Maura is a well-known and influential eDiscovery lawyer.  She is described in Who’s Who Litigation 2015 E-Discovery Analysis as “‘sensational’ according to her peers and . . . a ‘go-to’ in the area.”  Chambers & Partners USA 2015 Litigation:  E-Discovery described her as “the best-known person in the area of technology-assisted review; a superstar among superstars.”  Maura’s scholarly work on TAR, most notably, Technology-Assisted Review in E-Discovery Can Be More Effective and More Efficient Than Exhaustive Manual Review, published in the Richmond Journal of Law and Technology in 2011, has been widely cited in case law, both in the U.S. and elsewhere.  Her longstanding contributions to eDiscovery technology and process, including her multiple patents relating to TAR, were featured in the February 2016 issue of The American Lawyer.

She is an adjunct professor at Columbia Law School and the Georgetown University Law Center, where she teaches courses on eDiscovery. Previously, Maura taught at Rutgers Law School–Newark and Pace Law School.
