I had the pleasure of speaking with Andrew in a phone consultation. It was apparent to me that he had my best interest... in mind. He was able to explain my legal questions in a way that someone who does not have a law degree could understand. At no time, did I feel as though he was rushing me through our talk. All of my questions were answered thoroughly. I will be continuing to work with Connors & Brenke for all of my Copyright and Intellectual Property business needs.read more

I contacted Andrew Connors of Connors & Brenke Law Firm because I was in need of legal assistance. My issue dealt... specifically with contract fraud and breach of contract, perpetrated against me. Connors & Brenke specializes in business law, contracts and trademarks. After speaking with Mr. Connors, I knew he was the attorney for me.Mr. Connors is very knowledgeable in all aspects of business law. I was extremely impressed how he was able to grasp the details of my problem because it was somewhat complex in nature. But he did!Mr. Connors is extremely knowledgeable, intelligent, understanding, honest, empathetic, etc.What has impressed me the most is that Mr. Connors has embraced my problem as his own. I cannot express the confidence & relief I feel having Mr. Connors as my attorney.This review is written by an actual client.Yvette T.Ruther Glen, VAread more

Connors & Brenke know what they are doing when it comes to business law. Andrew Connors represented me in my copyright... infringement dispute. He and Rachel Brenke explained the very complicated copyright laws and my options in litigating and protecting my intellectual property. They understood how personal my property was to me. There was no doubt Mr. Connors knew the best course of action to take in my dispute. They are highly ethical and will keep you abreast of any developments and ask you for input as they proceed. Now I realize how important it is to protect your hard work. They can help with business formation, disputes and contracts. I was surprised by their diverse knowledge and experience in so many areas.read more
