Creative Problem Solving & Other Invaluable Lessons I’ve Learned Representing Texas Educators, Legal Digest

Joey Moore has spent her entire legal career representing either public entities or public employees. Before attending law school, she gained first-hand insights on public education while teaching middle school science in her hometown of Celeste, Texas.

 

Prior to joining Walsh Gallegos, Joey served as General Counsel to the Texas State Teachers Association (TSTA) for 11 years. There, she represented public school employees in grievances, nonrenewals, terminations, certification matters, and state and federal employment law matters. She also represented management in collective bargaining, employee grievances and arbitrations, and transactional matters.

 

Previously, Joey was an Assistant Attorney General in the General Litigation Division, where she defended public entities and public officials in state and federal courts.

 

Joey is a frequent speaker at legal seminars and enjoys training school districts across the state. This former Chair of the School Law Section of the State Bar of Texas has also co-chaired the planning committee for the School Law Retreat and is on the planning committee for the University of Texas School Law Conference. In 2008, she was selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers, Rising Stars Edition as published by Thomson Reuters.
