DeFusco Law

Andrew DeFusco cares deeply about his clients and community.

F

or Andrew DeFusco, law is a family affair. Andrew and his wife Bryn are both attorneys who, in 2016, founded DeFusco Law, a referralbased personal injury law/wrongful death practice. The husband and wife duo pride themselves on not being a run-of-the-mill practice that pushes for a quick settlement, but instead provide empathy and closure to persons experiencing lifealtering injuries or grief after losing a loved one in a preventable accident. Andrew emphasizes that DeFusco Law is a referral-based practice and not high volume. He and Bryn take time to get to know clients in order to serve their legal needs in the most beneficial and personalized manner. They owe every client to the sparkling reputation they have garnered through past cases. Because their primary marketing technique is old-fashioned wordof-mouth, they thrive as a low-volume firm providing personalized service to clients often during the lowest point in their lives.

Clients come to DeFusco Law with devastating injuries after accidents. Or, more tragically, the families of victims of fatal accidents come to their firm seeking justice. Andrew feels motivated by clients who have suffered life-altering injuries yet refuse to let the injuries define their future or prevent them from living a fulfilling life. He fondly recalls one client, who suffered a career-ending injury to her dominant arm, telling him, “This will not break me.” Andrew learned as a child to never give up. His parents divorced when he was a boy, and his mother worked as a legal secretary to provide for her five children. “As a child, my mother always told me that I could do whatever I wanted to do in life provided I was willing to put forth the effort,” he says. And the words define his practice to this day. He has distanced himself from what he describes as commercialized law, which means working harder to provide victims with the justice and closure they need to move forward, and live beyond the accident.

As successful lawyers, Andrew and Bryn are dedicated to giving back. In 2018, they established the Scottsdale Unified School District Teacher Stipend Program, which each year provides at least ten teachers in the SUSD with a stipend of at least $300 for school supplies. So far, they have donated nearly $20,000 worth of supplies. They are also active in the charities Arizona Center for Law in Public Interest as well as the New Life Center Domestic Violence Shelter. His wife serves on the boards for both organizations. Passionate about public education, DeFusco Law also supports the Arizona Pet Project, Coronado High School PTSO, and NotMyKid, among others. In his free time, you’ll find Andrew riding his bicycle and spending time with family and friends at the piano bar in his home! Contact at www.defuscolaw.com or 480.970.3000, 6945 E.
