Attorney Profile

Kristin Moye serves as the lead attorney for Windrose Law Center PLC. She has practiced law for more than a decade and primarily handles business law and estate planning cases. Ms. Moye is also passionate about helping attorney business owners both with succession planning and running a profitable and ethical law practice. In her quest to help more families create plans for this life and the next, she serves clients in Mesa, Scottsdale, Phoenix, and Peoria.  She also offers appointments in Prescott. 

In 2003, Ms. Moye completed her B.A. at the University of Arizona with a major in history. Later, she completed her law degree at the Phoenix School of Law  and went on to receive her LL.M. from Pepperdine. Since then, she has been admitted to practice in the state of Arizona, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.

Ms. Moye served on law review and has two published articles on estate planning for individuals with special needs as well as about employment law.  She has also written for the Arizona Attorney Magazine with advice for attorney business owners about starting a running a successful law practice. Her professional experience also led to her serving as a professor at the Arizona Summit Law School where she taught Wills and Trusts as well as Legal Research.

  • Windrose Law Center is a boutique law firm committed to helping families and businesses. We provide exceptional services at a reasonable fee.  Rather than being the "jack of all trades" and providing legal services in a great variety of practice areas, Windrose Law Center is exclusively committed to asset protection, legacy planning, estate planning, and business planning.  Kristin Moye has focused on risk management and succession planning issues since 2011. After running her own estate planning and business law firm for several years, founding attorney Kristin Moye began exclusively advising attorneys on the best ways to minimize their risk and create successful businesses. She never lost sight of her passion for estate planning and asset protection as she coached business owners on the best way to develop their succession plan. Friends still continued to approach her to help them answer the question, "What would happen to my family if I did not make it home tonight?" Ms. Moye realized that for too many people, the answer to this question for too many people is that a court would get involved. Probate might ensue. A judge could decide. Kristin expanded her scope of practice to not only help small businesses but to also help individuals and families plan their legacy and protect their assets., About Windrose Law Center, Wills, Trusts, And Estate Plans, 2019
