Is it possible for a divorce attorney to be a real person?
We hope the answer is yes. So, who is Brian aside from being a divorce attorney? If generalizations and tags are sufficient, then he may be described as:
- Devoted parent.
- Pure-bred mutt lover.
- Amateur tech-geek.
- Always willing to laugh at himself.
If Brian was independently wealthy he would spend more time with his children and generally goofing off. Wouldn’t we all?
So what is his backstory? The short-version anyway?
Brian is a Virginia native with family throughout the Commonwealth. However, he spent much of his youth in Charlotte, NC. His wife is a classically trained singer with a Masters degree in Opera Performance from the Boston Conservatory of Music. Brian has two children, a boy and a girl. The Moore’s are active in the Lynchburg community and have volunteered and served on numerous non-profit civic and arts organizations’ boards. Aside from his family, Brian’s interests include techie/geeky stuff, unhealthy eating, excuses to use power tools, chess, fly-fishing, hiking/camping, and a lifelong study of law.
As a divorce attorney, Brian is a zealous, creative advocate who commits 110% to helping divorce clients achieve their goals. You immediately sense his passion for his clients and his divorce practice whenever you speak to him about his work.
Brian strives to stay abreast of new developments in divorce law, psychology, the science and art of persuasion, as well as many other topics that may provide useful knowledge or insights that will serve his goal of attaining client objectives. He sees being a divorce lawyer as being part strategist and part artist where creativity and adaptability are as important as detail and planning.
When you have a divorce consultation with Brian, he will listen carefully and speak candidly. You can expect honest assessments as well as compassion and understanding. He will work with you to evaluate your goals and objectives, to weigh costs and benefits, and to implement a strategy based on your final decisions.
