Lisa Moore is used to hard work. She worked full-time in business management while earning a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Columbia College, and clerked with Paule, Camazine and Blumenthal once she entered Saint Louis University School of Law. She now combines her legal abilities with her management skills as president of her law firm, where she is known as a superior litigator often dealing with complex custody and other issues.
What are your proudest career accomplishments?
Getting through law school and passing the bar while working full-time and being a wife and mother was big. Being elected president for the last three years of Paule, Camazine and Blumenthal was bigger and being trusted to protect the legacy of the founding partners is a tremendous responsibility and honor.
What inspired you to get involved in the public service or justice system?
While I was an undergraduate student I volunteered at a domestic violence shelter and I was inspired by the lawyers that I met. I wanted to be part of a profession that had the ability to impact so many in powerful ways.
What is the best advice you have given or received?
Always sweat the details and always be the most prepared person in the room.
What is something that would surprise people about you?
I am shy and more of an introvert. It takes me time to warm up to new people. I also hate conflict and I have always been the peacemaker in my family.
What is your favorite part of your job?
I love being part of a profession that has the power to impact so many in so many positive ways both in and out of the courtroom.
When you were growing up, what did you want to be?
It constantly changed. A nurse, a teacher, a social worker, and then a psychologist. What they all had in common was helping others.
