Attorney Geoff Moore was selected for inclusion on the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars℠list from 2018 through 2020, an honor limited to 2.5% of the lawyers in the state of Florida. Additionally, for the past two years, Geoff Moore was selected to the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 under 40, an invitation only organization extended exclusively to trial lawyers practicing civil plaintiff litigation or criminal defense litigation.
He recently tried two cases to verdict in the state of Florida on behalf of the Maher Law Firm's clients. The most recent trial was in Sarasota County involving an auto injury case where the jury awarded $3,455,363.01, and the trial before that involved a partial fingertip amputation in Orange County where the jury awarded $200,000.00. In 2017 he was a member of a trial team that received a $1,100,000.00 verdict in a nursing home negligence case.
Initially from Chicago, he is a lifelong Bulls fan and enjoys hitting the courts for a pick-up game at the local YMCA in his spare time. Additionally he loves running and will be running in his third marathon in 2020. He and his wife, Ashley, enjoy traveling, and welcomed their first child, Charlie, in February of 2019.
"The personal relationships I develop with clients is the greatest reward," says Geoff. "Cases can take years. After spending an extended period of time working together, there is no better feeling than receiving a phone call from a former client—months after a case resolution—for no other reason than to check-in and say 'hello.'"
If you are in need of skilled legal representation, he can help you better understand your rights and options. Geoff would be happy to review the specific details of your legal matter during an initial free consultation.
