In trouble in the Dupage County region? Contact Attorney Moore for thoughtful and aggressive help.
As an Assistant State's Attorney, I handled thousands of cases, from petty traffic offenses to the most serious felony cases. Having had that invaluable experience as a prosecutor, I am uniquely able to assess a client's chances of success in the local criminal courts.
Additionally, I've had the opportunity to befriend many of my courtroom adversaries as well as courtroom staff. As a result, I am often able to negotiate from a familiar standpoint that typically benefits my clients.
During the course of my 6 years at the State's Attorneys office, I spent approximately ten months working on domestic violence cases, one year exclusively on DUI cases, and the last 14 months handling high-volume drug delivery/trafficking cases. Through these assignments, I became intimately familiar with constitutional issues of search and seizure, and the many bases for the suppression of evidence.
As a trial attorney, I had the benefit of trying hundreds of cases as a prosecutor, and have utilized those skills in hearings and trials for my clients. In addition to having an active trial practice, I train and coach a high school trial team which has been in the Illinois State competition finals for the past three years, and have advised the Loyola law school trial team (1994 - 1998). In this sense, I am an example of a person who not only can successfully try a case, but can teach others with less experience and training how to be effective advocates in a courtroom.
