| Hired Attorney
Mr. Moore represented my son first as a court appointed public defender for a minor offense. I was astonished when I received a call from him--imagine a public defender actually initiating communications and diligently working for a client. We were so impressed by his candor, character, work ethic, and communications that we retained him again on another matter. There are good lawyers and bad ones; Jacob Moore is a one of the good ones.

Great Job
Jacob was appointed as my public defender. I was luckly. He explained what would take place and what the chooses I could make. I heard other inmates talk about how they never heard from there public defender. I had charges in two different counties. I hired Jacob to represent me in another county because he had done a very good job in the first county.

Great and Honest Lawyer
I hired Mr. Moore earlier in 2015 with a suspension of license infraction and was looking at HTV status, something I could not afford due to my job. His rates were very fair and his professionalism was top notch. He ended up getting it dropped altogether for me and even refunded me some of the my payment since he did not have to use it all! Usually lawyers take your check and never look back, but he was very honest with me and said that it had not taken my entire payment to finish the job. I was and still am beyond pleased. I would recommend him to anyone.

Professional & exceptional attorney
I retained Jacob in 2014 after a traffic violation in the state of Indiana. I am an Illinois resident and wanted local representation. I contacted a few attorneys and not only did Jacob come off as the most professional of the group, each of the attorneys I spoke with had great things to say about Jacob. He was able to reach an agreement that I found satisfactory. I was very happy with what he was able to accomplish and I found him to be exceptional in his ability to easily communicate with me and respond quickly to any questions of mine. I hope that I never need to hire Jacob in the future, but he will be the first person I call if circumstances require it.
