An attorney with over 20 years of handling the most serious felonies
Tony Moss has over 20 years of experience in death penalty litigation, the most intellectually and emotionally challenging area of criminal law. He has trained hundreds of other Miami criminal defense attorneys in how to handle capital cases, and he has been retained by other lawyers as a consultant in murder trials regarding exoneration of the defendant or to develop a strong case for mitigation. With an extensive network of investigative and other resources to assist him both inside and outside the courthouse, Mr. Moss has earned a nationwide reputation among his peers for excellence in trial-level litigation in state federal courts.
The mission of The Tony Moss Firm is to provide effective, ethical counsel and assertive representation to the criminally accused in both state and Federal courts, in South Florida, statewide, and nationwide.
What Sets Us Apart From Other Miami Criminal Defense Attorneys?
It is impossible to understate the impact that a criminal charge may have upon the lives of the accused, and of all those around them. The potential damage to the defendant’s career, lifestyle, and personal reputation may be immense, and is often irreversible. If the accusation is serious enough, the possibility of losing one’s liberty, especially for a crime one did not commit, is simply too horrible to consider. If this kind of misfortune strikes, the wisdom of seeking legal counsel is beyond dispute.
Why should you seek Tony Moss first? For over 20 years, he has belonged to one of the bar’s most exclusive and respected societies—those dedicated advocates who represent clients in death penalty cases (the most complex and challenging of them all), and who also teach other attorneys how to do so effectively. Belonging to this society requires such special dedication, experience, and peer review that only a fraction of Florida’s 90,000-plus lawyers ever qualify for membership. Just as Tony has consistently brought that dedication and experience to the defense of his capital clients since 1991, he brings it to the table for each and every client, regardless of the nature or severity of the allegation.
It’s this unique experience that may make the critical difference in your case. How is this so?
Because no type of criminal case cultivates and sharpens a lawyer’s most valuable legal and human skills more than one in which human life has been lost, and the government in turn is seeking our permission to end the life of the accused. Thus, only attorneys who meet the most rigorous standards for experience and professionalism are asked to represent indigent clients in death penalty cases, in both state and Federal courts.
In a death penalty prosecution, the client’s life is literally in the hands of his lawyer. His case will be investigated by the most experienced detectives and crime lab personnel. It will be prepared for trial by the most skilled prosecutors, who often handle murder cases and nothing else. Judges must go through specialized training before presiding over such cases. Of course, in many cases, the influence of the news media will be pervasive.
The capital defense attorney has to prepare for two trials: one to decide whether the State has proven the client’s guilt, and (if so) a second one to decide punishment, either life imprisonment without parole, or death by lethal injection. For a sentencing trial, the attorney must be familiar with a variety of social trends and issues outside the law (e.g., poverty, educational failure, race, mental illness, exposure to domestic violence, cultural issues, etc.), and must thoroughly investigate those which may have directly affected the client’s upbringing and development, using experts in the needed disciplines to build the case for life. Our Miami criminal defense attorneys can provide more information.
Most of all, the attorney must possess the empathy to appreciate his client’s life story, the communications skills to make that story come alive to the jury, and the courage to face the same twelve angry jurors who have already found the client guilty, and say to them that, despite the horror of his actions, the client is a human being, with a life worth saving. This is the most profound task a defense attorney can ever undertake on behalf of a client. Fewer than a fraction of 1% of Florida’s approximately 90,000 lawyers are qualified to take on this kind of representation.
Even those who are not facing the death penalty deserve this kind of effective, client-centered assistance of counsel—the inherent virtue of liberty demands no less. Tony Moss stands ready to put those skills to work for you—no matter the charges or the possible consequences.
