As a child, Andrea Carroll spent her allowance purchasing books of floor plans, tracing them and altering them for hours. While there are more direct career paths into real estate development and community planning, Andrea took a detour to law school.
Andrea began her legal career as a prosecutor for the City of Boise. After a significant trial record, she shifted her practice to municipal law. She established an expertise in land use at the City of Boise, working closely with city planners and governing bodies such as the Planning & Zoning Commission and Historic Preservation Commission. She also provided legal support to the Housing & Community Development Division, which directly provides federally-assisted public housing to hundreds of Boise residents in addition to other programs designed to support affordable housing.
Andrea left her career in public service for private practice because she saw a public need for additional land use expertise. She wanted to provide that expertise with the flexibility of services offered by a small practice.
