Andrew M. Washburn
Andrew was destined to become an attorney because he is a problem-solver, who never leaves an issue outstanding or a stone unturned. Stemming from his years of experience playing rugby, where he competed in the national championships at both the high school and collegiate levels, Andrew knows the importance of utilizing effective communication and teamwork to achieve collective goals. When conferring with clients, he puts himself in their shoes and works diligently to ensure the matter reaches its successful conclusion.
Having worked on transactional matters early in his career, it was a natural path that led Andrew to practice real estate law. He takes pride in providing each client with a positive experience, whether it is the client’s first real estate transaction or one of many.
Prior to joining Underberg & Kessler LLP and returning home to the Rochester area that he knows and loves, Andrew was an entertainment lawyer in Manhattan. He also served as an intern at the Monroe County District Attorney’s Office. As an outstanding student at Fordham University, he was a Notes and Articles Editor for Fordham Law’s Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal and a Communications Editor for the Fordham Sports Law Forum. Andrew abides by a Robert Brault quote: “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Words to live by indeed.
