Mauri Baggiano is the founder and owner of lawBookEditors.
Mauri received Honors with Distinction from the Faculty of Arts and Letters of SUNY at Buffalo where he earned his B.A. degree in English in 1975, after only 2 & 1/2 years of study. He went on to earn a J.D. degree from SUNY at Buffalo in 1978.
In the late 1970s/early 1980s, Mauri practiced law in Erie, Pennsylvania. He is currently a member (inactive status) of the Pennsylvania Bar, the Federal Bar, and the Bar of the United States Supreme Court.
While studying for the Bar Exam, and later while practicing law, Mauri began teaching writing classes as an adjunct professor at Jamestown Community College and afterwards, at Gannon University. He continued his career as an adjunct professor at the Rochester Institute of Technology from the early 1980s to the mid-1980s, where he taught all aspects of expository, persuasive, and research writing, as well as interpersonal, business, and public communications.
Throughout most of the 1980s, Mauri served as a distinguished author and content editor of legal publications for the Lawyers Cooperative Publishing Company (now a Thomson/West Publishing company), where he authored and edited multiple chapters/articles for several jurisprudences as well as ALR Federal. Late in the 1980s and throughout the 1990s he served in the LexisNexis organization in Charlottesville, VA, as the lead for indexing development in print publications, acting in two different managerial capacities during his career there.
In the year 2000, Mauri left LexisNexis and started iNTELLiNDEX in Charlottesville, VA, a successful indexing business serving legal publishers in the USA and overseas for over 12 years. In 2004 he formed, along with a Lexis colleague, new bud press, inc., a provider of editorial and indexing services. Mauri continued to act as its President until mid-2013.
Today, Mauri resides in Jamestown, NY, with his wife Karen. He continues to own and operate iNTELLiNDEX, now named indexHAUS. The legal editorial function of new bud press, inc., has successfully transitioned to lawBookEditors. Mauri "handpicks" all of the editors at lawBookEditors, and monitors the quality of their work closely.
