About Attorney Paula R. Moore

I’m a native of Fort Worth, Texas having practiced law in Tarrant County for over twenty-five years. I was well influenced by my father, a Fort Worth attorney for over sixty-five years, and am proud of my newly licensed daughter who followed us both in the love of the law and its practice.  I know well he people and places of Fort Worth and am well versed in the area's history. Outside of the office I enjoy my road bikes, hiking challenging trails, camping, and paddling Texas waterways  I often travel to visit family and see the United States and Europe.  I'm a lifelong Dachshund lover and take my current rescue pup, Wendell, with me nearly everywhere.
