Atlanta Magazine designated Mr. Maloof as a Georgia "SUPER LAWYER" for 2009. Mr. Maloof has been awarded this honor five of the six years of its existence. Additionally, Georgia Trend Magazine named Mr. Maloof "ONE OF GEORGIA’S LEGAL ELITE" in 2007.

In the 37 years that he has practiced law, he has successfully represented scores of clients who were charged with driving under the influence. Mr. Maloof’s criminal defense practice runs the gamut from federal conspiracy trials to hearings in municipal courts; from murder cases to misdemeanor batteries; from drug cases where the defendant is alleged to have distributed hundreds of kilos of cocaine to misdemeanor marijuana possession cases involving just a few grams; as well as white collar crimes, including income tax evasion. He has professional working relationships with prosecutors throughout metropolitan Atlanta. He is a member of the Georgia Bar Association, the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (GACDL), and the American Bar Association.

From 1972 to 1980, while a partner with the law firm of Moulton, Carriere, Cavan and Maloof, Mr. Maloof worked as a deputy coroner in DeKalb County where he was charged with investigating the manner and causes of death. It was during this time that he acquired a vast knowledge concerning forensic pathology in criminal cases. Under the tutelage of the DeKalb County Medical Examiner, he successfully studied the methods of determining levels of alcohol intoxication and the science that is used to determine the effects of alcohol on the human body.

Also during this time, Mr. Maloof developed an association with Dr. James Woodford, Ph.D., who has a doctorate in chemistry from Emory University. Dr. Woodford has identified many of the sources of error in alcohol testing systems. Dr. Woodford’s expertise has been used by Mr. Maloof in dozens of jury trials to expose fallacies presented by the State in attempting to convict defendants of driving under the influence.

Mr. Maloof was born in St. Helens, England, where his father, Manual Maloof, and his mother, Dorothy Maloof, began their 60-year marriage while his father was stationed at an Army Air Force Base during World War II. The Maloof family has a long history in the metropolitan area of Atlanta, and his father was a fixture in DeKalb County politics for over 40 years, having been elected as head of the county government for 12 of those years, the longest tenure of any DeKalb County CEO.

W. Michael Maloof has lived in the metropolitan area of Atlanta since he was six months old. He has an undergraduate degree from Georgia Tech in Management and Finance and later graduated from Emory University Law School with a doctorate of juris prudence degree. Mr. Maloof is an avid golfer, bridge player and gardener. His wife, Sally Maloof, is a graduate of Emory University. They have been happily married for 35 years. Their son, W. Michael Maloof, Jr., is a licensed attorney in South Carolina and Georgia, and is now a practicing attorney in this firm. Their daughter, Ellen Tatum Maloof, is a paralegal in the area of civil litigation.
