Joel Moore Law, p.l.l.c. is a private practice law firm located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex in Texas, one of the most important centers for economic, political, and religious activity in the United States.  The firm’s strength is in its managing member Joel Moore, an attorney with sophisticated and well-rounded legal experience who believes in treating client matters as he would want his own important matters handled.

Mr. Moore is licensed to practice law in Texas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Georgia, Illinois (inactive), and four federal courts.

legal background

Mr. Moore earned a Doctor of Jurisprudence from a top-20 law school where his peers selected him to receive the Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law Outstanding Editor Award for the most outstanding work on the Journal, and to publish on the topic of natural law.  After law school, a senior federal appellate judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit granted Mr. Moore a prestigious federal clerkship, one step below the U.S. Supreme Court.

Before founding Joel Moore Law, p.l.l.c., Mr. Moore worked for several years in the main Dallas office of Locke Liddell & Sapp llp, one of the largest law firms in the country, as a litigation attorney.  Mr. Moore then served as an Assistant Attorney General for the Office of the Attorney General of Texas, Greg Abbott, prior to accepting a trusted position as in-house counsel for James Dobson’s Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a Christian nonprofit corporation with substantial intellectual property resources and a radio show listened to by millions of people.

Mr. Moore has performed legal work for large international companies, small businesses, national banking institutions, insurance companies, product manufacturers, oil and gas corporations, individual persons, farming operations, large real-estate owners and property managers, nonprofit corporations, a Christian campground, and many churches.  He has served clients as an outside attorney and counselor, and as in-house counsel.

As in-house counsel, Mr. Moore worked with human resources concerning a variety of employment matters for a 1,200 employee firm, helped manage substantial intellectual property resources, wrote company policies and employment policies, and wrote and negotiated a wide variety of contracts impacting company business locally, nationally, and internationally.

During the course of Mr. Moore’s legal practice, he has analyzed important civil and criminal federal appellate cases for a federal judge reviewing district court opinions, and has helped clients in civil litigation in federal district courts and federal appellate courts.  He also has experience in state courts representing the State of Texas and private clients in civil litigation, and representing the People of the State of Michigan in criminal cases.  Mr. Moore’s practice has also involved state administrative agencies, mediations, arbitrations, and class action defense.
