I pride myself on my ability to be an effective advocate for my clients, both at the negotiation table and in the courtroom.  Clients like me because I am straight-forward, personable and have the savvy and experience necessary to achieve results.  I strive to keep my clients well-informed and provide the information they need to make smart decisions about their children, their money and their future.  

At your initial consultation, I will educate you about your rights, responsibilities and options for proceeding.  Every person's situtation is different, and no two divorces are the same.  I want to know about you, your family and your particular legal objectives. You will be provided with comprehensive legal advice and counsel so you will understand what to expect and how to prepare.

Excellent and compassionate negotiator
I knew Moura was the right attorney for me when we first met. She is smart, sympathetic, pragmatic-a talented advocate and problem-solver. It was important to me to avoid litigation, reduce conflict and reach a private, out-of-court settlement. Moura told me about the Collaborative Divorce Process, and it was the best choice for both of us, for our children and our business interests. My wife and I were able to get through our break-up efficiently and cost-effectively without hating each other in the end and causing our kids to need lifelong therapy because of our divorce. Highly recommend this skilled professional.

Custudy battle
During this custody battle Moura, and her dedicated team have done and gone beyond our expectations for my son, and my self. Her professionalism, promptness, kindness, completely straight forward, and her first class moral standards are what makes a good attorney GOOD. I thank you Moura, and to each one of you're team members for making my long journey so much easier and for taken the time to hear me out, and lifting me up with so much hope. Thank you, Coty P.

Excellent Attorney
Moura is EXCELLENT to work with. She is knowledgeable, personable, kind, and compassionate. She really takes the time to get to know you and invest herself in your case. She is incredibly professional, experienced, and does not back down when it comes to representing you and making sure that everything is handled fairly and just. Divorce is one of the hardest things to ever have to walk through but Moura's grace and kindness made all of the difference in the world - she genuinely cared about my well being during the entire process and it showed. I would recommend Moura to any and everyone that needed a family law attorney.

Moura was outstanding in my child custody case.
When I came to Moura, I was a frustrated father with a teenage daughter who was in a very contentious relationship, and difficult living situation, with her mother. We also had a parenting coordinator who was more interested in creating issues between the parents and generating fees than being an advocate for what was best for my daughter. After meeting with Moura, we discussed the options available and a course of action was taken. After a few months of the legal process, we finally came to a amicable ending. The Parenting Coordinator was removed by the Court, a Court-Appointed Guardian At Litem (GAL) was appointed to represent my daughter, a new child custody agreement was established, and, most importantly, mandatory reconciliation counseling between my daughter and her mother was implemented, which resulted in them having a much better mother-daughter relationship. When patents get a divorce, it is terrible on children. Sometimes an Attorney specializing in Family Law has to get involved to defend the child’s right to choose and give them a voice in the decision-making process. 7 years ago, Moura gave my daughter that voice and she is better off for it. I am so glad I hired Moura to help negotiate this difficult situation. My daughter is better off and so are both parents.

She's the best. Im so glad that I hired her for my custody dispute. Her paralegal, Toni, is also wonderful. I highly recommend them.

Considerate, Knowledgeable, and Professional
I couldn't have hired a better lawyer than Moura Robertson to finalize my divorce. Her kindness, patience, and knowledge of the law pertaining to my case assured me that I had the right advocate on my side. I highly recommend Moura for her spirit of excellence.

Great Attorney
Great attorney and staff which I highly recommend. Moura is an absolute professional, with high ethical standards. My divorce was not easy. She asked detailed questions to understand my situation and expectations. Timely and thorough communications kept me updated with case progress. Her hard work and experience aggressively mitigated issues which arose and provided an outcome I was quite satisfied with.

Client
She and Toni, not only looked out for me. They take into consideration your time and money. If you follow her advice, she will be able to give you the best results possible. After having both Toni, and Moura as my council, it is clear they care about people. I know I made the right choice. There is always a cheaper option, or a snake you can hire. But with Moura and Toni, you truly get professional and expert advice.

Skillful negotiator and advocate
I have hired Moura on multiple occasions. She is very skilled at complex financial negotiation, keeping my personal business out of the courtroom. Moura also worked wonders in my complex child custody case. My previous attorney did very little and told me because of my busy schedule I would never get my children. Moura Robertson prevailed and got results far more than I ever hoped for. She is a super lawyer.

Moura Robertson: The Perfect Mix of Power and Prowess
I've hired Moura on two separate occasions, and without exception, she has come through in every circumstance by bringing about the desired outcome when it mattered the most. She ensured that my rights as a father were protected, along with my children's well being, so that I ended up with the time I wanted, without it costing me my ability to thrive because the terms of the settlement were reasonable. Sometimes achieving a reasonable settlement during a divorce can be a seemingly insurmountable challenge, but this is precisely the type of situation Moura will outperform her competitors in. She will fight for you, whether it's for your children or to make sure you don't suffer irreparable damage as a result of divorce, Moura will get results.

Divorce
Moura has done a wonderful job on my case. She has worked very hard for me, and addressed every concern I have. She has given me great advice, explaining things in detail, as to what I need to look at down the road. She is very professional, and I have sent one friend to her, and would highly recommend her to anyone in my situation.

Help when I needed it most
Moura helped me get through a tough divorce. My previous attorney dropped the ball and Moura picked it up and ran. She has a fantastic assistant, Toni, whom is very helpful too. Moura guided me every step of the way during my divorce process. I felt like I was well represented in court and at mediation.

World class lawyer
Moura is an amazing lawyer! I hired Moura as a lawyer for a divorce with minor children. This is a situation that is very hard for all parties involved. I felt like many people going through this, my world was falling apart. Moura brought confidence! No matter how unsure I was, after talking to her it felt like everything would get resolved in a fair, agreeable manner. She is very professional when dealing with legal manners but also likable and easy to build rapport with. It's obvious after talking to her that she has a mountain of experience and knowledge. In the court room she commands respect from her peers. To top it off her office has superb staff. I really enjoyed talking with her paralegal Toni. She is a warm down to earth person who helped keep my sanity throughout the entire process. Divorce is tough and comes with many hard decisions to make. I highly recommend Moura. She is the real deal. Hiring her was the best decision I made.

Excellent Attorney
She got me very favorable results when other more expensive lawyers just said," settle the matter". which would have cost me thousands of dollars. She is very kind and caring. She fought for me when all others wouldn't. That makes her an Excellent Attorney.

Excellent representation
I had a very difficult divorce. Ms Robertson was professional in dealing with my case she researched and was always prepared. I knew when we were dealing with judges or other attorneys Ms Robertson was up to date on everything that was going on with our particular caseas well as all the legal research that applied to any decisions that may have been made. I was very satisfied with the outcomes and completely confident in Ms Robertson's ability to represent me and my best interest. I would ask her to do it all again or seek her counsel for any other issue in a heartbeat.

Excellent Negotiator
Moura has represented me in several matters. She successfuly negotiated settlements with very favorable outcomes saving me expensive trial fees.
Posted by anonymous | July 9, 2015
Effective, but expensive.
Moura represented me very effectively in my divorce. She successfully fended off an alimony suit. She is expensive and recommended expensive forensic accountants, but we did win. I can definitely recommend her if your budget allows.

You might as well set your money on fire and kick yourself in the nuts.
Moura avoided doing much on my case at all until she had about $15k of my money in her pocket. Then she did the bare minimum, as slowly as possible. It took her six months to run up a tab that was equal to my annual salary and then in the 11th hour she withdrew from my case, apparently entitled to all of the money and none of the work. Hire this $400/hr self-proclaimed Dragonslayer at your own risk.
