Following his law school career, Taylor gained professional experience as an analyst in Milwaukee County’s witness protection unit. After this, he served as a Law clerk in Washington County and then an Assistant County Attorney in Steele County from where he handled both adult and juvenile criminal cases. Now in our Municipal Law Group, Taylor has used his legal experience to work with municipalities in their criminal prosecution cases.

In his free time, he enjoys spending time outdoors. In the summer he enjoys golf, running and spending time on the lakes. When the weather is not great, he enjoys reading and watching his favorite sports teams.
