Andrew J. Hayden, Esq. General Counsel
From real estate transactions, purchases and lease agreements to inspections, appraisals and title insurance, this native New Yorker adds a little bit of that “East Coast Vibe” in every contract he writes and every one-liner he tells! After putting his East Coast days behind, Andy set his sights on the sunny skies of Los Angeles, where he received his law degree from Southwestern Law School. And with over 15 years of experience specializing in real estate law, Andy certainly knows the art of negotiation!
It also doesn’t hurt that he has a BA in psychology from Lafayette College (Easton, PA). Andy lives with his wife in the heart of Los Angeles, but you know what they say, “you can take the man out of New York, but you can’t take the New York out of the man!”.
