James R. Moore, Lawyer, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in environmental law.
Having cared deeply about environment for nearly all of his life, it was natural for Mr. Moore to translate this passion into his legal work. In fact, early in his career, Mr. Moore worked at the Department of Justice during the start of pollution control in the 1970s. He was a part of the first group that enforced federal environmental law from the department. His first case was a landmark one concerning a river that burned in Cleveland. This case has gone on to remain notorious throughout the years. After many years of dedicated legal service, Mr. Moore retired in 2013. He had previously been working at Huntsman International LLC, joining the company in the late 1990s, and working his way through various executive roles before his final position as Executive Vice President. Mr. Moore has also been a partner at Perkins Coie, a regional counsel for Region Ten of the US Environmental Protection Agency, an assistant US attorney for the US Attorney’s Office in Seattle, and a trial attorney for pollution control among other positions.
Mr. Moore first earned a Bachelor of Arts at Whitman College in 1966 before receiving a JD from Duke University in 1969. Following this, he was admitted to the Washington bar in 1970 and subsequently the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, the Supreme Court of the United States, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the District of Columbia and the Utah bar. In 2016, his lifelong work was recognized by Whitman College, where he received a Distinguished Service Award.
