Meet Attorney Andersen

I am originally from NYC. I was raised in Yonkers NY, son of an engineer and a school teacher. In applying to college I was accepted to Cornell University and University of Southern California commonly known as USC

Starting around the age of 4 dad had me doing Algebra on a blackboard and playing chess. I don't claim to be a genius but I scored a 162 IQ in High School. I've never lost a jury trial in the State of New York. My first employment as a lawyer was with the San Diego Department of Defender Services and subsequently as a Chief Public Defender in PA. After a long win streak at trial I left the PD's office to enter private practice across the States of PA and New York.

  Why Hire a Lawyer?

The vast majority of Assistant Public Defenders are committed to serving the interest of system insiders, not you as defendant. As a defendant appearing before a court there is an unwritten presumption that you are guiity as charged. Statements and affidavits of police witnesses are accepted at face value. Your assistant public defender doesn't want to make waves or appear to be a monkey wrench in a system geared towards making you plead. Defending charges to the fullest extent of the law, creates a demand on judicial and system resources, which if utilized by your public defender could result in accusations of bad judgment and impair the lawyers career.

  What Makes a Good Trial Lawyer?

Aside from basic skills, such as how to ask a proper question, when to object to improper lines of questioning, there are some other more ineffable qualities that make the difference between winning and losing. Have you ever run into someone who has "sold" you on a point of view? Wouldn't it be great if that person had a license to practice law and could defend you?

  Can I have my charges dismissed without a trial?

Rarely will any lawyer be able to get criminal charges dropped altogether. Often we can get you a "plea bargain" that can result in a conditional dismissal of your charges or even an "adjournment in contemplation of dismissal" which is an outright dismissal after a period of time

  Why go to Trial?

The only good reason to go to trial is because you are innocent. Wrongfully charged, for example you are accused of a rape where there was consent.

  What type of cases have you actually won?

Some of the Jury Trials have included charges of Involuntary Manslaughter, Attempted Criminal Homicide, Homicide by Motor Vehicle DUI related, Rape, Sex Abuse1, Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon, Robbery, Burglary, Larceny, Reckless endangerment, endangering the welfare of children, causing or risking a catastrophe, obstruction of justice, resisting arrest, tampering with witnesses, scheme to defraud, foregery, perjury, and more..

  How are you paid

We are paid by the client or his circle or resources, We accept credit cards, and in some cases may be able to obtain court appointment if resources are exhausted..

You Have 24 Basic Rights
