Hi, my name is Andrew G. Watters. I am a radically honest, category-defying polymath based in my hometown of San Mateo, California, USA. I have a law degree from U.C. Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco, a bachelor's degree from UCLA, and fifteen to twenty years of professional experience in multiple industries. Currently, I have my own law firm, photo studio, and IT/R&D/cinema laboratory. I offer legal services, digital cinema, and custom web application programming. My favorite compliment that I've gotten lately is: "you're a polite gunfighter with a silver tongue." Yeah, that's accurate...I've never been more flattered.
May 28, 2021 - I am delighted to announce that on August 1, 2021, my office will be moving from its current location in San Mateo back to 555 Twin Dolphin Drive in Redwood Shores. I was in this other location from 2016 to 2020 as a subtenant in an area law firm, but I ended up moving in early 2020 since I didn't do the hardware store in the space that I had acquired in San Mateo. The San Mateo office has been interesting, but it suffers from a number of issues including lack of conference space and thin residential walls. It would still be cool to do the hardware store there and see what happens, but I'm not tied to that. Meanwhile, they are setting up my James Bond villain-level office in the new location, which is a Class A property with a premium-level experience. I can't wait to get the arcade machine and a powered, networked conference table set up. This will be the first office I've ever had that's perfect, and which will also give me the option of doing video depositions entirely in-house whenever I want. It's all coming together really well. Shout-outs to Mark Courson at Newmark and Vahe Soghomonian at Hudson Pacific Properties for working with me on this.

Warnings. These are products and services I strongly urge you not to use:
Dell UltraSharp 8K monitor - the ultimate workstation display, and perfect for editing 4K and 8K video. This product seemed promising, but it turned out to be defective in design and disappointing in reliability. Replaced twice under warranty and failed in less than a year each time. I am not only deleting this endorsement; I am also warning you against buying this product.
