Philip T. Taylor

As the proud son of school teachers, I was instilled with a diligent work ethic and the appreciation for a hard-earned dollar.  It is with that foundation that all engagements are pursued, by providing clients with studious and affordable representation.  Having spent the past decade litigating high-stakes complex commercial actions, I am now excited to be devoting my practice to helping clients find personalized solutions to their everyday legal issues.  Presented is a sample of some of the cases in which I have been involved over the past ten years:
