I have practiced law in Asheville, North Carolina since 1971. I began practicing in Asheville after graduating from the University of North Carolina School of Law. I could not take the bar exam until August and Bruce Elmore, Sr. was in need of legal assistance even though I was not yet licensed to practice. My wife and I liked Asheville and we decided to stay after I became licensed to practice law in August, 1971. I got a lot of trial experience while with Bruce in both criminal law and civil law. After several years, I decided to open my own office and practiced as a sole practitioner until my daughter, Jennifer, and I began practicing as partners in The Moore Law Office, PLLC in 2007. As a sole practitioner, I practiced in the areas of Family Law, Criminal Law, Personal Injury, and Workers’ Compensation. Since Jennifer and I formed The Moore Law Office, PLLC, she has limited her practice to Family Law and I have concentrated on Employment Discrimination, Workers’ Compensation, Personal Injury, Social Security Disability, and Mediation.

I believe that it is important to have a close working relationship with my clients. I try to assure that my clients are provided with regular communication regarding the status of their cases and what to expect regarding the legal process. When I accept a case, in addition to relying on my experience, I always research the law to assure that the law has not changed or been modified by recent court decisions. I rely on computer legal research to assure that I am up to date on the most recent changes in the law.

One of my cases, Dixie Deerman vs Beverly California, is frequently cited as a leading case in the area of wrongful termination in violation of public policy. In this case a nurse was fired by a nursing home because she advised the family of a patient that they should consider changing physicians due to the physician’s lack of attention to the patient. The North Carolina Court of Appeals agreed with us that, since the nurse was doing what she was required to do by the North Carolina Nursing Practice Act, it was a violation of public policy to fire her.

I began practicing in the area of employment law because I believe it is wrong for employers to base employee decisions on discrimination based on race, gender, disability, age, religion, or in violation of public policy.
