Travieso Law is an established and premier law firm in New York and New Jersey. Travieso Law has created a distinctive niche by emphasizing personalized service, accessibility, transparency and unprecedented support for clients.

Mr. Travieso, who is fluent in Spanish, began his legal career in 2000 after graduating from Columbia University (B.A.) and Rutgers Law School (J.D.). Before opening his own firm, André garnered his business law expertise as a corporate attorney with employment at some of New York’s finest and most prestigious firms, including Kramer, Levin, Naftalis & Frankel, LLP, Brown & Wood, LLP and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP. At Kramer Levin, he specialized in corporate finance and capital markets.  Mr. Travieso is admitted to practice law in the state and federal courts of New York and New Jersey.

In addition to his successful law career, André is a public speaker, philanthropist, mentor, world traveler, avid reader, competitive athlete and champion for the underdog.  As a public speaker, André speaks to teens about striving for success, overcoming adversity and positive ways to interact with police officers. He also speaks to parents about keeping their kids safe on the internet, bullying and the importance of estate planning.

André supports many philanthropic organizations and has launched a campaign to collect used cell phones for domestic violence victims in Nairobi, Kenya. He also enjoys Crossfit and running marathons.  André has run and completed his hometown New York City Marathon and the Philadelphia Marathon. In his youth, André was an amateur boxer and traveled internationally as part of a National Boxing team.

André is a world traveler and has visited 43 countries and counting.  He ran with the bulls in Spain, rode a camel at the great pyramids of Giza in Egypt, hiked the trials to Machu Picchu in Peru, walked up the stairs of the Great Wall of China and swam with whales in the Dominican Republic.

When André isn’t busy in court, speaking, traveling or meeting with clients, he can be found at Super Bowls, Yankee Stadium, championship boxing matches in Las Vegas, museums, and Broadway plays. When asked what five items he would leave in a time capsule to represent his life, André replied – his passport, a pair of boxing gloves, Marvin Gaye’s music, the Seinfeld Box set and a pair of designer shoes representing his love affair with fashion.

He is also a nationally published author in the field of employee free speech and his legal insight and article Employee Free Speech Rights in the Workplace: Balancing the First Amendment Against Racist Speech by Police Officers has been cited by leading experts in the First Amendment field.

André is also an advocate for his hometown of the Bronx, New York—where he also has an additional satellite office to better serve his client base. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, the New Jersey State Bar Association, the Bronx County Bar Association, the Association of the Bar of the City of New York, the Puerto Rican Bar Association and the Metropolitan Black Bar Association.

Helpful & Knowledgeable
Mr. Travieso is one of those lawyers who goes above and beyond for their clients. I can to him to discuss a personal matter, not in his expertise, in which he promptly referred me to someone. In addition, he actively sought me out to make sure my questions were answered and if he could do anything else. Since then, I always to go back to him for referrals or basic questions.

Highly recommended
Mr. Travieso is not only an excellent lawyer, but he is a step above most other lawyers because of his great compassion and superb people skills. Mr. Travieso always pushes for the optimal results for his clients and never allows you to settle for bad results. I loved the fact that he was always very aggressive in his approach with my case. He successfully obtained a dismissal of my attempted murder case after many months of hard work on it. You can tell that Mr. Travieso is well connected and respected in the law community when you walk into the courthouse with him and you see the way he deals with judges and prosecutors. Plus, he is also very easy to get in touch with and always prompt in returning calls and emails even on the weekends or late at night. I highly recommend his law practice.

Excellent service!!
Andre was super helpful to me during the creation of business documentation to help me get my company going. He took the time and energy to explain everything and made sure that I understood the large and small print of everything I was signing. I then used Andre's services again for Will and Family medical documents that were seriously needed. Andre is excellent at the services that he provides.

Hard working, smart, common sense solutions.
I have known André Travieso since our years as junior lawyers at a large law firm in New York City many years ago. Since then I have followed his work and have had him represent my interests during a commercial transaction. André couples hard work and perspicacity with a common sense approach that gave me a fantastic result in my matter. I highly recommend Mr. Travieso’s services to anyone in need of a top notch lawyer.
