Andrew Mallor is the antidote to “bad lawyer” jokes. He strives to make the legal profession better through education and example. He has set a high bar for those practicing in family law. Andy leads by example in his practice, sharing his time and expertise with others about to enter the profession and through his involvement in the Bloomington community and local charities. He shines as an example to younger lawyers and constantly reaches back to help aspiring lawyers forward. His business savvy and legal intuition have earned Andy the moniker: a lawyer’s lawyer.

The best advice I ever received was
to do the hardest tasks first, whether calling a client with less than a great result or dealing with a difficult problem.

I wish I had known when I graduated law school that
Bill Oliver, my tax professor, would come work with me after retiring from IU. I would have asked him for a better grade in tax class.

My best stress reliever is
attending theater with my family.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be:
Ironically I am doing it. I own Andrew Davis Menswear and have two full-time jobs.

In 2012, I’d like to
take a long vacation in Italy with my wife, Jane.

The three words that best describe me are
family-centered, service-oriented and entrepreneurial.

In my community, I’m passionate about
supporting the local arts and theaters and contributing to not-for-profits that make a difference.

In the movie about my life,
I have no idea who would play me, but I want Spielberg to direct.

  1. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
