Before joining the firm, Maggie had a long and esteemed career in public service. In 2016, the New York Law Journal honored Maggie for its “Lawyers Who Lead by Example” awards. Maggie was selected for demonstrating leadership in public service and devoting herself to improving the legal system and profession in New York. 

Maggie began her career clerking for the Honorable Denise Cote in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. She then worked at the law firm Gladstein, Reif, & Meginniss as an associate, where she practiced labor and employment law for over six years. She represented workers and unions in federal and state courts, including the New York State Court of Appeals and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and in arbitration and administrative forums. Maggie successfully litigated cases establishing a worker’s right to interest on a backpay award when the worker suffers retaliation for filing a worker’s compensation claim, clarifying the test for joint employment under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and representing class action clients who were victims of age discrimination. After she obtained a substantial judgment for a client who was the victim of disability discrimination, the judge in the case noted that "Ms. Malloy produced work of a caliber that far surpassed her years of experience."

Maggie then worked at the EEOC as a trial attorney for over five years. There, she was the lead attorney on a number of complex cases, including a case against the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island, alleging that a clergy member sexually harassed female employees, and a nationwide case alleging sex discrimination, harassment, and a hostile work environment, and seeking relief on behalf of over 25,000 women. At the EEOC, Maggie was a speaker and trainer on issues relating to systemic litigation and e-discovery. In 2011, Maggie received a Sustained Performance Award. 

Maggie then served as Chief Counsel for Pro Se Litigation in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, where she managed the office responsible for assisting all judges with pro se cases (cases brought by people without lawyers), which make up approximately 20% of the court’s civil docket. Maggie supervised the court’s pro bono program and provided advice to the court regarding the management of pro se litigation, helping to ensure that litigants without lawyers had equal access to justice. Maggie was a frequent speaker on topics relating to pro se litigation and access to justice.

Maggie joined the Law Office of Christopher Q. Davis as a partner in 2021.

Maggie graduated from Columbia Law School, where she was a senior editor of the Columbia Law Review, a James Kent Scholar, a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar, a Harlan Fiske Stone Moot Court Competition finalist, and a recipient of the Jane Marks Murphy Prize. She holds a B.A. from Cornell University and an M.A. (in German) from the University of Minnesota. 

Maggie is admitted to the New York State Bar, the U.S. Supreme Court, and the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. She is a member of the Joint Local Rules Committee for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the New York City Bar Association, the New York Employment Lawyers Association, and the Federal Bar Council. 

Maggie is proficient in German.
