About me

Jeff Moore received a Bachelor of Science in Physiological Sciences from UCLA before obtaining his law degree from the University of California, Hastings School of Law in San Francisco in 1998. After passing the California State Bar, he spent eight years as a Deputy District Attorney for Riverside County.


During his tenure at the District Attorney’s Office, Mr. Moore was assigned to various specialized vertical prosecution units, including Grand Theft Auto, Welfare Fraud, Arson, Special Prosecutions (including Insurance Fraud), and Narcotics Prosecution. Designated as the Major Narcotics Vertical Prosecutor for the Southwest Division for several years, Mr. Moore has received certification in Clandestine Laboratory Investigation from the California Department of Justice, which is the same training required for all law enforcement clan lab investigators. He has attended additional law enforcement trainings in the fields of homicide, auto theft, and high technology crime, as well as the CNOA (California Narcotics Officers Association) conference. Mr. Moore’s assigned cases have encompassed virtually every major area of criminal law, from misdemeanor battery to first degree murder. Additionally, Mr. Moore participated as an attorney-coach in the Riverside County Mock Trial Competition for six years, before entering semi-retirement as a perennial scoring attorney for the competition.


As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Moore worked as an associate in the Blumenthal Law Offices for six years before accepting a position as Senior Trial Attorney with the Law Offices of Michael A. Scafiddi.  He has attended defense-oriented trainings related to Sex Crimes, Gang Crimes, Homicide, Trial Practice, and has participated in the California Death Penalty Seminar semi-annually.


Mr. Moore has successfully defended criminal cases ranging from Death Penalty/Homicide to Child Molestation to misdemeanor Domestic Violence.  His trial experience now spans over fifteen years, exclusively devoted to California criminal justice.  He has a track record of success on both sides of counsel's table, with nearly 100 jury trials completed in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.

    I endorse Jeffrey Moore. His experience as a former prosecutor is a huge advantage. "They know that he knows what they know". Experience counts! Read his reviews. If you are in or near Riverside call him first for a consultation.
