Profile

Mr. Moore’s practice is centered on real estate and matters which are considered initially in the probate courts. He also has experience in the representation of defendants in litigated matters. Mr. Moore has represented most of the major lenders in the north Alabama market and borrowers from those lenders.

He is an agent for First American and Mississippi Valley Title Insurance companies and routinely issues owners and lenders policies on both commercial and residential property.

He has handled appeals from the decisions of these bodies.

Mr. Moore has represented city and county boards of education in the acquisition of real property for new school campuses.

One such transaction required legislation to assure title in a local board of education.
