Practice Areas

Business Law

Unfair business practices consist of deceptive advertising, false statements and oppressive business conduct in all areas of business including sales of goods, sale of services, property or real estate. It also includes conspiracy (when two or more persons concoct a plan to defraud, mislead or gain an unfair advantage over other people in business dealings).

Contract Law

A contract is an agreement between two or more persons or entities, creating an enforceable obligation to do, or to refrain from doing, a particular thing. Contract law is a specialized and often very complex subset of business law. Regardless of whether your business is a one-person operation or an international corporation, legally sound contractual agreements are the life blood of a company. For this reason, it is very important that you work with an experienced contract attorney when a dispute arise

Family Law

Divorce and other challenging family law matters can significantly impact your life. Experienced  family law attorney Steve Mooney represents clients in all areas of family law, including those involving divorce matters with related real property and business issues, spousal and child support, contested child custody, prenuptial agreements, domestic violence, same-sex marriages, domestic partnerships, domestic violence, wills and probate and other complicated matters that must be handled with a high degree of competence and care.


Litigation is the act of carrying out a lawsuit in a court of law. It encompasses many different subjects. First, a Summons is issued along with a complaint. Those documents are served on the person being sued. Then the person being sued has to answer the complaint or else a default judgment will be taken against that person. That is good for the one suing, and very bad for the one being sued.

Personal Injury

A personal injury case arises out of an act or failure to act which causes injury to the plaintiff. Personal Injury cases manifest out of negligence, intention or strict liability, although the latter of these is applied in a very limited way in California.

Real Estate Law

Orange County real estate attorney, Stephen J. Mooney, represents clients in matters pertaining to real estate disputes. These can be very complex issues which, without legal intervention, can cost you significant time and money. While many real estate disputes can be resolved without having to resort to litigation, sometimes taking the matter to court is necessary in order to protect your rights and interests.

Criminal Defense

When your legal rights and liberty are at stake, you cannot trust your legal representation to just anyone. You need a Orange County criminal defense attorney who has experience with your specific type of case. Whether you have been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, skill and know-how matters!

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes are committed by those who are often employed in government or business. However, the average individual who is making an insurance claim or filling out a tax form can be accused of a white collar crime as well.
