Andrea J. Skolnick
Associate - Skolnick & Bardwell, P.A.
Small but mighty, Andrea combines compassion with common sense in order to deliver practical results to her clients. She is authentic, passionate, and forthright, all the while maintaining a sense of humor that puts her clients at ease even in the most trying of times.
ON BECOMING A LAWYER
Andrea was resistant to follow in her father’s footsteps for much of her young life. However, as she matriculated, it became apparent that she could no longer deny her calling. Her persuasive and thought-provoking writing won her accolades in college, and by the time she graduated law school, she had already successfully argued a highly publicized jury trial in a wrongful death action. Her ability to zealously advocate for others while maintaining a genuine, down to earth attitude has made her a great fit for family law practice.
ON THE CHALLENGES OF PRACTICING LAW
The practice of law can often be formal and time consuming as well as cost prohibitive. Andrea utilizes a practical, no-nonsense approach to achieve desirable outcomes for her clients.
ON HOW SHE IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LAWYERS
Unlike many attorneys, Andrea is not driven by ego, but rather by her client’s best interests. Andrea strives to set aside the pomp, circumstance, and braggadocio to get to the heart of the issues and formulate solutions with her client’s goals in mind.
ON SKOLNICK & BARDWELL, P.A.
Skolnick & Bardwell, P.A. is not your typical law firm. We don’t cater to politics and cut through the red tape which far too often delays other firm’s paths to resolution. Instead, we operate nimbly and with integrity, working as a team to adapt and thrive even through challenging times.
Andrea is happily married and expecting her first child. When not preparing for the arrival of her daughter, Andrea enjoys scouring the Twin Cities for the best gluten free treats, practicing yoga, seeing live music, being utterly terrible at golf, walking her two dogs around Minnesota’s beautiful lakes, and spending meaningful time with loved ones.
