At the Law Office of Gale Moore, we are dedicated to helping clients restructure their families privately and respectfully. We practice both litigation and out-of-court dispute resolution though over the course of time we have expanded our out-of-court practice focusing on collaborative divorce and family law, mediation and direct negotiations. We maintain this out-of-court practice because we strongly believe that family disputes should be resolved in a private conference room, not in a hostile and public courtroom environment. As a result we bring a more peacemaking approach to family law.

Washington University in St. Louis
I have been a trial lawyer for more than twenty years. I pride myself on personal attention to clients, and aggressive representation of their interests. My results speak for themselves. For example, I was recently lead counsel in a product defect and personal injury case against The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. The jury awarded my clients $5.6 million, more than ten times the highest amount offered in settlement before trial, and the third largest verdict ever in that part of Florida. I am comfortable in the courtroom litigating against the world's largest corporations and insurance...

Need a lawyer?

The Justia Lawyer Directory is a listing of lawyers, legal aid organizations, and pro bono legal service organizations. Whether you were injured, are accused of a crime, or are merely engaging in everyday affairs that affect your legal rights or property, an attorney can help you resolve problems or prevent new ones from arising.

Here are just a few situations where you might want to seek the advice of an attorney:

  • You were injured in a car or truck accident
  • You have been arrested and charged with a crime, such as DUI or shoplifting
  • You are considering separating from your spouse
  • You have been subjected to harassment or other discrimination at work

Use Justia to research and compare attorneys so that you can make an informed decision when you hire your counsel.

It is important to research an attorney before hiring him or her. Be sure to evaluate an attorney's experience (types of cases handled, prior results obtained, etc.). Although prior results are not indicative of the likelihood of success in your case, they can help you make an informed decision.

Also worth serious consideration is the attorney's location, particularly if you will be traveling to visit him or her for consultations.

Finally, research an attorney to see whether he or she has ever been subject to discipline. Although disciplinary actions do not necessarily impact the attorney's competence to handle your case, they may affect your decision whether to hire.
