Marynell Maloney

San Antonio, Texas

(1956 – 2015)

Marynell Maloney had an incredible desire to help others, and she lived her life with an unflagging commitment to her family and her clients. She cared immensely about giving to others and making the world a better place through hard work and advocacy.  This desire manifested itself in her work for the American Civil Liberties Union (of which she was past Vice President of the ACLU of Texas) and on behalf of nursing home residents.  Marynell Maloney was a champion against elder abuse and neglect and spent most of her thirty-six year career in law improving the quality of care rendered to our state's most vulnerable citizens.  Never scared to go up against a big corporation or an abuser of human rights, Marynell Maloney's opponents were often shocked by how sweet and soft-spoken she was outside of law. Yet it was this very dichotomy that typified her, and made her so uniquely special.

As a superbly qualified trial lawyer, Marynell Maloney was Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Personal Injury Trial Law, was repeatedly recognized as a Texas Super Lawyer by Texas Super Lawyers, and carried a 5.0 AV-rating, the highest attainable rating awarded for legal competence and ethical conduct by Martindale-Hubbell. In her journey through the practice of high stakes litigation, she also served in various other capacities including as President of the San Antonio Trial Lawyers Association, Director Emeritus of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and was a member of the Top Trial Lawyers in America's Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. In April of 2015, Marynell Maloney achieved a $7,370,000.00 verdict, after a nine-week trial on behalf of a family who suffered a grievous loss as a result of terrible malpractice. 

After dissolving Maloney & Maloney, P.C. in 2009, Marynell started Marynell Maloney Law Firm, PLLC, a new practice with her daughter, Michelle, and son-in-law, Chris Hernandez, which continues in her name today.
