“My success as an attorney is the direct result of hard work. When a client hires me, he trusts me, and I will fight relentlessly to ensure he will get the best defense. Many defense attorneys believe they can just negotiate in court and hope to get a ‘good’ deal, I do not agree. I believe there are two arenas to defending a criminal case, one is the courtroom and the other is filing motions. Writing and arguing motions takes time, research and dedication which is why most attorneys never file motions, but I love to bombard and bury prosecutors with motions forcing them to response and forcing the Judge to make tough decisions. The best defense is a prepared defense and we are always prepared to defend our clients.” – Daniel Moaddel, Esq.
