Adam Taylor has over 23 years of trial practice and complex evidentiary hearings regarding domestic relationship matters.

We always strive to work quickly to resolve our client’s cases through settlement, but when necessary, we are prepared to litigate; prepare for trial and thoroughly present all witness testimony and evidence to the court in a powerful, persuasive manner.

Complex Problem Solving

In addition to our own experienced attorneys, we have a network of qualified experts including forensic accountants, business/property valuation experts, private investigators, vocational experts, appraisers, real estate brokers, minor’s counsel and child custody evaluators that we can use in your case to get the best results.

Reasonable Fees

We utilize a team approach, using paralegals, associates and senior attorneys to provide services that ensure that our clients receive the very best service in a cost-effective way.

Open Communication

We maintain open lines of communication with our clients so that they have access to our firm whenever necessary (i.e. after hours) and are always up to date on the progress of their case. Clients are able to contact our staff and attorneys via cell phone, text, and email. Communications are generally returned immediately as the firm knows the need for swift feedback during these emotionally trying times.
