Moore’s call was forwarded by attorney Nicole Sylvester and seconded by Patina Knights.

The 30-year-old, who is also a member of the Bar of Guyana, Trinidad, Barbados and Grenada, obtained his Law Degree at the University of Guyana in 2003 with second-class honours. He then went on to the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad and Tobago where he was awarded the Legal Education Certificate (LEC) in September 2005. Moore also obtained an LL.M in United States Law from the Washington & Lee University School of Law in 2006.

Currently residing in Barbados and working for STEERS International Legal Consultants, Moore specialises in the field of Maritime Law. He told the court that his desire is not only to practice in various jurisdictions across the Caribbean, but also help to unite all jurisdictions.

As for his intentions for St Vincent and the Grenadines, Moore mentioned that he would mainly be engaging in Maritime Law cases. As part of his duties, Moore will deal with commercial vessels and disputes arising between parties involved. He also takes on the task of handling contractual disputes, cargo, and drug related matters. He is also a certified Mediator and has done extensive Mediation and Negotiation training both in the Caribbean and the United States.

Moore is the son of former senior resident Judge of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court Honorable Justice Stanley A. Moore. (KW)
