Andrea brings humor, creativity, and a lot of sarcasm to the table. She is new to this and has been solo for about 1 year and 10 months. Her business recently expanded, and she is in the process of buying a commercial space. She also brings a fresh perspective. Her work and clients bring a lot of joy- it’s a type of fulfillment she doesn’t get from her marriage or her children.
She is an attorney who practices in Poughkeepsie, New York, and throughout the Hudson Valley. Prior to opening her own practice, she was employed as an associate at local law firms where she practiced in the areas of Elder Law, Estate Planning, Education Law, and Landlord/Tenant litigation.
Andrea regularly lectures on topics pertaining to education law, Medicaid planning, Estate Planning, and updates to the landlord/tenant laws. She has litigated in local, state, and federal court on behalf of clients as well as in multiple administrative forums.
She chose to open her own practice so that she could provide each client with the personalized attention they deserve and so she could draft custom retainer agreements for her clients to accommodate their needs and financial circumstances. When you retain Gellen Law, you can feel confident that Andrea personally will attend to your file. That you will hear her voice on the other side of the phone, not a recording or a paralegal. She works tirelessly for her clients – your goals are her goals. Your triumphs are her triumphs.
Andrea resides in Poughkeepsie, New York with her husband, David, and their children, Isaac and Eleanor. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, traveling, and hiking.
