Douglas W. Andrews
Doug was a Founder and the Managing Partner of Andrews & Rhodes LLP from its inception until April 2017. Doug was a pioneer in the area of construction litigation. He spent over 30 years litigating and resolving disputes, including construction defect and site accident claims while representing owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers and manufacturers of building components and products.
On a more personal level, Doug was a devoted and dedicated father and husband. Doug and his wife, Kathleen, raised 5 children. Each one of Doug’s children would tell you that they were his favorite. Doug made it a priority to be at nearly every one of his children’s athletic and academic events. Doug’s children could attest that not only would Doug make the time to be at the events, but it was more often the case that Doug would either be coaching or actively participating in practices.
As his children grew and went off to college, to serve missions for their church and to start their own families, Doug was a constant and influential presence in all of their lives. In fact, Doug was so influential that 3 of his sons have followed in his footsteps to become practicing attorneys in Southern California. In these later years, his dedication and involvement extended to his grandchildren. If there was any event he would be there coaching just like before. Indeed, his family was his life.Resume
