Tom Moore's victories on behalf of clients - and the large awards he has achieved for them - have earned him a reputation as the most successful trial attorney in the U.S. He has won 92 verdicts in excess of $1 million, and has negotiated more than $1 billion in settlements on behalf of clients. He was named the National Law Journal's Lawyer of the Year not just once, but twice.

Moore's success offsets, but does not mitigate, the obvious sadness of the cases he tries. The large awards are personally satisfying for what they bring to plaintiffs: answers to what really happened and the justice they deserve. The fact that he is able to win nine times out of 10 is more than significant. Defendants typically win four out of five cases.

Moore's career encompasses advocacy, research, writing and charitable work. He has funded scholarships at his alma mater, Fordham Law School, and has endowed a chair in Trial Advocacy. In addition he has worked on behalf of breast cancer victims and sustainable healthcare throughout the world.

He lectures frequently for lawyers' groups and professional organizations, and regularly teaches seminars with students. He writes a regular column for the New York Law Journal with his partner Matt Gaier, and they have authored the leading legal textbooks on medical malpractice and trial practice.

Tom is a fellow of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates and a member of the International Society of Barristers. He has been cited by New York magazine and Super Lawyers magazine as one of the best lawyers in New York; repeatedly listed in Law Dragon as one of the top 500 lawyers in the country; and is listed in thehighly respected book The Best Lawyers in America published by Woodward White.

Tom Moore graduated from Catholic University, Washington, D.C., with an S.T.L. degree in 1968 and from Fordham Law School in 1972, with a J.D. degree.
