Ep39. Part 1: The Path of a Juris Doctor with Andrew Werring, J.D.
Show Notes

Andrew E. Werring practices law in Atchison, Kansas and focuses his practice primarily in the areas of Creditors Rights, Criminal Defense, Business Organization, and Estate Planning and Administration.

In this episode Andrew shares what he is most passionate about when it comes to his practice and the law.  He also shares his thoughts on internships for law students akin to residencies for medical residents.  In this show I ask Andrew how realistic are the lawyers in TV shows are!  Ha, ha, ha!  Listen to this episode to find out his response and what advice he has for young lawyers looking to go out on their own.

Andrew is a graduate of Maur Hill Prep School (now Maur Hill-Mount Academy)
and earned his B.A. in History with a minor in Business Administration from Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.

In 2005 he graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law where he earned his Juris Doctorate in 2005.  Shortly there after, he returned to Atchison and began practicing in the Atchison County Attorney's Office where he gained invaluable experience prosecuting a wide variety of cases.  In 2007 he took the knowledge and experience he gained and set out to begin his own private practice.


Andrew was recently recognized for his contribution to the legal community by being nominated to serve as a District Court Judge for the First Judicial District to replace the Hon. Robert J. Bednar upon his retirement in January 2021. The nomination came after a result of an application process and selection by a nominating committee comprised of his peers from within the district as well as citizens from the district. The appointment is ultimately made by the Kansas Governor.

Although Andrew was ultimately not selected for the District Court Judge position, his
nomination affirms that his peers and his fellow citizens respect him and and his legal ability as a District Court Judge.
