Jim Moore – Attorney

At Moore Legacy Law, we understand life happens. During the hectic years when my wife and I were raising our own family, we were also caregivers for our aging parents. Now as grandparents, we know that each stage of life brings its own joys and challenges - and planning for the future can make those challenging times easier. I established Moore Legacy Law in Lebanon, MO in 2014 because I value helping clients take care of the present and plan for the future.
