ANDY SCHOLL LAW, P.C.

I grew up in Albuquerque, graduated from Eldorado High School, and studied American and Latin American History at the University of Kansas. I also played first base and outfield for the varsity baseball team. Rock Chalk Jayhawk! After KU, I spent two summers playing and coaching baseball in Eskilstuna, Sweden and then spent several more years working as an International Envoy Coach for Major League Baseball in South Africa, Germany, Indonesia, Singapore and China. These were life-changing experiences, to say the least.

I came home to New Mexico and attended the University of New Mexico School of Law. My practice focuses on civil litigation with an emphasis in medical negligence and personal injury litigation with a particular interest in cases involving eye injuries caused by optometrists or ophthalmologists.

I work up every case as though it is going to trial. As a result, most don't. I have successfully appeared before the New Mexico Court of Appeals and have successfully argued in the New Mexico Supreme Court, which was an absolute thrill.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing guitar, running and being outside with my beautiful wife Cara Scholl D.D.S. and our adorable kids.
