O'Malley is a 1985 graduate of The Catholic University. He earned his J.D. in 1988 from the University of Maryland School of Law in Baltimore and passed the bar the same year. O'Malley is married to state District Judge Catherine 'Katie' Curran O'Malley, the daughter of J. Joseph Curran Jr., who served as Maryland attorney general from 1987 to 2007. Martin and Katie O'Malley live in the governor's mansion in Annapolis with their children, Grace, Tara, William and Jack.
