Client Testimonials

  • “I gained great respect for Julie’s abilities, common sense approach, and good judgment. I find her to be an extremely seasoned investigator who understands the issues, is devoted to the mission of finding the facts, and understands the business climate and the need for practical solutions and appropriate remedial or corrective action at the end of an investigation.”

  • "I am corporate counsel to a large organization in New Hampshire, which consists of multiple locations, led by an Executive Director and overseen by a Board of Trustees. At my direction, the organization retained Julie Moore to conduct an independent investigation into the allegations and provide advice and counsel to the Board following the investigation. This was a particularly sensitive matter, as the Executive Director was a prominent member of the community, and he enjoyed a solid reputation in the industry. The stakes were high. Julie handled the matter with the highest degree of discretion, sensitivity and competence. The investigation spanned 6 months, and Julie generated a 100+ page report of all the factual findings. Julie was able to distill and analyze the claims that were raised and recommend changes in the scope of the investigation as new facts became known. I was particularly impressed with this insight, as we trusted Julie to guide through the myriad of serious allegations that threatened the livelihood of the organization."

  • "I remain utterly impressed by your completing two marathons within a week but I must say your Massachusetts Bar Association presentation surpassed that feat in grandeur. Cathy Reuben and I would like to again thank you for your enthusiastic participation in the MBA Labor and Employment conference. Your presentation on issues involving electronic media and modern technology was, as usual, very well received."

  • "Julie Moore is uniquely qualified and situated to assist companies with their internal investigation needs. Ms. Moore demonstrates a strong working knowledge of the employment law area, which I believe is of significant benefit as it allows her to identify important facts and issues from both a legal and operational perspective. Her experience as a litigator enables her to understand the importance of a thorough and properly documented investigation. My experience with Julie Moore tells me that she is diligent, persevering, responsive and articulate. She seems unafraid to reach factual conclusions in investigations, and I have felt comfortable with her conclusions that I have read, as they were based upon findings of fact, as opposed to speculation or instinct."

  • "As Chairman of the Educational Committee for the Apartment Association of New Hampshire, I met Julie Moore briefly as a guest speaker for one of our quarterly breakfasts. Julie impressed our group so much that we asked her back to teach an entire segment on sexual harassment. She takes learning to a whole new level. I’ve attended past classes that really just bore you or only dictate company policies. Julie’s class is nothing like that. She gets the attendees involved and shares examples of what can and will happen. We strongly recommend Julie’s program to anyone who has employees under their supervision. Her insight and experiences are truly an eye opener. In today's day and age you cannot afford not to. I have found Attorney Moore to be highly capable. She conducted thorough investigations for the Town of Natick and City of Springfield in an independent, thoughtful manner. She is tough but empathetic, a valuable combination when conducting her work. Attorney Moore's investigative findings have been clear, detailed and concise. Public sector organizations are highly regulated and subject to significant scrutiny. Attorney Moore's investigations maintained complete confidentiality and provided executive leadership with the information required to make appropriate decisions in both Natick and Springfield." "
