"In the job of attorney general, . . . Ms. O’Malley would pursue an unusually detailed, aggressive and wide-ranging agenda. As supervisor of an office whose staff includes 450 lawyers, . . . Ms. O’Malley, having been in judicial trenches, would bring to the role a broader, fresher, people-oriented view.”

Meet Katie

Former Assistant State’s Attorney and District Court Judge

Katie Curran O’Malley was born and raised in Baltimore, where she still lives. She has 30 years of experience working in Maryland courtrooms as a prosecutor and a judge. Starting in 1991, she worked for 10 years as an Assistant State’s Attorney in Baltimore County, where she tried hundreds of cases ranging from petty theft to complex homicides, helping victims and defendants navigate the legal system. Before leaving that office, she served as Chief of the White Collar Crime Unit, where she prosecuted cases related to financial exploitation of Marylanders, particularly older adults.

In 2001, then-Governor Parris Glendening appointed her to a 10-year term as an Associate Judge for the First District Court of Maryland, encompassing the city of Baltimore. She was re-appointed to an additional 10-year term in 2011 and retired from the bench in November, 2021. As a judge, Katie presided over thousands of cases involving a wide range of criminal and civil laws, as well in problem-solving courts like Drug Treatment Court, Veterans Treatment Court, and others. Every day, Katie worked to resolve issues ranging from domestic violence to drug addiction, to the mental health crisis affecting people in Maryland.

Katie has spent much of her life and her career serving the people in her community and her state.  She was an early and tireless advocate for marriage equality and equal rights for the LGTBQ+ community.  Her nearly 30 years of service and intimate knowledge of our criminal justice system, perspective as a woman and deep roots in Maryland, make Katie the best person to be Maryland’s next Attorney General and the first woman to serve as Maryland’s chief legal officer.

Katie went to college at Towson University and to law school at University of Baltimore. While attending law school, she met fellow law student Martin O’Malley, and they got married in 1990. They have four children, Grace, Tara, William, and Jack.

Why I’m Running

I am running to be Maryland’s next Attorney General because I want to continue to help people here in Maryland, as I have for my entire career. I have the experience and knowledge of our criminal justice system that our Attorney General needs to do the job on day one.  

I started my career as an Assistant State’s Attorney in Baltimore County and for the last twenty years I’ve been a Baltimore City District Court Judge. I know how our justice system works and I know how it doesn’t work. On the bench I was tough, when needed, but I never forgot the values that I grew up with. Everyone needs to be treated equally. Everyone deserves justice. And everyone needs a fair chance. That’s the kind of Attorney General I will be for Maryland. 

I will use the office of Attorney General to protect Maryland families, to fight for a criminal justice system that is equal and fair for everyone, to protect the civil rights of all Marylanders, to protect the environment, and to help ensure that we all have a voice and a vote
