Douglas S. Moore comes to our firm as a returning member of the Vermont Bar. He holds a BA from Yale University, a JD from Vanderbilt Law School and an MDiv from the University of Edinburgh.
Doug began his law practice as an associate in the Chicago law firm of Pope, Ballard, Shepherd and Fowle in 1972. He went on to become a partner with the trial firm of Foran, Wiss and Schultz before moving to Norwich, Vermont in 1982. Doug practiced with the firm of Brownell, Hoyt and Brooks and its successors including Teachout, Brooks, Moore and McNally through 1992. He concentrated in civil litigation ranging from Act 250 matters to contracts to medical malpractice. In 1992, Doug left the practice of law to attend seminary in Scotland and for the past 25 years, has served as pastor in Sharon, Norwich, and St Johnsbury, Vermont as well as in New Orleans, LA, Downers Grove, IL and Madison, WI.
Doug’s decision to attain reinstatement to the Vermont Bar opens the way for him to combine his two careers. Doug returns to share his experience with our firm and to find ways to serve the needs of refugees and immigrants on a pro bono basis.
