Andrew C. Schiffler is prosecuting attorney of Ohio County, W. Va., elected to that office in November, 1924. His capable, aggressive conduct of the state's interests as prosecutor has gained him the esteem not only of his fellows in the legal profession but that of the general public as well. Added to an admirable grasp of the law, he has demonstrated the sort of energy and sense of responsibility which are the main reasons pointed to by friends who predict for him a notable future in his native state.
Mr. Schiffler was born in Wheeling, August 10, 1890, the oldest of nine children of Andrew J. and Emma (Franz) Schiffler. He attended public school and studied law privately and under the tutelage of Judge Hundt, of Wheeling. In 1911 he was admitted to the bar and began the practice of law in Wheeling. His professional career has been among the most successful of the younger attorneys of the city. From 1918 to 1922 he served as Referee in Bankruptcy, and was elected prosecutor of Ohio County in 1924 on the Republican ticket.
He is a member of the Presbyterian Church, Knights of Pythias, Elks and Odd Fellows. He married, March 30, 1910, Emma P. Muldrew of Marshall County, W. Va. They have one daughter, Virginia, born 1911, and a son, Robert, born 1915. Their residence is on National Road, Leatherwood.
