We Are A Full-Service Firm

Attorney Philip W. Moore, Jr., is well-known for his skills as a litigator and for his work in a wide range of legal matters, so clients will often call upon us because they know our thorough preparation and courtroom skills are useful for other legal services. When we are not providing useful and effective family law guidance, we generally are helping clients in one of the following areas.

Business startups: A new or growing business faces a variety of challenges. Using a lawyer experienced with legal, tax and business formation issues can help ensure that those first steps are a strong foundation for your long-term business plans. Success often involves picking the right business entity, but also includes drafting smart transaction agreements, employment agreements, real estate or lease agreements for workspace and other necessary arrangements.

Business litigation: Attorney Moore's strong professional reputation is based on his success in the courtroom. It is common for a litigator to be aggressive, but Mr. Moore prefers to think of himself as assertive — this means that the interests of the client are protected, but we try to avoid further damaging what may be a necessary working partnership.

Contract disputes: Legally binding agreements are a part of doing business. Unfortunately, a contractual mistake or breach of contract can cause a serious problem that threatens the viability of a business. Resolving matters can involve litigation in court, but clients also have options for collaborative alternatives like mediation, which is less expensive and is less likely to damage a working relationship with a business partner.

Construction litigation: Disputes will often arise during the construction process. This can involve any part of the construction, from a commitment to a starting date to finishing at an agreed upon time. It can involve how the work is done and dispute if the project did not meet expectations. We represent contractors, developers, engineers, architects and others to resolve these matters in a fair and equitable manner.

Mechanic's lien: Sometimes a property owner does not pay a contractor the agreed upon contract price. We help our clients put a legal claim against the property to recover legal moneys owed.

Estate planning: Estate planning tools like wills and trusts are designed to pass assets and possessions to beneficiaries. We create arrangements that efficiently transfer those assets to the right person with the minimal amount of expense. We can also fill many roles in the administration of the estate — this relieves grieving family members of the burden of handling the necessary details for managing the probate process in the courts, manage a dispute over the will and other complex yet important matters.
