Andrew M. Kuntz


After beginning my career at the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, I decided to join Pashman Stein Walder Hayden because I knew that it would be an exciting and rewarding opportunity. What makes Pashman Stein unique is its emphasis on attorney development – something that is exhibited by the collection of extremely talented attorneys in every practice group at the firm. Since joining the firm as a litigation associate, I have been integrally involved in highly complex matters and work side-by-side with remarkably accomplished attorneys. This opportunity has allowed me to enhance my litigation skills beyond what I could have envisioned.


Prior to joining the Firm, Andrew served as a Deputy Attorney General in the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, Division of Law, for six years. As a Deputy, Andrew represented the New Jersey Department of Transportation, New Jersey Transit Corporation, and the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities in Eminent Domain, Tort, and Administrative litigation. Additionally, Andrew counseled the Board of Public Utilities on its clean energy initiatives and procurement of professional services. Notably, Andrew counseled the Board on its solicitation and award of 1,100 MW of offshore wind generation. He also advised the Board on the application of federal and state laws to electric and natural gas transmission projects, rate design, and consumer protection.

Andrew clerked for the Honorable Ariel A. Rodríguez, during his assignment to the New Jersey Supreme Court for the 2012-2013 term. As a law student, Andrew served as an intern for the Honorable Jaynee LaVecchia of the New Jersey Supreme Court and as an intern for the Honorable Morris Stern, Bankruptcy Judge for the District of New Jersey.

Andrew received his J.D., cum laude, from Rutgers School of Law-Newark and was inducted into the Order of the Coif. While attending law school, he served as the Managing Notes and Comments Editor for the Rutgers Race & the Law Review and as a clinical law student in the Rutgers Urban Legal Clinic.
