At Andrade Law Offices, we have a passion for the law and compassion for our clients. We have lived by that motto since we opened our doors in Santa Barbara in 1987. We have been practicing from the same location on Equestrian Avenue in Santa Barbara, California for more than 25 years. Our founding attorney, Steven R. Andrade, has extensive trial experience and a history of recovering multi-million dollar settlements and verdicts. This gives our personal injury clients an advantage, as insurance companies will offer higher settlements to clients represented by lawyers with outstanding trial records. With his experience as a former prosecutor, Santa Barbara Criminal Lawyer Steven R. Andrade is knowledgeable about both sides of the criminal justice system. This knowledge and experience, combined with Mr. Andrade’s legal skills, works to the advantage of our DUI and criminal defense clients. We make prosecutors prove their cases and we fight aggressively for our clients.READ MORE
"My consultation with Mr. Andrade was great. I left the office feeling confident that he will take care of my case and that he knew what he was doing. He laid out a strategy for me and walked me through the steps of what would happen next. The office staff worked out a manageable payment plan with me."
