  • I would absolutely recommend him to anyone for any legal service he offers.

    “This was my first time ever having legal trouble. It was very challenging at times but from the first conversation, I felt like Bradley spoke with me more as a friend than an attorney. He was very thorough and always made sure I understood exactly what was happening every step of the way. There was a point when my license was erroneously suspended due to a mistake at the court house and I could've been falsely arrested. That error was quickly noticed by Bradley and his staff thanks to their incredible diligence. I cannot thank this man enough for all that he has done for me. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone for any legal service he offers. Thank you Bradley.”

  • 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.”
