Florence (Flo) Cavagnaro
I moved to Hendersonville, North Carolina in my early teens and graduated from West Henderson High School. I attended Cecil College in Asheville, now known as South College, and obtained a degree in paralegal studies. After graduation I worked for Ingles in Black Mountain in the personnel department researching legal documents to assist the attorney in the completion of pending law suits and was a member of the team that implemented the drug testing policy. This experience prepared me for my next position with Lindsey and Hensley, where I assisted the attorney with personal liability claims. While this was very interesting, it was specialized, and I realized I wanted to work in an office where they handled different areas of law to enhance my experience. I went to work in a law office in Asheville that handled all types of law and stayed with this firm for 16 years.
The experience was priceless and I was saddened when the attorney became ill and semi-retired. I went with a large Asheville firm representing corporations. I quickly realized I needed more diversity and I missed dealing directly with the clients. I was blessed to obtain employment with The Moore Law Office, PLLC, where I knew immediately that I was in the right place. The combination of family law and personal injury is challenging and rewarding. It is good to know that in some small way I can assist those who come through our door.
I currently live in Henderson county and love to spend time with my family and friends, especially my three nephews. I love to walk and find good hiking trails. I have participated in many walks for charity. I am always looking for excuses to practice my baking skills and also enjoy a good book.
I volunteer at my church and was instrumental in developing an e-newsletter that is currently distributed to over 500 parishioners. I also participate in writing and proofreading articles for the newsletter. I am responsible for the collection and distribution of shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, and am currently chairperson for the Research Committee for the Women’s Guild.
