A native Houstonian, Andréa was raised in Venezuela and later in Boca Raton, Florida before returning to Texas. Andréa received her Bachelor of Arts with High Honors in 2009 from the University of Texas where she devoted her free time to charitable work abroad in Mexico and Central America. While completing her undergraduate degree, Andréa clerked with the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and was inspired by the meaningful ways in which lawyers can impact people’s lives.
After completing her undergraduate studies, Andréa embraced the opportunity to clerk at a well-respected plaintiff’s firm. Not long after, she earned her law degree from Baylor Law School in 2014. During her time at Baylor, Andréa was a member of the pro bono litigation team and a volunteer in the school’s pro bono immigration clinic.
Before joining Hendler Flores Law, Andréa gained extensive experience specializing in multi-party personal injury and product defect litigation. Her current focus is on the DBCP litigation, a 27-year legal battle the firm has been fighting on behalf of hundreds of Latin American banana plantation workers who were harmed by exposure to a dangerous banned pesticide. Andréa frequently uses her Spanish speaking abilities and background to represent Spanish-speaking clients in various types of cases.
Andréa remains dedicated to helping people who are suffering from what is often the most traumatic event in their lives and believes compassion, empathy, and zealous advocacy form the basis of a successful relationship with each client.
