Andy has dedicated thousands of hours throughout his career to providing pro bono legal services to non-profit organizations.  Many of the non-profit clients he works with have missions that are international in scope.  Examples include Endeavor Global, Inc. (promoting high-impact entrepreneurship in emerging markets), Fair Trade USA (improving the lives of farmers and workers through market-based incentives), Oxfam America (creating long-term solutions to poverty, hunger, and social injustice), StartingBloc (a global Fellowship for social impact change-makers), and YouthBuild International (helping young people to transform their lives and rebuild their communities).  Andy has worked with most of these organizations for more than a decade and has provided a combination of legal and business advice to their boards, senior executives, and staff members.

In 2015, Andy joined the Boards of the Disability Rights Fund, Inc. and Disability Rights Advocacy Fund, Inc., which manage a grant making collaborative between donors and the global disability rights community that empowers persons with disabilities around the world to advocate for equal rights and full participation in society.  He has also served on the Advisory Council of Fair Trade USA continuously since 2004.
