About me

Andrea Hayduk graduated from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature in 1999. Upon graduation she attended the University of Tennessee College of Law.   After receiving her J.D. in May of 2002, she moved to Washington D.C. and went to work as an associate attorney in the firm of DUI defense guru, Leonard R. Stamm. Under his direction, Ms. Hayduk was immersed in the practice of DUI defense. She spent most of her time in court and tried multiple cases per week, both in court and before the motor vehicle administration. Additionally, she attended numerous training seminars throughout the country on DUI defense and was active in the Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney's Association. In the spring of 2008, Ms. Hayduk relocated to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where she joined the firm Kennedy, Koontz and Farinash where she began doing bankruptcy work to supplement her criminal practice.  In December 2013, Ms. Hayduk co-founded Farinash & Hayduk.  The firm concentrates on bankruptcy issues, debtor/creditor rights, DUI/DWI defense and general criminal defense.


Ms. Hayduk is a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the National College for DUI Defense.  Ms. Hayduk  is among the very few Tennessee lawyers who have completed a 24 hour course in the administration of NHTSA's standardized field sobriety tests. She later attended a 32 hour instructor's course, and since that time has co-instructed three NHTSA based classes for other lawyers.


Ms. Hayduk lives on Signal Mountain with her husband and three small children. She loves being a mom and spending time with family.

Andrea stays on the cutting edge of the latest in Criminal Defense generally and DUI Defense specifically.
