Maurice has experience of the criminal justice system not only in England but also in Ontario, Canada and Hong Kong, having worked in both jurisdictions.

His knowledge of computers and associated technologies has proved invaluable in a number of computer related cases, from computer and internet based frauds to general computer misuse offence.
