About Andrew

Learn Andrew’s areas of practice.

I created Malatesta Law for one reason - to represent individuals who have been subjected to unlawful conduct by their employers.

I am passionate about fighting for my clients and standing up to employers for their violations of the law. I strongly believe that employees deserve to be treated fairly and that no individual should be discriminated against, retaliated against, or harassed at work. I also believe that every employee deserves to be paid all of the wages they are owed, and provided all meal and rest breaks that they are entitled to, for each day that they work. When an employer does not uphold its obligations under the law, I vigorously fights for my clients so that they receive the compensation they deserve.

Because I only represents employees in employment law matters, I have a deep understanding of employment law. Through years of experience representing employees against employers, I know what it takes to successfully litigate an employee's claims and recover the damages my clients deserve.

I am fully committed to each of my clients and providing each client with the highest level of legal representation. I give each of my clients the time, attention, and resources that their case deserves.

I earned my undergraduate degree at the University of Michigan where I graduated with High Distinction and I received my Juris Doctor from the UCLA School of Law.

Good quality lawyer
He gave my case a chance and got me great results. I'm very happy Mr Malatesta. Communication was up to par, he stayed on top of things, always kept me updated. He never pissed me off like the others. I thought I should definitely make an effort to leave a review and let others know that this is a good lawyer that I highly recommend. Thanks again.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Working with Andrew Malatesta was a pleasure. He is extremely passionate and professional. He kept me in the loop via email and phone as the litigation went on. He always kept my best interest in mind and it paid off because he managed to settle my case in a few months. The man will bend over backwards to help his clients. Thank you, Andrew!

Client
I had a great experience working with Andrew as my attorney. He is very honest and fought for me. He is an expert and very knowledgable in all matters relating to employment law and quickly was able to answer my initial questions and set a plan to proceed to get me justice against my former employer. I would highly recommend working with him.

Stellar performance
Working with Andrew was a great experience, he took the time to listen and then went the extra miles to bring the case to resolution. From day one he always took my calls and explained everything in detail. I felt very comfortable during the whole process and ultimately in the end I was more than happy with the settlement he acquired, everything he said or promised, he delivered!...I couldn’t recommend a better attorney.

David vs Goliath in an Orange Apron
Andrew Malatesta represented me going through an arduous process of holding my previous employer accountable for wrongful termination. From start to finish I had a clear concise idea of where I stood and what lay ahead. It was his insight and experience that let me know I chose right. After winning and almost a year later we still keep in touch. I refer friends and family to him for all matters related to employment law.

Very Helpful!
Andrew was very helpful and kind. He made sure that I understood how the process was going to be. I was let go from where I use to work due to a car accident I was in. He went out of his way to get us the best settlement we were able to get.
