A Law Firm You Can Trust

Interview With Clyde M. Taylor, JR.

  • What made you want to become a criminal defense attorney? - My middle school PE coaches were law students at the University of Miami and inspired me to become a lawyer.
  • In your opinion, what sets your firm apart from the rest? - We focus on criminal defense, from trials to appeals to post-conviction. We selectively represent clients with non-criminal issues only when we are confident in our ability to provide the service needed without sacrificing our commitment to our existing clients.
  • Why should someone choose to hire you over a public defender? - We are not limited by a set salary for standard work week. Public defenders are overworked and underpaid. We will work after hours and on the weekends to get the job done.
  • What is the first thing you do when you take on a new case? - Review the court file and meet with the client as soon as possible to set ground rules, protect his or her rights, and determine whether investigators or experts will be needed.
  • How do you view your role in the attorney-client relationship? - Legal adviser regarding legal issues and counselor regarding practical realities of day-to-day life for clients and their families.
  • What advice do you most often give your clients & why? - Listen to your lawyer, do not talk to law enforcement without my approval, and do not discuss your case with others (especially fellow inmates and co-defendants).
  • Tell us about a case that you are particularly proud of - Every case that the client gets a fair result.
  • Some say that time is of the essence after an arrest – is this true? - Absolutely.
  • How long have you been representing the criminally accused? - Since 1978—in Federal and State courts all over the Eastern United States.
  • Why should a prospective client choose to work with your firm? - We have the trial and appellate experience to handle all criminal cases. I'm qualified to handle death penalty trials as well as very complex federal trials.
