    Andrew H. Turner  joined the firm in October of 2011 and became a partner in 2015. Mr. Turner came to the firm from the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, where he worked under civil rights legend Morris Dees. Mr. Turner served as a Senior Staff Attorney in SPLC's Immigrant Justice Project from 2005-2011. There he focused on representing low-wage migrant and immigrant workers in class action litigation of wage payment, human trafficking and civil rights claims.

    Mr. Turner began his legal career as a Staff Attorney at the Virginia Justice Center for Farm and Immigrant Workers, where he litigated wage payment, discrimination and workplace assault cases.

    Mr. Turner has published legal education materials concerning the intersection of labor and immigration law and has taught numerous continuing legal education courses in his field. He was a featured speaker at the 2011 convention of the National Employment Lawyers Association and at the 2017 conference of the AFL-CIO Lawyers' Coordinating Committee.

    Mr. Turner graduated cum laude from The New York University School of Law in 2002. During his time at NYU, he was awarded an Arthur Garfield Hays Fellowship in Civil Liberties and received the David Friedman Memorial Award for Outstanding Achievement in Evidence.
