Practice areas

As an Associate Attorney with the Marynell Maloney Law Firm, I am the first member of the next generation of Maloney attorneys in San Antonio, Texas. I was born in San Antonio, Texas, grew up abroad, and attended college in New York City, before graduating cum laude from the University of San Francisco School of Law and moving back to San Antonio to practice. 


I am licensed in Texas, New York and California and handle medical malpractice and wrongful death cases. In my second year of practice alone, I singlehandedly settled over a million dollars’ worth of cases. I have successfully represented clients in high stakes settlement negotiations and mediations and am honored that my clients have put their trust in me. As I work primarily with families who have been devastated by horrific injuries or the deaths of loved ones, I understand how difficult the litigation process can be and I strongly believe that a lawyer's duty to her client is to listen first, advise second, and advocate always.

Outstanding Malpractice Attorney
I called The Law Offices of Marynell Maloney about a medical malpractice case on behalf of my husband. After the initial consultation, we were told Attorney Michelle Maloney would like to meet with us. When my husband and I met with her she was very straight forward and honest as to what we should expect if she agreed to represent my husband. Once she reviewed the evidence she agreed to take the case. There are several things that I admire about Michelle. One being she is a very compassionate and humble person, and very easy to talk to. She is also a very good listener which is a very important asset to look for in a great attorney. Due to Tort Reform I would assume most attorneys would not want to deal with these types of cases, but that does not stop Michelle from fighting for her clients' rights. Once Michelle started working on our case, it took her less than a year to win our case. When I tell you that she is the best attorney in San Antonio Texas to handle medical malpractice, I mean just that. No other attorney could have won this case except Michelle Maloney. I urge anyone, if you are looking for a medical malpractice attorney to represent you, please do not waste your time with any other attorney. Talk to Michelle Maloney first. If she can not help with your case, chances are you do not have a case. Thank you again Michelle. May God continue to bless you and keep you safe always. Submitted by Sharon P.

Diligent and though, while still compassionate
When first we were looking for help with our problem most lawyers we spoke to were unhelpful given the nature of the case Michelle however dug deep and came up with a possible solution and called us back to setup a face to face meeting. As the process continued she not only took diligent notes but she also provided great emotional support. She is professional while at the same time was empathetic to us. Without her on our legal team I am quite sure that not only the process would have been much more unbearable but the outcome would have been different. My family and I are grateful to have had her on our side for she truly is a gem.

An Outstanding Honorable Attorney who can be Trusted to Work Hard and Fight for her Cllent
Michelle Maloney's law firm has a well deserved longstanding reputation for being strong in evidence and procedure and for its formidable presense in the courtroom. In Michelle, I experienced the essential qualities I hope to find in an attorney . Michelle is professional, articulate, smart, well organized, and understands that the lawyer is there to serve the client. Michelle is dedicated and worked hard to help me get a good result in a high stakes matter involving medical malpractice and improperly prescribed drugs. Her thoroughness impressed me. The infrastructure of her law firm appears very strong and this support enables Michelle to fight effectively against the biggest and most well funded opposition. What I best remember is the warmth and compassion in Michelle's office. In time of stress, knowing you can trust and rely on your attorney can help give peace of mind. I sensed that Michelle left no stone unturned and took no shortcuts in her quest to help me.

Malpractice Case
Michelle was a fabulous Lawyer. She was EXTREMELY helpful and informative. She took our case even though it was an animal case and she doesn't primarily do that type of work. She was VERY prompt and won our case in a very effective manner. I have worked with one or two lawyers in the past, but I was extremely impressed with her performance and attitude. She went above and beyond to help us in our time of need and we are very grateful. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Michelle is such an outstanding lawyer in her own right that had I not spawned her and participated in some of her training, I would wish I could claim I had! Michelle combines the unique qualities of a fierce intelligence, an over-sized heart, and a strong work ethic - all which together make her a formidable and indefatigable adversary to her opponents, and a compassionate and zealous advocate on behalf of her clients.
