  • Alfred Gordon Schweppe

    Adam Moore is the Dean of the Criminal Defense Bar in Central Washington. He has won many tough cases over the years. I once overheard a corrections officer say that if he got into any trouble Adam Moore would be the first lawyer he would call. When my firm has a conflict I often refer cases to Adam's office.

  • Wayne Allen Fowler

    Adam Moore is the type of lawyer I hope one day to become--incredibly zealous for his clients, highly-skilled in the courtroom, and a true leader who is able to rally the defense team together and laser focus on the client's needs. I am a better attorney from having had the great opportunity to work with him and endorse his without reservation.
