About me

Andrew W. Maron, a partner in Short Cressman & Burgess PLLC, focuses his practice on two principal areas: construction law, and municipal law.


Andy has experience in all types of civil litigation, large and small, state and federal, local and regional. He has handled cases in traditional courtroom litigation as well as in arbitration and mediation.


In his construction law practice, he represents owners, contractors, and suppliers in all phases of the construction process: negotiation, contract preparation and dispute resolution. Educated as an engineer, he has the unique ability to understand the complex technical issues in today's construction industry.
