Ms. Maloney's employment law practice is plaintiff-based, and she accordingly provides advice and counsel to people who have been the victims of job or workplace discrimination.

Ms. Maloney's experience in the latter area has encompassed claims of violations of several federal laws, including the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Ms. Maloney has also represented students who have been bullied or otherwise treated unfairly in some fashion by their public educational schools. Her successful outcomes in all of these matters, as well as her high degree of ethics, have earned her a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo and inclusion in The National Advocates: Top 100.

As an undergraduate, Ms. Maloney attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City, where she majored in sociology and received a Bachelor of Arts with distinction in 1994. She then went on to obtain her legal education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law, and she was the lead literary editor on the UMKC Law Review before obtaining her Juris Doctor with distinction in 1999.
