I hired Michael Moore, AKA Ryan Moore to fix an old violoation of probabtion case. After I signed the contract and made payment I fought an uphill battle. I was never contacted, phone calls not returned. He did not show up for scheduled pre court date meetings.  I had a detective to testify on my behalf and he never even showed up to meet him. This guy is poison, he continues to lie and manipulate.

Please save yourself a big hassle and steer clear of anything with his name on it. I was told by his legal assistant Diane Mattson that my warrant was lifted.  I even asked her "are you positive" and she said yes.  I then took a week vacation and booked a flight, hotel and car to appear in court. Before I was going to travel I checked the court records and the warrant was still in place. THEY FLAT OUT LIE!!! TOTALLY INCOMPETENT!!!  YOU WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITH A LEGAL AID LAWYER. 

The icing on the cake was when I called to find out what happened in court Diane Mattson told me "The Judge is mad and we have done enough for you for what you paid".  They then proceeded to file a motion to the judge to be released from representing me which is still undecided.  I have a signed Contract from him to handle my case and from day one the feeling I had was the same as being in Jail and trying to get ahold of a legal aid lawyer.  I filed a Better Business Complaint and they have failed to respond. Look it up Complaint ID#: 90182070.

The lying lawyer

AUTHOR: Eliot - ()


 This guy Ryan Moore is a crook and out of his mind! There is no photo of the stated fugative in the mugshots database.  Also confirmed with Office Thomas Squinini and Sgt. Steve Lambert Davie Police department that these are nothing but lies and slander.  There is no reward for any such fugitive. Also, as duly noted by Ryan Moore, Mr Alitowsky does not practice criminal law and was not the lawyer on record.  This is feeble attempt to knock a legitimate complaint by placing focus on mistake James made almost 15 years ago and Mr. Moore was hired to fix but just took the money and did not deliver any services.  If you have any concerns about what you have read here, please contact the Davie police department.

It should be no surprise that in a moment of disloyalty, fugitive James Graffeo admitted that Alitowski was the "mastermind" behind the bizarre online posts.

AUTHOR: Ryan - ()

I have such a solid reputation as a lawyer in South Florida, these things mean nothing… It’s just a weird thing for a grown man to do. No one has mentioned them other than to point out that it had to be Alitowski following our business relationship being terminated… oh, and that the reviews appear to be written by someone with little education.

It is hard to believe the Alitowski actually believed that everyone that knew him was convinced that he was leaving strange messages all over the internet. They were all aimed at his former business partne. He started the day after being exposed for hiding the fact that he had been disbarred in the State he briefly set of shop in sometime before moving to Miami, the Fort Lauderdale. I think he could be in Louisville again. 

It was so obvious given the timing of it all. We tracked the posts to a fugituve whom he had befriended and although un-neccessary, in a moment of weakness the person working with Andrew admitted that Andrew was the force behind the fabricated allegations. 

"This couldn't possibly have an effect on my law practice. No one would bbelieve these obviously fake scenerios. It's so weird. He is a grown man. I found out that he had his law license revoked by the NJ Supreme Court and he has been angry with me ever since. I am pretty sure that after I confronted him, he left the State. I think he is in Louisville Kentucky again. Lawyer Andrew Alitowski moves his law practice every couple of years. 

As far as I know, Alitowski has only been stripped of the ability to practice law in one State. His reasons for moving around so much are up to anyone's guesss. Maybe he is embarrassed?

#3 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Attorney Andrew Alitowski Busted for Posting Fabricated Negative Reviews About Our Law Firm.

AUTHOR: Ryan - ()

Attorney Alitowski is responsible for posting these poorly spelled articles about our law firm. Odd and ineffective tactic from a Lawyer that jumps from State to State. New Jersey Revoked his Licesnse to Practice Law a few years ago.

I am the one that discovered his disciplinary status in 2012. I think he has since left the State to file PIP claims in Louisville. I have never heard of a grown man doing something like this. It's weird and I am certain that he is embarrassed to be busted as being deceptive a second time by me. 

As for me, I have practiced the same type of law in the same city for 16 years. My reputation is excellent. I have never even been reprimanded by the Florida Bar. Attorney Alitowski has been disbarred in one state, jumped around from city to city to State to State. Has to have been 6 or more times in the last 10 years. Even more fascinating is the fact that he lacked the common knowledge that the false and deceptive posts he has so dilligently been working on in his twisted revenge plot are actually quite simple to track. 

Here is what got Alitowski so burt up at me.


Disgruntled Louisville Attorney Andrew Alitowski was disbarred from practicing law in the state of New Jersey on September 24th, 2007.  An order signed by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner of the Supreme Court of New Jersey states that Attorney Andrew Alitowski was to have his license to practice law in that State revoked within days of the order being signed. Whether related or not, sometime thereafter, Andrew Alitowski moved to Florida and resumed practicing Personal Injury and Employment law for the firm that I founded. Lawyer Alitowski failed entirely to disclose that his license to practice law had been revoked in the aforementioned State until confronted years later in late 2012. 


At the time, Attorney Andrew Alitowski was practicing in the State of Florida while representing that he maintained an office in Louisville, Kentucky at the same time. While this in itself did not violate any ethics rules, his failure to disclose the revocation of his license to practice law in New Jersey to either the Florida Bar, the Kentucky Bar, his clients or his law partner raised serious concerns which were expressed by me to Attorney Alitowski alone.  In order to be certain, prior to confronting him, I personally confirmed that Andrew Alitowski had in fact been dis-barred from the practice of law in at least one State. Evidence of Attorney Alitowski’s being dis-barred was also ordered by the court to be posted on the Judiciary's website for the NJ Supreme Court. Additionally, the judiciary found it appropriate to publish the fact that Louisville Attorney Andrew Alitowski had been dis-barred from practicing in the State of New Jersey in the New Jersey Law Journal. The high court also found at the same time that it was appropriate to publish notice of the license revocation and dis-barring of Attorney Andrew Alitowski in the legal periodical the New Jersey Lawyer. Several lawyers were mentioned in the order who also had their law licenses revoked. From what I had been told, Andrew Alitowski had been practicing Personal Injury and Employment Law some time prior to becoming dis-barred in that State. Years later, upon verification I voiced my concerns about having a partner associated with my firm who had been dis-barred for obvious reasons. Infuriated at being made to feel embarrassed, Andrew Alitowski focused significant anger at me personally in the months that followed. This remained true even following my unsuccessful attempts to look into the matter on his behalf. To my surprise, Andrew instead became aggressive where I expected humility or remorse. Andrew’s lack of self control began almost immediately following our law firm separation and did not seem to conform to the behavior of the educated and licensed professional whom I had known.


One such example of his anger was to post fictitious and negative reviews about my practice through the use of a third party who is obviously failing at the task. This third party claims to be fugitive James P. Graffeo. A defendant who is wanted on a felony warrant in Fort Lauderdale for a drug case for whom Andrew Alitowski was once his attorney of record. While these posts are peculiar, they are un-important compared to the very real threats and actions taken against myself and my family. Over the past twelve (12) months these continuous threats by an individual sometimes claiming to be James P. Graffeo (and others referring to himself as John) have grown in severity in terms of intimidation and overall intent to instill fear. Following investigative work aimed at identifying the certain identity of the individual threating us with harm, information alerted James P. Graffeo and he immediately contacted me directly whereby he explained his reasons for wanting to harm individuals associated with my former law firm. As I suspected, the individual claiming to be James P. Graffeo had been solicited and was acting at the direction of another. I immediately contacted the State Prosecutor assigned to the outstanding drug case against Graffeo. We have filed police reports and were finally forced to move from our home of 11 years following break-in’s, sightings of and threats by an individual who did not seem to be in touch with reality as if under the influence of controlled substances. 

Random actions taken against us include this individuals gaining entry into our residence when we were away at work, stealing ammunition and random threats harm.  All of the aforementioned has been conveyed to the authorities. Without James P. Graffeo in Custody, however, South Florida Police are powerless. Please help.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of James P. Graffeo is asked to report his location to the authorities citing the Florida warrant on criminal drug charges criminal case number: 01014014CF10A. Fugitive James Graffeo was last seen in Broward County may have temporarily fled the State. Defendant James P. Graffeo is believed to be residing in West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Florida or Omaha, Nebraska. 

Fugitive James P. Graffeo is believed to work in the computer industry and has experience IT specific to information systems. 

Remember, Fugitive James P. Graffeo has made repeated threats to members of my law firm and my family. The threats made by Fugitive James P. Graffeo have been consistent and done with an apparent ability to cause bodily harm. James P. Graffeo should be considered dangerous. A cash reward is being offered to anyone who provides information leading to the apprehension of James P. Graffeo.



Since the time of this rebuttal, Lawyer Andrew Alitowski has possibly left the State of Florida and may be practicing as an Attorney in Louisville Kentucky. It appears from his website askandrewlaw.com that Lawyer Alitowski may once again be practicing Personal Injury Law and Employment Law under the firm name:

Law Offices of Andrew Alitowski, P.A.
332 W. Broadway
Suite 613
Louisville, Kentucky 40202

While a poor choice of agent to take petty action against my firm in the form of juvenile derogatory postings, there is nothing to suggest that Attorney Andrew Alitowski intended to persuade anyone to break the law, or to threaten or to intimidate anyone other than for the isolated self serving statements of the man claiming to be James P. Graffeo. 

Attorney Andrew Alitowski is eligible to practice in Florida and the Florida Bar website indicates that he has had no disciplinary history in the State of Florida. Our respective law practices are in no way affiliated.
