Lynn Moore

Lynn Moore is a founding partner of Morris Moore and works almost exclusively in the area of sexual abuse litigation - she sues institutions and governments on behalf of survivors of sexual abuse. Before entering private practice, she spent twenty years as a Crown Attorney and civil litigator who kept survivors and victims of crime in the forefront of her mind. She has conducted hundreds of trials and is one of the most experienced trial lawyers in Newfoundland and Labrador. In 2013, Lynn decided to leave the civil service so that she could represent survivors of sexual abuse, working to get financial compensation for them. Representing survivors with her partner Stuart Morris was a natural fit.

Lynn is vocal in advocating for the return of the Family Violence Intervention Court and volunteers with the Safe Harbour Outreach Program (SHOP) – a program designed to make sex workers safer and more secure. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the St. John’s Status of Women/Women’s Centre and volunteers with Miles for Smiles – a foundation that works against child abuse. In 2013, Lynn swam five kilometres in the North Atlantic from Portugal Cove to Bell Island to help raise awareness for the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Lynn graduated from Dalhousie Law School in 1992 and completed her Bachelor of Arts in 1989. She is married and is mother and stepmother to five amazing individuals.
