Tony Moss, Esq.
TONY MOSS is a solo practitioner based in Miami, Florida, whose practice is dedicated solely to criminal defense, at the trial and post-trial levels. During his 23 years of experience, he has handled a wide variety of state and Federal cases, ranging from drug offenses to bank fraud, from white-collar matters to capital murder prosecutions. He has handled roughly 50 death-eligible cases, four of which were tried to a penalty phase verdict, without losing a single client to Florida's Death Row.
Tony Moss has been admitted to practice before all state of Florida courts, the United States District Courts for the Southern and Middle Districts of Florida, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. He has been qualified to accept indigent appointments in Miami-Dade and Broward counties and in the United States District Court, and also to appear as "learned counsel" in federal death penalty prosecutions nationwide.
Tony is a proud Life Member of the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers-Miami chapter, and is also an active member of the Statewide and Broward County chapters of FACDL. He has served on numerous professional and civic organizations throughout his career, ranging from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (Commissioner, 1997-2001), to the Greater Homestead-Florida City Chamber of Commerce (current), to Florida Bar Grievance Committee 11P (1997-2000) and 11L (2010 to present).
As a believer in the maxim, "Each one, reach one--each one, teach one," Tony Moss has also volunteered untold hours toward the advancement of the legal profession and the criminal defense bar. He has served for years as a guest lecturer and faculty member at numerous defense seminars and workshops around the country, and is especially proud to be a 2000 charter faculty member of the Clarence Darrow Death Penalty College (sponsored by DePaul University College of Law in Chicago), and the recipient of the College's first Meritorious Service Award in 2003. He also provides free legal consultation statewide to prison inmates who no longer qualify for free appointed counsel, and has been a sought-after speaker for youth groups and school programs throughout Miami-Dade County.
