Mr. Moberly has practiced for over 20 years in the areas of criminal defense (both State and Federal, from major felonies to misdemeanors), white collar crime (including Medicaid Fraud), fish and wildlife and environmental cases. He is admitted to practice in Alaska and Washington States, the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

As a lifelong Alaskan, Mr. Moberly grew up in Southeast Alaska, and attended college Outside (University Of Washington (Fisheries Management) and Willamette University College Of Law), but always with the understanding that he'd return to Alaska permanently.

Focusing on Fisheries as a career, Mr. Moberly worked in positions with state (Alaska Department of Fish & Game - Commercial Fisheries), federal (NOAA - National Marine Fisheries Service) and quasi-governmental (Pacific States Marine Fisheries Commission) agencies. He worked for Senator Ted Stevens in Washington, D.C. on Natural Resource and Environmental issues, and for Heller Ehrman White & McAuliffe.

A judicial clerkship at the U.S. District Court brought him to Anchorage, which had a profound effect on his life - it set him on a professional course he'd not considered before. After working briefly in private civil practice, handling corporate/business matters and helping represent a variety of Alaska Native corporations and business, Mr. Moberly became a Felony Trial Attorney at the Alaska Public Defender Agency. He has since been in private practice, initially as a solo attorney and for the past 10 years in the Law Office of Hozubin, Moberly & Associates.

Mr. Moberly's professional associations include twice serving on the Board of Governors for the Alaska Bar Association (1998-2000 and 2010-2016), and as President of the Bar Association from 2013-2014. He has been on the Alaska Bar's Disciplinary Committee since becoming admitted to practice in 1996, and has served as Special Bar Counsel and presented at the Alaska Judicial Conference regarding ethics. He has been a faculty member on a number of Continuing Legal Education courses in areas of criminal defense, motion practice and ethics. He is a member of both the Alaska and National Associations of Criminal Defense Lawyers, a member of the Federal Bar Association (Treasurer 2005-2008) and Anchorage Inn of Court (Secretary 1997-1999).

Mr. Moberly's entire professional career has been in and around courts, both state and federal. The majority of that experience has been assisting individuals navigate the often complex and emotional paths that have brought them to court.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
