Margaret Moore was elected Travis County District Attorney on November 8, 2016.
Moore, a fifth generation Texan, is a native of Waco. Her father, Tom Moore, Jr., was District Attorney for McLennan County from 1952-1960, which inspired her to pursue a legal career. She graduated from Richfield High School in 1966.
Moore earned a BBA in Accounting from the University of Texas at Austin in 1970 and a JD from the University of Texas School of Law in 1972. She was licensed to practice law in Texas in 1973.
Moore served as Precinct 3 Travis County Commissioner twice, appointed by the County Judge to serve unexpired terms (1999-1998, 2001-2002). Her public service also includes chairmanship of the Travis County Child Welfare Board and as a Commissioner on the Board of Emergency Services District #9.
Moore is married to Robert L. Oliver, a retired attorney. She is the mother of three children—Annie Meisel, married to Michael Meisel; Mark Oliver, married to Katie Oliver; and Tom, married to Jaime Oliver—and the proud grandmother of four—Sarah and Sadie Meisel, Annie Oliver, and Lyle Oliver.
