The Firm

Established in Pensacola, Florida in 1988, McDonald Fleming Moorhead is a team of experienced attorneys who represent clients in business, real estate, construction, probate law, estate planning and related matters. With unrivaled experience and a respected reputation, our law firm serves clients in Pensacola, Destin and throughout Northwest Florida.

In the legal profession, few qualities are more important or more indicative of an attorney’s ability than experience and reputation. The attorney-client relationship is one of trust and confidence; and, without firm ground upon which to establish this foundation, you may be unnecessarily putting yourself at a disadvantage.

At the law firm of McDonald Fleming Moorhead, we put our experience to work for our clients. Serving business clients in real estate, corporate, contract and other matters, we also provide personalized, detail-oriented representation to individuals in estate planning and probate administration. We believe in always taking a client-first approach, and using efficient, litigation-tested strategies to meet our clients’ unique business and personal needs.
