Los Angeles County Superior Court, Retired
Judge Andrew Kauffman has more than 25 years of judicial experience and has presided over more than 200 jury trials. Due to his extensive trial experience and his calm and patient manner, Judge Kauffman was often sought out to conduct voluntary settlement conferences. In that capacity, he was able to resolve construction defect cases involving multiple parties, disputes between antagonistic neighbors, claims against public entities and personal injury cases of every kind. On several occasions, he helped feuding family members reconcile longstanding differences and arrive at a settlement that had previously been thought to be impossible.
