Paula R. Moore

25 Years of Providing Exceptional Probate and Estate Law Services

I’m a Fort Worth, Texas native so I am well familiar with the people and places of Tarrant and surrounding counties. My practice focuses on estate planning and administration of Estates and Guardianships. I represent clients in several different areas including drafting and providing instruction for estate planning documents such as Wills and Powers of Attorney; guiding families in the probate and administration of loved ones’ estates whether with our without a Will; Guardianship matters representing Guardians, Wards, or serving as a court appointed Guardian Ad Litem or Attorney Ad Litem. Outside of the office I enjoy my bicycles, hiking, kayaking and loving my three rescue dogs.
