Atlantic County Assistant Prosecutor Megan A. Moore

MAYS LANDING-Atlantic County Assistant Prosecutor Megan A. Moore, says that there has been no time more meaningful than now to be a diverse female attorney. Assistant Prosecutor Moore said she is emotionally moved, following the recent nomination of the first Black female to the U.S. Supreme Court. She said that more law students, young women and girls may have the opportunity to see a Supreme Court that reflects their cultural heritage.

“During Women’s History Month and every month of the year, I am proud and supportive of the hardworking women who serve at the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office. Assistant Prosecutor Megan Moore is one of those women serving at ACPO who is committed to professionalism and representing our agency in the best interests of the diverse communities in Atlantic County,” said Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Cary Shill.

One of Assistant Prosecutor Moore’s early role models was her late grandmother, Shirley Moore.

“Through my grandmother, I learned confidence,” Assistant Prosecutor Moore said.

Assistant Prosecutor Moore said that her grandmother was completely herself – elegant and comfortable in any room, while graciously making others feel at ease around her.

“She passed (away) knowing that I had become a prosecutor, after having encouraged me in my life and career journey every step of the way,” Assistant Prosecutor Moore said of her late grandmother.

Assistant Prosecutor Moore considers her mother, Andrea Moore, her greatest icon. Assistant Prosecutor Moore said Spanish has woven a bold and intricate pattern throughout her life and she credits her mother for the language skills she has developed.

“The opportunity to learn a second language is one of the greatest gifts my Mom could have given me. My Mom instilled in me a love of words and a love of languages. With her guidance, I learned Spanish early in primary school and I chose to study the language intensively in college,” she said.

Assistant Prosecutor Moore would later use Spanish in community service and in her professional career, including interpreting for government organizations such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Assistant Prosecutor Moore said that heritage months are vital to commemorate history and actively work towards unity each day. She said she is proud to be a diverse female lawyer today and part of a law enforcement agency like ACPO that values these principles.

Thank you for your service Assistant Prosecutor Moore!
