Ryan J. Moore: Serving the needs of the people and places that shaped him

Energy, determination, experience...all hallmarks of a successful attorney. Merge those traits with a deep love of home and a desire to best serve a client's needs at every turn, and you get Ryan J. Moore.

A fourth-generation Warren Countian, Ryan returned to McMinnville after a highly successful undergraduate career at Belmont University to work full-time during the day in his family's small business, while attending night classes at Nashville School of Law, from which he graduated with honors.

Ryan's educational background only underscores his hard work and determination. He began working in his family's lumberyard at the tender age of 8, and as a business owner today, understands the challenges small businesses face on a daily basis.

Serving his community has always been a key component of Ryan's life. Professionally, he serves as municipal judge for the Town of Morrison.  He also serves on the Board of Directors and is Past President of the McMinnville Breakfast Rotary Club, and is a member of the Morrison Ruritans.

An advocate for small business, Ryan serves on the board of Directors for Main Street McMinnville, and is a member of the McMinnville Historic Zoning Commission.

A lifelong member of First Baptist Church McMinnville, he's active in the men's ministry, children's ministry and special programs.  Ryan also served a three-year term on Belmont University's Board of Regents.  He and wife Ashley, a native of Mississippi and a graduate of the University of Mississippi, have one daughter, Sutherlyn.
