Amanda Moore’s compassionate approach to her probate clients comes from her long legal career in public service. After graduating from Yale Law School, she clerked for the Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. After clerking, she was awarded an Equal Justice Works Fellowship to represent clients in need at a civil legal aid firm. Amanda later worked for a national law and policy organization focused on economic and racial justice. She has taught at Vanderbilt Law School, Middle Tennessee State University, and Morehead State University. Her commentary on bankruptcy law has appeared in the New York Times Letters to the Editor and the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Amanda serves as an elected member of the Board of Education for Murfreesboro City Schools. She is a member of the Middle Tennessee Lawyers Association for Women and the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels. She has served on the boards of the Stones River Watershed Association and the Appalachian Citizens’ Law Center and was selected to participate in the Commonwealth Society at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital.
She is married to Jason Vance, a professor and librarian at MTSU; they have two teenage children.
