The Law Office of Michelle Moore, Ltd. was established in February, 2001, following Ms. Moore Nortons years as a law clerk and Assistant States Attorney for DuPage County, from 1994 to 2000, and affiliation with a general practice firm located in Cook County, Illinois from 2000 2001. As an Assistant States Attorney, Ms. Moore Norton spent more than two years prosecuting traffic, misdemeanor offenses and DUIs and summary suspensions, exclusively. During that time, Ms. Moore Norton became intimately familiar with all the nuances of successful criminal/traffic/DUI prosecution, and pitfalls where patrol officers are not fully trained and aware of proper protocols and issues in search and seizure. This familiarity provided a substantial foundation for her later work as a criminal defense attorney. During these formative years in her legal career, Ms. Moore Norton laid the foundations for positive, productive and professional relationships with colleagues in the legal field.
