Upon receiving a Bachelor of Arts in English language and literature, cum laude, from the University of Notre Dame in 1965, Mr. Moran went on to attain a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the Georgetown University Law Center in 1968, during which he worked for U.S. Congressman Donald Rumsfeld and gained early insight to Washington politics. He went on to serve Illinois and the Cook County Public Defender’s Office as chief of the Appeals Division from 1970 to 1982 and as general counsel from 1984 to 1986 before joining Frank & Flaherty as chief litigation attorney in 1982.
