Mauro is a partner at Ahmuty Demers & McManus where she is one of the firm’s senior litigators who works in the trial court and appellate levels.

There she assisted in prosecuting major drug cartel cases in the criminal division’s narcotic’s unit. She also has experience working as in-house and outside counsel for various insurance companies.

Mauro was installed alongside the new and reappointed officers, including Victoria Serigano, Raquel Miranda, Danielle Ciraola, Jovia Radix, and Angelicque Moreno. The directors, and the delegates for the Women’s Bar Association for the State of New Yorki, were also installed during the ceremony.
