Attorney at Law
I’m Jim Moriarty.
People often ask me about what it’s like to be a lawyer. They ask me why I do it.
I don’t really know how it came to be, as there aren’t any lawyers in my family – I’m the first person in my family to go to college or law school – but my heroes have always been lawyers.
I grew up in Massachusetts, and I found a quote by John Adams that I find is as good an answer as I’ve ever been able to come up with
Now to what higher object, to what greater character, can any mortal aspire than to be possessed of all this knowledge, well digested and ready at command, to assist the feeble and friendless, to discountenance the haughty and lawless, to procure redress to wrongs, the advancement of right, to assert and maintain liberty and virtue, to discourage and abolish tyranny and vice?
This is a great country, and I am fortunate and proud – and grateful – to be a part of the group whose job it is to protect people and advance justice. We’ve come a long way, but there is still a lot of work to be done to keep the dream of justice and freedom alive and renewed.
That’s why I’m a lawyer. And why I’m here if I can help you.
