Andy is Vice President and General Counsel for Adams Insurance Service and holds a J.D. from the University of Texas and a B.B.A. from the University of St. Thomas, summa cum laude.
Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Andy likes to say that he has worked for Adams Insurance from birth! Andy joined the Adams team in his current capacity in 2002 from Bracewell & Patterson (now Bracewell & Guiliani) where he was an associate attorney in the Labor and Employment section. Andy is now the third generation of the Adams family to work at Adams Insurance. In addition to his duties as General Counsel, Andy brings a unique perspective to the service Adams provides with his background in labor and employment litigation.
Andy is active in the community and his church, Our Savior Lutheran, where he serves on several Boards and committees. In particular, he has a passion for the restoration of classical liberal arts education in elementary and secondary schools. Andy married his high-school sweetheart, Amy Barrett, in 2000. They have been blessed with four children, Isabella Marie, Benjamin Barrett, Samuel Griffin and Livia Sue.
When he is not at the office or trying to figure out how to justify another trip to Disneyworld “for the children,” Andy is a fair-weather gardener, and an avid reader of military histories (anything by Victor Davis Hanson), classical literature, movies, and comic books.
