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. So the prosecutor made an error and the defendants get a full remedy. Just one short paragraph to undo the harm of the erroneous prosecution. Wow. Just wow.

  2. Wake up!!!! Lawyers are useless!! it makes no difference in any way to speak about what is important!! Just dont tell your plans to the "SELFRIGHTEOUS ARROGANT JERKS!! WHO THINK THEY ARE BETTER THAN ANOTHER MAN/WOMAN!!!!!!

  3. Looks like you dont understand Democracy, Civilized Society does not cut a thiefs hands off, becouse now he cant steal or write or feed himself or learn !!! You deserve to be over punished, Many men are mistreated hurt in many ways before a breaking point happens! grow up !!!

  4. It was all that kept us from tyranny. So sad that so few among the elite cared enough to guard the sacred trust. Nobody has a more sacred obligation to obey the law than those who make the law. Sophocles No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor. Theodore Roosevelt That was the ideal ... here is the Hoosier reality: The King can do no wrong. Legal maxim From the Latin 'Rex non potest peccare'. When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal. Richard Nixon

  5. So men who think they are girls at heart can use the lady's potty? Usually the longer line is for the women's loo, so, the ladies may be the ones to experience temporary gender dysphoria, who knows? Is it ok to joke about his or is that hate? I may need a brainwash too, hey! I may just object to my own comment, later, if I get myself properly "oriented"
