Moore & Van Allen PLLC
Moore & Van Allen (All Offices)

Moore & Van Allen PLLC combines a law practice of the highest caliber with an informal, collegial and supportive work environment that offers unique opportunities for our attorneys to excel personally and professionally. The expertise, intellect and experience of the men and women who are at Moore & Van Allen have made us one of the fastest growing and prestigious firms in the southeast. We offer our attorneys a sophisticated national and international legal practice in cities where the quality of life is exceptional. Our national reputation and size enable us to recruit the best and brightest minds from the nation’s premier law schools. Attorneys from across the country are attracted to the sophisticated, complex and exciting work we do and the collaborative environment in which we do it. We encourage new ideas and innovative approaches to problem solving and we are committed to the use of cutting-edge technology in order to enhance our ability to work efficiently and effectively. Moore & Van Allen strives for diversity among our lawyers and support staff to allow us to better serve our clients’ regional, national and multinational interests. Moore & Van Allen hires every summer associate with the expectation that each will be offered an associate position and will eventually become a member of the firm. To that end, Moore & Van Allen provides training and development opportunities for lawyers, including in-house CLE programs and mentoring for associates. Associates also learn from members and senior associates during regular, informal practice-specific lunch sessions. Moore & Van Allen expects our lawyers to lead balanced lives and the firm’s no-minimum billable hour requirement emphasizes our commitment to that end. Furthermore, Moore & Van Allen encourages its employees to improve the communities in which they serve by proving opportunities for pro bono work, charitable giving and bar service. Our attorneys endeavor to provide a minimum of fifty pro bono hours per year – many attorneys not only meet, but exceed this goal. MVA’s project-based pro bono model allows the firm to source relevant and worthwhile pro bono matters within several practice areas including, but not limited to: domestic violence, landlord tenant, veterans, human trafficking, economic development, wills and guardianship. Moore & Van Allen also has a generous parental leave policy, a telecommuting program and a reduced hours policy for lawyers who desire to devote more time to their families, the community or other personal pursuits. No other law firm in the region encourages its lawyers to excel, grow and develop more fully than Moore & Van Allen does. Moore & Van Allen is committed to minority recruitment and continuing to foster diversity within the firm. A group of Moore & Van Allen attorneys, along with the support of the Management Committee, came together in 2000 to establish the Diversity Committee, a committee that leads the firm in shaping a culture of diversity and inclusion at Moore & Van Allen. As a Firm, we understand that our success in this mission is critical to our ability to provide the highest level of legal services to our clients. The MVA Diversity Committee focuses on internal efforts within the firm, diversity related community outreach, and client centric activities. The summer program at Moore & Van Allen is designed to give summer associates an opportunity to work on a variety of challenging assignments within the practice areas of their interest, while also interacting with other lawyers and clients. Summer associates attend client meetings, transaction closings, court appearances, depositions and the like as often as possible. Moore & Van Allen invites its summer associates to attend practice team meetings and lunches held within respective practice groups in order to see first-hand how the teams function. We host pro bono workshops for summer associates and summer associates become actively involved in pro bono cases. Summer associates will enjoy a variety of social events which take place in an informal setting, giving summer associates an opportunity to become acquainted with the lawyers at Moore & Van Allen on a personal level.
