Career and Service
Delynn has represented children and families extensively in varied areas of the law for the past 24-years.

As a general practice and family law attorney, Delynn continued her dedication to children and family issues, assisting clients with a focus on the best interest of the children in family law matters (including the creation and amendment of parenting plans and mediation of family disputes), adoptions, guardianships and conservatorships, and special needs and family estate matters.
Delynn has contributed many hours to the modest means program of the Montana State Bar and regularly provided pro bono services to women and children subjected to domestic violence. She was a founding board member of the Montana Children’s Protection Alliance whose purpose is to protect children involved in the legal system through DPHHS/Child Protective Services and promote education and legislation for that purpose. She continues her dedication to providing legal services to the underserved locally through her work with the non-profit, Seaside Legal Services in Laguna Beach, California.
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.
