Andrew Wipper

Associate Attorney
Brainerd, Minnesota

I grew up in Palmer Township, just southeast of St. Cloud, MN. After attending St. Cloud State University to receive a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice Studies, I worked as a juvenile probation officer, and paralegal before returning to school to receive my law degree from Hamline University School of Law.

Prior to joining Ed Shaw Law I have worked on and appeared in court with clients in a number of areas including: child protection matters, family matters, and criminal matters.

Outside of practicing law, I enjoy spending time with my wife, six year old daughter, and baby boy. I also enjoy doing a variety of sporting and outdoor activities all year round.
