YAKIMA, WA.-Tuesday, October 04, 2016:

Adam Moore whose namesake is John Adams, the second U.S. President, is the 2016 recipient of the Washington State Bar Association’s Civil Rights Law Section: “Distinguished Service Award.”

Each year the Civil Rights Law Section of the WSBA recognizes esteemed individuals who have made notable contributions to the cause of civil rights nationally and/or in Washington State.

Recipients are generally attorneys that have championed the cause of civil rights protections. In 2016 the Civil Rights Law Section of the WSBA is honoring Mr. Adam Moore, who recently retired in January of this year, with this highly prestigious award.

Mr. Moore spent his 45 year career fighting for people from all walks of life here in Yakima. Many of whom were at grave risk of having their liberty permanently taken away.

“It is difficult to imagine a more difficult venue than the Yakima Valley when it comes to defending the right of those accused of crime, said 4th District Governor, William D. Pickett, Adam has been a voice for the voiceless in the Valley for as long as I can remember. Very Few lawyers have contributed more to protecting the rights of the accused than Mr. Moore.”


WSBA 4th District Governor William D. Pickett can be contacted for additional information at his office here in Yakima at: 917 Triple Crown Way Yakima, WA. 98908
