Moore appointed to Morrison City Attorney position

Morrison, Tenn. - Ryan J. Moore is the newly appointed city attorney for the town of Morrison. Mayor Sue Anderson and the Morrison board of aldermen named Moore to the position on Dec. 2, 2013.

In practice since April 2012, Moore's primary legal focus is in all types of family and business law. He regularly handles a variety of cases from divorce and child custody to real estate and construction issues. He also litigates criminal defense cases involving trial law.

"Morrison is a tight-knit community and I'm excited to become a part of it through my role as city attorney," said Moore. "I look forward to meeting as many residents as possible and helping the community prosper in a positive, responsible manner."

To help prepare for his new role, Moore plans to attend in February a continuing education seminar in Brentwood hosted by the Tennessee Municipal Attorneys Association of which Moore is a member.

Morrison, located on Highway 55 in Warren County, is a small town of about 700 people and serves as an industrial leader with plants such as Bridgestone, Yorozu and Morrison Tool and Fabrication. The town also recently announced the successful recruitment of another automotive supplier, expected to create over 100 new jobs.

"Morrison is the jobs Mecca for Warren County and its success is vital for our county's continued growth," said Moore.

Moore is a lifelong resident of McMinnville, serves on the board of directors of Main Street McMinnville, is president-elect for the McMinnville Breakfast Rotary Club and was recently appointed to the McMinnville Historic Zoning Commission.

His appointment to the Historic Zoning Commission is personally important given the renovation of his current office building in downtown McMinnville and the recent purchase and restoration project of the building next door - both properties being over 100 years old.

Outside of work, Moore and his wife, Ashley, have been married for six years and are actively involved in the First Baptist Church of McMinnville. Ashley is an RN at River Park Hospital. Moore's parents are J. David and Jane Moore, also of McMinnville. Moore has a brother and sister-in-law, Reece and Angela Moore, of McMinnville.

Moore can be reached by stopping by his office at 115 N. Spring St. in downtown McMinnville, calling (931) 474-RYAN (7926) or visiting his website at
