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. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  2. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  3. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  4. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.

  5. Dear Fan, let me help you correct the title to your post. "ACLU is [Left] most of the time" will render it accurate. Just google it if you doubt that I am, err, "right" about this: "By the mid-1930s, Roger Nash Baldwin had carved out a well-established reputation as America’s foremost civil libertarian. He was, at the same time, one of the nation’s leading figures in left-of-center circles. Founder and long time director of the American Civil Liberties Union, Baldwin was a firm Popular Fronter who believed that forces on the left side of the political spectrum should unite to ward off the threat posed by right-wing aggressors and to advance progressive causes. Baldwin’s expansive civil liberties perspective, coupled with his determined belief in the need for sweeping socioeconomic change, sometimes resulted in contradictory and controversial pronouncements. That made him something of a lightning rod for those who painted the ACLU with a red brush." http://www.harvardsquarelibrary.org/biographies/roger-baldwin-2/ "[George Soros underwrites the ACLU' which It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn to its Advisory Board." http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1237 "The creation of non-profit law firms ushered in an era of progressive public interest firms modeled after already established like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People ("NAACP") and the American Civil Liberties Union ("ACLU") to advance progressive causes from the environmental protection to consumer advocacy." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cause_lawyering
