Moore is a leader in litigation involving problems with lithium-ion batteries.

He has been included in Rising Stars annually since 2018.
No more than 5 percent of the attorneys in a state are selected each year for Super Lawyers. For Rising Stars, which includes lawyers under 40 or who have practiced for 10 years or less, no more than 2.5 percent make the grade annually.
