Associate Attorney:

Vanessa Moore is an Associate Attorney at Wong Fleming, her passion in the legal field began as a child and has brought her into legal positions in many different fields. Vanessa is an experienced attorney who has focused on complex family law issues, such as multi-jurisdictional custody battles, long-term marriages, high asset dissolutions, and issues involving abuse. Vanessa truly cares about her client's well-being and will work hard to make sure her clients are not overwhelmed by the legal process.

Working With Me:

I believe that every person has a story to tell, I will listen compassionately and truly listen and hear my clients. At the same time, I am honest and will not set my client's up to fail, I prefer to set realistic expectations and over deliver rather than make impossible promises and under deliver. I prefer open lines of communication with my client, if you have a question just ask. Family law is best described by taking it day to day, each day your case will change, and I will adapt to each change as it comes.

Passion for Family Law:

As a small child my parents went through a highly litigated divorce, it was those moments that sealed my destiny. I knew I was going to be a lawyer and someday work with families just like mine. I was inspired by the ability of the lawyers to objectively provide advice, passionately advocate, and command respect from both opposing counsel and the parties themselves. Since then I have dedicated myself to become an exceptional attorney. During High School I completed a report on batter women syndrome and it's impacts on the law. While in undergraduate studies I completed a semester in Washington D.C working with attorneys and politicians. In Law School, I practiced law for an entire year gaining valuable experience under the supervision of an attorney. I strive to be an exceptional attorney not just for my clients, but for the myself and the legal field in general.

Background:

I am a Vancouver, BC, Canada native, born to an Indian immigrant father and Caucasian mother. My family moved to Virginia after my parent's divorce and spent several years living on the east coast. Afterwards moving to Seattle, WA where I have resided ever since. I consider myself a Pacific Northwest native with a splash of southern charm and hospitality.

I am a double graduate from Seattle University and Seattle University School of Law with a double bachelors (political science and humanities) and juris doctorate degree. My work history includes legal staff support for small family law firms, non-profit groups, big tech companies and customer service experience at large retailers. I have been a receptionist, nanny, personal shopper, trainer, paralegal and everything in-between.

I enjoy cooking for my loved ones including baking my own bread, hiking and camping with my dog Pickles, and dancing. My life goals include traveling to 50 different countries, joining my husband on a sailing crew, and entering a cooking competition (preferably Chopped).

Relaxed peace of mind
Parents of special needs children are painfully aware that parenting doesn't end after 18 years. Sometimes the challenge of caring for adult disabled children is elevated after childhood, in that you face the same (or even intensified) responsibilities, but with less energy to throw at them. My days are preoccupied with diaper changes, medication administration, range of motion exercises, g-tube feedings, seizure control, the ordering and management of home medical supplies, help with activities of daily living, transportation, doctor appointments, and (...ugh...) insurance claims. An added responsibility that I'm guessing most special needs parents don't anticipate (or, at least, don't have a full appreciation for) once the child(ren) turn 18 is upkeeping legal guardianship. It's not just something you file for, and it's done for life. There is documentation and filings - for each dependent - that have to be meticulously kept up to date. That is what Vanessa has done for our family - she has made something (something potentially time-consuming and overwhelming) relatively easy for us. I don't know that there's anything I value more than someone making something easier for me, and that's exactly what Vanessa does. To be honest, I'm not even overly familiar with the exact requirements of guardianship. That's the beauty of Vanessa's assistance. She sends me occasional forms to fill out. I fill them out and send them back to her and she keeps everything legal for us so we don't end up with the added, nightmarish scenario of an expired guardianship. I can rest easy that everything is well in hand. I highly recommend Vanessa; she's offers relaxed peace of mind, and what's more valuable than that?!

Client For Life
I have been working with Vanessa for over 6 years and I can honestly say my life has changed for the better. From the moment I hired her, she proved her knowledge, and expertise in family law. Her overall confidence and attitude toward my situation made it apparent that we were well-prepared for every issue or event that arose. Vanessa has been an exceptional advocate through many of life's curveballs. She has always kept me well-informed and provided the tools I needed to make hard decisions. I sincerely want to thank Vanessa for not only fighting for me through some of the toughest moments of my life but always protecting my interest. I highly recommend Vanessa to anyone!

Amazing Advocate and Winner
Vanessa has been absolutely great to work with. She has supported me with my ongoing challenges and matters dealing with my ex wife. Vanessa is very strategic in her approach, thoughtful in her tactics and, importantly, successful in getting the best outcomes possible.

Amazing professional
Vanessa is such an amazing lawyer and I feel so lucky to have had her on my side during my recent divorce. She made me feel safe and protected during one of the most painful and vulnerable times of my life. I absolutely recommend Vanessa to anyone looking for an attorney for family law.

Client champion
We faced what we thought would be a monumental task in a parenting plan amendment for my son. Vanessa Moore was hired by him and she took control by guiding him and giving him strong advice whenever they hit a crossroads. She is a great negotiator. She tells you what will work and what won’t. Then the case made a turn where my husband and I had been drug into it by the other party. Vanessa graciously accepted our request to be our council as well. And when all was said and done everything worked out for us. I know this was all due to her values, compassion for her clients and her ability to make you feel worthy of her time. Anyone would be lucky to call her their lawyer. She’s one of the good ones.

Conversation
I spoke with Vanessa about a civil protection order filed against me. Although I'm still considering my options (she's a very strong candidate), I'd like the public to note that she struck me as a particularly honest individual, which is something I genuinely value. She was incredibly helpful in helping me understand the details of my case and alleviating a lot of uncertainties -- certainly more so than most of the other ~20 attorneys I've contacted. If I were certain I needed a lawyer (I'm still debating), she would stand at the top, or very close to it, of my list. If you're seeking help in her area of expertise, I'm sure she'd be an incredible resource.

Very compassionate yet tough
Vanessa got the job done! She got me what I deserved and helped keep my anxiety low throughout the whole process. We met a few times, but she was always cautious to keep the meetings efficient to not pad my bill (I was working within a tight budget). I had hired a different lawyer before I met Vanessa who was incredibly!! costly!! and didn’t have my best interest at heart. After shelling out a lot of money to the other lawyer, I found Vanessa which was the best thing I could have done. I would highly recommend Vanessa. She pushed on my ex’s lawyer who was constantly dragging his feet. Now, my divorce is done, and I feel free as a bird! Thank you, Vanessa!!

Divorce Case
I have had the privilege of having Vanessa as an attorney in my year long divorce case. The case was not as simple since there were two countries involved. Vanessa was extremely thorough with her research and addressing my concerns. She is extremely organized and stayed on top of everything very patiently and with empathy. I would not hesitate to recommend Vanessa to any friends or family members looking for an experienced divorce attorney.

Vanessa helped me with custody of my granddaughter. She was very clear with the process and paperwork needed. It was completed in a timely manner. Every time I had a question, I could call, she would answer or she always called me back. She worked hard to win my case and I felt she honestly cared. I recommend her and I will definately call on her services again.

Excellent Pre-Nuptial Attorney
Vanessa really did a good job explaining to me the intricacies of my case and I was very happy with the final Pre-Nuptial agreement reached. Also, she was willing to answer my questions post marriage. I would highly recommend her.

Professional yet friendly
Vanessa was a great lawyer for our adoption process of our two grandchildren. She was attentive to all our questions and readily available when necessary. She was professional yet friendly which made us feel comfortable to communicate with her. We would use her again if we need too but hopefully not! Otherwise we will definitely recommend her.

Life saver!
Vanessa Moore took over my divorce case a few months after I filed. My previous attorney was unable to continue, and I was behind and disorganized. She quickly got me back on track. My goal was to resolve things without trial if possible. Over the next year, Vanessa tried everything we could think of to get my ex and her attorney to negotiate in good faith. My ex’s attorney tried to trick and mislead us many times, but Vanessa caught every attempt. When it became clear that trial was unavoidable, she switched focus completely to prepare the best case possible. At the trial, she was flawless. She handled every argument and random attempts at distraction from the other side. She presented organized, complete and verifiable evidence to counter their attempts to rewrite history. After trial, the opposing attorney did everything imaginable to delay judgement and to convince the judge that the facts were different from what was presented. He was arrogant and insulting. Vanessa was calm and professional and most importantly, she was right. And when I became anxious and stressed, she listened to my concerns and answered every question. In the end, the judgement was better than I had hoped for. I would work with Vanessa again in an instant. But, hopefully, not on another divorce.

Very good representation, and very focused and solid in court
Ms Moore is busy, but when she is on your case she is quite focused and very solid in the court setting and representing you. She was clear about where I was incorrect and helped to steer me in a better position for wrapping up my case. Getting through all of the external noise is what I needed.

Very professional, dedicated, and dependable lawyer!!!!
From the moment I met Mrs. Moore during the first consultation, I knew I needed her to represent me. She was very professional and very involved with every bit of my case from day one. I always received quick responses from her and I always felt she "had my back". My case involved a motion to relocate out of state with my children and with her representing me, I ended up winning my case. My case was not an easy one but she always gave me the confidence that she would do everything in her power to help me win and always put me at ease with all the deadlines and paperwork that was involved. I would highly recommend Vanessa Moore as an attorney you want by your side. I can say from my personal experience that she will always fight for her clients to win their cases and is an expert at knowing the laws. I will be forever grateful for Mrs. Moore in her assistance in winning my case.

Lifesaver
Being a young adult and going through a divorce is very difficult. There were so many terms and situations I wasn't aware of and had no idea how I should proceed. Vanessa was very firm yet understanding and walked me through all my options and possible outcomes. She was always real with me and I had faith that she was doing everything she could for my best interest. She handled my case quickly knowing a drawn out case would be more costly for me. I hope I never have to use her services in the future, but if i do I would feel safe knowing she was my lawyer.

She’s Amazing!!!!
I am so thankful I had the opportunity to work with Vanessa in my family matter. She was really amazing! Help me take that extra stress of doing this on my own. She was really sensitive to things needed to be. She was really straightforward when needed to be. I like that she doesn’t sugar coating things but yet she can show her passion of her work.

Great Experience
I had a great experience working with Vanessa on my divorce. She was very knowledgeable, accessible and very reasonable with the number of hours she billed (I know this because opposing counsel charged more than double).
