About Taylor

Practice areas

I am originally from Wallingford, Connecticut.  I went to Central Connecticut State University where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice.  

I moved to Massachusetts and began working as a Paralegal at a law firm in Andover, MA.  I immediately found the law to be intriguing and interesting, which motivated me to attend law school.  While attending law school at Massachusetts School of Law, I continued to work as a full-time Paralegal.  I am a partner at Shimer & Dauksewicz, LLC and work with my business partner and fellow colleague, Ellen C. Shimer-McGuire.

Divorce decree
Taylor was amazing. I interviewed with a few attorneys before I found Taylor and right off the start she and I clicked. She accomplished a lot with my case. She is highly professional and a good friend. She is the one you want.

Taylor achieved the desired result in representing me at an unemployment appeal hearing. I would feel completely comfortable hiring her again or referring a friend in need should a legal matter arise.

Taylor did a great job explaining the process of divorce. She was very attentive and the staff was always quick to respond. Even though the process took longer to no fault of Taylor's, I would highly recommend her in a heartbeat!

Discrimination Case
My husband and myself were very pleased with the outcome of our case. We both feel that Taylor was professional and very caring about our situation. She would be the first person I call, should I need legal assistance in the future. We also consider her a friend who helped us win the fight against a former employer.

Expedient, honest and friendly
Atty. Dauksewicz handled my case very professionally. I felt she was able to grasp the root cause of the problem right away and was very clear and very honest about the possible outcomes. I would recommend her with no reservations.

Help under pressure!!
I came to Taylor in what I would call a bit of an emergency! My intentions were to divorce using the Mass. 1A uncontested format. The other side got legal representation and I learned that I had to do likewise or face certain doom. I came in with merely days to spare, legal challenges that I had no idea how to reply to, and a court date scheduled for just a few days away!! She took the time to get the facts, responded to the opposing counsel, got the court date rescheduled and took the needed and appropriate steps to get everything in order and represent me. She has been with me in court and has a very professional approach. She also provided me with expectations of what the timetables and other variables are that have a direct impact on the case. She even gave me some general history of the whats and how long it takes and where I fall in that mix. The point being, that client communication was maintined from the beginning. This is my first experience with a lawyer and i must say that I'm impressed with her tenacity and knowledge of her field. She calls me whever she has something to discuss, replies to emails quickly, digs in and finds information when there's a question and best of all, she's well connected with others in various aspects of the law. To that end, she can get answers to esoteric questions that are of importance (e.g. financial) but perhaps not immediately required for the task at hand.

Excellent Attorney
Taylor represented me for an unemployment hearing. She is an an excellent attorney which is rare to find nowadays. She did a great job, is very knowledgeable and won me my unemployment benefits. I will be referring Taylor to everyone I know!!!

Honest, straight forward and gets the job done right!
I have worked with Attorney Daukswicz off an on for a variety of different issues for the past several years. She has always "kept it real" explained all my options and what to expect every step of the way. From child support, and custody issues, to restraining orders she has helped every step of the way. I have always appreciated her honesty and telling it like it as she doesn't sugar coat the situation, and for me that was always what I wanted. If you're in the right she'll let you know, if you're reaching for something impossible she'll pull you back in and explain what is best. Although having to contact her means somethings happened again, it's great to know she'll take care of it timely, quickly, and appropriately.
