Litigation is not ‘one size fits all.’  Common approaches yield common results.  Each client has a unique business ethos and ambition that will govern the best approach to any conflict.  You cannot provide meaningful advice if you do not truly understand your client’s perspective.  Similarly, it is not the will to win that determines the outcome of a case.  Everybody has the will to win.  It is the will to prepare to win that distinguishes the successful litigator.

With these beliefs, Neal has spent his career defending and trying cases involving personal injury and death.  He specializes in complex product liability matters, working closely with professionals in industrial and commercial enterprises to defend claims of allegedly defective devices and equipment.  As a member of FFMY’s Rapid Response Team, Neal has investigated and defended long distance and local transport companies when accidents cause injuries or fatalities on Alabama’s highways.  Through the years, he has developed a sub-specialty of defending cases involving burn injuries.

In additional to his personal injury work, Neal is an expert in the financial regulations governing lenders and debt collectors, serving as  the originating partner in the firm’s Financial Services Litigation Group.  Neal’s work for his clients earned him the distinction of becoming the first equity owner outside the  founding partners.

Practicing throughout all of Alabama, he is also admitted in the Southern, Middle and Northern United States District Courts, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle and Northern Districts, the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.  He is a graduate of Cumberland School of Law at Samford University where he was a member of The Cumberland Law Review.  His undergraduate degree is from The University of Georgia.  Neal completed the four-year curriculum in only three, graduating cum laude with honors.

A popular speaker, Neal has written and lectured on a variety of topics, including legal ethics and training for young lawyers.  He was honored to serve on the Board of Directors for the Alabama Defense Lawyers Association, and was a repeat instructor at the Young Lawyers Deposition Boot Camp.  Neal has been a featured speaker at educational seminars hosted by The Birmingham Bar Association, The Shelby County Bar Association, ACA International, Lorman Education Services, and NBI,  among other sponsors.  Neal has been published in Defense Research Institute’s For The Defense and The Alabama Defense Lawyers Association Journal.  He works one on one with businesses and insurance companies providing enterprise-targeted instruction with the twin goals of reducing the cost  of litigation, and of avoiding litigation altogether.

He is fortunate to be married to the former Ms. Kelley Anne Torrey.  Together they have two children who are a constant source of pride and worry.  The Moore Family worships at Prince of Peace Catholic Church.  In addition to his professional affiliations, Neal is  one of the few Georgia Bulldog Club members brave enough to live in Alabama, and is a three-decade-long member of the KISS Army.
