“The worst day of a client’s life is usually the day before I meet them. It’s the day they were arrested, or their spouse left them, or their children were removed from their care. My goal is to improve their position every day, with honest and frank advice, and to make sure they leave my professional services knowing we moved every day towards a better result.”

Ms. Moore is trusted by numerous Superior and Juvenile Court judges to advocate for children throughout the North Metro Atlanta area.
“The court system is impersonal and confusing. I will explain the process and guide you through it in a way that is practical, helpful, and goal oriented. Providing my clients with an opportunity to move forward, with a clean slate, is the best part of my job.”
