Philip Woods Moore Jr.

Of Counsel
Frisco, Texas

For the first 7 years of his career, Mr. Moore worked in a general civil trial practice, with an emphasis on personal injury defense and commercial litigation cases. In personal injury litigation, Mr. Moore defended businesses and individuals in cases involving premises liability, products liability, motor vehicle accidents, and general negligence claims. In commercial litigation, he defended businesses in cases involving claims for breach of contract, negligent misrepresentation, and insurance coverage disputes.

In 2008, Mr. Moore turned his attention away from representing corporations, insurance companies and insureds, and began focusing on family law. Since then, he has handled hundreds of family law matters including divorces, the modification and enforcement of divorce decrees, paternity disputes, termination of parental rights, domestic adoptions, grandparent access, premarital agreements and separation agreements. Mr. Moore’s civil litigation experience, when coupled with his deep understanding of the rules of procedure and evidence, make him uniquely able and qualified to litigate family law matters when they cannot be resolved by agreement.

Mr. Moore earned his law degree from St. Mary's University School of Law in 2001, and his undergraduate degree from the University of Houston-Downtown in 1998. Mr. Moore’s history of community involvement includes coaching boys' basketball teams and Plano middle school students in the annual Collin County Mock Trial competition. Mr. Moore is married to Kelly Booth Moore, with whom he is raising three children in a blended household. Having been through a divorce himself, Mr. Moore understands the importance of achieving results for his clients while avoiding unnecessary friction in their lives.
