Andrew Schuh was born in Mount Vernon and lived there until he graduated from high school and left to earn a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California in 1993. He went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from the University of Arizona in 1996. He currently has a law practice in his home town, Mount Vernon, after having practiced law in Southern California for 20 years. He is admitted to practice in Washington State, California and the District of Columbia.
Andrew started out his career at a medical malpractice defense firm in Los Angeles. Thereafter, Andrew worked at Lewis, Brisbois, Bisgaard and Smith, one of the largest firms in the country. He continued to defend medical malpractice cases at that time, while broadening his practice areas to include most any type of civil litigation and estate planning. Andrew was later recruited to the Legal Department of Sun Healthcare Group, Inc. (Sun) located in Irvine, California.
Sun was a publicly traded, diversified healthcare company with nationwide operations, over 30,000 employees and annual revenue of approximately $2 billion. Initially, Andrew worked for Sun as Corporate Counsel for Litigation. In that capacity, Andrew managed healthcare litigation in a 13-state territory. After two years, Andrew was promoted to Assistant General Counsel (AGC). As AGC, Andrew managed all litigation nationwide for the company and its subsidiaries and also added regulatory, compliance, employment law and human resource departments to his responsibilities. In addition, he became an advisor to senior management and the board of directors on all matters.
After 9 years of service to Sun, the company was acquired by Genesis Healthcare, LLC. Andrew and his family made the decision to move back to the Pacific Northwest, specifically to Mount Vernon, to be closer to his family and the home base of the family business, Schuh Family Farms.
Through Andrew’s law practice in Mount Vernon, he offers legal services in his areas of expertise: litigation, estate planning, healthcare, and agri-business.
