P. Andrew Torrez founded his own firm in 2015 after nearly twenty years of experience in “big firms” in Baltimore, Maryland and Washington, DC. His goal is to provide the same top-notch intellectual firepower for his clients that they expect from the nation’s best law firms without the “big firm” price tag.
Today, Mr. Torrez focuses his practice on business litigation in Maryland and the District of Columbia. He represents individuals and businesses in complex civil disputes, including breach of contract and business torts, intellectual property, employment law, insurance coverage, and appeals before various state and federal appellate courts. He has also worked very closely with individuals, startups, and established businesses to provide counseling, advice, and other services with an eye towards minimizing future potential liabilities.
In addition to his trial experience in state and federal courts, Mr. Torrez has also represented his clients in administrative proceedings, before state agencies such as the Maryland Board of Physicians and the Maryland Board of Education, in alternative dispute resolution (ADR), including court-ordered mediation, and in AAA arbitration disputes with eight- and nine-figure sums at stake. Mr. Torrez has briefed and argued numerous appeals before the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, on certiorari to the Maryland Court of Appeals, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, as well as in the U.S. Courts of Appeal for the First, Fourth, and District of Columbia Circuits.
A 1997 graduate of Harvard Law School with honors, Mr. Torrez has been recognized as a “Local Litigation Star” for the State of Maryland by Benchmark Litigation since 2011, and was previously acknowledged as a “Rising Star” in the region.

After graduating from Catonsville High School, Mr. Torrez went on to graduate from the George Washington University summa cum laude in 1994.
Mr. Torrez is the author of Off Base: New Insights Into an Old Game, a 1998 book on baseball that anticipated the “statistical revolution” that has changed the game of baseball.
