District Court Judge Becky Moore Gets Retirement

Legal dignitaries from across the state joined local judges and attorneys to celebrate the retirement of General District Court Chief Judge Becky J. Moore. She stepped down February 1 following 22 years on the bench. The retirement luncheon was held on January 31 at Belle Haven Country Club. It was part sentimental send-off and part comedic roast as several speakers recounted anecdotes from Moore’s legal career.

According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Moore’s former law partner, Drew Carroll, served as emcee and stand-up comic and was followed by several speakers who showed a similar flair for comedy, including Judge Constance Frugale, who titled her remarks “laughing all the way.” “I have never laughed harder or had more fun than with my friend Beck,” said Frugale, who introduced Moore to her husband Bob Coulter and is godmother to Moore’s daughters Katie and Christie. “We have been together in Alexandria as friends, as practicing attorneys then later as judges. We always helped each other in everything in life.”

As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Moore, a graduate of the University of Richmond School of Law, was the last to speak and began by thanking her team of fellow judges and clerks. “We are lucky to live in Alexandria, where we have such great lawyers and law enforcement officials,” Moore said. “We are all part of a team and I am so lucky to have worked with you.” Moore went on to thank Frugale, her best friend, who “makes even the mundane a Seinfeldian adventure,” before ending on a serious note. “I worked every day to be fair and respectful to every person coming into the courtroom,” Moore said. “I am so very grateful for the career I have had and am humbled by the lifelong friendships I have gained.”
