Personal Injury Lawyer in San Antonio

As the daughter of renowned trial attorneys Marynell Maloney and Michael Maloney, and granddaughter of celebrated trial attorney, Pat Maloney, Sr., there is a longstanding joke that Erica has been programmed since birth to be a trial lawyer. In college, Erica majored in both philosophy and art history, earning her Bachelor's degree in 2007 from Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine. Upon graduating from college, Erica decided to follow the family tradition and apply to law school. Erica received a full scholarship to the University of California, Irvine Law School – a school which, the year of her application, accepted only 4 percent of its applicants, the lowest acceptance rate of any law school in the country.

In 2012, Erica returned to her hometown of San Antonio to practice law. Erica has passionately advocated for the victims of medical malpractice. As the mother of four children, Erica has focused particular attention on advocating for infants who have suffered catastrophic birth injuries. She has handled multiple cases involving infants who have suffered hypoxia ischemic encephalopathy as a result of negligence during the labor and delivery process. Erica has also pursued cases involving women and infants who have died as a result of childbirth and understands the trauma and emotions involved in these types of cases.

While negligence that occurs in hospital emergency departments in Texas are cases that are notoriously difficult to pursue as emergency department cases require a higher burden of proof than other medical malpractice cases, Erica has successfully resolved several high damage emergency department cases.

Erica believes in taking cases that she feels passionately about and that can invoke systemic change. She enjoys the close bond she develops with clients and using litigation to improve the quality of healthcare. In addition to medical practice cases, Erica handles cases involving victims who have been seriously injured by defective products and in commercial vehicle accidents.

Erica is on the Board of Directors of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and a member of the San Antonio Trial Lawyers Association and the William S. Sessions American Inn of Court. She was selected as a Texas Super Lawyers rising star from 2021-2023 and is consistently named as a top personal injury lawyer by Scene in San Antonio. Erica is also a member of both the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
