Andrea is an Iowa native and currently resides in Pleasant Hill. She grew up on the family farm in Runnells, Iowa. Andrea graduated from the University of Iowa with a Major in Psychology, Minor in Spanish and Certificate in Nonprofit Management. She then attended Drake Law School where she volunteered with the Juvenile Delinquency Clinic and Children’s Rights Clinic. Upon graduation from Drake Law School, Andrea hit the ground running, opening her own general practice firm, McGinn Law, PLLC, in Van Meter.
Andrea’s practice is focused mainly on family law. She thoroughly enjoys working with families and helping them navigate the unknown waters of divorce, custody, support, adoption and other complex family law issues. She truly cares for her clients and knows a compassionate, collaborative practice is the best way to ensure her clients’ long-range interests are addressed and to make sure they are ready for life after divorce. Andrea’s collaborative practice methods follow her philosophy that a client should be the captain of his or her own ship. In other words, you and your spouse know your own situation the best and the two of you can work with your lawyers to develop solutions that are best for your family. From the house, the kids, the pets, the finances to everything in between, you and your spouse should be the primary decision makers in your own case (with your lawyer by your side for guidance, of course).
When she’s not in the office, Andrea is usually enjoying her time with her husband, Nick, and their two dogs (fur children), Zoey and Leo. They are welcoming their first child into the family in September 2016 and could not be more excited. Andrea loves her job and her clients. She wants what is best for you and your family.
