Eileen O’Malley is an Orlando, Florida, business litigation, trust litigation, probate litigation, and employment law paralegal for Bloodworth Law, PLLC.
Eileen works directly under the supervision and direction of managing partner L. Reed Bloodworth, and partner and attorney J. Kemp Brinson.
Eileen is a licensed Florida attorney. Her previous experience includes criminal defense and family law.
Eileen has worked in fields that revolve around knowledge and justice. She was a journalist for The Ocala Star-Banner, and was working for Florida Today when she did an interview that changed her life direction.
“An 18-year-old was being held at a police station,” Eileen said. “He was a senior in high school and had killed his stepfather. Years and years of abuse against his mother made him decide to kill the stepfather.
“But the first person he saw wasn’t an attorney, he saw me, and started talking. He told me what he did, why he did it and wanted to tell me more. I knew this wasn’t right, and that’s when I decided to go to law school.”
Eileen graduated from Florida A&M University Law School and interned in the Orange County Public Defender’s Office and GrayRobinson. She then worked for Hutchison, Mamele & Coover.
Eileen has also taught at Valencia College, Full Sail University, and Keiser University.
On weekends, Eileen pursues fun with her family, frequently visiting Florida amusement parks and attractions. They enjoy posting reviews and videos about their experiences at the parks on a family blog.

“I like to listen to what clients tell us. I want to ask them the right questions to help them get to the heart of their legal disputes,” Eileen said. “We can focus on the legal problems that they’re facing after they tell us what has happened to them, their families, or to their business.
“When they get support from us, they’ll know that we understand the law and can walk them through some of the very first steps. It definitely lets them know we’re here to get all the issues sorted, together.
“I think that’s the most important step, to be that voice on the other end of the phone who can answer the concerns they have. It can calm them down and we can start working on what to do to help them.”
