Benjamin D. Moore Esq.
Ben Moore has devoted his legal career to protecting the physical safety and financial security of his clients and their families. A skilled and aggressive advocate, Ben began his career as a domestic violence prosecutor in the Bronx County District Attorney’s Office, where he helped deliver justice to hundreds of survivors of physical, verbal and emotional abuse. Ben is a seasoned negotiator and litigator who brings the toughness and empathy he developed as an Assistant District Attorney to his matrimonial and family law practice, which has been his primary focus area since 2014.
During his career, Ben has developed a keen understanding of the psychological elements of litigation and negotiation. For instance, Ben knows you never back down to the demands of a bully or a narcissist. Ben believes the best lawyers always stand up for their clients, especially when the going is hardest. Ben devotes the same energy and compassion to every client – whether she or he is a professional athlete, Fortune 100 CEO or a stay-at-home parent.
Ben understands that while it is ideal to resolve a case amicably, the other side sometimes makes this impossible – so an attorney should never hesitate to go to court to achieve what is best for the client. A skilled and accomplished trial attorney, Ben has successfully tried numerous complex cases in New York’s Supreme and Family Courts and in the United States District Court, Eastern Division. Ben stands tallest when the stakes are highest: as a criminal defense attorney he twice won acquittals after trial for clients facing life in prison.
Widely regarded as an expert in domestic violence issues, Ben serves on the Domestic Violence Committees of the New York State Bar Association, Family Law Section and the New York City Bar, where he has lectured on issues relating to power dynamics and coercive control, and he is frequently brought on as a consultant by other attorneys in cases involving domestic violence. Ben is also a member of the American Bar Association and the Jewish Lawyers Guild.
Prior to founding the Firm, Ben practiced at three of Manhattan's premier family and matrimonial law firms, including Cohen Clair Lans Greifer Thorpe & Rottenstreich LLP, where he worked numerous cases alongside industry legends Robert Stephan Cohen and Bernard E. Clair, and Rower LLC, where he was a partner.
Ben received his B.A. magna cum laude from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 2000 and is proficient in Hebrew. In 2007, he graduated Order of the Barristers from Brooklyn Law School, where he has served as an adjunct professor of trial advocacy since 2014.
A father of three, Ben lives with his family in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
