An attorney licensed to practice law, Andrew Bruskin is a law school graduate from the College of William & Mary and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Stony Brook University, magna cum laude.   Andrew currently works for a small boutique law firm that specializes in criminal law and family law issues. He heads the marketing division of the firm, bringing in an additional five clients per week through the use of social networking, internet marketing initiatives and newsletter distributions. He drafts various legal court motions and preps the client for their courtroom appearance. During his time in the United States Senate, Andrew reviewed written legislation before it was introduced to the press, the public and other lawmakers. He researched numerous topics, which included public policy, criminal justice reform and economic development initiatives. A member of college democrats, Andrew was appointed associate justice, and then chief justice, of the Stony Brook Undergraduate Student Government Supreme Court, where he was one of seven justices that presided over several controversial impeachment trials. In this capacity, Andrew was also appointed to serve on the Student Judiciary (later elected chair of the entire student judiciary system) and the academic judiciary. He was later appointed by the student government to serve on the University Senate, where he worked with the Stony Brook University President and other university officials on improving campus life and safety. Stony Brook has since expanded its dorms to accomodate more students on its campus, with more of its students choosing to live on campus. At the age of 19, Andrew was elected president of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS), a 700,000 member national honor society that invites freshmen and sophomores who are in the top ten percent of their class.  Throughout his term, Andrew gave speeches at induction ceremonies and keynote remarks at organizational functions throughout the country.  NSCS successfully raised five million dollars from its membership drives.  Andrew was then elected to the State University of New York (SUNY) Student Assembly, where he fought against tuition hikes on behalf of the 650,000 constituents. These hikes would have prevented lower income and minority students from attending one of America’s most affordable higher education system. Andrew was one of 238 recipients statewide to receive the SUNY Chancellor’s Award. He is a recipient of Stony Brook’s Outstanding Achievement in Leadership, Outstanding Accomplishment in Undergraduate Activity and the Provost Award for Academic Excellence.  He was also presented with the Distinguished Community Service Award upon graduation by the Stony Brook University Foundation for his contributions to the campus community and the rest of the country.  Andrew is a lifetime member of Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and is recognized in numerous publications, including the Houston Chronicle, U.S. News and World Report and the American Constitutional Society on public speaking, leadership management and various criminal, constitutional and political issues. He is cited in two books and has appeared on several TV and radio talk shows.  Andrew was knighted into the Order of St. Michael for his commitment to community service and his dedication to helping others. He was inducted as a member of Club Jetset International.
