Indiana family law attorney and ICLEF Family Law Institute Chairperson Andrew C. Mallor, a founding partner of Mallor Grodner, has been elected into membership in the American College of Family Trial Lawyers (ACFTL). The ACFTL is a select national group of 100 of the best family law trial lawyers from across the country. He was chosen by his peers based upon his litigation skills and courtroom abilities. Mallor is the first, and only, Indiana lawyer admitted to the organization.
A leading family lawyer in Indiana for over 35 years, Mallor leads his firm’s private client division, with some client relationships spanning three generations. In addition to family law matters such as adoption, divorce, matrimonial agreements, and child custody matters, Mallor has significant expertise in matters involving wealth management, including trust and estate planning and probate matters, elder law, business succession planning, and premarital agreements.
An early advocate of collaborative law, Mallor has built a reputation in the family law practice area by advocating for clients and doing what is in their best interest. “Divorce is a difficult process and our goal is to make it as easy as possible,” said Mallor. “When we have determined that a divorce is the only option, we want to reach a meaningful and fair settlement and avoid the expensive financial and emotional costs of a trial.”
Looking to the Future
As a diplomat with the American College of Family Trial Lawyers there is opportunity to collaborate with some of the best family trial lawyers in the country as well as being involved in the uppermost level of continuing legal education.
Beyond his own personal development, he enjoys giving back to the industry. Mallor is the Chair for ICLEF’s Annual Family Law Institute. “I value the opportunity to give back to this career what it has given me,” said Mallor. “If I can lead by example and mentor the next generation of lawyers, I can only hope they will continue to embrace our approach to finding creative and cost-effective solutions for our client’s legal issues.”
Throughout his career Mallor has garnered significant professional honors. He has received an AV® Preeminent™ designation by Martindale-Hubbell for having the highest possible ratings in both legal ability and ethical standards. He is also a past recipient of the Gale Phelps Award, which recognizes an Indiana lawyer with exceptional service to the profession, highest level of competence, raising the level of professionalism and civility in domestic relations matters, and high moral character.
