RUSSEL DAVIS MOORE V
"I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'This the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." Thomas Paine
I was born in Dekalb County, Georgia and was raised in Rockdale County, Georgia. I graduated from Heritage High School and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Industry Management from Georgia State University in 1999. While working full time as a Real Estate Title Examiner, I obtained my Juris Doctorate degree from John Marshall Law School.
I was in the Leadership Rockdale Class of 2001 and was a previous Ambassador for the Rockdale County Chamber of Commerce. I was the Vice-President of the Rockdale County Bar Association in 2011 and 2012 and the President for 2013 and 2014. I am a member of the State Bar of Georgia and the Rockdale County Bar Association and am admitted to practice in front of all Georgia Courts, including the Georgia Supreme Court and the Georgia Court of Appeals.
My primary focus in my practice of law is Family law, including Divorce, Child Support, Custody, Modification, and Legitimation. I also handle various probate and contract litigation matters. While I enjoy the give and take of the Court Room and feel strongly that litigation has its place, most cases can be settled without the added expense of a bench or jury trial. I feel mediation and negotiation should be the cornerstone of a successful law practice, with litigation being the last resort.
I grew up and still remain a resident of Rockdale County. I am currently the Chairperson for the Rockdale County Board of Ethics and serve as the President on the Board for Unity Church East where my wife, Bonny and I are members. We have a son, Russel, and two great Pyrenees, all three of whom are the light of our life."
