Originally from San Diego, Taylor spent the latter part of his childhood in the San Francisco Bay Area. He quickly returned, however, earning his bachelorâ€™s from San Diego State University and his Juris Doctorate from California Western School of Law. After law school, Taylor spent the early part of his legal career at the San Diego Public Defenderâ€™s Office, where he completed over 50 jury trials; everything from misdemeanors to homicides. After over five years in the criminal arena, Taylor decided it was time to fight for plaintiffs in civil court. When Taylor is not in the courtroom, heâ€™s playing his guitar and piano, travelling, backpacking, and playing baseball.
