Troutman Sanders has afforded me an opportunity to make a difference both in the business and community involvement elements of our business.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 30, 2012
As continued evidence of its quality talent, Troutman Sanders received another accolade this week, as associate counsel Andy Puls was recognized by the San Diego Daily Transcript as one of America’s Finest City’s Top Young Attorneys (http://www.sddt.com/microsite/youngattorneys12/finalist.cfm?f=N40X7ZJ1&_t=Andy+Puls#.UN7JMVHl2Cg). Through a peer nomination process, Andy was selected as one of only twelve attorneys practicing for one–two years with the characteristics who are: Hard-Working & Detail-Oriented, Knowledgeable & Enthusiastic, Ethical & Professional, and Committed to Furthering the Interests of Justice in Society.
Puls has had an impact both in the office and in the community. Focusing his efforts on business litigation while supporting the firm’s senior attorneys, he has been a key member of the team. Outside the office, his efforts with Transform San Diego—an organization that provides support to San Diego’s large homeless population—help many of our citizens in need. He also has helped build residential dwellings in Tijuana. He cites the interaction with people and the opportunity to make a difference as the main reasons he is so active in the community.
“It’s wonderful to be recognized as a leader amongst my peers here in the legal community in San Diego,” said Puls. “Troutman Sanders has afforded me an opportunity to make a difference both in the business and community involvement elements of our business, and I have enjoyed being able to do both to a level that would generate this recognition.”

Williams, III (Ret.) in the Appellate Division and the Settlement Court, respectively, and at The National Security Archive research institute in Washington, D.C.
