How The Moody Firm was created:

Founder Autumn Moody is an experienced civil litigator who has had a successful career working for prominent national, regional, and local litigation defense firms.  After grinding out many rigorous hours over late nights and long weekends, Autumn realized that her legal background, sales management experience and advanced business education created a unique opportunity to provide more value for her clients outside the confines of the traditional law firm model.

Out of this emerged a new company: The Moody Firm.  

The Moody Firm is centered around the client first, focusing on a consultative approach to troubleshooting and problem solving everyday business and legal issues.  The mission statement is to employ legally defensible strategies that are ethically responsible, reflect common courtesy to all and follow the golden rule while engaging in law and business. 

New Age Hybrid Legal and Business consulting Firm

The Moody Firm is not just a law firm and it is not just a consulting firm - it is both. The Moody Firm is a new age hybrid model focused on working with local startup businesses, creative entrepreneurs and emerging enterprises.  The Moody Firm is the company you call when in need of:

  1. A qualified business and employment law advisor to help tackle real issues;
  2. An objective unbiased mediator to facilitate settlement negotiations; 
  3. An independent workplace investigator; and
  4. An experienced business strategist who can help focus creative entrepreneurial energy into actionable strategies for early stage and growing startup companies.

Workplace investigations

The Moody Firm conducts independent workplace investigations into complaints of sexual harassment, discrimination and other violations of labor and employment laws.  If you are an insurance carrier (or their litigation defense counsel), or a plaintiff's attorney representing an employee and you want to reduce potential for conflict or bias resulting from investigations into sexual harassment and other employment related claims, contact The Moody Firm on how we can serve as the outside independent investigator.
