Andrew J. Kelleher, Jr., co-founder of Kelleher + Holland, LLC, had a vision of legal services deeply rooted in high-level client services from the very inception of his career. He believes that nothing replaces old-fashioned hard work. That hard work has been focused on putting the client’s best interests first for 25 years.


Andy concentrates his practice in trust and estate law, business law, tax law and asset protection planning for high net worth business owners, executives and individuals. He enjoys the never-ending challenges of solving complex estate and tax planning puzzles for his clients. Being both an attorney and a CPA, he has earned the respect and trust of both clients and peers alike by never prescribing advice that he wouldn’t take himself.

Andy is proud of the top-notch talent the firm has attracted, and the high standards of excellent services they have set keeps clients coming back. He continues to lead by example by volunteering time to his alma mater and church groups.
