In 1984, the Boston Police Department took the unprecedented action of having Mr. Moura’s firm conduct investigations into suspected corruption within the department. The investigation concluded in 1989 with the indictment and conviction of several Boston police officers. In a letter of gratitude and recommendation, the Police Chief wrote, “Mr. Moura and his firm exhibited an expertise and level of ethics that astounded even the most cynical of us who had entrusted him with this awesome task!” In 1986, the Boston Police Department again hired Mr. Moura’s firm to head major drug investigations in the city. These investigations led to a 100% conviction rate for those arrested and tried. The police chief commended Mr. Moura for maintaining the confidentiality agreement regarding this investigation despite intense media pressure. He wrote, “I can assure you that Mr. Joseph Moura is the most professional, ethical and trustworthy private investigator I have ever had the pleasure to be associated with.”
Over the years, Mr. Moura has represented numerous high profile clients including world renowned athletes, career politicians, entertainment figures and city officials. These clients typically seek out his representation during a time of great difficulty and stress.
