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.

We Come Highly Recommended

  • Highly recommend Taylor and Waldrop!

    “From day 1 of my domestic violence discrepancy Attorney Clyde Taylor gave me an in depth sense of peace. He was very professional and fought hard to prove my innocence. He was very thorough and had all the bases covered for me. I was in a tough spot and didn't know what to do or how to handle things. He provided me with excellent service and ensure my peace of mind about how things were going to play out. I cant begin to explain my gratitude for his hard work and for how much he cared about my case. Highly recommend Taylor and Waldrop!”

    Former Client

  • I highly recommend this attorney for any legal issues you may have.

    “I highly recommend this attorney for any legal issues you may have. They are reasonably priced, lower then most and very personable. I spoke to quite a few attorneys before choosing this attorney. When I 1st spoke to Mr. Taylor I knew he was the attorney I wanted to hire. He spent time talking to me about my case before asking me for money, he was very personable and made me feel so much better about my case. After hiring him, the law firm responded quickly with any questions and always explained things thoroughly without making me feel like I was taking to much of their time. The biggest thing I appreciate is how comfortable Taylor made me feel from the very 1st initial conversation. They are amazing and we're lower priced then most attorneys. Thank you Taylor!!!””

    Ali

  • The first time I really got some professional representation!

    “I retained MR. Waldrop for a case I was having trouble with. Ill say it was money well spent. He went above and beyond his duties. He was available most of the time to answer any questions, and above all, he proved that he had my best interests at heart. I've went through the ringer with bad lawyers. This was the first time I really got some professional representation. Having a good lawyer makes all the difference. The worst part about legal issues is not having peace of mind during uncertain times. Having MR. Waldrop on my case made all the difference. It was such a nice feeling to know that these guys had my back. He delivered with impressive results, and always kept his word. I highly recommend this firm to anyone needing legal representation. 10/10.”
