Andrew Maurodis’ representation of municipalities runs deep; for over 30 years, he has served as City Attorney to both the City of Deerfield Beach and the City of Parkland. Andrew is also the Broward County Planning Council’s attorney, a position he has held since 1996.
Andrew serves as special counsel to cities in Broward County and advises on land use and zoning issues, affordable housing projects, code enforcement, regulatory oversight, procurement, and Sunshine law matters. As home sharing platforms like Airbnb have gained popularity, Andrew represents municipalities in protecting the interests of residential neighborhoods.
Andrew was instrumental in developing urban core policies for the Fort Lauderdale Downtown Development Authority that helped to spur downtown development during a period when the strict application of state transportation and traffic regulations were impeding development.
Andrew graduated from the University of Miami Law School and was appointed a Graduate Fellow at Columbia University, where he received a Master’s Degree in Public Law and Government. He has received the highest ranking with regard to legal ability and ethics from Martindale-Hubbell and has been listed as one of the top governmental lawyers in South Florida by the South Florida Legal Guide.
Andrew has lectured on land use, zoning and the Sunshine Law at Florida Atlantic University’s (FAU) Institute of Government.
