Law Office of James M. Taylor
66 West Ramsey Street
Banning, CA 92220

My office is dedicated to the practice of Criminal Law, more specifically, Criminal Defense. I have been practicing law for almost two decades and have had successfully defended my clients accused of serious crimes over the course of my legal career. I have successfully represented many clients in several Felony Jury Trials and have negotiated plea bargains that have been in the best interests for my clients. Of most notoriety is the “Banning 13” case. The “Banning 13” was the largest murder prosecution in Riverside County History. My client was looking at Life Without the Possibility of Parole (LWOP) and unfortunately, my client gave three (3) separate recorded confessions to the police regarding the incident and subsequently admitting to his participation and knowledge. Even though the confessions were played to the jury, I was successful in arguing to the jury that the so called confessions were merely coerced statements and the jury agreed. I acquired Not Guilty Verdicts for my client and my client is now back with his wife and children.
