Message from Eumie
As a native of Orange County, I am thrilled to be in Laguna Beach working with children and families. My individual and professional experiences have made my choice to work in family law very personal to me. Although our clients’ best interests are always of utmost importance, this especially rings true when those clients are children. I am fortunate to have an amazing family that has looked out for my well-being, supported and encouraged me. I hope to do the same for our clients – past, present and future – and am motivated, excited and grateful to advocate for the families that we, at Moore Law for Children, have the privilege to represent.
