Top Notch Attorney
I have been a client of Marion Moses on two instances and will not hesitate to hire him in the future. I have never met a more down-to-earth, friendly, helpful lawyer who was able to maintain the extremely high level of professionalism that one will expect when hiring an attorney. To put it bluntly, this man knows his law. Was extremely satisfied with both cases (both of which we won) and will always recommend him to anybody needing help with a criminal or civil case. I have to give his office staff credit as well though as they worked extra hard at keeping me informed of the progress of each case before any steps were made. Bottom line, if you need a case won, this is the man to get. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!

Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney
After my experience with Mr. Moses, I can say he would be my go-to attorney for criminal defense involving DUI/DWI and any other field in the law that he's had experience with. He is an extremely professional and friendly guy that definitely stays on top of each case he has and ensures his clients receive the best representation possible. Do not hesitate to use his services if you feel they fall within his area of expertise, you will not be disappointed!

Marion and his team fought and fought for a complicated case I was in. Until you know what goes on behind the scenes, you may think you aren’t being taking care of, but you are. This man is amazing and I will recommend him to anyone! He never gave up on me no matter what. Thank you Marion!

Very satisfied! Thank you!
Marion and Elizabeth were wonderful to work with. Very knowledgeable, caring, thorough, and great communication. They did a great job resolving a situation involving my son’s traffic ticket. I would definitely recommend them to others, and would hands down hire their firm again if needed in the future.

Prompt, professional and friendly
Mr Moses made a stressful situation feel somewhat under control. He walked me thru each step to ensure he had all the information in order to represent me appropriately. My case was not pursued by the investigator, largely due to how Mr Moses was able to present the other side of the story. I would absolutely reach out to him again should I need legal advice or representation.

Thank you for your service.
After reading the positive reviews, I hired Mr Moses. He was able to get my traffic ticket dismissed. Mrs. Johnson was professional and answered all my questions and kept in contact with me via email. Would hire again, based on this outcome.

Fantastic Experience
Not being from Columbia and not sure who to use for a traffic offense, we did our homework and chose the Law Offices of Marion Moses and we Def made the right choice. We 1st spoke to Elizabeth then Marion. They took our case that day and notified the courts they would be representing us and nothing else to worry about as they would take care of us. Court day came, Elizabeth called us that morning and said they were getting ready to head over and an hour after our appointed time, Marion called us and told us the case dismissed :) If we ever need an Attorney again or know of someone that needs representation I would be recommending the Marion Moses Law Firm for sure. They are Professional, Courteous and Genuinely concerned for the clients. Once again, Thanks Moses Law Form and Highly recommend you guys

PTI program and expungement
We were very pleased with the services we received from the Law Offices of Marion Moses - very professional, helpful and effective. They quoted us a price up front and never asked for more. They guided us through the PTI program and the expungement process. They were available to answer all our questions. We are grateful for their help and highly recommend them.

Excellent!
My son was traveling home to North Carolina from Alabama and got a speeding ticket. An attorney friend in my area highly recommended the Law Office of Marion Moses. My point of contact was Elizabeth. From our first conversation, she was very professional and excellent in her communication with me. The attorney was able to have the ticket completely dismissed. I highly recommend!

Your Best Option
I have never needed an attorney before, and I was worried about finding the right one. However, I asked a trusted person who I should go to, and Marion Moses was at the top of their list. I took their advice and agreed to work with him and his law offices. This was definitely the correct choice because I always felt welcomed. They were always willing to help me and talk to me, no matter how busy their schedules were. Not only are Marion and his associates great at what they do, they are great people nonetheless. When all the important things were taken care of, it was nice to talk to people who cared about my interests in life and found ways to relate to me. If anyone ever asks, The Law Offices of Marion M. Moses will be the first, and only, recommendation.

Case dismissed
Absolutely the best legal attorney in Columbia. Mr. Moses was completely honest with me about my traffic case in our first conversation and never promised me anything except he would contest the case the best he could. Mr. Moses was able to get my case dismissed out right! Mrs. Moses-Johnson was also very professional and courteous throughout my dealings with the law office. A fantastic legal office.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Marion Moses has positioned himself as the "go-to" criminal defense attorney in Columbia and the Midlands of South Carolina. I routinely refer clients who need the best representation in criminal cases to Mr. Moses. He always gets the job done and he fees are very fair. I cannot say enough good things about how great he is, and how he always puts his client first. I strongly endorse Marion Moses"
Criminal defense Attorney | Aug 24

"I have no hesitation in recommending Marion Moses. Marion and I worked together on a criminal defense case, and we currently serve as Officers for the South Carolina Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Based on these experiences, Marion is knowledgeable on the law and is a zealous advocate for his clients."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Marion for over 14 years. He is highly respected among other lawyers. I recommend him for litigation, personal injury, worker's comp and criminal defense. Marion is an intelligent, top notch professional, yet down to earth and has the unique ability to explain things in a way that is easy to understand. I have seen him advocating for his clients in Court. I am confident in Marion's ability to handle cases; that is why I often recommend him to potential clients looking for quality representation in Columbia, SC and surrounding areas."
DUI and DWI Attorney | May 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Marion for many years. He is an excellent attorney and cares about his clients. Although we both practice criminal defense, if someone tells me that they've hired Mr. Moses, I tell them that they are in good hands."
Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Marion is one of the most knowledgeable attorneys in the all encompassing field of criminal law that I know. Marion is also one of the most likable people you can meet. The two combined are what make him one of the best trial lawyers in the state. Don't confuse his likability for lack of fierce advocacy. He won't let you down and it doesn't hurt that the other side likes your attorney!"
