Hello!

I’m Lynnelle Loke Moore.  Just joined The Community.  

  1. I’m an elder law attorney in San Antonio, Texas but often I’m not really in San Atnonio because my significant other lives in Colorado and I have a remote practice (mostly) and it is prettier in Colorado (and Jamie is there, too :)
  2. I am passionate about helping people navigate our totally ****ed-up health care system in the US.  Texas is so stingy with benefits, and the rules are so complicated, and they change every year.  No ordinary person can do it alone!  Really, I am passionate about fixing the health care system, but until it’s fixed, I’ll just keep plugging away as an elder law attorney.
  3. I love new adventures.  I dabble in snow skiing, scuba, bicycling, motor cycle riding, hiking, and mountain climbing.  I always have a trip to look forward to and a goal for the trip.
  4. Okay, that’s it.  I have to work.  I only have 3 things!

Hello colleagues!

First, let me say that I think this forum is a fantastic addition to the value Clio provides. 

  1. I’m a Serb from Croatia that immigrated to Chicago at the outset of the war in Yugoslavia in the 90’s, and now live in the Indianapolis area with my spouse.
  2. I’m a practicing attorney for a little over a year now and am licensed in D.C., Illinois, and Indiana.
  3. I received my B.A. in Political Science from DePaul University in Chicago and my J.D. from Indiana University McKinney in Indianapolis, where I was selected by my classmates to be the commencement speaker for the full-time J.D. class. (Humble brag because I’ve never received a more meaningful honor in my life)
  4. I hung out my shingle a few months ago after leaving a well-known regional mid-size firm because I am interested in innovating the practice of law and the way attorneys are perceived.
  5. I’m a general practice attorney at the moment--which means I need to take whatever I can get for now to pay the bills--but my three-year plan as I grow my practice is to concentrate on Blockchain & Crypto Law, which is a passion of mine because I believe blockchain and crypto will allow us to create a world of genuine fairness, justice, and equality.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet others in the legal industry, learn from all of you (because I sure could use all the tips and guidance I can get right now), and hopefully, on occasion be able to share some of my knowledge that I have acquired over the years. :slight_smile:

Best,

Aleks Djuricic
