Greetings! I grew up in the Cy-Fair area, back when there were only five high schools in Cy-Fair. After graduating Cy-Fair in 1993, I attended and graduated from Texas A&M University in May, 1998, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Biology.
After A&M, I attended law school in Houston at South Texas College of Law, and was licensed by the State Bar of Texas on November 2, 2001. After law school, I first worked for Williamson & Associates, a prominent boutique Plaintiff’s personal injury law firm. Moving on from there, I then worked my next six years at Ryan & Dawson, where I started as an Associate and left as Partner, working on a variety of complex civil litigation matters. After leaving as Partner from Ryan & Dawson, I opened the Law Office of Troy M. Moore, PLLC in July, 2008. Since July, 2008, I have practiced exclusively as a solo attorney who focuses primarily on probate, estate planning, and plaintiff’s personal injury litigation.
My probate practice consists of contested and uncontested matters, including bench trials, jury trials, as well as guardianship litigation. Over the years, my cases have included all sorts of remedies under our laws, including Temporary Restraining Orders, Temporary Injunctions, Motions to Transfer Venue, and significant litigation regarding life insurance policies and other transfers that occur outside of court. In short, my practice consists of all aspects before the probate court, from injunctions to dependent administrations, including all sorts of full-blown lawsuits and Will contests regarding Estates.
At the time of writing this page, I have on-record filed 370 probate cases in Harris County, Texas during my career, and that's not counting filings in Montgomery County, Waller, or Fort Bend County, all of which I have practiced in. No other challenger in this race has even filed even 1/3rd of that amount. In my community, I give back in various ways, including my free monthly Estate Planning Workshop (pictured at right). As your next Judge, I will put my years of probate experience, both with clients and with the court, to use in serving as an efficient and effective Judge of the newly created Harris County Probate Court No. 5.
Outside of work, I enjoy time with my children, who are both high school-aged kids.
When I am not spending time with my kids, exercising or running, you can find me spending time with my lovely girlfriend, or flying my small plane. I have a lifelong love of aviation, and I set out to learn how to fly a little over two years ago.
I am also a colon cancer survivor. Just in February, 2023, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. After surgery, I am thankfully cancer free today! Whether I am at work or at play, I am truly grateful for every moment I have.
Please vote for me for Judge of Harris County Probate Court 5 on March 5, 2024 in the Democratic Primary.
