Andrew Maloney joined Kreindler & Kreindler LLP in 1994 and is a 1985 graduate of Boston College and received his Juris Doctorate degree from Fordham University School of Law in 1988 where he was on the Dean’s List and a member of the Urban Law Journal. He was elected partner in January 2005.
Mr. Maloney focuses in aviation litigation as well as general products liability, medical malpractice and general negligence cases trying, mediating and appealing cases in state and federal courts throughout the country.
While at the firm, Mr. Maloney briefed and argued a case before the United States Supreme Court on the Westfall Act which governs scope of employment under the Federal Tort Claims Act for federal employees.
He has also published an article in the New York Law Journal on the government contractor defense reflecting some of this work on litigation against military contractors for the V-22 Osprey aircraft which is currently being deployed for the United States Armed Forces.
In addition to the many cases he has litigated at the firm, he participated in one of the largest personal injury settlements in the State of Connecticut involving a charter plane crash at the Bridgeport Airport and some of the largest recoveries under the Military Claims Act involving an Air Force plane crash in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
These complex litigations involved issues regarding the aircraft or component part design, manufacture, warnings and instructions, pilot error, Air Traffic Control error, weather and combinations thereof. Additionally, complex choice of law issues were often triggered.
Prior to coming to Kreindler & Kreindler LLP, Mr. Maloney was a federal prosecutor in the Southern District of New York conducting a variety of federal criminal investigations, trials and appeals working with the FBI, DEA, ATF, Secret Service, Postal Inspectors, NYPD and United States Marshals among other investigative agencies.
Consequently, he has represented victims of crime against their criminal assailants and third parties who had a duty to protect, most recently winning cases against a mental hospital for releasing a dangerous patient who shot and killed persons at a church; a night club bouncer who assaulted and hospitalized a patron; and a law firm who assisted an art fraud con man.
Mr. Maloney is admitted to practice in New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut and the District of Columbia, as well as the federal courts in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the Districts of Connecticut and Colorado, the Second and Third Circuits, the United States Supreme Court and U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
