David Moore

David Moore has over 25 years of trial experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in highly complex cases in almost every aspect of the law.  He has handled construction cases as large as $35 million in damages, and participated in the longest jury trial in Williamson County history resulting in a verdict in favor of his client in a highly complex construction case.  He was involved on the cutting edge of the development of bad faith law in Texas, with 2 cases argued in the Texas Supreme Court that are still studied in Texas law schools as landmark decisions in bad faith.  He has been extensively involved in litigating real estate and title disputes on behalf of the insureds of title insurance companies.  He has extensive experience with cases involving products liability; probate; bonding and suretyship; wrongful termination, discrimination and sexual harassment; divorce and family matters; personal injury and wrongful death; business disputes involving partnership and corporate disputes; mold cases; contract disputes; intellectual property; and insurance bad faith.  He has been a full time mediator at Lakeside Mediation Center for over 5 years.
