Andy Olivo attended the University of Houston School of law and was licensed to practice law in 1973.

After graduation from the University of Houston, Andy was an intern in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Houston, Texas. Thereafter, he served as an Army JAG officer serving throughout the world to include the U.S. Military Academy (West Point), Europe, Asia, South America and the U.S. He served for approximately 30 years on active duty and reserve and retired at the rank of Colonel. In this capacity he handled numerous cases representing soldiers and the U.S. government.

He started his legal practice in North Texas in 1988 as an in-house counsel for an insurance company. He handled a number of business matters. He was also appointed to represent juveniles since he himself was raised in an orphanage and graduated from Father Flanagan’s Boys Home (Boys Town) in Omaha, NE and was aware of juvenile issues from a very young age. He has represented juveniles and parents involving Child Protective Services cases.

He served a number of terms on the Carrollton City Council and again represented persons involving businesses with government entities. He also represented families in the community with their estates to include wills and probate. It seems that as time goes by, more and more people are requiring help in taking care of their estates and eventually resulting in or avoiding probate if possible.

Andy is a member of several professional associations and Courts, including:

  • Dallas Bar Association
  • State Bar of Texas
  • Supreme Court of Texas
  • U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas
  • U.S. Court of Military Appeals
  • U.S. Supreme Court

Andy has been married to his wife, Lynn, for more than 45 years and they have one son, Andrew Carlton Olivo, who is also an attorney. Andrew Carlton graduated from University of North Texas and St. Mary’s Law School and is a member of the Texas and Massachusetts Bars.
