Maurice has represented various public entities throughout Southern California, defending cases through trial iu both state and federal courts for the State of California, municipalities, school districts, and community colleges. He has represented clients before the State Personnel Board, the State Labor Commissioner, and other administrative agencies and civil litigation.

He is acquainted with the appellate process relating to dangerous condition of public property, design immunity, Americans with Disabilities Act, non-renewal of teacher contracts, and other substantive legal areas.
