Meet the Team


After serving as an appellate litigator in VA’s Office of the General Counsel, Appellate Litigation Division, in Washington D.C., Mr. Bergmann founded Bergmann & Moore, LLC in 2004. He currently supervises the firm’s appellate practice and has successfully represented over 3000 Veterans before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (CAVC).


Mr. Bergmann was the president of the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims Bar Association from 2010-2011, and served on its Board of Governors from 2009 to 2012. He was also a member of the Court’s Rules Advisory Committee, and continues to serve on the Court’s Admission and Practice Committee. He is a frequent lecturer on Veterans’ law issues involving disability claims.


Mr. Bergmann graduated from Andrews University (Berrien Springs, Michigan), in 1994, and Indiana University School of Law in 1999. He is licensed to practice law in Maryland (1999) and the District of Columbia (2000). He currently practices before the United States Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (2001) and United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (2005).


Joe Moore worked as an attorney for VA’s Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA) in Washington, D.C. from 1996 to 1999, when he left VA to start his own law practice representing Veterans.  In 2004 he founded Bergmann & Moore, LLC with Glenn Bergmann. Although Bergmann & Moore is one of the biggest law firms in the country which only represents Veterans and their families before and against VA, Mr. Moore personally represents and oversees the work done on behalf of every Bergmann & Moore client with a case before VA. 


Mr. Moore has served on the Board of Directors for the National Organization of Veterans’ Advocates (NOVA), a non-profit association of more than 500 attorneys who represent Veterans, since 2007, and he currently serves as NOVA’s Vice-President.  He has presented on numerous topics related to VA law over the years, and often is called to meet with decision-makers in Congress and in the Department of Veterans Affairs regarding Veterans’ benefits issues. 


Mr. Moore has been interviewed about Veterans’ benefits issues by such publications as the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the Austin Statesman, and the Baltimore Sun, and he has appeared on ABC Nightly News and on BBC International speaking about Veterans’ benefits issues.


Mr. Moore graduated from Saint John’s University (Collegeville, Minnesota) in 1992 with a double major in English and Theology, and he graduated from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1995.
