Attorney | Phoenix, AZ
I grew up on a farm in Missouri. My father was a lawyer but we raised cattle, too. Growing up on a farm taught me the values of hard work and responsibility. It also gave me a deep respect for the men and women of this country that get up early every morning and build, make, produce and deliver the many goods and services that we need.
I followed in my father’s footsteps and became an attorney. For nearly 30 years, I've represented people before the state and federal courts of both Arizona and Nevada. Yet representing injured workers before the Industrial Commission of Arizona is, without doubt, the most gratifying and personally satisfying work I've ever done. Helping injured workers put their lives back together after an industrial accident makes me feel like I make a positive difference in the world around me.
Taylor and Associates is the ideal place to make a difference. It's one of the oldest and largest firms to focus on helping injured people in the state. The attorneys and staff here have many, many years of experience. We care about helping people and work hard to maximize the value and benefit for our clients.
Outside of work, I’m pretty boring. My time is devoted to my family. I have a beautiful wife of more than 25 years and three terrific kids. My oldest lives in Oklahoma where she works in the medical field. I miss her a lot. My son serves in the United States Navy, Submarine Service. My heart bursts with pride when I think of him. My youngest is still in high school. She’s a “tough as nails” athlete, a tomboy through and through, and a pretty darn good fisherman—er, “fisherwoman.” Holy smoke – she's a pistol!
