  • James Kehrli Moore

    Doug has a reputation as one of the best trial lawyers in southern California. He is ethical, smart, hard working, and provides his clients incredible value. It's no wonder he was recently the OC-ABOTA trial lawyer of the year and has the honor of serving as the Cal-ABOTA president. Doug gets excellent results in cases ranging from car accidents to insurance bad faith to business litigation. I highly recommend him.
