Moore Receives ‘Ted Jordan’ Humanitarian Award
The Nashua Bar Association presented Paul S. Moore, a Nashua attorney and Special Justice in the Milford District Court, with the 2007 Edward A. “Ted” Jordan Humanitarian Award during its April 19 meeting.
Ted Jordan, a Nashua attorney known for his friendliness and his community service, died in 2002. The award is given each year to an attorney who exhibits similar qualities of civility, congeniality and camaraderie.
Moore is a graduate of the Northeastern School of Law and has been a member of the NH Bar since 1988. In February of 2007 he received the NH Bar Association’s Distinguished Service to the Public Award. He has been instrumental in forming the Hillsborough County Superior Court Help Desk, a volunteer organization which helps members of the public prepare their paperwork before going into court.
A member of the New England Handicapped Sports Association, Moore received its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2001 for helping the organization integrate the disabled more fully into society and for bringing it from a part-time to a full-time organization.
The New Hampshire National Guard gave its highest civilian medal to Moore for his work in providing support and supplies to troops serving overseas (and to their families) through MooreMart, a program he and his sister created which has garnered awards from both the state and the nation, culminating in recognition from President George W. Bush and the U.S. Department of Defense.
