Andrew D. Gowdown focuses on helping his clients with their complex personal injury cases. From traumatic brain injuries and wrongful death to products liability and trucking accidents, Andrew’s clients benefit from his experience and drive to see these cases through to a successful resolution. In addition to handling various types of personal injury cases, Andrew also represents clients in business and securities litigation matters.

Knowing that he wanted to make a difference, Andrew applied his talents to the legal profession. Graduating from the University of Dayton School of Law, he served as the Editor in Chief of the University of Dayton Law Review and authored the article, “The Noneconomic Damages Cap of Ohio Revised Code Section 2744.05(c)(1): Legislative Usurpation of the Constitutional Right to Trial by Jury,” 22 U. Dayton L. Rev. 283 (1997).

In addition to being dedicated to his family and his clients, Andrew enjoys giving back to the community. He is a former member of the Charleston Volunteers for Literacy Board of Directors and volunteered his time twice a week to the Reading Partners Program, where he tutored a student at a local elementary school in Charleston. His personal and professional accomplishments have been recognized by the Charleston Regional Business Journal, Super Lawyers, National Trial Lawyers, and Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory.

Before joining Rosen Hagood, Andrew served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Margaret B. Seymour, United States District Court for the District of South Carolina. This experience remains among the most notable accomplishments of his career.
