Tribute to Past President Frank Maloney

Frank Maloney was our organization. He was the consummate lawyer, an indefatigable student of the law, and a righteous and enlightened judge of our State’s highest criminal court. More importantly he was a mentor to many of us for over half a century. As a young lawyer in the early 1970s he introduced me to TCDLA and NACDL. He was instrumental in my service on the faculty at UT Law.

I had the great privilege of sharing courtrooms and the pleasure of more than a few bar rooms with Frank. Ever the elder statesman of our profession, Frank attracted eager young advocates to classrooms and courtrooms, sharing his unique blend of vigorous, forceful advocacy, always delivered with collegiality and respect. With his gentlemanly “old school” manner, coupled with an unequaled and encyclopedic knowledge and command of the courtroom, he shaped the law and our profession for us to follow ever after. RIP Frank Maloney.
