LEGAL EXPERIENCE
I have been working in the field of law since the summer of my first year at law
school. The work consisted of internships with two small NYC law firms, John F
. Martin, P.C., June-August 1985; Paul M. Gulielmetti, P.C. 1986-1987. The prac
tices covered Probate, Domestic, Corporate, Medical Malpractice, Personal Injury
, Landlord-Tenant, Real Estate, Damages. I also spent several months interning
at the Center for Constitutional Rights, September-December 1985.
A significant part of my law school experience consisted of my participation in
the Cardozo Criminal Law Clinic, January--August 1985, under the direction of Pr
ofessor Barry C. Scheck (of The Innocence Project). The course materials were b
ased on NITA, and included Federal Rules of Evidence, Objections, Direct and Cro
ss-Examination, Expert Witness Testimony, Voir Dire and Client Interviews, Openi
ng and Closing statements. It also included representing criminal defendants on
misdemeanor charges in the Bronx.
In addition to my tenure with the FCCSEA, my professional legal experience consi
sted of four distinct positions, two of which were in the private sector: Schek
ter, Rishty, Goldstein & Beck, P.C., November 1987-October 1988, in NYC; and Tho
mas A. Moore, Attorney-At-Law, November 1990-July 1992, in Columbus, Ohio. SRGB
was a small commercial transactions firm specializing in commercial real estate
transactions. My own practice in Columbus was a general practice, with emphasi
s in Domestic Relations and Probate, but including Real Estate, Landlord-Tenant,
Employment, and DUI.
Public sector experience commenced in NYC with the Human Resources Administratio
n, October 1988-August 1989. I was involved in all phases of guardianship proce
edings for adults in New York City. After relocating to Ohio (my wife's home st
ate) with my family, while studying for the bar I commenced working at the Ohio
Legal Rights Service, January 1990-November 1990. I left when the contract expi
red.
NON-LEGAL EXPERIENCE
My first work experience was as a Free-Lance Musician and Music Teacher, 1975-19
83, first in Boston and later in New York City. In addition to being a professi
onal drummer and singer, I assumed managerial duties for some of the performing
groups of which I was a part. I worked as a long-term substitute music teacher
for the Great Neck Public Schools during the 1982-1983 School Year.
Non-legal business experience includes involvement in a multi-level marketing bu
siness with my wife, 1982-1993, Moore & Moore Enterprises. From 1995-1999, I wa
s involved with the Central Ohio Christian Science Broadcasting Committee in var
ious capacities, including co-founder, Chair, and Media Liaison of the joint ven
ture of central Ohio Christian Science Churches and Societies involved in utiliz
ing the media, e.g. television and radio, to broadcast Christian Science religio
us programming.
My interest in organizational development and implementation can be traced back
to my involvement as a high school student in the creation of an alternative hig
h school, The Community School, in Great Neck, NY, 1970-1973. I was one of a sm
all group of high school students and faculty advisors who helped establish, imp
lement and maintain an alternative public high school which is still in existenc
e today, quite similar to The Linworth Alternative School, located in Worthingto
n, which both of my children attended.
SPECIAL INTERESTS
I have continued my involvement in the Arts - especially music. I have been a m
ember of the Columbus Symphony Chorus since 1989, and the Soloist for First Chur
ch of Christ, Scientist, Upper Arlington since the summer of 1992. I have also
performed in local productions of "Cabaret" (Emcee, 1991) and "Fiddler on the Ro
of" (Motel the Tailor, 1993); performed regularly with the Listen for the Jazz A
ll Star Band, and worked in Columbus as a free-lance singer and drummer.
