Andrea Green has made the decision to step back from the daily practice of law. She will continue to be associated with Jacobs & Crumplar, P.A., although in a somewhat different role (i.e. consulting on individual cases, as needed). For all Andrea’s former clients we would hope that if you have a new legal matter that you contact Jacobs & Crumplar, P.A
Andrea G. Green earned her bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Binghamton, and her law degree from Northeastern University School of Law in Boston. She is admitted to practice in both Delaware and Maryland and is also admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for Delaware and Maryland, the Third and Fourth Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the United States Supreme Court.
She is a member of the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association and the Delaware State Bar Association. Her community involvement includes past service on the Board of Directors (during the 2010-2011 fiscal year, as President) of Community Legal Aid Society, Inc. which provides legal services to the indigent population in Delaware. Andrea completed three full three-year terms on the Board ending in 2017. She has also served the Combined Campaign for Justice as Co-Chair for Sussex County in past years.
After graduating from law school, Andrea initially worked with migrant farmworkers in Maryland and Delaware through the Legal Aid Bureau, after which she worked for 17 years for the UAW Legal Services Plans handling consumer matters for UAW members. Thereafter, her legal work continued with a private firm where she handled consumer bankruptcy matters as well as workers’ compensation and personal injury. She opened her own office in Millsboro, Delaware in 2010 and, in 2019, joined Jacobs & Crumplar.
Andrea currently focuses her practice on workers’ compensation and personal injury matters. She has handled cases at administrative levels and in Delaware courts. She has also handled matters in federal court at both the District and Circuit Court levels.
Given her prior experience in bankruptcy matters, Andrea has presented at both Delaware and national continuing legal education seminars on consumer bankruptcy. More recently, she has participated in presentations on Delaware workers’ compensation.
Andrea has lived in Delaware since 2000, and, since moving to Milton, Delaware in 2012, has been active in clean water and public health concerns in Sussex County.
