1. Moody will almost never answer his phone when called. He will often times have a full voicemail which shows how many other people he is not answering the phone with.
2. Moody was paid in advance for a case and continued to take his time and also did not alert the individual he was representing of court dates and hearing. Often times he did not appear in court and would then apologize for missing but not providing whereabouts or stating prior to court date that he wouldn't be able to attend. This would impinge consequences on his client.
3. Upon meetings with Moody in person and speaking to him over the phone he seems to have an issue with alcohol. He smelled of alcohol and when speaking had slurred speech and eye were bloodshot red. A couple times when speaking to him over the phone it has been slurred speech as well.
4. His assistant Richard is very nice and as helpful as he can be but apparently Moody and Richard are not working at the same pace or have a clear-cut understanding of cases cohesively.
The pricing is fair but definitely not decent for the lack of work he puts in and the more headache brought unto his client and his clients family. I would not refer him to anyone for services unless you had a very minor offense that is suitable for a public defender.
Think TWICE. Think HARD. Before choosing Steve Moody to represent you.
