Andersen is a California State Bar certified specialist in estate planning, trust and probate law, assisting individuals and families with planning, drafting and implementing estate planning documents and representing clients in probate and trust administration. He also advises businesses, property owners and investors on wealth transfer and business succession and charitable gift planning. Andersen was previously with Perkins Coie's Seattle office.
This is Andersen's second stint with NCHC. He was an associate with the firm in the early 1990s when he was fresh out of law school. "We are very excited that John has returned to Nordman," says Randall H. George, partner and member of the firm's executive committee. "When John first came to our firm, we were impressed with him. Family reasons moved him to San Francisco and eventually Seattle. We're thrilled to have him back, bringing with him his unparalleled level of experience in estate and trust planning and probate."
Andersen is admitted to practice law in California and Washington and is authorized to practice before the Internal Revenue Service. He received his B.A. in history from UCLA in 1986 and J.D. in 1992 from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. Andersen is a member of trusts and estates sections of the California State Bar and the Ventura County Bar Association. He is a frequent speaker on estate planning topics.
"I had a wonderful experience at Nordman the first time," says Andersen. "I worked with colleagues whom I respected as I just started my practice. I'm glad to be back."
