Kimberly Moore

Assistant U.S. Attorney Civil Division

About Me

My name is Kimberly A. Moore Esq.. My professional title is Assistant US Attorney Civil Division at US Attorneys Office, which specializes in prosecution of criminal and civil cases.

My skills and areas of expertise include 20 years as a criminal prosecutor, civil law, educator of the law, research, litigation, client relationship building, strategic planning, mediation, results driven, innovative idea implementation, communication, forecasting, growth, planning, problem solving, conflict resolution, teamwork building and motivational leadership.

I received my Juris Doctorate from North Carolina Central University. I am currently involved with North Carolina Bar Association, and the American Bar Association.

I am drawn to and passionate about charitable organizations such as teaching plea bargaining in the Bahamas, Trinidad and Tobago, and I am also active with Civil Rights and Women's Issues all over the World.

My hobbies and interests include exercising, reading, gardening, dancing, and traveling.

At this moment in time, I have two career highlights. The first occurred in 2004, when I served as Deputy Special Master for the September 11th Victims Compensation Fund. Obviously, the September 11th terrorist attacks were devastating to everyone and I felt like I had to do something. I received an offer to serve in this position and I felt like it was a calling for me. In this position, I reviewed applications from victims who endured personal injuries at the World Trade Centers and the Pentagon and determined the appropriate compensation. I conducted telephonic and in-person hearings for those victims who appealed the award amounts, and listened to victims’ recounts of the attacks. As you can only imagine, some of the accounts were so extremely difficult to hear. Most days, I would go back to my room and pray for the victims. I met people from all walks of life and I believe I matured as a person and as an attorney during this detail.

My second highlight would be serving as the U.S. Department of Justice Resident Legal Advisor to the U.S. Embassy in Kosovo. Never in my lifetime did I believe that this girl from the small town in North Carolina, would be taking part in developing another country’s criminal justice system. Never in my lifetime, would I have thought that I would be sitting at the same table as the U.S. Ambassador, the Kosovo President, Kosovo Prime Minister, the Kosovo Minister of Justice, the Kosovo Public Prosecutor or other international and local stakeholders discussing how the shape Kosovo’s criminal justice system. I worked on drafting or revising Kosovo’s criminal and criminal procedure codes, and witness protection and asset forfeiture laws. Since Kosovo was moving to an adversarial criminal justice system, I introduced them to our trial advocacy skills. I brought several Kosovo judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys to the United States to become certified NITA trainers. To this day, they continue to teach these trial advocacy skills to other Kosovo legal professionals. The trainers have also conducted trainings for their legal colleagues in Albania, Macedonia, and Croatia. Under my leadership, Kosovo commenced its first National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
