William C. (Bill) Moran Jr. has spent years providing legal services to the communities of Southern Middlesex County N.J. and neighboring Mercer County. He is a graduate of Princeton University with a degree in Politics and a certificate in Princeton’s Special Program in American Civilization. He earned his law degree from the University of Virginia and then served a one year clerkship to the Hon. Gerald T. Foley on the New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division. Immediately thereafter he entered private practice with the firm that is now Huff Moran & Orron.
His areas of practice include wills, trusts, estate planning and estate administration as well as all phases of probate and probate litigation. More recently he has developed a sub-specialty in handling the problems of the elderly including planning for long term care, powers of attorney, right to die issues and medicaid qualification. Bill has been a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (www.naela.com) for more than ten years. He also handles all phases of real estate matters and has represented numerous municipal agencies, including the Township of Cranbury for over 20 years, the East Brunswick Sewerage Authority for more than 10 years and the Monroe Township Utilities Authority for more than 30 years.
Currently, Bill serves as a Rule 1:40 mediator in the New Jersey Superior Court and is also acting as a mediator in insurance disputes arising out of Hurricane Sandy.

He has also taught a portion of the Skills Training program run by the Bar Association. He has been member of the Cranbury Lions Club and a charter member of the Jamesburg Knight’s of Columbus.
