Congratulations to the 2023 Super Lawyers

Jan 10, 2023



We are pleased to congratulate Patrick Maloney on his selection to the 2023 Southern California Super Lawyers list. Each year, no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by the research team at Thomson Reuters to receive this honor.


A business litigator and the founder of the Maloney Firm, Patrick has been recognized as a Super Lawyer each year from 2015 to 2023, and had been a Rising Star – an award given to just 2.5% of attorneys who have been in practice for ten years or less – from 2005 to 2008.


Firm attorneys Gregory Smith, Carl Mueller, and Elizabeth Schaus have also been consistently recognized by Southern California Super Lawyers. In 2022, Greg was selected to the Super Lawyers Rising Stars List for the seventh consecutive year, and earned the further distinction of being named to the Up-and-Coming 100 list. Carl was recognized on the Rising Stars list for the third time last year, and Elizabeth has been selected to the Rising Stars list every year since 2019.


Super Lawyers, part of Thomson Reuters, is a research-driven, peer influenced rating service of outstanding lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The annual selections are made using a patented multiphase process that includes a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates and peer reviews by practice area. The result is a credible, comprehensive and diverse listing of exceptional attorneys.
