    I have worked with Ed Taylor in the past and have referred clients to him. Ed is a superlative lawyer, very skilled in written and oral advocacy, knowledgeable and practical. He has the ability and capacity to work in extremely stressful conditions, including injunctions, and maintain his composure and skills.
