Andy is a founding member of Maloney Lauersdorf Reiner and has helped our firm grow into one of the premier litigation firms in the Pacific Northwest.  Andy is also a former prosecutor with the Multnomah County District Attorney’s Office in Portland, Oregon, and continues his commitment to public service through frequent pro bono representation of victims and survivors of exploitation, sex abuse, and domestic violence.  He is also an active supporter of the Forensic Justice Project, which is working hard to promote consistent use of scientifically valid evidence in Oregon courtrooms.  When he is not advocating on behalf of our clients or our community, Andy enjoys playing golf and softball, skiing, a good book, and following Wisconsin Badgers football, basketball, and hockey.
