Andrew Twietmeyer is a cum laude graduate of the University of Wisconsin Law School. Since starting practice in California in 2007, Mr. Twietmeyer has represented numerous individuals and businesses both large and small in civil litigation in California and Federal Courts at both the trial and appellate levels. Mr. Twietmeyer is admitted to practice in the States of California and Wisconsin, and he is a member of the bar of the United States District Courts for the Central and Eastern Districts of California, the Western District of Wisconsin, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.
Mr. Twietmeyer has practiced civil litigation in Los Angeles since 2007, first with the Century City Entertainment Law Firm of Glaser, Weil, Fink, Jacobs, Howard & Shapiro, LLC and later with the West Los Angeles firms of Leader Gorham and Richardson & Patel, LLP. During that time, Mr. Twietmeyer successfully represented both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of matters (both large and small) in State and Federal Court and in Arbitration. Mr. Twietmeyer has also negotiated the settlement of numerous business, employment, and personal disputes for his clients.
In 2015, Mr. Twietmeyer briefed and argued Cosentino vs. Fuller, et. al., G050923 (Cal. Ct. App., May 28, 2015) successfully overturning the dismissal (based on sovereign immunity) of his client's civil tort action against five elected tribal officials of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Mission Indians. The case sent shockwaves through Indian country as it held that tribal officials may be sued in their individual capacities for tortious conduct that exceeds the scope of their official authority. Since then, Mr. Twietmeyer has assisted tribal organizations and businesses in California with numerous matters in and out of court ranging from federal recognition bids, governance disputes, business formation, consumer claims, addressing and remediating online defamation, and otherwise counseling and assisting businesses and individuals on all aspects of their operation with an eye toward avoiding litigation and court through careful planning and contract drafting.
Excellent legal representation demands comprehensive understanding, frank communication, and scrupulous attention to the client’s individual needs and goals.

When Mr. Twietmeyer works your case, he knows the current status of the case from top to bottom, and when you call his office, he is the only attorney you will speak to—ever.

The successful outcomes highlighted above were all dependent on the specific facts of the particular case. The results in any other case will differ if based on different facts.
