Born just south of Dallas, and true to his Texas roots, Andrew M. Lloyd fights proudly for families and justice. He exemplifies the attitude contained in the phrase - Don’t mess with Texas! He doesn’t let people mess with his clients, either. Big government and belligerent litigators threaten his clients’ lives, so he defends them. He’s a negotiator by birth and an attorney by trade, whose ultimate prowess and skill lie in the courtroom. He’s tenacious, witty, intelligent, and scrappy.  With a nickname like “Texas Spanker,” what else would you expect?

A former prosecutor and continuing Texas Super Lawyer for over a decade, he's been handling family law and criminal defense cases in front of Judges and juries for over 20 years with a finesse and charisma that leaves people in awe. He can change the pace of a case quickly, understanding the underpinnings of the justice system and the inner workings of a case file. He’s real. He’s personal. And he’s a fighter.

He has held top leadership positions in his local bar associations for years, was the Master of Ceremonies for over 5 of the annual Denton County Bench Bar Conferences, where all the local Judges and lawyers spend time learning the law. He’s been a guest speaker several times over the years at these and other legal conferences.

Outside of the courtroom, Andrew’s the ultimate family man and churchgoer. He’s a father of four awesome children and husband to his beautiful Inga. He enjoys cycling, running, racquetball, horse-back riding, shooting, soccer, music, and anything else that keeps him active! He’s also a martial artist, having learned the craft of Wing Tsun Kung Fu for many years and is currently training for a black belt in American Karate again.
