Andrew D. Talyor
Almost every day attorney Andrew D. Taylor can be
found in the courtroom zealously advocating for the
rights and interests of his clients.

Mr. Taylor began his legal career working in insurance
defense, which helped him to develop an in-depth
understanding of the tactics insurance companies use
to deny personal injury claims.  Today, he uses this
knowledge to fight corporate wrongdoers and obtain
justice for his injured clients.

On the criminal defense side of his practice, Mr. Taylor
has seen first-hand the far-reaching consequences an
overzealous prosecution can have on innocent accused
parties. When a legal secretary Mr. Taylor worked with
was falsely accused of Accessory to Murder over eight
years ago, he began to truly see the power and might
of the State, and how innocent people are easily caught up in the wide-net of the law. After getting such serious charges dismissed, Mr. Taylor began practicing in criminal courts more frequently. Today, he is in court every single day fighting for the rights of individuals who need help through the system. From his first, successful criminal defense case, he has been an aggressive advocate for clients facing both misdemeanor and felony charges.

Mr. Taylor is admitted to practice law in both Utah and Nevada.
