Scott Thomas Moorey

About me

I am a local criminal defense attorney.   In 1997, I interned for the local State Attorney's Office and learned the crippling advantages prosecutors have against defendants.  For over 15 years, I have devoted myself to representing the accused.  I truly enjoy people.  Regardless of the charges, simple DUI or the most serious felonies, I will do everything in my power to get the best result for you.

I feel strongly about the attorney/client relationship.  You should feel comfortable the attorney you hire understands your personal situation and listens to your concerns.  The faster you can put these charges behind you, the faster you can get back to a normal life.

I am a local lawyer with local knowledge in our criminal justice system.  Most of my clients are referred to me by word of mouth.  I encourage you to ask around about my reputation and call for a free consultation.
