Bruce Maloy
Maloy Jenkins Parker partner, Bruce Maloy, has over 40 years of experience trying criminal cases. He has tried over 100 state and federal criminal jury trials. Bruce has defended individuals accused of fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, SEC violations, healthcare fraud, and other complex crimes. He has also represented individuals charged or investigated in transnational crimes.

Since 1995, Bruce has been Adjunct Professor of Law at Emory University School of Law, teaching Transnational Criminal Litigation and Advanced Issues in White Collar Crime. In addition, he is a frequent lecturer on trial techniques and International Criminal Law at conferences around the world. Bruce is a recognized expert on International Criminal Law. Bruce has given expert testimony in extradition proceedings in the United Kingdom, the Bahamas, and other jurisdictions. He has frequently advised lawyers in other jurisdictions on criminal law in the U.S. He also counsels foreign investigations or prosecutions. In the recent opinion in Ahmad, the European Court of Human Rights noted Bruce Maloy's testimony in the defendant's extradition hearing. Bruce was qualified and testified as an expert on American criminal law and procedure in that case.

In 2006, Bruce traveled to the Middle East as part of a U.N. program to teach human rights law to Iraqi judges and prosecutors. In 2017 he was part of a group of American College of Trial Lawyers that traveled to Iraq to assess the legal system's ability to assist NGO's and protect refugees.

As part of his commitment to equal access to justice, Bruce, along with the Southern Center for Human Rights, sued the County Commissioners of Fulton County, Georgia. They forced the county to agree to better fund the county’s Public Defender Office so that prisoners would have a lawyer within days of their arrest instead of languishing in jail for months without representation. He also successfully sued the State of Georgia under the Americans with Disabilities Act on behalf of a blind state prisoner. His client had, among other indignities, been written up for refusing to sign a statement saying he had read and understood the inmate rule book.

Bruce was inducted into the American Board of Criminal Lawyers in 1998 and the American College of Trial Lawyers in 2001. In 2013 he was President of the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, the most prestigious organization of criminal defense lawyers in the United States. He is also a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the International Bar Association, and the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, serving as President in 1990. Bruce served on the Board of Directors (1989-1994) and as President (1994) of the Federal Defenders Office in Atlanta. He has been rated in the highest category for White Collar Litigation by Chambers. According to Chambers, "Bruce Maloy deals with white-collar investigations and is renowned for a 'gentle persuasive style that is very effective with jurors and judges.' A 'consummate lawyer for representing senior officers,' Maloy is said to have a 'terrific ability to figure out the best strategic move in a case.'" Bruce is also a Georgia SuperLawyer in the White Collar Crime rankings. He is also recognized in Best Lawyers for his criminal defense expertise.
