For the first 7 years of his career, Philip engaged in a general civil trial practice, with an emphasis on personal injury defense and commercial litigation cases. In personal injury litigation, Philip 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, Philip turned his attention away from representing corporations, insurance companies and insureds, and began focusing on family law. Since then, Philip 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. Philip's civil litigation experience, when coupled with his knowledge of rules of procedure and evidence, make him uniquely able and qualified to litigate family law matters when they cannot be resolved by agreement.

Philip 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. His history of community involvement includes coaching boys' basketball teams and Plano middle school students in the annual Collin County Mock Trial competition. Philip is married to Kelly Moore, with whom he is raising three children in a blended household. Having been through a divorce himself, Philip understands the importance of achieving results for his clients while avoiding unnecessary friction in their lives.

Great communicator.
I had the opportunity to witness Phillip Moore's legal expertise firsthand as he represented my ex-wife during our legal proceedings. Although he was not my personal attorney, I was thoroughly impressed by his exceptional skills and professionalism. Phillip's knowledge and understanding of the law were evident throughout the process. He approached the case with a high level of expertise, providing comprehensive legal guidance to my ex-wife. His ability to navigate complex legal matters with confidence and precision was truly commendable. Moreover, I observed Phillip's excellent advocacy skills and his ability to effectively represent his clients. He demonstrated a strong command of legal arguments and presented them articulately and persuasively. It was evident that he was a dedicated advocate for my ex-wife's best interests. In addition to his legal acumen, Phillip conducted himself with utmost professionalism and integrity. He maintained open lines of communication, consistently keeping my ex-wife informed about the progress of the case. His respectful and ethical approach to the legal process was highly commendable. Based on my observations, I can confidently recommend Phillip Moore as an attorney. His exceptional legal skills, professionalism, and dedication to his clients make him an excellent choice for anyone seeking legal representation. I have seen firsthand the positive impact he has had on my ex-wife's case. Thank you, Phillip, for your outstanding representation and commitment to legal excellence!

Advocate for Fathers Rights! - Focused on Results.
I was looking for a lawyer to Modify a Custody agreement for me. I wanted to transition from 75/25 to a 50/50 Shared agreement with my ex. I interviewed tons of attorneys and wasn't so sure of my chances since I was a father. After talking with Philip & Jolie I felt their passion for helping me and Philip was very direct and engaged. Philip was very strategic in his approach and I was able to get an extremely favorable outcome. I received 100% of what I asked for and couldn't be happier.

When in doubt, Philip will get you out!
If you're looking for an above and beyond attorney, you've came to the right place. Philip Moore and his assistant Jolie Starrett SAVED my life. I thought I was defeated, that there was no hope and that I was going to lose my daughter forever. They stepped in and competitively paved a path to victory granting me full custody of my daughter against my Father and Step-Mom. Words can't describe how thankful I am for all of their hard work and diligent dedication to our case. They told me there was light at the end of the tunnel and indeed there was! Having a team by my side, working closely with me through such a tough case while providing expert knowledge, advice and support really stood out to me. Without them, I wouldn't be able to kiss my daughter goodnight every night, each time I do, I think of them and their wonderful contribution to my life. If I could give 10 stars I would. I definitely recommend Philip and his valuable legal team to assist you with your victory as well. He's known for it, he's made for it, he's definitely the lawyer you're searching for.

Do it right the FIRST time!
Philip and Jolie are a dynamic duo! I have previously worked in family law for multiple attorneys and what I respect most about Philip is he’s direct and to the point. There are no “guarantees of best outcomes” in his approach to retain business from a client. He is very aware about intricate details in respects to Family Law and how to facilitate less emotion and more structure in a very matter of fact way. Philip is thoroughly connected in the community and respected by his peers. High profile attorneys who do awesome jobs deserve to be recognized on review platforms so others can find quality representation! As a recovering alcoholic with multiple years in sobriety- Philip empathized and presented my recovery as an asset rather than a liability. Communication has been steady and everything has been very easy to manage. As a single mother of three precious children- I made the very scary decision to spend my summer nest egg protecting one child by hiring an attorney and it ultimately effecting our whole family financially, but I prayed for the right attorney to be sent and on Sunday I received an email from Philip and his firm. Too many parents lose the most precious years and time with their children over poor or misrepresentation. Do your research! Mr. Moore has a deep rooted working knowledge of the law and fierce litigation skills. I’ve been to court for many years- my advice… Do it right the first time.

A grandparent's dilemma.
We were grandparents who, in the State of Texas, reportedly have little standing in family court. Mr. Moore, met with us, advised us on what was involved, and advised us on our best course of action. When we made the decision to move forward, he continually reviewed our progress, gave legal advice, and kept us up to date on developments. He persevered and we ultimately got a favorable ruling from the judge. We truly appreciated his and his staff's efforts.

Thank you Phillip and Jolie
Phillip is professional, but real. Never did I doubt him, because he was always honest (yet patient) with me regarding the case. Without him, I wouldn't have been able to protect the assets of my children and their futures. His paralegal is amazing as well. Thank you providing me light at the end of the tunnel and getting me to it.

So happy with having Philip as my divorce lawyer!
Philip Moore is an amazing attorney. He works with you, is very affordable, and responds to emails, calls, and texts in a timely manner to keep you updated on your case. I referred him to my twin sister. He keeps it simple and his advice is spot on. He made navigating a tough life situation so much easier. I highly recommend having him on your side during a divorce. I am beyond thankful for all he and Jolie did for my family.

Client
Phillip Moore and his support staff are the most knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and well organized legal team I have ever encountered. Mr. Moore is the man you want on your side when it comes to divorce and child custody. He is simply the best. He treated my divorce and child custody case as if my children’s best interests were as important to him as they are to me. He invests the time it takes to learn your case from beginning to end. He asks all the right questions and is phenomenal. Mr. Moore is wise, witty, and not afraid to take on anyone. He’s experienced, realistic, and an all-around great person. Mr. Moore will be honest with you, up front about any difficulties you may encounter with your case. He is hands down an outstanding lawyer and I would recommend him to anyone.

He will take care of you
Philip helped me get my son back from out of state and scored big wins against a case stacked against me from the start. He helped negotiate a deal that we discussed for my sons best interest and acted swift and honorably through the entire ordeal. He was able to use the truth and facts as a weapon and turn the tide in my case. I highly recommend Philip to everyone except my soon to be ex.

Communicative and Thourogh
Couldn't have asked for better representation than was provided by Mr. Moore. He provided on point guidance when dealing with what could have otherwise turned into a very bitter custody battle. Philip was upfront and transparent in all of his communications and was willing to do what it took to help this Dad.
