Michael S. Malloy, Esq.

Michael is a business lawyer devoted to serving the individuals and organizations working to build a better Maine. After eight years practicing at medium–sized firms, where he represented some of Maine’s largest private employers and municipalities, Michael recently embarked on a longtime dream and launched The Malloy Firm as an independent practice based in Lewiston-Auburn, with a statewide reach. Involved in his community and within the bar, Michael is a member of the American Bar Association, the American Immigration Lawyers Association, and the Androscoggin County Bar Association, for which he serves as Vice President. Michael is Co-Chair of the Red Mass Committee for the Catholic Diocese of Maine, and volunteers his time and expertise on behalf of a number of community nonprofit organizations, including Tree Street Youth, the Emerge Film Festival, and the Auburn Nordic Ski Association. Michael has been recognized by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star  in the area of Business Law (2015, 2016), and has been recognized by the Maine Supreme Judicial Court as a Katahdin Counsel  for providing more than 50 hours of pro bono  legal services. When he’s not practicing law or digging into some new community issue, Michael enjoys cycling, bourbon, books on tape (though not simultaneously), and unwinding at the family camp in Bucksport. He lives in Auburn with his wife (also an entrepreneur) and two young children.
