About Us

Abby Moscatel, Esq.

Abby Moscatel earned her B.S. in Legal Communication from Ohio University in 2002.  After college, she was a fellow with the Ohio Legislative Services Commission and took a spot with the Senate Caucus, and then moved to Washington D.C. In D.C., Abby ran a fruitful national grassroots students’ rights campaign to repeal a law blocking Federal Financial Aid to applicants with drug convictions.  Abby got her J.D. from Los Angeles’s Southwestern Law School. After 11+ years of Los Angeles litigation and trials, mostly for a Fortune 50, Abby moved the family to rural Montana. Her street and courtroom skills allow her to fight vigoriously for her clients, while her obsession with the intersection of technology and law keeps her practice cutting-edge. Her best-selling book, “Tomorrow’s Jobs Today: Wisdom and Advice from Thought Leaders in AI, Big Data, Privacy and More,” includes interviews with the most dynamic trail-blazers in technology around the globe. She produced The Little Girl With the Big Voice, a DIY award-winning documentary film about the mesmerizing and tragic true story of the iconic Mary Small, a child prodigy, radio singer and Broadway star whose moxie and resilience made her a defining symbol of the Greatest Generation. Abby practices in Montana, California, and in federal courts, often collaborating with larger firms to take complex cases to trial.


Abby is an exceptional attorney. She navigates here cases with the best interest of her client at the forefront. She has superior deposition skills and is amazing in trial. I am honored to have worked alongside Abby.

Abby is highly competent, thorough, and detailed in her workup and assessment of her cases. Abby is also ethical and professional, treats her opposing counsel with respect, and is very responsive to her clients’ needs.

Both as a public speaker and healthcare attorney, Abby is an authority and forward-thinker in her field. She has a great ability to take giant subjects, such as new litigation trends under the Affordable Care Act, and present them to an audience in an easy to understand, accessible and interesting way. She has a powerful intellect, broad vision and keen insight into national trends, industry trends, the relationship between policy, politics, regulation and business, and I regard her as a highly credible “thought leader,” to use a LinkedIn term. She brings all of these skills and attributes to her work as a lawyer, and her clients and firm benefit greatly.

I can’t say enough good things about Abby and her team @ Blacktail Law Group. I found myself in a really tough spot needing some quick turnaround on a very important legal matter and Abby went above and beyond in her communication, thoroughness, follow-through, and precision clarity. It doesn’t take long to ascertain that she’s in your corner, has a passion to help people, and has a wealth of knowledge and experience to deploy on your behalf.

I absolutely love Blacktail Law Group! Abby was so helpful with my case. She was accessible and prompt. The positive outcome of my case was, I believe completely due to her thoroughness and her knowledge of the law. I would without reservation, recommend Blacktail Law Group to anyone who needs an attorney who will be your true advocate.
