ForensIQ is Thomas P. Mauriello, M.F.S.  Tom Mauriello is ForensIQ’s, President and CEO and has been in two distinct careers for the past 43 years.  He is an educator who teaches criminal justice and forensic sciences at the University of Maryland; and is retired from a long career as a law enforcement, security and counterintelligence practitioner for the State of Maryland and the federal government. He is considered a forensics and education and training expert – with a particular niche as a generalist, strategist, and public speaker.
Tom is a forensics generalist, which he views as a competitive advantage. Most other industry forensic consultants focus in one particular area of expertise (i.e. computer forensics, ballistics, fingerprints etc.), whereas Tom has strong knowledge in many of these areas and can help legal teams determine which tests or investigative measures will help build a strong legal case for the defendant.

Tom has mastered the art of public speaking while developing his professional expertise.  His experience provides ForensIQ with the expertise to provide motivational speakers; forensic and investigation training; on-camera media interviews; security and counterintelligence awareness presentations; and a sought after “how-to” public speaking training workshop.
