Andrew D Wheeler

 

Andrew D. Wheeler attended the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University, and graduated with a Juris Doctorate of law in 2002. Over the past twelve years, Andrew has represented over 2,000 clients in cases involving family law and probate litigation, and counseled clients on elder law rights, long-term care planning and general estate planning. Andrew believes clients desire representation from attorneys who have a thorough understanding of their specific legal issues. Therefore, after beginning his career as a general practitioner, Andrew focused his career on these specific areas of law. He continues to concentrate on those areas today.

 

Andrew regularly interacts with the public by speaking to groups of people on elder law topics, including long-term care planning and techniques to avoid probate litigation. In 2012, Andrew began teaching seminars on adoption law through the National Business Institute, providing guidance to other attorneys on proper procedures to secure adoptions of children.

 

While attending law school, Andrew was active in numerous legal writing opportunities, won awards for legal writing and was selected as a member of the Cumberland Law Review. Andrew was then accepted to the Cumberland Study Abroad Program and attended Durham University in Durham, England. While completing a variety of courses that focused on transactional law and business principles, Andrew worked as a research assistant and intern for Chief Magistrate Judge John Ott in the Federal District Court for the Northern District of Alabama. Upon graduation from law school, Andrew independently owned and operated a solo law firm, The Wheeler Firm, LLC, for ten years before joining with Matthews & Jones, LLP.

 

Andrew is married to Regina Wheeler, with whom he has a son, and the family resides in Miramar Beach, Florida. Andrew serves on the Board of Directors for the Kiwanis Club of Destin and is active in the local chambers of commerce.
