kamish, a partner for the Criminal Defense Team, became only the 4th attorney in the State of Indiana to attain board certification in criminal law.

Over his lifetime, Andy has worked as a paperboy, lawn-mower, fast-food worker, bartender, restaurant manager, ditch-digger, substitute teacher, waiter, deejay and sports broadcaster for WINN and WKRP (Columbus and North Vernon). This wide range of life experience has helped shape who he is and gives him an appreciation for his clients in their various walks of life, and also an understanding of how better to relate to juries. In October 2013, Andy will begin his 20th year as a trial lawyer in Indiana.

After graduating from law school in 1994, Andy started out working for the law firm “Jones, Drury and Hoffman”. During this time, Andy cut his teeth on his first jury trials and had his first exposure to criminal defense under the tutelage of one of the great trial lawyers in Indiana, Tom Jones. In 1995, Andy left to start his own practice, opening up an office in Nashville Indiana. It was during this time frame that Andy began focusing his practice more exclusively in the area of criminal defense.

Andy married his wife, Michelle, in 1996. Michelle was also a 1994 graduate of the University of Akron law School. That same year, Andy worked for the law firm of Nice, Moore and Wooly in downtown Indianapolis, primarily handling its criminal defense cases. During this time, Andy maintained his Nashville office, which was used as satellite office by Nice, Moore and Wooly.

In December 1996, Andy joined with former Johnson Circuit Court judge Jeff Eggers to form the law firm “Eggers & Baldwin”. The main office was in Franklin, but they also maintained the Nashville office until 1999. During this time frame, Andy sat on the Community Corrections board in Brown County. In 1999, his son (Wilk) was born. In 2001 his daughter (Meera) was born.

In 2004, Andy left to start his own law firm with the idea that he would begin concentrating his entire practice in the area of criminal defense. In 2005 Andy decided that the law firm would only be accepting cases involving those charged with crimes.

Andy grew up in Brownsburg Indiana, graduating from high school in 1985. He attended Franklin College from 1985-1989. While at Franklin, he was a member of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, the Student Foundation and had his own radio show on WFCI-FM.
