Maggie McCall Moody has practiced law in the Tallahassee Community since 1988. Her experience in private practice includes transaction, civil, family, administrative and appellate law. Today she concentrates her practice in Estate Planning & Marital Law. In addition to her experience in trial and appellate courts, Ms. Moody has substantial governmental expertise, having held positions with the Supreme Court of Florida, the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives through nine regular legislative sessions and seven special sessions. As a Chief Attorney and Counsel Director with the Florida House of Representatives, Ms. Moody assisted the leadership, members and constituents with legal matters in the areas of constitutional law, real property and probate law, family law, the judiciary, state administrative law, juvenile justice and local government and military affairs. During her years with the Florida House of Representatives, Ms. Moody built upon the legal and policy expertise she developed while Staff Director of the Florida Senate Judiciary Committee. In both of these positions she provided staff oversight and expertise in the areas in which she practices today.

Ms. Moody used her knowledge of marital and estate law from her years in private practice extensively in her legislative work. While with the Senate, 59 bills reported out of the committee she staffed including major proposals on child support, residential responsibility for children, professional guardians and adoption. During her tenure in the House more than 600 bills passed through the committees in the council with which she worked including almost every major legislative proposal in the areas of estate and marital law. Ms. Moody published official Legislative Interim Reports on the law and system she utilizes today: Implementation of Article V Cost Shifting, Senate Interim Report 98-32; Utilization of Judicial Resources, Senate Interim Report 98-36 and Adoption, Senate Interim Report 97-P-24 ( Fla. 1991)(Family Courts I). In this decision the court determined that there would be a division in each circuit court dedicated to family cases and set out the first parameters for creating what is now the Unified Family Court (UFC). Unified Family Court is a fully integrated, comprehensive approach to handling all cases involving children and families, while at the same time resolving family disputes in a fair, timely, efficient and cost effective manner. Since 1991, a series of Florida Supreme Court opinions have been instrumental in establishing UFC throughout the state. Ms. Moody had the privilege of working with the court on two subsequent opinions, In re: Report of the Commission on Family Courts, 633 So. 2d 14, 16 ( Fla. 1994)(Family Courts II); In re: Report of the Commission on Family Courts, 646 So. 2d 178, 179 ( Fla. 1994)(Family Courts III) that further defined the family courts she practices in today. Ms. Moody also had the honor of working with the court on the decisions that created the rules that now govern the family court system in Florida: In re Family Rules of Procedure, 663 So.2d 1047 (Fla. 1995)(created the Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure) and In re Family Rules of Procedure, 663 So.2d 1049 (Fla. 1995)(created the Florida Family Law Rules of Procedure Forms).

Before working for the Florida Supreme Court, Ms. Moody practiced in the trial and appellate courts handling matters in administrative, civil and criminal law. Her early appellate work includes seven published opinions, three from the Supreme Court of Florida: Jackson v. Bouton Co., Inc., 630 So.2d 1173 (Fla. 1st DCA 1994) ; Hamlet v.
