Shital Maher


Criminal Defence and Advocacy

Shital Maher is an in-house barrister at Cartwright King Solicitors who specialises in criminal defence work. She deals with all aspects of criminal cases and has vast experience in dealing with matters from the Police station through to serious offences in the Crown Court.

More about Shital

I first became interested in criminal defence work after completing work experience at a local law firm during College and decided to pursue a career in law thereafter.

I work conscientiously on behalf of clients and prepare meticulously to ensure a great quality of service and result in the Court room.

I work at Cartwright King as I am enthusiastic about criminal defence work and at Cartwright King I have the opportunity to deal with a wide range of cases. I also like Cartwright King because I feel that it is a progressive and dynamic work place with a friendly culture.  The reputation of Cartwright King is excellent and I feel a sense of pride working for them.

My role excites me because every day is different and I can also see cases progress from the police station stage through to the conclusion of proceedings.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, travelling and yoga.
