I highly recommend John Vernon Moore and staff.
John Vernon Moore and staff were excellent. He represented me in a very difficult Civil Rights case. He was very focused, thorough and aggressive in his representation. Not only did he provide excellent legal representation, but he took the time to listen, answer all my questions, and truly cared. He was extremely driven and focused, while also being sincere, kind and compassionate during this difficult, emotional time for the family. He is an extraordinary attorney, who I highly recommend.

Very happy with services and case outcome!
Incredibly happy that I used Attorney John Moore - not only did he assist me in getting the very best outcome in my case - but he was professional, extremely quick, and very easy to communicate with. What could of been a much more stressful situation was handled with ease.

Absolutely amazing!
I used John Moore's Office for my uncontested divorce. I told John exactly what we agreed upon, and had the paperwork draft back to me with 24 hours. John was able to quickly and accurately answer all my questions! John was so thorough on the paperwork that after signing and filing the paperwork on Monday, by Thursday the judge had signed my divorce final order that John was amazing enough to file with the divorce papers! I had a less then 72 hours divorce process! I am extremely happy with John Moore office, staff and professional work! Thank you! I will recommend John for anyone in the same situation!

You can't call Saul, you better call John Moore.
I am a 20 year real estate sales associate and have had the pleasure of a challenging career, working with some very fine people with such varied backgrounds. Recently, a much less than satisfactory transaction made me seek out a real estate Attorney for advice, ideas and for action. I wanted action. I met John Moore though mutual friends in Mebourne, it's that type of little town... I always have new "Melbourne Stories" and if you've been here a while you know what I mean. John Moore, my broker and I had a conference call to discuss this transaction that went sour on us.. It was a breach of contract by the sellers and my least successful experience in 20 years. We (John, my Broker and I) walked though four options, taking a gentle approach to urge the defaulting parties back in line. I really did like the gentle approach because it was likely a lose-lose issue for me (broker) There's not really anything an agent can do in a default situation if the buyer doesn't take action too. My buyer didn't care to enforce the contract.. basically "case closed". Honestly, I was disappointed in the ending but very happy to meet and work with a professional in the real estate legal field. John Moore gave me accurate information, No BS, and was very responsive to out requests. I can recommend John Moore.. if you need a real estate attorney you Can't Call Saul, but you better Call John Moore.

BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY
John Vernon Moore came highly recommended to me from another attorney I was looking at some very serious criminal charges. When I met with him, he thoroughly explained all my options and I left so relieved to have found him to represent me. If I ever had any questions he or his paralegal answered them completely. The jury brought a verdict back of NOT GUILTY on all charges. I definitely was not disappointed at all. I would highly recommend him again to anyone facing serious criminal charges.

Satisfied Personal Injury Client
I got into a serious car accident and was out of work for months. I contacted and retained John Vernon Moore and he took care of everything. My medical bills were covered and my time off of work to rehabilitate without being rushed. I was able to not worry about my financial well being while working with John. Thank you so much, you did more for me and my family than you’ll ever know.

Knowledgeable, Empathetic & Strategic
Mr. Moore was recommended to me by a friend and I am so happy. I called. He reached out during his busy day and gave me a free consultation. I wanted to hire him on the spot. We saw eye to eye and he had intelligent, methodical suggestions to help me out over an employment lawsuit that had just been filed. He put my mind at ease and lead me in the right direction.

An Attorney Who Cares
I recently had to attend court for some false accusations made against me. If you have ever experienced a case like this, you know the emotional and mental toll it can take on someone. Mr. Moore made what would otherwise be a heinous process extremely simple, quick, and most importantly- successful! He worked hard on my behalf by explaining the "why" behind his process, and how it would benefit me at trial. Spoiler alert- he was right- we were out of there before lunchtime! An excellent attorney, not just for personal injury, but for any case where you ultimately need to win. I can see why he is rated one of the best in Florida. If you hire Mr. John Vernon Moore you will not be disappointed.

Professional and caring on every level!!
I have nothing but praise for the way John Moore took care of me and handled my case. He was informative, reassuring, and professional every step of the way! He made it clear, right from the beginning that my needs were most important and he worked hard to ensure the best outcome, which we got! The John Moore Law Firm, and especially John Moore himself should be sought out whenever needed to defend anyone when needed! I could NOT be happier with my decision!! Thank you so very much, John Moore.
