Born and raised in Ireland, Darren’s dream from the earliest age was to become a lawyer. After graduating from high school and law school in Ireland, Darren came to the US to sit for the New York Bar Exam at the age of 22, one of the youngest examinees to ever sit and pass the exam. After successfully passing the exam, Darren made the decision to relocate permanently to New York.
Upon arrival in New York, Darren began his legal career working with a litigation firm based on the 77th floor of the iconic Empire State Building. It was there that Darren honed his legal writing skills and also obtained invaluable experience throughout the Courts of the State of New York. It was also there that Darren began dealing with personal injury cases for the first time and realized that he had found his passion in “representing those who can’t represent or fight for themselves.”
He remarks “One of my first injury cases was an undocumented Irish construction worker who suffered a serious leg injury on a job site. Just been able to help him navigate and get through the legal process was so gratifying. Then, to be able to fight for him against the Defendant’s in court and ultimately get him the just compensation he deserved, compensation I must add that helped compensate him for his injuries, for what he had missed out on and compensate him for the rest of his life was one of the most satisfying things I had ever done and genuinely, from there, I knew this was my calling.”
After a number of years’ in midtown Manhattan, Darren obtained a job with one of the top New York personal injury firm’s and spent seven years at that firm. There, he focused his practice on construction accidents’, motor vehicle accidents’, slip and falls’, trip and fall accidents’ and premises liability accidents’. Darren worked under and alongside some of New York’s best attorney’s and gained invaluable experience. During his tenure, Darren spent nearly every day in the Courts of New York and the outer boroughs and counties, arguing motions, attending conferences and trying case’s before juries when necessary as well as utilizing his negotiation skills both inside and outside of the courtroom to settle personal injury cases’ and obtain the best results for the firms’ clients.

In January 2019, Darren then founded The Law Offices of Darren T. Moore P.C. As he states himself,
“At the prior firms I worked alongside and I worked under some of the very best attorneys in the field and got invaluable experience. I settled hundreds and hundreds of cases and where needed, I tried cases to verdict before judge and jury. Trying cases is something I thoroughly enjoy doing and it’s also important that Defendants and the insurance companies know that you are happy to put your case before a jury if they won’t accept responsibility and compensate your clients. With all of that experience, I knew it was time for me to set up my own firm and provide my clients going forward with the outstanding service that they deserve in the pursuit of justice for them.”
