Jonathan C. Moore
Attorney For Agent Orange Victims
Jonathan C. Moore is Senior Partner at the New York law firm Beldock Levine & Hoffman, LLP. He has litigated many of the most noteworthy civil and human rights cases in recent years, including representing the estate of Eric Garner, who died from a choke hold at the hands of NYPD officers in July 2014 and the Central Park Five, who were five young men wrongfully convicted of the assault on the so-called Central Park Jogger and who spent many years in prison before they were exonerated. He also was the lead trial lawyer in the historic case that found the NYPD liable for a policy of racial profiling in how they executed stop, question and frisk in New York City. Moore represented Vietnamese nationals and the Vietnamese Association for Victims of Agent Orange (VAVA) in a landmark case in the United States seeking to hold the chemical companies who manufactured and supplied Agent Orange and other poisonous herbicides to the U.S. Government during the Vietnam war liable for the harm created by the use of these toxic herbicides. He is on the board of the Vietnam Agent Orange Relief and Responsibility Campaign (VAORRC), which advocates for justice for all victims of Agent Orange, both here and in Vietnam.
