Andrew Boran is an experienced litigator, having spent the first twenty years of his career in the insurance industry. He has served as a prosecutor, investigator, appraiser, manager, and process leader. This background not only makes him formidable in court, but his knowledge of insurance law helps his clients navigate their coverage and policies to maximize their compensation.

“After 20 years in the insurance industry, I am happpy to be on the right side of injury law.”


Andy’s experience as a prosecutor, investigator, appraiser, manager, and process leader places him in a unique position to represent the interests of his clients. The selection of an attorney cannot guarantee a particular outcome, but Andy negotiates satisfying settlements when appropriate and successfully represents his clients at trial when needed.


“I don’t work in law for the recognition or accolades; I focus on giving my clients the best experience and results.”


Andy has tried cases and argued in favor of the rights of his clients in almost every court in Virginia.  He has appellate experience having handled cases from General District Courts, Circuit Courts, and the Supreme Court of Virginia. Prior to attending law school, Andy worked for a major national insurer. He has extensive knowledge of insurance law and can help his clients navigate the intricacies of insurance coverage in order to maximize their compensation.

Mr. Boran, like all Rutter Mills attorneys, is a skilled litigator. His unique experience working for the insurance companies gives him a leg up on the opponent during negotiations and at trial. After years of seeing how insurance companies treat their own clients like a number, Andy came to be a plaintiff’s attorney to defend the rights of those same people the big companies were taking advantage of.

One of his clients recently wrote, “I was unfortunate enough to be in a car accident caused by someone texting and driving a couple years ago… after working directly with the at-fault insurance company for a couple months, I quickly realized they were attempting to take advantage of me. I called Rutter Mills and was blown away by their service from the very first phone call. Not only did they win my case, every single person I spoke to and worked with (starting with my attorney, Andrew Boran), were extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and caring. These people are the best of the best.”

Rutter Mills did exactly what I needed. Took all the pressure off of me, negotiated a fair settlement, and treated me royally in the process. At a low point in my mood, they even sent me cookies! My attorney Mr Boran, Kathy, Julie and the rest made a bad situation as painless as possible. I feel lucky to have chosen them after my accident. Thanks Rutter Mills team
