      Andrew L. Pierovich, one of the able and successful members of the Amador County bar, is the present city attorney of Jackson, and is honoring his county by his splendid professional service.  He was born in Jackson, June 22, 1895, a son of Andrew and Kate (Glavich) Pierovich.  The father was a seafaring man, who came around the Horn to California and in the early ‘70s came to Jackson, Amador County.  For a number of years he engaged in mining and then turned his attention to the hotel business, which he followed successfully until his death, in 1919.  His widow is still living in Jackson.  They became the parents of two sons and three daughters, but one daughter is now deceased.

      Andrew L. Pierovich attended the public and high schools of his native community and then entered St. Mary’s College, at San Francisco, from which he was graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1917.  During the World War he joined the United States Navy, in which he served for eighteen months.  At the close of the war he was honorably discharged and returned home, and for a while had charge of his father’s business after the latter’s death.  He then entered the law school of the University of California and won the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1922.  Admitted to the bar, he practiced his profession in San Francisco until 1926, when he returned to Jackson and has since been engaged in practice here, though still maintaining his office connections in San Francisco.  He is an able, successful and dependable attorney and is serving as city attorney of Jackson.

      Politically Mr. Pierovich is a Democrat and is interested in everything that concerns the prosperity and advancement of his community.  He belongs to the Fraternal Order of Eagles, the Knights of Columbus (third degree), the American Legion and the Native Sons of the Golden West.  He is very fond of the mountains, and fishing and hunting are his favorite forms of recreation.  He has prospered in his individual affairs and he and a partner own the Jackson Theater, a modern and well equipped motion picture house, in which are presented the latest talking pictures.  He is known as a man of progressive ideas and in civic affairs is a leader, giving freely of his time and efforts for the welfare of the community in which he lives.  He commands a large law practice and is numbered among Amador county’s representative citizens.
