Associate Solicitor • Kendal
I specialise in all aspects of matrimonial and family law – divorce, dissolution of civil partnerships, cohabitee disputes, financial settlements and disputes including children (both private law and child care proceedings).
A graduate in German and Law, I qualified as a solicitor in 1992. I have worked exclusively in family law since then and have gained extensive experience and particular interest in resolving complex financial disputes between separating couples. I am a Resolution Accredited Specialist (with particular specialisation in advanced financial provision and children law - private). I am a member of Resolution which promotes a non-confrontational approach to resolving family disputes. I am a trained mediator, and am therefore able to offer an alternative to the more traditional methods of dispute resolution.
I am approachable, down to earth and a sympathetic listener, committed to adopting a constructive approach to the resolution of often difficult and emotionally charged disputes.
I am married with two teenage children. I would rather be skiing than doing almost anything else but I am also a keen cyclist and an enthusiastic (rather than talented) member of the cello section of the Westmorland Orchestra.
“ Mrs Moore is a credit to your firm. Alison carried out my wishes where needed and provided me with an all round excellent service. ”
“ Personal dealings were better than expected because I felt like reception staff, secretary and solicitor cared about my situation. ”
“ I found Alison Moore and her secretary to be very professional. They helped me gain access to see my son through the courts, every step was explained to me very clearly. I would not hesitate to recommend Alison Moore to anyone who needs a good solicitor. ”
“ Alison Moore saw me right away and sorted me out within 4 months and saved my life. A million thanks. ”

“ Excellent service from Alison ”
“ Could not have asked for a better service. ”
“ I am very grateful to Alison Moore for the excellent way in which she dealt with my divorce. The compassionate approach she used to steer the divorce through a difficult set of circumstances, made it slightly more bearable, along with the "tea and tissues" which were always appreciated! Alison played a significant role in liberating myself and the family from a horrible situation, for which i shall remain eternally grateful. Thank you ”
“ Thank you so much to everyone for a superb, professional and friendly service. Alison always made me feel I was in such safe hands, and was fantastic throughout. Her secretary Jayne was fantastic - always so very kind and reassuring. I have already recommended THW to several people and will continue to do so. ”
“ I can't tell you enough how grateful I am for your help and guidance. Your understanding of my feelings, fears and the trauma I have endured is truly a credit to you, Alison, and not just a family lawyer doing her job. Thank you from the bottom of my heart - you are the best! ”
“ Alison was very professional and very personable and approachable. Not a stereotypical solicitor but that's a good thing - being able to relate to clients with empathy but offering sensible, realistic advice is a must and I felt Alison did this. ”
