About the Law Office of W. Andrew Arnold, P.C.
Over his 29 years of practicing law, Greenville attorney W. Andrew (Andy) Arnold has litigated more than a hundred high stakes cases. Born and raised in the upstate, Andy attended public schools before getting a bachelor’s degree from Furman University. He graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law with honors. Upon graduation, Andy began his career representing companies at a big law firm but that didn’t last long. After only two years, he launched his own employment law practice at the age of 27. However, after a multi-million dollar verdict against a billion-dollar nursing home chain for negligence, his litigation practice diversified. Today, he handles a select number of cases in the areas of employment law, non-compete litigation, business disputes, and partnership break-ups, and nursing home and abuse cases.
The common theme is that each case is high stakes. His cases are the sorts that keep him and his clients up at night. Cases where reckless or ruthless people have taken the livelihood or the lives of people who played by the rules. It’s the kind of case that you can’t afford to lose. Although no one can guarantee success, Andy can guarantee that he will give each the best representation that his skills and experience, and passion can muster.
Andy has been consistently been recognized by his peers. He has been named a Super Lawyer 10 of the last 12 years – an annual distinction held by only 5% of attorneys in each state. As an employment lawyer and litigator, he has also been recognized by The U.S. News & World Report’s annual Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings. Greenville Magazine has named Andy to their list of the Greenville Magazine’s “Legal Elite” the last 9 years running.
However, Andy has chosen a law practice model that is highly selective in the cases he accepts. Lots of good cases can be done just as well by others, but there are some cases that Andy’s skill set and experience provide unique value to his clients. Those are the clients he wants to serve. Andy primarily handles employment litigation, business litigation/shareholder oppression, non-compete cases, and nursing home abuse and neglect cases. However, his experience ranges from wrongful death, dram shop cases, trucking accidents, and trade secret litigation.
Proud to be a South Carolina Lawyer (Blast from the Past)
