Moreno represents clients in the banking and finance, mortgage, cannabis, hospitality, technology and telecommunications, restaurant and franchise, energy and extraction, and healthcare industries. He defends consumer class actions, securities litigation and shareholder derivative suits, cross-border litigation, and litigation for high-net-worth individuals and companies with a need for Spanish speaking counsel.

As part of his pro bono work, Moreno has successfully resolved guardianship and immigration matters. He received his B.A., high honors, from the University of California, Santa Barbara; his LL.M.
