Attorney Deborah A. Moy

A self-professed “Air Force brat,” Deborah Moy was born in the Philippines and spent her childhood living in Gainesville, Florida (Go Gators!); Dayton, Ohio (Go Reds!); Fairfax, Virginia  (Go ‘Skins!); and Greensboro, North Carolina.  Deborah’s maternal grandmother, Eva Jones, was a sharecropper tobacco farmer in Eastern North Carolina, who raised nine children on her own.  She credits Grandma Jones for instilling in her the importance of strength, hope, and humility, and for the ability to see the positive side of even the most hopeless of difficult situations.

Deborah graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where she earned her Baccalaureate degree in English in 2003.  Throughout her college years and after, Deborah worked in the service industry, as serving the public has always been her passion.  After college, Deborah was employed by General Dynamics as a Technical Editor, translating complex government contracts textual data into laymen’s terms. 

In 2016, Deborah graduated from Elon University School of Law, receiving her Juris Doctorate of Law as a Dean’s Scholar.  While in law school, Deborah served as a student mentor, helped form the Elder Law Society, and was the Notes & Comments Editor for the Elon Law Review.  Notably, Deborah’s student note, “North Carolina’s Public Interest Law and Its Need to Change,” was selected for publication in the eighth edition of the Law Review.
