Mr. Moore is the son of two Southern Methodist University graduates – his mother a psychology degree and his father a business degree followed by a law degree. He was raised in Ennis, Texas with small-town values, including working after school on his family’s small ranch to develop the old-fashioned work ethic. He was very active in his local Boy Scout Troop and earned his Eagle Scout. He was also active in the Circle Ten Council staffing leadership camps for younger scouts and in the Order of the Arrow where he was awarded the Vigil Honor distinction before turning 18. During this same time Mr. Moore was actively involved in debate and theater in school eventually playing the lead role in the senior play. He was also active in the Future Business Leaders of America on a local, regional and state level. He graduated in the top 10% of his class and moved on to Southern Methodist University in his parents’ footsteps to graduate with a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in Public Relations as well as Bachelor’s in Business Administration. In less than two weeks from his last exam at SMU he began studying law at South Texas College of Law and while there was honored for his writing, including co-authoring the best brief in an appellate advocacy program.
Mr. Moore has practiced law since 1991 in the roles of both Plaintiff’s and Defense counsel. Most recently he obtained a unanimous defense verdict for a motorcycle product manufacturing client where a rider lost control of the motorcycle at speeds in the 60 to 65 mile per hour range. Before that Mr. Moore was lead trial counsel for another product manufacturer where the widow and toddler plaintiffs were alleging that Mr. Moore’s client’s product caused the death of the husband and child. A unanimous defense verdict was rendered in that case as well. In addition to the result, there were two other defendants added to the litigation well after Mr. Moore’s client was sued. Despite more jury issues against Mr. Moore’s clients than the other two defendants, the total fees charged as to Mr. Moore’s client were the lowest of all defendants and a fraction of the next highest – a great result at a great price.
Mr. Moore was lead trial counsel in these reported cases: Certified EMS, Inc. v .Potts, 392 S.W.3d 625 (Tex.2013);Gardner v. U.S. Imaging, Inc., 274 S.W.3d 669 (Tex.2008); River Oaks Endoscopy Ctrs., L.L.P. v. Serrano, No. 09-10-00201-CV, 2011 WL 303795 (Tex.App.—Beaumont Jan. 27, 2011, no pet.)(mem. op.); and, Academy of Oriental Medicine v. Andra, 173 S.W.3d 184 (Tex.App.-Austin 2005, no pet. history).
Mr. Moore is a member of the State Bar of Texas, Texas Association of Defense Counsel, Defense Research Institute, and is a trained mediator. Outside the practice of law he enjoys being outdoors with his son’s Boy Scout troop, hunting, fishing, snow skiing, and running. If indoors is required, then his twins water polo games or pretending to do woodworking in the garage are good options.
