Tanner Andrews

Tanner Andrews, P.A.

Tanner Andrews started his professional career as a self-proclaimed “computer guy”. He worked for many years in the field of technology until a slump in the industry inspired him to fulfill his lifelong dream of becoming an attorney.

Andrews was admitted to the Bar on April 25, 2006 and accepted his first pro bono case for full representation five months later. In the five years that he has been volunteering with Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida (CLSMF) he has donated an astonishing 700 hours of pro bono time to help low income clients.

Andrews assists residents who find themselves in private landlord/tenant legal issues, but due to income restrictions are unable to afford an attorney to represent them or provide advice. He is committed to making sure their rights are protected and landlords follow the letter of the law regarding evictions, prohibited practices, and security and deposit issues. In addition to accepting cases, he volunteers at CLSMF’s monthly legal advice clinic in DeLand. Andrews was instrumental in establishing CLSMF’s recurring legal advice clinic by finding a location and recruiting other attorneys to volunteer. If this clinic was not offered, clients would have to travel more than 20 miles to CLSMF’s main office in Daytona Beach to receive assistance.

In Volusia and Putnam counties, Andrews volunteered for CLSMF’s Foreclosure Prevention Workshops where he provided legal advice to attendees who are struggling to keep their homes. Andrews was later able to provide pro bono representation to many of these clients and was able to resolve their issues.

On top of these accomplishments and efforts, Attorney Andrews has a “yes” spirit and never says no to any case referred to him by our program. Based on his sincere commitment and outstanding service, Andrews has been honored as Pro Bono Attorney of the Year for three consecutive years by CLSMF at the Volusia County Bar Annual Pro Bono Awards Ceremony. CLSMF is grateful to Tanner Andrews for the work he does in providing equal justice for all.
