Trecia Moore

Senior Counsel

With 14 years at the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), Trecia advises clients on traditional labor and other employment matters.

With a rooted interest in law, shortly after college Trecia accepted a position at the NLRB, enforcing the National Labor Relations Act. Over the course of 14 years with the Board, she managed and investigated more than 1,000 unfair labor practice cases, negotiated the terms of more than 300 pre-trial settlements, and conducted more than 30 representational case hearings. Trecia found herself frequently working alongside NLRB attorneys and outside counsel, which influenced her decision to attend law school.

Upon graduation from law school, labor and employment was a natural practice area for Trecia, and she loves its personal, human element. She thrives on connecting with clients and offering practical guidance, helping employers make not only legal choices, but the most practical choices for their businesses and employees. Much of her practice is devoted to assisting clients in the management of traditional labor relations matters, and she has significant experience with large scale union organizing campaigns and collective bargaining agreements.

Trecia also provides general advice and counsel on a wide variety of employment matters, including handbooks and policies, managing in a union environment, and state and federal employment laws such as the Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Title VII. She has successfully represented clients in arbitration and alternative dispute resolution matters and has provided first chair arbitration counsel to a Fortune 100 company in labor matters across the United States. Trecia also represents clients before the NLRB—where her own experience provides her with great insight into the agency’s decision-making process.

In addition to her inside perspective on agency matters, Trecia is particularly known for her investigative skills and her excellent training sessions covering all aspects of labor and employment law for both clients and their staff. Clients appreciate the confidence she inspires and the practical advice she delivers—Trecia always knows a case backwards and forwards and provides clients with realistic, actionable counsel. She has a true gift for connecting with and relating to clients, communicating the information they need, and ensuring that clients understand the legal vulnerabilities at stake.
