We Come Highly Recommended

  • 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.”

    “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!”
