Legacy Law Center was founded in 2012 with the goal of providing seniors, veterans and families with a legacy of proper estate planning.
Charles J. Moore is the owner and founder of Legacy Law Center. He has been practicing law since 2005 and started his legal career as an estate planning and probate attorney in Southern California. He subsequently moved to the Princeton, New Jersey area where he continued work primarily as an estate planning / probate attorney. He began litigating estate matters as well. It was during this time that he also began serving as an assistant municipal prosecutor in Princeton Borough, West Windsor and Robbinsville.
In 2009, Charles returned home to St. Charles County, where he was raised, and founded The Moore Law Firm. That firm focused in the areas of estate planning, probate, business and estate litigation and criminal defense. In 2012, he founded Legacy Law Center, which marked a commitment to practicing only in estate planning and probate matters, areas where his true passion lies.
Since 2012, Legacy Law Center has grown considerably and has received several awards for customer service and excellence. In 2013, he was voted by the public in O'Fallon / St. Peters Flash Flyer as "Favorite Attorney". In the past several years, clients and colleagues have given Legacy high praise on Google and Avvo for excellent service, client satisfaction and its helpful and friendly staff. More recently, Charles was named one of the "10 Best Estate Planning Attorneys in Missouri" in 2018 by the American Institute of Legal Counsel, an honor he is particularly proud of.
Mr. Moore is a graduate of the University of Missouri - Columbia, where he received a degree in history, and California Western School of Law in San Diego, where he received his law degree. He is admitted to practice law in California and Missouri, along with several federal courts, including the Eastern District of Missouri (St. Louis), the Southern District of California (San Diego), the Central District of California (Los Angeles) and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals (Philadelphia).
Charles is married and lives in Lake St. Louis. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling, reading and sports. He is a Tottenham Hotspurs soccer fan, a rabid St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan and a loyal and tortured Mizzou football and basketball fan. He has traveled all over the world and is always looking forward to his next adventure.
