JOHN W. MOSER
John Moser has been practicing law in Florida since 1985 after graduating Florida State University with his Juris Doctorate degree and Bachelor's Degree in Criminology. John is a member of the Florida Bar and the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.
He has over 13 years as a Florida prosecutor, both as an Assistant State Attorney and as an Assistant Statewide Prosecutor. With the State Attorney’s Office, John prosecuted misdemeanors ranging from shoplifting to DUI and domestic violence. Then as a Senior Felony Trial Attorney, John handled a full range of felonies including, burglary, sex crimes, and murder. As a Statewide Prosecutor within the Office of the Florida Attorney General, John prosecuted a wide variety of crimes in courts throughout the State of Florida consisting of complex, multi-jurisdictional felony cases, including conspiracies, racketeering, public corruption, and narcotics trafficking. During his time as a prosecutor, John was a trainer and lecturer for the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association and trained Florida prosecutors from around the state of Florida in criminal prosecution and trial tactics & techniques. Today, John brings this substantial courtroom experience, competitive nature, and passion for everything he does to the courtroom for his cases.
After its creation by the Florida Legislature, John was appointed by Florida Governor, Lawton Chiles, to be the first Director of the Office of Capital Collateral Regional Counsel - Middle Region of Florida after his prosecutorial career. John continued to stay on in the position at the request of Governor Jeb Bush. For 3 1/2 years, John led this state legal office which was responsible for representing people on Florida’s death row in their post-conviction, collateral appeals. During his tenure, through the State v. Davis case, his office persuasively argued against the constitutionality of Florida’s electric chair, which was the impetus to the Florida Legislature changing Florida’s method of execution to lethal injection. Competent legal representation aimed straight at well-honed legal issues under John's leadership and talent, effectively tackled the death penalty issues and challenges that had been lingering for years in Florida's capital cases.
John first started his military career in 1977, commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the military intelligence branch of U.S. Army. He served four years of active duty at that time and continued as a reservist thereafter. As an U.S. Army reservist, John was assigned to the U.S. Central Command and then, for the majority of his reservist time, to the U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill AFB in Tampa. John was recalled to active duty within a few days of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. John served our country as a Senior Strategic Military Intelligence Analysis Manager and Operational Planner at U.S. Special Operations Command at MacDill AFB in Tampa, Florida. Within this short period of time, John was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and then to Colonel. In March 2006, while still on active duty orders, John was assigned to serve as United States Special Operations Command’s (SOCOM) Liaison Officer to the U.S. Department of Justice Headquarters where he worked closely with the FBI and other national security agencies in Washington, D.C., for three years. John ended his 31-year Army career by retiring as a Colonel in 2009.
Thereafter, John worked with The BDK Group Sports Marketing & Entertainment in Tampa to plan, organize, and execute sports & entertainment events for Super Bowl XLIII Week. These events were planned for many former and current NFL players and coaches and network television advertising and coverage. John is now once again in his hometown of Melbourne, Florida, where he attended Harbor City Elementary, Central Middle School, and Eau Gallie High School. He resides here with his wife and law partner, Lynda Moser, and their son. John's four oldest children, have all grown and have successfully graduated from college (3 Gators and 1 Seminole) and have gone on to have success in the working world as mechanical engineers, a computer technology/software systems engineer, and an exercise specialist & physical therapist.
John's areas of practice include all cases related to Criminal Defense in all cases - Felonies and Misdemeanors; DUI Defense; Domestic Violence Injunctions; DCF Dependency matters; and all matters related to Family Law - including Divorces, Paternity Actions, Modifications, Contempt/Enforcements, and Child Support Enforcement.

Lynda Moser has been practicing law in Florida since 1990 after graduating from Cumberland School of Law, Samford University, with her Juris Doctorate degree and previously from Stetson University with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science. Lynda is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida. Lynda prosecuted for nearly 3 years in Daytona Beach (7th Judicial Circuit) and West Palm Beach (15th Judicial Circuit). With the State Attorney’s Offices, Lynda worked in the Juvenile Trial, Misdemeanor Trial, and Felony Intake Divisions. Lynda prosecuted crimes ranging from misdemeanors and criminal traffic cases, such as domestic violence, DUI, and battery, to felony cases, such as burglary, sale and possession of drugs, grand theft, and dealing in stolen property.
Lynda also worked as an instructor for the University of Maryland - European Division in Kaiserslautern, Germany. She taught Contract Law for the School of Business and the 4-year paralegal program.
Lynda then went on to work for the Florida Legislature or the legislative process for nearly 14 years, both in the Senate and House of Representatives. Lynda initially worked as the staff attorney for the Advisory Council on Intergovernmental Relations. While with this joint legislative committee, Lynda worked on many intergovernmental issues, including local government sales surtaxes, the local option gas tax, occupational license taxes (business licenses), community corrections, and juvenile justice. Among holding other positions, Lynda served as Chief Attorney for the Senate Criminal Justice Committee. During that time, Lynda was Chief Legislative Attorney and was either the sole or a contributing staff member responsible for writing & analyzing major pieces of criminal justice legislation, such as “10-20-Life,” “Three Strikes You’re Out,” the postponed phase-out of the Sentencing Guidelines and creation of the Criminal Punishment Code, and the “Jimmy Ryce Act” (Civil Commitment of Sexually Violent Predators), among many other pieces of legislation relating to criminal laws, corrections, and law enforcement officers. In this capacity, Lynda consistently worked with (Trial, Appellate, and Florida Supreme Court) Judges, State Attorneys, Public Defenders, private attorneys, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, and law enforcement officers throughout Florida.
While with the Florida Legislature, Lynda conducted studies and authored several publications published by the State of Florida, including "Monograph: Community Corrections: A Review of Current Policy and Programs," "Local Government and the State-Local Partnership in Intermediate, Community-Based Criminal Sanctions," and co-authored "Florida Juvenile Justice Implementation Guide - 1994." She also co-authored "Local Government Revenues Post 1993 Legislative Session: A Combination of New and Improved," which was published by Florida State University Law Review.
While both working for the Florida Legislature and immediately thereafter at a large, national law firm as a government relations attorney and litigator, Lynda also worked on a wide variety of legislative and legal issues related to health care, medical malpractice, prescription drug wholesalers, medical education, economic development, technology development, and charter schools. Involvement in these issues included drafting and amending legislation, presentations and forums with various medical and economic associations, as well as trial practice and successfully arguing charter school applications before the Charter School Review Commission and the Florida State Board of Education.
Lynda resides in Brevard County with her husband and law partner, John Moser, and young son. She also has four step-children who are now all grown and of whom she is intensely proud of what wonderful people they have grown to be. Lynda stays busy with her son's activities, church, spending time with extended family and good friends, a budding jewelry business, and her many "junking projects" that she just can't seem to leave alone.
At Moser & Moser, P.A., Lynda's areas of practice include all areas of Family Law and Criminal Defense; Department of Revenue Child Support Enforcement; Domestic Violence Injunctions; Florida State Agency administrative-case representation; Estate Planning, including Wills, Power of Attorney, Health Care Surrogacy, and Living Wills; and Contracts.
