Guy D’Andrea is a 2008 graduate of Widener University School of Law and a graduate of Loyola University Maryland. During law school, Guy was actively involved in trial advocacy: he served as an executive board member of the Trial Advocacy Honor Society, and he was a finalist in the National Trial Competition and the Hugh B. Pearce Trial Competition.
Prior to joining Laffey, Bucci, & Kent, Guy served as an assistant district attorney in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. For over eight years, he litigated complex, high-profile criminal cases, including more than 80 jury trials and 500 bench trials. Guy’s impressive trial abilities were recognized early on, resulting in his promotion to the Homicide Unit in record time. There, he prosecuted dozens of homicide defendants, including the infamous “Philadelphia Craigslist killer” and murderers who targeted transgender women.
Guy also served as the Assistant Director of Training at the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. In that role, he helped train all new assistant district attorneys in the 600-person office; presented at nearly a dozen CLE programs; and spearheaded the office’s adoption and utilization of technology in preparing and presenting cases.
In his spare time, Guy serves as an Adjunct Professor at the Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law, teaching a course in advanced trial advocacy with an emphasis on courtroom technology. He also coaches several mock trial teams a year—a number of which have won recognition in the past for their trial skills in regional and national competitions.
