EFTIHIOS EVAN G. ANDRONIS

Eftihios “Evan” G. Andronis is an associate attorney at Sioli Alexander Pino whose practice focuses on Admiralty & Maritime law, State and Federal Workers’ Compensation, and Insurance defense. Since joining Sioli Alexander Pino in 2014, Mr. Andronis has assisted in litigating these cases from start to finish. Additionally, Mr. Andronis has experience determining insurance coverage in property and liability claims.


Prior to his current practice, Mr. Andronis interned for the U.S. Coast Guard’s Legal Department. Through this position, he assisted Judge Advocates in the areas of admiralty & maritime law, administrative law, military justice and ethical considerations. He also reviewed area contingency plans involving Coast Guard responses to oil spill cleanup and search & rescue operations. Mr. Andronis also clerked for the Maritime Administration under the Department of Transportation in Washington, D.C. It was during that time Mr. Andronis received first-hand experience with the creation of Federal Regulations and the intent behind such regulations. At the Maritime Administration, Mr. Andronis worked with various statutes, regulations, and policies that included the Jones Act, Cargo Preference Act, and the TIGER grants program. Understanding how the public sector functions gives invaluable experience in determining congressional intent of the laws presented.


At the University of Miami School of Law, Mr. Andronis was a two-time participant of the Willem C. Vis International Arbitration Moot Court in Vienna, Austria. Over 300 teams from over 60 countries competed in the Moot Court competition’s written and oral arguments. In 2012, Mr. Andronis’ team made it to the round of 16. The experience taught Mr. Andronis legal systems outside of the United States, including Europe and South America, and how to use the cases in a persuasive manner. In light of his experience, Mr. Andronis continues to mentor and assist the moot court participants for both national and international competition.


Mr. Andronis also has a strong connection with his Greek heritage. As a first generation Greek-American, Mr. Andronis has always had an interest in current events impacting Greece and the European Union, including how those events affect trade in the United States and the process of resolving international disputes. Such interest gave Mr. Andronis the opportunity to serve on a panel of young Hellenes speaking on their views regarding the future of Hellenism at the American Hellenic Institute's convention in November 2013.
