Drew is able to provide pragmatic advice to his clients and favorably resolve disputes by drawing upon his diverse and wide-ranging civil trial experience. Rather than being wed to a particular approach or strategy as sometimes happens with persons specializing in a particular area of law, Drew is able survey the matter, viewing it from different perspectives, and advance a particularized strategy, tailored for each controversy.
His pragmatism speaks to case efficiency and early resolution. His trial experience informs his strategic thinking allowing him to position cases for advantageous negotiated settlements or, failing that, trial victory.

A Pennsylvania native, Drew moved to San Diego in 2015 with his wife after passing the California bar by studying nights and weekends while practicing law in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
