Elect Andrew Liu
Superior Court Judge - Seat 3

Andrew Liu

ANDREW LIU

My decision to seek a position on the Monterey County Superior Court bench came after considerable thought, and encouragement from several judges and other members of the legal community, longtime friends and relatives. Endorsements from 22 current and former judges and justices of our local bench, prosecutors and defense attorneys, civic leaders, police officers, probation officers, civil law attorneys, and the business community give me faith my decision to run is the correct one, for me and the people of Monterey County.

I have worked as a criminal defense attorney in Monterey County for more than six years.  Prior to that I was a prosecutor locally and in the Bronx, N.Y., for a total of 13 years.  I have a diverse background and a firm commitment to seeing that the law is fairly administered and justice is served to all.

As a prosecutor I helped place behind bars people whose crimes merited their forced separation from society.  As a criminal defense attorney I have represented a wide variety of clients from all walks of life.  My goal in both positions has been to see that justice was ensured.  In both roles I never shied away from the tough cases.

If the people of Monterey County honor me by electing me judge, I will be prepared to make the difficult decisions that a judge must make, and I will treat people fairly, with courtesy and respect, and with grace.

Biography

ANDREW LIU

Fullfilling his
duty to the
justice system
and community.

As an attorney focusing on criminal law for nearly 20 years, Andrew Liu knows first hand how vital it is that the scales of Justice be balanced. Andrew has gained experience on both sides of the courtroom, having served as a prosecutor in the Bronx, N.Y. and as a prosecutor and a defense attorney in Monterey County.

Locally, Andrew first served as a Deputy District Attorney in the Major Felony unit for the Monterey County District Attorney’s Office from January 2005 to December 2007. He handled all aspects of major felony prosecutions including homicide and attempted homicide, governmental corruption, gang crime, narcotics, major assault, illegal firearms possession and embezzlement.

Andrew has been a criminal defense attorney in Monterey County for the past six years, handling a wide range of cases. Although he primarily works on major felony matters, his cases represent all degrees of seriousness and complexity. He has handled some of the most challenging criminal matters in Monterey County, and has earned the respect of the local legal community. As an approved attorney for the Fraternal Order of the Police, Andrew also has the respect of law enforcement officers and has represented officers on administrative and criminal matters.

Andrew was hired fresh out of law school in 1994 as an Assistant District Attorney in the Bronx District Attorney’s Office. His assignments covered the full depth and breadth of prosecutorial work. Andrew served as an Assistant District Attorney until 2004, and over the course of a decade, he was given increasingly greater responsibilities and supervisory duties.

  • Early on, Andrew sought to protect the most vulnerable crime victims and requested assignment to the Domestic Violence/Sex Crimes Bureau. In this capacity, he was responsible for all aspects of felony prosecutions with a focus on homicide, domestic violence, sex crimes and child abuse.
  • Later promoted to Supervisor, Domestic Violence/Sex Crimes Bureau, Andrew had more than 40 Assistant District Attorneys under his direction and he became a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children task force responsible for the investigation and prosecution of crimes committed over the Internet against children.
  • He earned the position of Deputy Bureau Chief, Domestic Violence Bureau. Andrew oversaw the prosecution of all criminal domestic violence matters in the Bronx. He directed other supervisors as well as more than 20 Assistant District Attorneys in the Bureau. He was also a member of the New York City Criminal Court Committee on Domestic Violence and the Inter-Agency Task Force on Domestic Violence.

As a prosecutor, Andrew was recognized for his ability and repeatedly called on to teach various aspects of criminal law. These have included programs for the National District Attorneys Association, the District Attorneys Association for the State of New York, the Bronx District Attorney’s Office, and the Joint NYPD/Bronx DA training program.

At Monterey Peninsula College, he has been a faculty member for the Probation Officer CORE Course on Contraband, Evidence & Search and Seizure.

The high regard in which Andrew is held was also demonstrated in 2007, when he received the Award of Excellence from the Monterey County Peace Officers Association.

Andrew’s keen interest in criminal law developed while attending Boston University School of Law, where he earned his law degree in 1994 and received the American Jurisprudence Award for Trial Advocacy. During the summers of 1992 and 1993, in between terms in law school, he was an intern in the District Attorney’s Office of Santa Barbara County. He grew up in the Santa Barbara area.

Andrew earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree from UCLA in 1991, majoring in philosophy, and he graduated with departmental honors.

Outside of the courtroom, Andrew is a member of the Board of Directors of the Door to Hope, and is currently on its Executive Committee. Door to Hope operates nine behavioral health programs in Monterey County that serve infants and young children, teenagers, men, women and families.

Andrew and his wife, Teresa, who works locally as a senior finance manager for Dole Fresh Vegetables, make their home in Salinas. They are the parents of a 10-year-old daughter who attends public school.

Endorsements

  • “I strongly recommend the election of Andrew Liu to the Monterey Superior Court because I believe he is well qualified by virtue of his experience on both sides of the courtroom, and his skill, learning and temperament. He will adhere to the fundamental duty of a judge to be faithful to the law regardless of partisan interests, public opinion, the need to be popular or the desire to curry favor with anyone. Andrew Liu, as a judge, will have the courage to do what is right regardless of these pressures.”
    - Hon. Nat A. Agliano, Presiding Justice, California Court of Appeal, 6th District (Ret.)

  • “For several years I have thought that Andy Liu would be an exceptional judge, and now voters will have the opportunity to make that happen. He is easily one of the best trial lawyers in Monterey County with excellent courtroom skills and experience. But what sets Andy apart is the professionalism, intelligence, compassion and integrity he brings every day to every case. He is truly an ideal person to serve on the superior court, and his candidacy has my full support.”
    -Hon. Adrienne Grover, Justice, California Court of Appeal, 6th District

  • “As a lifelong resident of Monterey County and former Monterey mayor for 20 years, I have observed those qualities that make a good judge: integrity, dedication, balance, fairness, compassion and a deep knowledge of the law. All of these describe Andrew Liu. He is the clear-cut choice for election for Seat 3 on the Monterey County Superior Court bench. Andrew Liu will be an excellent judge.”
    - Dan Albert, former mayor, City of Monterey

  • “Not only does Andrew Liu have the intellect and broad, balanced experience necessary to be an excellent judge, he also cares deeply about our entire community and its people. And, as the son of immigrant parents, Andrew understands the value of hard work and determination. I fully support Andrew Liu for Judge of the Monterey County Superior Court, Seat 3.”
    - Luis A. Alejo, California Assemblymember, District 30

  • “Given his tremendous background and his deep breadth of experience, Andrew Liu profoundly understands that the scales of justice must be balanced. He will be even-handed and fair to all who come before him, and his temperament will help make him an excellent judge. Andrew’s familiarity with and appreciation of all of Monterey County will serve the people well. He will be a truly fine judge. I am proud to support his candidacy for Monterey County Superior Court, Seat 3.”
    - Dennis Donohue, former mayor, City of Salinas

  • “As a law enforcement officer, I know that Andrew Liu’s experience on both sides of the courtroom gives him the perspective we desire in our judges. I am familiar with his work as a prosecutor and as defense counsel, and know him to be hard working, diligent, and above all fair. I have no doubt that he will enforce our laws and hold offenders accountable, and will do so in a manner that is fair, impartial, and respects the rights of all. Andrew Liu deserves your vote for Judge of the Monterey County Superior Court, Seat 3.”
    - Louis Lumpkin, Deputy Chief, President of the Seaside Public Safety Management Association (SPSMA)

  • “Andrew Liu is the superior choice in the election for Judge, Seat 3. As judge, Andrew will bring with him an understanding of the law, a tireless work ethic, dignity and a sense of fairness for everyone. I believe that his diverse background in law and in life will make him a strong addition to the Monterey County Superior Court bench. I urge the voters to join me in support of Andrew Liu for Judge.”
    - Helen Rucker, former member, Seaside City Council; former member, Monterey Peninsula Unified School District Board of Trustees

Español

Llegué a mi decisión de buscar una posición en el banquillo de la Corte Superior del Condado de Monterey después de pensarlo bien, y después de largas conversaciones con miembros de la comunidad judicial, viejos amigos, y familia. El apoyo de 17 jueces corrientes y pasados de nuestro banquillo, fiscales, abogados defensores, lideres civiles, oficiales de policía, agentes de libertad vigilada, abogados de ley civil, y la comunidad empresarial confirmó que la decisión de correr es lo mejor para mí y para el publico del Condado de Monterey.

He trabajado como un abogado de defensa criminal en el condado de Monterey durante más de seis años. Anteriormente, yo fui fiscal localmente y en el Bronx, Nueva York , por un total de 13 años. Tengo una formación diversa y un firme compromiso de ver que la ley sea bien administrada y que se haga justicia para todos.

Como fiscal ayudé poner detrás de barras personas cuyos crímenes merecieron su separación forzada de la sociedad. Como un abogado de defensa criminal he representado a una amplia variedad de clientes de todos los ámbitos de la vida. Mi meta en ambas posiciones ha sido ver que la justicia sea asegurada. En ambos papeles nunca rehuí los casos difíciles.

Si la gente del Condado de Monterey me da el honor de eligirme, yo estaré preparado para tomar las decisiones difíciles que un juez debe hacer, y voy a tratar a las personas de manera justa, con cortesía, respeto, y compasión.
