His representation of our company has always been with thorough attention to all details of the matters assigned to him while meeting all obligations in a timely manner. His ability to communicate successfully with employees at all responsibility levels of this company and to communicate skillfully with those who are adversarial to us meets the highest expectations desired from our outside counsel. He has demonstrated that he has excellent credibility in his working on our behalf with regulatory agencies and the courts. We are a national and international company engaging outside legal counsel in over 20 states and more than 10 foreign countries. Mr. Andress is among the truly outstanding lawyers that I have worked with in this country and around the world. His listing in your publication is most appropriate."
