Shylah Maloney

Attorney, Barton Gilman


In her career so far, Maloney has achieved success through various facets of her litigation work including an appeal, motions to dismiss, a small claims trial, in alternative dispute resolutions, and before medical malpractice tribunals. At the CLM, she has been a leader within the Massachusetts chapter where she serves as vice president, has helped organize events, and has presented at conferences.

She is most proud, however, of her pro bono work. Since 2017, Maloney has volunteered with a non-profit that provides housing eviction protection for local tenants, as she enjoys giving back to the community and helping people, especially during their most vulnerable moments. She is an annual recipient of the Massachusetts Attorney Pro Bono Honor Roll.

This passion for helping others comes through in all of Maloney’s accomplishments. One case outcome she finds most significant was her work on an appeal of a medical malpractice case because she was able to zealously assist her physician/hospital clients against allegations that had been looming over them for years. Litigation went on for five years; after winning, the issue came back on appeal which took another two years. That Maloney was able to co-draft, research, and prepare the appellate brief and argument that led to a successful verdict for her clients—allowing them to finally put the matter behind them—is what stands out to her.

Maloney also takes great pride in helping other young attorneys succeed, evidenced by her work with CLM’s Young Professionals Community. It is this drive to help others that has put Maloney’s career on a phenomenal trajectory.
