About Me

Born and raised in Houston, Anne graduated from Rice University in 1997
and attended the University of Kentucky for law school.  She became
licensed to practice law in Texas in 2002 and in Louisiana in 2005.


 


            
Currently, Anne represents foreign and US citizens in the areas of: 
immigration, criminal defense and appeals, and family law.  Anne also
helps people form businesses and resolve disputes that may arise in
such. 


 


             Each of Anne’s  clients is valued, and she works with them to get the best results for them, in the most cost-effective manner.  


 


            
Anne began her career as a commercial insurance broker with the Natural
Resources division of Aon Risk Services in Houston.   Her job included
identifying sources of potential liability for large and small offshore
and onshore energy companies.  She helped procure insurance policies to
cover those risks, and assisted with first and third-party property and
casualty claims.   She soon began working for a top-flight,
international law firm specializing in complex commercial insurance
litigation in the energy sector.


 


            
In 2006, Anne opened the law offices of Kennedy & Taylor, with
Alexzandra Taylor, offering advice regarding both criminal and civil law
to a variety of clients.   In 2008, Alex and her family moved to
Washington DC, and Anne expanded her practice, offering clients
personalized service as a sole practitioner.


 


Anne
is married, lives in the historic Houston Heights area of Houston, and
she and her husband greatly enjoy traveling, tennis, and scuba diving.
