No Attorney-Client Relationship Created by Use of this Website

Neither your receipt of information from this website, nor your use of this website to contact Moore Law for Children, A Professional Corporation, or one of its attorneys creates an attorney-client relationship between you and Moore Law for Children. As a matter of policy, Moore Law for Children does not accept a new client without first investigating for possible conflicts of interests and obtaining a signed engagement letter. (Moore Law for Children may, for example, already represent another party involved in your matter.) Accordingly, you should not use this website to provide confidential information about a legal matter of yours to Moore Law for Children.

No Legal Advice Intended

This website includes information about legal issues and legal developments. Such materials are for informational purposes only and may not reflect the most current legal developments. These informational materials are not intended, and should not be taken, as legal advice on any particular set of facts or circumstances. You should contact an attorney for advice on specific legal problems.

No Guarantee of Results

Many of the practice summaries and individual attorney biographies on this website describe results obtained in matters handled for Moore Law for Children clients. These descriptions are meant only to provide information about the activities and experience of our attorneys. They are not intended as a guarantee that the same or similar results can be obtained in every matter undertaken by our attorneys; and you should not assume that a similar result can be obtained in a legal matter of interest to you. The outcome of a particular matter can depend on a variety of factors—including the specific factual and legal circumstances, the ability of opposing counsel, and, often, unexpected developments beyond the control of any client or attorney.

Third Party Websites

As a convenience, this website may provide links to third-party websites. Such linked websites are not under the control of Moore Law for Children, and Moore Law for Children assumes no responsibility for the accuracy of the contents of such websites.

Authorized Practice of Law

The jurisdictions in which each of our attorneys is licensed to practice are within in the State of California. The ability of any attorney to engage in any activities on behalf of a client outside that attorney’s states of licensure is subject to state statutes and professional codes and court rules. Moore Law for Children does not seek, and this website is not intended to solicit, legal employment outside our attorneys’ states of licensure that would constitute the unauthorized practice of law.

Compliance with California Rules of Professional Conduct

For purposes of compliance with California Rules of Professional Conduct, the Moore Law for Children attorney responsible for the content of this website is Meldie Moore, Esq. (301 Forest Avenue, Laguna Beach, CA 92651).


Only a birth mother in an independent adoption or a licensed agency in an agency adoption may place a child for adoption. Moore Law for Children is a law firm, not an adoption agency. Moore Law for Children does not place children for adoption or accept, supply, provide, or obtain children for adoption. Nor do we advertise, solicit, request, or ask for any child or children for adoption. Moore Law for Children invites birth parents to meet hopeful adoptive parents. We can assist in an introduction, but it is the birth mother’s decision to place any child for adoption. (California Family Law Section 8609.)
