Denver associate Cheyenne Moore has been named a Pro Bono Star of 2020 by the Colorado Bar Association, making her the first among five lawyers chosen as Pro Bono Stars in 2020. In addition to her rigorous everyday practice, Moore makes a point to devote time to her community through pro bono work. "What inspires me to do pro bono work or any volunteer work are the people that I get to help," Moore says in a video thanking the Colorado Bar for the award. "As an attorney, providing pro bono services is one way in which I can give back to my community."
In the last year, she has spent more than 300 hours working on pro bono matters. For the past three years, Moore has served as pro bono counsel for a man whose rights were violated when he was placed into administrative segregation as a pretrial detainee without due process. In the fall of 2019, the district court denied Defendants’ summary judgment motion, and the case is now on appeal before the Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Moore has also volunteered with the Federal Pro Se Clinic, where she has advised two litigants regarding their contract dispute and defamation claims.
"Cheyenne is dedicated to ensuring our community has access to justice whether she can personally serve as counsel, connect other attorneys with pro bono opportunities, or raise money for pro se litigants to obtain free legal services," says Denver Managing Partner Mark Clouatre.
Moore, who joined Nelson Mullins in 2019, focuses her practice on a variety of litigation matters in the automotive industry. She also has litigation experience with issues related to insurance, business and commercial, labor and employment, and civil rights litigation. In addition to her practice, Moore serves as the office representative for the Legal Aid Foundation’s Associate’s Campaign, which raises funds to support Colorado Legal Services in providing low-income Coloradans free legal services. Moore is a member of the Colorado Bar, Denver Bar, and Sam Cary Bar Associations.
