Martin K. Maley, Sr. Professional Bio
Marty’s Experience, Integrity, and Commitment make him uniquely qualified to represent Louisiana.
Martin K. Maley, Sr. has been prosecuting criminals and practicing law in Louisiana for over twenty-four years. He earned his Juris Doctorate in Law from Southern University Law Center in 1991, and began working as a Staff Attorney at the Louisiana District Attorneys Association. For seventeen years, his duties as a Staff Attorney took on various roles: Drug Prosecution, Civil Drug Asset Forfeiture, White Collar Crime, DWI Prosecution, Training Law Enforcement at all levels, Legislative Support Services, and General Counsel and Research Services to the many DA’s and ADA’s across our state. Currently, he is a Felony Trial Prosecutor in the 18th JDC, handling all types of serious felony matters. Marty has been a Civil Trial Attorney since 1991 and owns and operates a successful civil law firm with offices in Baton Rouge, Port Allen, and Napoleonville.
In addition to his felony duties, Marty is the Coordinator for the District Attorney’s Early Intervention Program in the Parishes of Pointe Coupee, West Baton Rouge, and Iberville. This program focuses on truancy and at-risk children who are enrolled in public elementary schools in those parishes. This is a very effective and efficient program, which increases attendance and performance of each child, keeping these families out of the juvenile court system.
Marty has been a member of The Chapel on the Campus Church in Baton Rouge since 1988. He is most proud of his multiple terms of service on the Board of Deacons. Marty has also been a long-term board member of the South Louisiana Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association, a member of Ducks Unlimited, Delta Waterfowl, CCA, and various other environmental, conservation, and sportsman groups.
During his career as an ADA, Marty had the distinction of serving two consecutive terms as President of the ADA Board of Directors for the Louisiana District Attorney Association. This position is a statewide position and he was chosen to serve from a list of approximately twelve-hundred prosecutors throughout our state. He continues to serve on the ADA Board of Directors today.
While serving as ADA Board President, Marty assisted in the creation and promotion of the LDAA Training Foundation and served as Director of the program for short period of time. He now fully supports this worthwhile foundation, designed to further the education and training of Louisiana prosecutors. Marty has routinely been called on to train State, Parish, and Local Law Enforcement Officers in a variety of legal, prosecutorial, and law enforcement principles.
