David G. Moore

Raised in West Michigan, David earned his law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where he was on the Dean’s List for multiple semesters. David is a former prosecutor, and he uses that experience to advocate for those who have been accused of a crime.

David prefers a two-prong approach to handling each criminal case. He works tirelessly to mitigate the charges against his clients through everything from motions to dismiss to plea bargain negotiations. At the same time, he prepares every case as if trial was a certainty. This approach gives his clients the most robust defense and often leads to the best possible outcomes.
