"Jon Moore grew up in the Kansas City, Missouri area where he earned his Eagle Scout badge and graduated as valedictorian of his high school class. He attended college at Northwestern University outside of Chicago, where he graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and International Studies. Following his graduation from Northwestern University, Jon got accepted to Georgetown University Law School, but elected to defer his acceptance for a year. During that year, Jon returned to his hometown where he taught English and Debate at a local high school. Jon continued to pursue his interest in teaching while at law school, by teaching a practical law class to students at an inner-city high school in Washington, DC. Following his graduation from law school, Jon moved to Springfield, Missouri, where he worked at a small law firm in Springfield which specialized in a nationwide practice involving automotive crashworthiness. This experience led Jon to realize the joys of working for a small law firm, and working for individuals rather than corporations or insurance companies. In March 2002, Jon moved with his wife Laura to Charlotte where he began working for The Law Offices of R. Kent Brown as an Associate Attorney. In 2012 Jon was named as a Rising Star by North Carolina Super Lawyers magazine and then again in 2013 and 2014; and is the only Charlotte lawyer to be named on this list for each of those years for the field of Personal Injury. Jon has also been listed on the 2014 and 2015 editions of Best Lawyers for his practice in Workers' Compensation and is aslo AV-rated by Martindale Hubbell. Jon serves on the Litigation Section Council for the North Carolina Bar Association, and is also on the Amicus Curiae committee for the North Carolina Advocates for Justice. In his spare time, Jon likes to read, hike, run and play the piano."
