Attorney Profile: Brian R. Moore, Divorce Lawyer

Beyond the Briefcase: Family Law and Divorce Attorney

Yes, I’m a divorce attorney, but there’s more to me than legal jargon and courtroom drama. Here’s a peek into the person behind the suit:

Dad, Dog-lover, Outdoorsman, Tech-curious: These are just a few labels that fit, but they only scratch the surface. At my core, I’m a family man who cherishes time with family. When I’m not advocating for clients, you might find me exploring the outdoors, tinkering with tech, or simply enjoying a good laugh (often at my own expense!).

Virginia Roots, Global Interests: My journey started in Virginia, but I spent formative years in North Carolina. Now, alongside my wife (a classically trained opera singer!), we have been active in the Lynchburg community, contributing to various non-profit boards.

Passionate Advocate, Constant Learner: As your divorce attorney, I bring zealous dedication and a creative approach to every case. I’m constantly studying law, psychology, and even persuasion tactics, anything that could give you an edge. I view my role as a blend of strategist and artist, where flexibility and creativity are just as crucial as meticulous planning.

Honest & Compassionate: During our meeting, expect candid conversations and honest assessments. I’ll listen intently, understand your goals, and work alongside you to craft a strategy tailored to your specific needs and priorities.

Remember, I’m here for you: Whether you need a legal guide or simply someone to understand this difficult time, I’m here. Contact me today for a consultation.
