Conti Moore

Conti Moore

Managing Partner

Attorney Conti Moore has quickly earned a reputation in the Central Florida legal community as being a fierce advocate for her clients. Her fighting spirit in championing the rights of her clients makes her a formidable opponent for any opposing counsel- no matter their resources nor their professional pedigree. “Stress less. Choose Moore.” is not merely a slogan, it is the credo by which Conti Moore Law, PLLC operates; it is the guiding principle by which all matters are handled from inception to favorable final judgment.

When Conti Moore takes on a case, she brings with her a wealth of knowledge obtained from the best schools in this state. Litigation- both criminal and civil- is nothing less than a war made up of many small battles which are won or lost long before a case is brought to trial. Conti’s determined approach to winning every one of those small battles was crafted when she attended Florida A&M University whose call to action is to “Strike, Strike, and Strike Again”. It was at Florida A&M University where Conti earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems with a minor in Business, gaining the business acumen that she utilizes in operating her own successful business but also in representing her clients in business law matters.

The unyielding, battle-ready disposition that Conti brings to every case was fortified when she attended and earned her Doctor of Jurisprudence at the College of Law at Florida State University whose alumni proudly boast the “unconquered” spirit of the Seminole Tribes of Florida. It was here that Conti’s aptitude for law and litigation shone through as she was honored to have become a member of the FSU Journal of Transnational Law and Policy and was also a member of the FSU Mock Trial Team- placing first at the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyer’s Mock Trial Competition and second at the Association of Trial Lawyers of America’s Mock Trial Competition.

Conti’s professional accomplishments mirror the laurels she achieved as an outstanding student leader at the Florida State University College of Law. Upon graduation, Mrs. Moore became licensed to practice in the States of Nevada and Florida and became an associate attorney at one of Las Vegas’ most prestigious law firms. Conti quickly built a reputation early in her career for aggressively representing her clients from inception through trial and appeal, litigating matters such as business disputes, personal injury, family law issues, landlord/tenant disputes, and employment discrimination.

While she holds in the highest regard her clients’ expressed satisfaction of her handling of their legal matters, it is always wonderful to be recognized by one’s colleagues. In 2010, Attorney Moore received such acknowledgement when she was recognized by the National Bar Association and Impact as one of the Nation’s Best Advocates: 40 Lawyers Under 40. The accolades, however, did not end there as she was also presented with the coveted Excellence in Service Award in recognition of her unyielding commitment to community service.

Attorney Conti Moore strives daily to provide excellent, cost-effective representation to her clients. But her dedication to fighting for the rights of those needing legal assistance does not end there. Conti has contributed several hundred hours of pro bono service to her community. In fact, in 2008, her extensive pro bono work was recognized by the Clark County Bar Association and the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada when they bestowed upon her the prestigious Lied Award for Most Pro Bono Hours in the county.

Attorney Conti Moore’s commitment to alleviating the stress of her clients by providing exceptional, aggressive, and strategic legal representation is unquestionable and thoroughly evidenced by her record. When she isn’t going above and beyond the call of duty to produce favorable results for her beloved clients, Conti is enjoying time traveling with her husband Nick and stepson Jameer.

Stress Less. Choose Moore.
