Judith Andrews

Attorney (Of Counsel)

About Me

My practice focuses on nonprofit corporation law, tax-exempt organizations, and public finance. For more than 25 years, I have represented nonprofit organizations on corporate and tax exemption issues including incorporation and determination of tax-exempt status, legal obligations of directors, organizational structure and roles of board and staff, conversion, merger and affiliation issues, and federal tax-exemption issues.

I am a frequent speaker on nonprofit corporations and federal tax-exemption topics. In addition to serving as an adjunct professor at Seattle University School of Law, I lead workshops on the formation and maintenance of 501(c)(3) organizations for Communities Rise (formerly Nonprofit Assistance Center and Wayfind).
