In her 12 years as an administrative law judge (ALJ) at the Illinois Commerce Commission, Moran was responsible for managing complex utility regulatory matters filed before, or initiated by, the agency. To enable a correct and sustainable agency decision, Moran would  examine the sufficiency of the pleadings; rule on motions in accordance with the agency rules of practice; consider pre-filed expert testimony; preside over evidentiary hearings; analyze the logic and consistency of the parties’ oral and written arguments; research and construe state/federal law; and ultimately prepare, on the basis of the record, a recommended order for the agency’s consideration.

At the very start of her career, Moran gained valuable legal skills while serving as an Assistant Attorney General (in both the Public Utilities and Civil Appeals bureaus) and by meeting the challenges of criminal defense work as an Assistant Public Defender in Cook County. For over 10 years, she has been developing regulatory ethics programs for both local and national organizations. Recently, she has created a program that addresses cognitive biases.
