I have prepared and tried to jury verdict almost 200 criminal defense and plaintiff’s personal injury cases and hundreds more trials and motions have been presented to a judge for decision in the 34 years I have been a lawyer. I have briefed and argued dozens of cases to Iowa and Federal Appellate Courts. These cases have ranged from a landlord tenant small claims case to weeks long products liability and federal conspiracy cases.

  • Jonathan A Millet

    Attorney Moeller's advice is spot on; as shown by the answers he has posted to questions on criminal defense law, he takes the time to answer questions in a common sense manner and plainly addresses legal issues. As a prosecutor, I have seen few criminal defense attorneys that have this ability.
