Practice areas

Zach holds a B.A. from Texas A&M University and received his J.D. from Thurgood Marshall School of law. Zach was also a police of officer for the city of Bryan, Texas. As a law enforcement officer he performed numerous arrests, and filed investigations from narcotics, assaults, and other crimes. His experience in the field as a patrol officer has been invaluable in helping clients wrongly accused. His unique perspective offers a real look at what an offense report means as opposed to what it states. After law school Zach became an Assistant District Attorney for the 81st District Court. This district covered five Texas counties. In this rural setting Zach’s duties covered every aspect of a felony case from intake, to grand jury, indictment, pretrial, trial and appeal. With only 5 attorneys to represent such a large area the caseload covered everything a felony prosecutor would ever face.

 

A short stint with a civil firm in Alvin, Texas gave Zach the tools and knowledge to have a successful civil practice. Eventually, he decided that his main interest, knowledge and experience was in criminal defense. After a couple of years of a successful general practice, Zach was retained on a case and invited the expertise of his colleague Calvin Parks. Preparing and trying that case together lead to the formal creation of Maloney and Parks, L.L.P. in January 2007. With the creation of the partnership, Maloney and Parks, LLP is able to expand their criminal and civil practice beyond Galveston and is better able to serve their clients.

Assault with a deadly weapon.
He got it dismissed. A court appointed attorney that cared more then what I've heard about other lawyers. Straight forward and won't BS you. Thank You for Everything.

Yes and yes
He was court appointed and worked harder than lawyers I paid. He was real and told me what would happen.

Street racing case
I was caught making the foolish choice to do an illegal street race. Contacted Zach and worked out the details. On his end he negotiated and persistently found loop holes and options for me to take, then put the ball in my court. Went from a year of probation, or suspension of license, to a pre-trial mitigation packet, to a court dismissal with community service and a decision making course. Excellent communication. Just casual enough to make you feel at ease and truthful but professional enough to understand what needs to be done on your part and when. I'm very glad I was able to find Zach to represent me. I feel I got the absolute best outcome from my case.

Mr. Maloney was an amazing lawyer for my cases. I was fighting 2 major cases and the only offer on the table for me was 10 years TDCJ even as a first time offender. Mr Maloney made it possible for me to get probation. He was court appointed, but I can honestly say he cares about his clients and will do whatever it takes to get the best deal possible. He’s honest, straight to the point, and won’t leave you in the dark. I would recommend him to anyone!

A Team
Maloney helped me out tremendously! I was looking at serving time in jail, a felony for evading arrest, and a revocation to my probation. He communicated extremely well throughout the process, directed me on how to handle having the revocation warrant, he got me out immediately, and bartered with the DA several times. The result was I got deferred for the felony and probation. I am extremely pleased with his professionalism and service. Thank you!

Trustworthy, Knowledgeable and dependable
You can count on Zach Maloney to help you see things through. He is respectable and wastes no time breaking down terms of the courtroom. He'd be the first I'd turn to for help let alone legal council. "True Man of Justice" "a great person" i say.

No nonsense
I was recently involved in a ridiculous case that would have had life altering consequences. After doing some research and crossing my fingers I gave him a call. He was very attentive and did give me some direction before he was even retained for my case. Once he was hired he gave actual guidance, was focus and professional and really preferred his straight forward nature. He never left me hanging for a court date and forthcoming with pertinent information, heaven forbid if I ever need services such as his in the future I would definitely rehire Mr. Maloney

Great lawyer!
My husband was fighting a DUI and we were worried about him going to jail for a long time..Maloney assured us he would do his best, and he did with the least time amount of time possible. Also flexible payment plan and not to pricy.

Hard Worker
In my daughter's case, I felt the DA was being too harsh for a first time offense. Mr. Maloney listened to us, but still told us the facts of the laws and was straight forward as to how he would handle our case. Everything worked out for my daughter. Have patience and know he is working his hardest for the best interest of his clients.

excellent
I just spoke with zach today for a friend of mine and he was really knowledgeable about everything and he hasn't even started the case but just from experience with other court app. lawyers and what I went through. He was very professional and understanding and actually took the time out to speak with me. Which I greatly appreciate since most court app lawyers wont even take the time out to do that or there job. I definitely have faith in this now and would definetly recommend him to any one else

Unknown Attorney | Jan 28
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Zach Maloney is among the best lawyers you could hire in Galveston County. Has has run for the 405th Distict Court and had the support of many Attorneys. I consult with Zach on cases frequently when I hit a roadblock. His best talent is knowing what the practical effect of the law is. While most lawyers would stop at "What is the legal answer here?," Zach would ask "How would Judge XXX view this? How would a Jury view this? What legal fight is really worth fighting and what legal fight is not worth fighting?" That is where the rubber meets the road folks, and Zach has a knack for it."
