Murder and attempted murder
Sex related offenses
“Three Strikes” cases
The Law Office of Michael K. Moore has represented hundreds of clients over the years, each with great care. We understand each client is different and we pride ourselves on listening to what our clients want and need.
We always hold the District Attorney to their burden of proof and always ensure that the arresting police officers did not violate your rights. We are experienced trial lawyers who have tried and won numerous cases throughout the San Joaquin Valley.
We are skilled negotiators who can work out deals that are favorable to you, often better than what you might receive from the public defender or other local attorneys.
Our reputation speaks for itself. When you or someone close to you has been accused of a crime, do not cut corners and try to get by with an attorney you are not 100% comfortable with. The consequences of a criminal conviction can be everlasting, so make sure you have someone who will fight for you.
Our rates are reasonable and payment plans are almost always accepted.
Experienced Trial Lawyer – Handling any criminal charges, from felonies to misdemeanors.
Reasonable fees. We are here to help.
Payment plans available.
The Law Office of Michael K. Moore can help you clean up your criminal record by taking advantage of California laws that allow you to withdraw your guilty plea/guilty verdict, plead not guilty, reduce felonies to misdemeanors, and have the case dismissed. The benefits of expunging your conviction and/or reducing your felony to a misdemeanor can be powerful:
Legally be able to answer “NO” on job applications that ask if you have ever been convicted of a crime
Restore your rights to own a firearm in California by reducing felony convictions to misdemeanors
Remove convictions from your background check so employers can’t see them when they make hiring decisions
Commonly called an “expungement,” these laws will allow you to legally say “No” if you are ever asked on a job application (or any other situation that requires a background check) if you have been convicted of a crime.
This applies to almost all criminal convictions — whether they are felonies or misdemeanors, you can have a clean record again. We know how to achieve this and charge reasonable fees to accomplish that for you — do not overpay!
Helping you and your family out of tough financial situations and making a plan for a better tomorrow.
Reasonable fees. We are here to help.
We have filed hundreds of bankruptcy cases over the years and have had the pleasure to witness many clients experience the joy of getting a true fresh start financially. There is no shame in considering and filing bankruptcy. Many intelligent, successful people have used the law to gain a fresh start — from US presidents like Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln, to expert businessmen like Henry Ford and Walt Disney, to celebrities like Larry King.
One thing all of these people had in common — they used the law that was written to help people in tough financial situations and they got themselves fresh starts and never looked back. Bankruptcy can provide powerful relief and help you accomplish many things:
Stop foreclosure and save your home
Stop wage garnishments/bank levies immediately
Stop lawsuits filed by creditors seeking to seize your assets
Stop harassing phone calls from aggressive collection agencies
Keep your important property/assets and protect them from creditors
Here at the Law Office of Michael K. Moore, we specialize in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies for regular, hardworking folks who need help. We can stop foreclosures, wage garnishments, strip liens, and get lawsuits dismissed. Bankruptcy is a powerful tool to help you get yourself into a positive financial situation with a chance to rebuild. We are experts in this area and are here to help.
We have very reasonable standard fees for people filing bankruptcy. Please compare our rates to other attorneys – you will be pleasantly surprised. We do not believe in overcharging folks and only ask for additional fees in unusual cases.
Clean up your record. Have previous felony convictions reduced to misdemeanors.
Allow yourself the power to be able to say “NO” when you are asked if you have ever been convicted of a crime.
Don’t overpay for this service! We have some of the most reasonable rates in the area.
Accidents can happen to anyone. We are here to help you assert and protect your legal rights.
Many cases can be handled on a contingency basis, which means unless we win, you don’t pay attorney fees.
We are experienced in handling personal injury claims of all types, making sure our clients effectively assert their legal rights and are given a chance for restitution for damage done. Personal injury can include things like:
Slip & Fall
Assault and Battery
When you are a victim who has suffered an injury, the most important thing to do is seek medical treatment right away. This could help save your life and save you from life-altering complications down the road. Do not simply try to “tough it out” or ignore the pain. Listen to your body and protect your health.
If you feel you were injured and another party is at fault, it is also important to talk with an experienced attorney right away. There are important steps that must be taken to protect your rights, and often those steps must be done within a certain time period (e.g., statute of limitations).
Also, it is very important to remember NOT to speak to attorneys or anyone representing other parties involved, including insurance companies, unless and until you consult with an attorney. Just as it is true in criminal defense that you should always exercise your right to remain silent when being questioned by the police, if you have been injured, talk to your lawyer before talking to anyone else.
Overall, when you are a victim of personal injury and you are seeking to enforce and protect your legal rights, you should work with a lawyer you are comfortable with — one that will advocate for you and help you feel whole again. At the Law Office of Michael K. Moore, we have the experience it takes to achieve those goals. Ultimately, we want to help our clients by establishing good communication, showing compassion, and zealously representing their interests. With no up-front fees, there is no reason you shouldn’t contact us today to discuss your claim.
Be prepared. Plan for the future. Protect and provide for your loved ones.
Many people put off creating a will or planning for the future because they don’t like to think about the “worst case scenario” — something happening to themselves or their loved ones. In truth, however, a worst case scenario is not having a plan for the future, regardless of what it may hold. We all work hard to provide for our families and the ones we love. Having a plan makes sure that your hard work pays off by providing for your family no matter what.
We are experienced in creating custom tailored estate plans for all types of people – it does not matter how large or how small your fortunes may be; we can help you create the plan that works for you.
We specialize in creating trusts, wills, and durable powers of attorney that can help accomplish several important things:
Avoid probate and litigation when it is time to distribute the assets of your estate
Save your family members the emotional toll of having to make big decisions by spelling out your wishes with crystal clarity before life intervenes
Realize significant tax advantages that estate planning can provide
We hope you will trust us to help you make the right plan that leaves you with your mind at ease, knowing things will be taken care of and your family members will be secure. Don’t put off planning for the future.
