Andrew Parkhurst


Andrew represents clients in general civil litigation. As a former officer in the United States Navy and a civil engineer, his background gives him a special perspective on legal and business matters.

Before joining McManis Faulkner, Andrew clerked for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of California, conducting legal research, drafting memoranda, and appearing in court on behalf of the government. He also interned in-house with Lockheed Martin and Oracle.

His experiences living abroad in Japan and Bahrain, and working for a law firm focused on European Union business matters in Budapest, Hungary, make Andrew sensitive to cultural differences and have given him a broad understanding of the intricacies of the international legal system and the practice of law.
