About Jennifer

Learn Jennifer’s areas of practice.

Board Certified Specialist in Family Law

As the child of divorced parents, I have seen firsthand the stress the legal system can have on a family.  I was fortunate in that my parents had a wonderful support system comprised of other family members and their respective attorneys, making the legal process smooth and manageable.  It is this background that led me to law school, and specifically to the practice of Family Law.  My goal continues to be to dedicate my career to ensuring other families have a similar experience to mine.  I consistently strive to be a strong support system for those going through a difficult period in their lives by providing impeccable service and a sympathetic ear. I believe that with the right service and support, families can successfully navigate their legal matter and move forward in a positive manner.

Jennifer Moore is Charlotte's Best Family Law Attorney
I am grateful for all the family law help that Jennifer Moore gave me over the past year. She was the stable influence I needed during an otherwise tumultuous time---the voice of reason. Her wealth of experience in family law makes her stand out as one of the best legal practitioners in Charlotte. Throughout the process, I truly felt like she understood everything I was experiencing and feeling and made it all better by giving me a better perspective---and hope that there is a manageable way forward. I fully recommend Jennifer as a dynamic and very capable professional.

Highly Recommend!
I am so grateful Jennifer was recommended to me. I had little to no knowledge of how to navigate both separation and divorce. Jennifer was incredibly welcoming, kind and full of knowledge. I am very thankful for her guidance and expertise throughout this new and intimidating process. Jennifer is not only an excellent attorney but her kind and caring demeanor truly made the experience easier than I could have anticipated. I have recommended Jennifer to others and will continue to do so. You are in excellent hands with Jennifer Moore.

Jennifer was everything I was looking for in an attorney.
I had the unfortunate experience of having a very messy and contemptuous divorce. During the 3 years Jennifer represented me, she did so with compassion, wisdom, patience, and understanding. Jennifer always made sure that I understood what was taking place and why. Her knowledge of the law is extremely evident. She was always open to any questions and would respond in a timely manner. Jennifer knew how difficult the whole matter was for me and always treated me with respect and compassion. How Jennifer represented herself and I to opposing counsel and before the courts and Judges was exactly how I felt I should have been represented. She is extremely professional and articulate, and can remain calm in difficult situations. Although I don't miss our "working" together, I do miss talking with Jennifer on a regular basis. She has certainly earned all of her accolades and promotions. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of representation!

Couldn't be happier working with Jennifer Moore
I am so thankful to have worked with Jennifer and the team at Marcellino & Tyson as I went through the separation and absolute divorce process. Throughout the many months of working together, Jennifer was professional, empowering, and guided me through a challenging legal process. I am forever grateful for her commitment, and highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Jennifer is highly skilled and knowledgeable in family law.
Jennifer is highly skilled and knowledgeable in family law. I now have piece of mind and resolution that I did not think I would ever have. She was kind and patient in listening to my concerns and situation, however she was firm and aggressive protecting my best interests and finding speedy resolution. She and her team were wonderful to work with and always responded in a very timely manner. They kept me updated every step of the way. I highly recommend consulting with her.

Total professional and pleasure to work with
In June of 2017 I came into the law office of Marcellino and Tyson with the burden of facing divorce and separation from my family. During my initial consultation I was unsure about my situation until I began speaking with Jennifer Moore about my situation. She was completely upfront, transparent and most importantly honest about my situation. During the entire process of her representing me she and her staff kept me informed every step of the way. They couldn’t have been more professional and caring about me and my family. I give Jennifer, Alicia, Miranda, Jessica, Brooks, Tanya and Mary all the praise and a heartfelt thank you for your services. Jennifer, you and your staff have allowed my family and I to move forward placing us all in a better place. Jennifer, I’m appreciative and thankful for you guiding me through this entire process. Wishing you all the very best.

Easy to Work With and Knowledgeable
During a difficult time, Jennifer took care of the divorce process and handled all aspects, looking at the best angle to come up with a separation and child custody agreement.

Absolute Pleasure
Jennifer is amazing. She came highly recommended by a close friend of mine and I couldn't be more thankful. She took one of the hardest decisions of my life and made it so much more manageable. She never batted an eyelash when i would start to panic and quickly calmed me back down. She was very knowledgeable of family law and was truly a delight to work with. Would absolutely recommend her to anyone. Thank you thank you thank you Jennifer for all your hard work and wisdom, you will never know how much it meant to me.

Life Saver!
During a tough time of a break up, my girlfriend made some false claims to be able to get a temporary restraining order placed on me. I called Jennifer, and she brought me in, and we developed an iron clad plan. She put together a full packet of evidence that proved my ex girlfriends false claims, so much that the case didn't even get heard! Jennifer showed my ex girlfriends lawyer our mound of evidence, and her lawyer didn't even want to bring it to court, and they dismissed it! She also worked after the case to ensure all of my belongings were returned! She made me feel comfortable, we had plenty of prep time prior to the court hearing and she stayed in constant communication with me before. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Exceptional and Confident
During a difficult time I needed legal counsel and advice on several matters, including some that were already concluded or in place. Fortunately, Jennifer Moore plead my case(s), reduced my financial burdens, and enhanced and streamlined my order(s) as such to benefit all parties. Her dedication, procedural knowledge, court room demeanor, coupled with her diligence and moral center exceeded my expectations. A keen ability to read into an opposing attorney's strategy (even during examination/court) is another key asset Jennifer wielded, and proved our case. Unfortunately there is not enough that I can say to properly distinguish Jennifer Moore adequately here. Simply, she is the finest attorney I have worked with in the last 25 years. She is open, concise, compassionate, ethical, and willing to examine deeply to achieve success.
