Originally from Canton, Ohio, I moved to Southeast Alaska as a young teenager, with my family. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Education (Secondary Social Studies) from Auburn University and my JD Law degree from The Ohio State University, Moritz College of Law. I was admitted to practice law in Alaska in 1990 and launched my legal career in Anchorage, with one of the oldest law firms in the State. I went on to establish a sole practice in Haines, Alaska which for several years was an affiliated satellite office of a firm in the capital city of Juneau. Relocating to Juneau in 2007, I joined the City and Borough of Juneau Law Department and was appointed Deputy City Attorney in 2010. Serving also as the Chief Legal Officer of Bartlett Regional Hospital from 2016 to 2018, I retired from employment with the municipality in 2019. In 2020, I returned to private practice with the opening of the Law Office of Jane Mores, LLC.
I served on the Alaska Bar Association Ethics Committee from 2002 to 2008, and in 2019 was appointed to the State of Alaska Commission on Judicial Conduct by the Governor. In addition to being on the board of the 58 Degree Innovators Rotary Club of Juneau, I enjoy membership in the Juneau Chamber of Commerce, the Juneau Bar Association and the Alaska Municipal Attorneys Association.
When not engaged in professional activities, I enjoy local league volleyball and softball, recreational golf, gardening, book club, travel and honing my beginner downhill skiing skills. My husband and I also share the joy of having between us 4 adult sons.
