After growing up in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Attorney Hastings graduated from UNC with a degree in political science. He later received his JD from the oldest law school in the country, William & Mary's Marshall-Wythe School of Law. After that, he came home and passed the North Carolina Bar, fulfilling a childhood dream to practice law in the community to which he owes his success. Attorney Hastings has already represented clients in more than ten counties in North Carolina at district, superior, and appellate court levels. It is with his local background and appreciation for what's right that he came up with the firm's mission: to provide high quality and affordable representation at the intersection of law and life.

Dedication to clients
Taylors commitment in what turned out to be an almost 3 year battle, with my board/HOA was 5 star across the board. He helped me settle an issue with a drainage easement. Taking on a board and HOA is no easy task, and Taylor stepped to the plate and hit it out of the park for me. I without hesitation, highly recommend Taylor/Hastings Law if you are thinking about hiring an attorney to represent you.

First lawyer that I can trust
My case was against 2 very large company. I reached out to 20 different potential firm to represent me and only 6 actually give me the time of day. Out of these 6 only one actually understood what I was trying to fight for. That was Taylor. He listens and was not intimidated by who I was going after. He actually come up with the great strategy how to get there. I am extremely happy with his representation and I strongly recommend him. I trust him… If you are looking for a Pitbull that won’t give up…he is your man!

Best in the area!
Taylor is the best in the area! I had a problem with our family business and had a hard time finding someone who could help with our particular issue. Taylor was so understanding and professional, he took the time to explain what options we had and what could be done to tackle the issue. He stayed in contact often and answered all the questions I had promptly. I really feel like he has my back and cares for his clients. Would definitely recommend.

Excellent and helpful.
Hired for a case which involved an area of law which is not often practiced in North Carolina. He was knowledgable and was willing to both spend time understanding my case, investigating the facts of the case and the relevant law, and was able to help with resolving my case. All throughout he was very easy to work with, was willing to listen to my needs and was also able to expertly advise me on my options, even as the case dragged on for several years through no fault of ours. And he was able to resolve my case favorably and in a way which, I believe, will make a difference. I would highly recommend him in the future, and if I personally have any legal issues I need assistance with, he will definitely be the first person I contact.

Top-notch service
My experience with Taylor Hasting and his law firm has been nothing but wonderful. Having to deal with legal issues can be intimidating, but Taylor was fantastic from start to finish. He made me feel validated in my concerns, and provided a top-notch service for a fair price. The whole process was very transparent and professional, with an emphasis placed on clear communication. His dedication to doing what is right speaks volume about his character. Would strongly recommend to a friend.

The Best of the Best
Taylor Hastings went above and beyond when helping me through a very intimidating and stressful issue [regarding underage drinking], by not only providing his legal services but found ways to ease the stress of the overall process as well. He was very considerate, intelligent, and dedicated; I am eternally grateful for his services! I highly recommend Taylor to everyone.
