Certified to Handle Death Penalty Cases

Death Penalty Cases

Death Penalty Criminal Defense Firm in St. Augustine, Florida

Very few criminal defense lawyers in the state of Florida are certified to handle death penalty cases. This area of criminal defense is a very unique and difficult one. Many attorneys are unwilling or are unprepared to take on a case involving the death penalty. The qualifications necessary for this area of law require intense training and dedication. A death penalty defense attorney must have extensive trial experience and must remain certified through continuing legal education on an ongoing basis. He or she must be willing to go up against the toughest prosecutors in federal courts in high-stakes circumstances.

  • It was like I knew him for years. I left that consultation knowing I was with the right attorney.

    “When I first contacted Mr. Taylor, I was about 8 1/2 years into a legal battle with my former wife. The divorce was final in 2013 but my former wife continued to push for more with court appearances and appeals. At my consultation, Mr. Taylor was already as well prepared as I could have hoped for. I honestly felt more at peace about things than I had in years. When we first started talking, I felt he was wanting to get to know me which I believed was very important to him. When we started talking about the case, he shared his thoughts about the history as he saw it, explained what his approach was going to be, and asked me if I was OK with how he wanted to proceed. I appreciated how much time he obviously spent preparing for my consultation and how he wanted to be sure I was comfortable, and confident, in how he wanted to handle the case. The whole time, I never felt I was talking to an attorney and that it was business only. It was like I knew him for years. I left that consultation knowing I was with the right attorney. Within a year, it was over. The only reason it took that long was the time the court took but I was confident it would end once he submitted our response. Mr. Taylor is a great, knowledgeable attorney, that cares about one thing, and that is his clients. Very personable man that made me feel at ease, always communicating everything in ways I could understand and always asking my input. Everything about my experience was awesome, I can never say thanks enough for what this firm did for me. I can't leave out Jess Hardy. She's a great part of this law firm.”
