Knowledgeable, Compassionate, Gracious
We panicked when our son was involved in an accident and reached out to Mr. Moran, who had come highly recommended by another local attorney. He was extraordinarily helpful, kind, and responsive, answering all our questions thoroughly and timely during consultation. We didn't ultimately need an attorney in this situation, but if we ever do, Mr. Moran will be the first call we make!

Speeding Ticket
As long as I can remembered a few years back. I got a speeding ticket and found Mr. Patrick online. He immediately assured me not to worry and it was all already done! In court he was a felt beautiful to win and the way he displayed his professional and knowledgeable talents in court, was even more amazing! I have been searching for Mr. Patrick but could not find him until now. Years and years after this incident I just got a speeding ticket. I wasn’t speeding. I wasn’t in a rush or nothing. The officer was unbelievable evil, intimidating and scary! He threatened to put handcuffs on and take me to jail when I was just driving and telling my kids a story. I wasn’t speeding. I am now waiting for Mr. Patrick to represent me. I have a CDL and drives for a living.

Creative !
Patrick engineered a creative solution to assist in reducing a Speeding ticket to a no point violation. The savings we will realize from our Insurance premium not increasing will more than offset his nominal fee ! Thanks for your quality work Patrick !

I was referred to Patrick Moran for an aggressive driving charge. I was clueless as to the process and was also very anxious and scared about what would happen. I had read horror stories online prior to contacting an attorney. After speaking with Patrick about my driving record he helped me calm down and assured me that he would work diligently to get the charge reduced. He was able to successfully plea my case down to a lesser offense and I am able to breath a lot easier! Highly recommend Mr. Moran.

5 Stars!
Mr. Moran listened, took notes, and was fully prepared to defend a traffic ticket that I thought I did not deserve. The process was seamless and professional. He made it fun to win in court! There was never a doubt in his mind that we would win, and we did. Patrick Moran is a winner!

Keeping my CDL
I was in danger of loosing my Commercial Driver's License and possibly my job over a minor moving violation(too many in one year). Patrick Moran helped get this citation completely dismissed and at reasonably rate that I was glad to pay.

Commercial license protection
I received a citation for using a hand held device ( cell phn ) which is a automatic termination with most freight companies not to mention the damage to my personal and employers csa score. Patrick was able to have it dismissed without missing one minute of work. As incentive to get this done quickly Patrick was offered a extra fee as a bonus which he decline. Honesty is a rare commodity and hard to find at times of need. It was refreshing to find someone who cared more about my case than lining his pockets. I was so impressed as was my company with Patrick's professionalism and dedication to the client he is now being recommend as a optional legal source to all of our drivers from Phoenix to Nogales and all points between the two. I can't thank you enough Patrick for your help.

Very happy
Patrick did an amazing job with my case. I came in with a complicated task for him to help with. He was able to get everything dismissed for me and I paid no legal fines. I'm hoping I never have to go through this again, but if I should, I'd definitely go back to Patrick for it.

Excellent and Fast
Mr. Moran did a great job. We had a situation where a mistake by the MVD led to my license and vehicle registration being suspended and a $1000 fine. He got everything dismissed in a day and kept us informed the entire time. He will help you and I can't recommend him enough.

A Great Attorney!
Patrick was able to convince the detective that his story would not hold water with the judge and to drop the traffic violations he had cited me for. He had the detective changing his story several times by careful and exact questioning. While I did accept a deal to get the charges dropped for a much lower generic fine and no points on my license, he was prepared to go all the way to get everything dropped if I was willing to risk it.

Competence and thoughtfulness
Mr. Moran is really competent and knowledgeable. I never found myself worrying for something unclear during the whole process. You receive a lot for very reasonable fees. I highly recommend him because of his kindness, his competence and his involvement.
