Biography

Andrew Sindler has been practicing and mediating cases for over 17 years in Maryland, D.C., and other areas of the Mid-Atlantic Region. He practices primarily in the Baltimore and D.C. Metropolitan areas, and currently maintains offices in Anne Arundel County. His practice primarily consists of Social Security Disability cases, and he manages his practice entirely virtually, but has previously traveled extensively throughout Maryland, D.C., parts of Northern Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania for hearings on behalf of his clients. He is a proud and active sustaining member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR) as well as several local, state and federal bar associations. In addition to Social Security, Andrew handles other types of personal injury and disability matters, including short-term and long-term disability, auto accidents, worker’s compensation, medical malpractice, medical products liability, and nursing home negligence. He also has prior experience with toxic exposure claims, multi-district litigation/class action, employment matters, family law, general civil and criminal practice, and administrative matters on behalf of police officers under the Law Enforcement Officers’ Bill of Rights (LEOBR). Most recently he renewed his Title Insurance producer license and has handled real estate title and closing matters on behalf of various lenders and title companies. He has maintained a successful solo practice and prior to that he worked at law firms in Baltimore and Rockville handling many of the same types of matters. He has also served as in-house counsel for a non-profit healthcare organization in Baltimore.

In addition to his practice as an attorney, Andrew also obtained his certification as a mediator in 2005, and obtained additional certification to mediate child custody and visitation matters in 2015; since then he has successfully served on various court-appointed and approved lists throughout Maryland; cases are routinely referred to him for mediation in an attempt to resolve the parties’ disputes. He has mediated a wide variety of matters in personal injury, workers’ compensation, insurance law, employment discrimination, contract and real estate disputes, and other types of legal matters with considerable success. He owes part of this success to his work as a mediation participant on behalf of his clients, and the perspective he has gained being on the “inside” of a dispute instead of the “outside.”
His philosophy is that “the best way to have your day in court is to stay out of court.” He is a firm believer in mediation and all other forms of alternative dispute resolution to everyone’s satisfaction and he brings that passion and conviction to every mediation he conducts.

Andrew also serves as a part-time adjunct law professor at his old law school, University of Baltimore School of Law, where he is a proud alumnus, as well as Community College of Baltimore County. In his spare time, Andrew enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing golf and other sports, watching football, baseball, and other sports, music, movies, TV, theatre, reading, and various other activities and hobbies. He is happily married with two daughters and resides in Maryland.
