Biography

Andre Pennington specializes in estate planning, wills, trusts, probate and trust administration. What makes Andre unique is that he has specialized estate planning training and experience from his time as an attorney for the United States Air Force, but also has extensive trial experience with over 75 jury trials to his credit at the state, military and federal level. This blend makes him uniquely qualified and able to effectively navigate the waters of your estate plan and administration.

Since 2011, Andre has lived in Surprise, Arizona.  He is married to his beautiful wife, Amanda, and has six children, two sons and four daughters. As a father, he rarely misses a family obligation and understands that family is the greatest gift a person can receive and that protecting their future is of paramount importance. With that sentiment, he uses his years of estate planning, trial experience and expertise to guide, navigate, and protect your family’s interests in their most difficult time.

He grew up in Southern California, graduating from California State University, Fullerton, and Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. He then started his legal career in 2006, as a trial attorney within the Colorado state courts. In 2007, he joined the United States Air Force and for four years engaged in estate planning and trial work. During that time, he was recognized by leadership as being within the top five percent of trial attorneys in the Air Force.

With a desire to have a more stable home life, he left active duty and transferred to the Air Force Reserves, where he is the rank of Major, and has been a trial advocacy instructor, government appellate counsel and estate planning attorney. Until 2014, Andre practiced as a federal trial attorney for the District of Arizona, when he left to take his current position and to go into private practice as a full-time estate planning, wills, trusts, and probate attorney.

Andre founded children’s homes dedicated to the well-being of foster children; he was appointed as a part-time Judge for the Maricopa County Justice Courts (2015-2017); and co-founded and is a Director for Arizona’s Children Coalition.  Andre is a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is an adult instructor and lifetime member at De Boa Jiu Jitsu Academy in Surprise, Arizona.
