Reason for selection of recipient(s): 

Andrews’ choice to work with private firms began as a suggestion from the minister of the church he was representing while a staff attorney at Palmetto Legal Services. The minister suggested he help the poor and create change by working in a private law firm. He accepted the challenge and his new mission became to create opportunities for others. Andrews now leads Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP’s Health Care Group by representing hospitals, health care systems, physicians, and ancillary providers in a wide range of regulatory and litigation matters in Columbia, SC. He has served on numerous statewide task forces responsible for the development of recommendations concerning heath care policy in South Carolina, as well as chairman of numerous organizations and initiatives. Having been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers of America (1995-2008 editions), he also received the South Carolina Bar Pro Bono Lawyer of the Year Award in 2005. Andrews has shown vision, compassion, and leadership in serving the legal needs of the lowincome community throughout his career.
