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 where he was an associate attorney in the Labor and Employment section. Andy is part of 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 serves on the Board of Directors for the American Subcontractors Association-Houston Chapter and is the Chair of its Government Affairs Committee. He is also active in his church, Our Savior Lutheran, where he serves on several Boards and committees. 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 working on his ukulele song repertoire, Andy is trying to finagle another trip to a Disney park “for the children.” Andy considers Star Wars and comic books high culture and still enjoys putting together legos with or without his boys. Despite all this, Andy still passes for an adult in most social settings.
