Andrew Nantz’s success is predicated on a simple philosophy that transcends both clients and his practice of law: Be organized, be approachable, and most of all, be real. People can see through the charade presented by many lawyers who give the industry a bad name and a basis for well-founded attorney jokes.
Andrew credits much of his success in the courtroom with judges and juries to the simple philosophy of “being real.” With Andrew, you can always trust that he will give the complete story, even if it is not exactly what you want to hear. He learned early in his career that clients want to know what is really going on with their case. Sugar-coating a problem leads only to heartache and dissatisfaction later.

Andrew Nantz was born and raised in St. Louis, where he graduated from Christian Brothers College High School before earning his undergraduate degree from the University of Missouri – Columbia’s prestigious School of Journalism in 1994. He attended the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law and was admitted to the Missouri Bar in 1999 and the Kansas Bar in 2000. In addition to those state courts, he is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for Western and Eastern Missouri and the United States District Court of Kansas.
Andrew’s entire legal career is focused on civil litigation. Immediately after the bar exam, he joined a regional insurance defense firm. Insurance defense provided great training and insight regarding how insurance companies operate. Andrew was involved in rigorous parts of lawsuits, including several jury trials, very early in his attorney career.
This training and experience set the groundwork for forming his own law firm in July 2003, a litigation firm primarily handling plaintiffs’ work. Andrew then joined a local firm specializing in serious personal injury and wrongful death as a partner in June 2012. However, he missed being the “captain of his own ship” and ventured back on his own in April 2015 to start The Nantz Law Firm, LLC. But a solo practice was not his ultimate goal, so he formed Votava, Nantz & Johnson in April 2016.
Andrew is experienced in a broad range of litigation, including car and truck accidents, wrongful death, claims resulting in catastrophic injury, medical negligence, legal malpractice, insurance disputes, and business-to-business disputes.
He has been voted as a “Super Lawyer” and named to the “Best of the Bar” by his peers every year for more than 10 years.
Andrew is married with two children. In his free time, you can find him outdoors fishing at his cabin.
