Anthony Andrews, Assistant Chief Counsel
U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Office of the Principal Legal Advisor, San Francisco, California
I began my career in community corrections in 2006 with a state parole board where I worked as a Senior Attorney (Assistant General Counsel). I worked for that state parole board for several years where I learned about community corrections and enjoyed litigating cases, providing legal advice, and worked on criminal justice issues. I was a lawyer in private practice as well as a state attorney general’s office before joining federal probation. Before accepting my current position, I served the United States Government and federal judiciary as a United States Probation Officer for more than 10 years, and more than 4 of those years as a Supervisory United States Probation Officer leading/overseeing federal probation officers in complex federal presentence investigations and working with various stakeholders, including: assistant United States attorneys, case agents, the United States Marshals Service, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, defense counsels, federal judges, and judicial staff. My legal experience includes immigration law, civil litigation, appeals, post-conviction/collateral criminal proceedings, administrative law, and asset forfeitures in state and federal courts. I have also provided legal course instruction to state parole examiners. I am a graduate of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) and Initial Probation and Pretrial Training (IPPT) program in Charleston, South Carolina and Office of the Principal Legal Advisor 101 Training in Irving, Texas.
