Scott W. Andrews is a Huntington native who was born and raised here and educated in local schools. Scott graduated from Huntington St. Joseph High School in 1980 before moving on to Marshall University, graduating in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism. After working in the local radio and TV market Scott entered law school at the University of Louisville and graduated in 1991.

Scott returned to Huntington to begin his legal career, working as an associate attorney for Jenkins Fenstermaker for over 2 years before going to work for Offutt Nord. There he worked from 1993-1999 as an associate attorney before becoming a partner in the firm.

Scott worked for insurance companies and their policyholders during that time, handling cases such as auto and truck accidents, products liability, asbestos defense, premises liability, industrial and workplace accidents, and insurance coverage disputes. During that time he achieved numerous verdicts in favor of his clients as a trial attorney, and also handled successful appeals at both the state and federal levels. Scott has also frequently lectured and authored seminar materials, primarily in the area of insurance coverage issues.

After almost 17 years at Offutt Nord, the last 11 as a partner, Scott left the firm to establish the firm of Hoover Andrews along with Jon D. Hoover. He represents injured persons in the areas of auto accidents, products liability, premises and workplace liability accidents, and is a trained mediator who helps other attorneys and their clients resolve their disputes. He is licensed in both West Virginia and Kentucky.

In his spare time, Scott enjoys spending time with his wife Sondra, son Zachary, and their dogs Chloe and Gianni. He also enjoys watching college and pro football, college basketball, and reading mystery thriller novels.
