Message from Delynn

I have finally “returned home” to southern California, and I am delighted to join Moore Law for Children, where I will be able to continue to focus on children and family issues. I have both professional and personal experience in several of the areas of law for which the firm provides services. Having met Meldie more than 27 years ago at Pepperdine University School of Law, I have been continually impressed by her knowledge of the law and ability to apply it in a professional and compassionate manner to improve the lives of her clients. Her devotion to children’s issues inspires me.

I am blessed with two sons, one the result of IVF conception. I am also keenly familiar with Special Education as an advocate for my own children. I am passionate about these areas of the law. I consider it an honor and privilege to work with Moore Law for Children and to represent children and families with their legal needs.
