Creative and Dreams is proud to welcome a new talented and creative professional to our wonderful family of unique talent and expertise.
Mike Moore was Attorney General of the State of Mississippi from 1988 – 2004 and now practices law in the areas of dispute resolution and governmental relations with his own firm, Mike Moore Law Firm, LLC, in Flowood, Mississippi. Prior to opening his own firm, Mr. Moore practiced with Phelps Dunbar in Jackson, Mississippi.
He received national attention in 1994, when he filed the first suit against thirteen tobacco companies making Mississippi the first state to insist that cigarette manufacturers reimburse the State for costs it incurred treating smoking-related illnesses. The suit resulted in a $4.1 billion settlement for the State of Mississippi. Mr. Moore also led the national tobacco litigation effort, which resulted in a $246 billion recovery for all of the states. Mr. Moore later appeared in several scenes of the 1999 Michael Mann-directed film, The Insider, which depicts some of the events that led to the settlement. Before his sixteen years as Mississippi’s Attorney General, he served as District Attorney on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for two terms.
In 1992 Mr. Moore became the first resident Mississippian to be selected as one of the Ten Most Outstanding Young Americans by the National Jaycees. Recognized by his peers as a leader, in 1994 his fellow Attorneys General bestowed upon him the prestigious Wyman Award, naming him the most outstanding Attorney General in the Nation. Mr. Moore also served as president of the National Association of Attorneys General. In 1998 the National Law Journal named him “Lawyer of the Year,” and Governing Magazine named him “Public Official of the Year.” In May of 2003 the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids presented Mr. Moore with their “Champion Award” for a decade of service in protecting America’s young people from tobacco addiction and his role in protecting the nation’s health. In 2004 he was the recipient of the Julius Richmond Award, which is the highest award given by the Harvard School of Public Health.
Mr. Moore continues to stay very active in tobacco prevention work across America. He chairs The Partnership for a Healthy Mississippi, Mississippi’s tobacco prevention program that he founded after the settlement in 1998, and serves as chairman of the State’s Tobacco Control Advisory Council. Mr. Moore serves as a board member for the Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, and the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and serves as a trustee for the Stennis Center for Public Service.
Mr. Moore is married to Letitia and they have one son, Kyle, who is married to Ashley, and a brand new grandson, Stone.
