Tiffine Malamphy Attorney Spotlight


Why did you become a lawyer?

I sort of fell into it. When I was getting ready to graduate college, I knew I wanted to continue my education and do something that would help people. My degree is in psychology but after some thought, I decided that being a therapist was not for me. After ruling out grad school, being a lawyer seemed like an active way I could help fix people’s problems. Practicing law has been a great experience; it’s an area of constant development.

Most memorable court room experience?

Before civil litigation, I was a criminal defense attorney. Once, the prosecution withdrew a plea deal and forced my client to go to trial so that a new prosecutor could get trial experience. It was unfair but, unfortunately, completely within the prosecution’s prerogative to do so. Thankfully, after arguing all the facts in my client’s favor, the jury acquitted my client of certain allegations that lead to a lighter sentence than the prosecution was seeking. I won’t forget the look on the prosecutor’s face after delivering my opening when he realized my client and I were not going down without a fight.

What are 3 things you couldn’t survive without?

Iced lattes, my record collection, and cheesesteaks.

Favorite Musician or Band?

I listen to music a lot and love discovering new artists, so I have too many to pick just one.

Favorite thing to do on the weekend?

If I’m not obsessing over some video game, I like exploring the streets of LA. The city is full of hidden gems you won’t find driving around.
