AGGRESSIVE & KNOWLEDGEABLE LEGAL GUIDANCE

The founding member of the firm, attorney Skyler A. Taylor, divides his practice between criminal law and personal injury claims, including motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice cases and workers compensation claims.

As a criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Taylor has enjoyed significant success defending clients accused of drunk driving, marijuana possession and theft. In fact, not only has he been able to get his clients reduced criminal charges , but he has obtained outright dismissals and trial victories as well. Additionally, he has gone to great lengths to further bolster his criminal law qualifications by attending seminars and training sessions, including courses focusing on field sobriety testing, personal injury law, and jury trial techniques.

However, Mr. Taylor's success goes beyond the realm of criminal law. He has recovered damages in civil cases totaling seven figures for his clients.

Mr. Taylor was also named to the 2014 and 2015 Georgia Rising Stars list. This is a particularly important distinction given that no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys in the state receive this honor.

Great support to us in a difficult situaion
Skyler took the time to give us all of the information needed to determine whether or not we needed an attorney. Once we hired him he was educational and supportive and got a better resolution than we could have gotten on our own. I would highly we omen him.

Attorney Who Truly Cares
Mr. Taylor is the best attorney you can find. He works hard and really does everything he can to help you as a client. He helped me out during my traffic incident case and we received the best possible outcome. Passing him up as your attorney would be a huge mistake. He is knowledgeable, kind, and always does what he feels is best for you. Honesty and integrity are important qualities to find in a defense attorney and Mr. Taylor delivers 100%.

Not guilty
I had two criminal cases in the past four years and hired Mr. Taylor based only from a referral. He was swift and on point with highly advanced education in criminal law and made me feel very comfortable. I’d hire him before anyone else. He’s a winner. Thanks for all your hard work.

Skyler gets results
I have used Skyler several times now and he always comes through for me with the results I need. He and his staff are professional and easy to reach and communicate with. Skyler has an excellent relationship and rapport with the courts in his area and can help you in any situation where you need legal counsel or representation for any criminal or civil matters. Competitive and easy payments. Skyler will handle your business. Only attorney that I'll ever call.

I needed Skyler A. Taylor and he helped any way he could. Not just with my criminal cases, but also legal advice! I’m 21 and have been using his legal expertise since I was 18. I highly recommend Mr. Taylor to everyone. I even recommended him to my best friend for legal advice and it helped! Smart man and the best around! Thank you so much Skyler, for everything!

An attorney that cares!
If you find yourself in need of an attorney, look no further he's the one! I felt hopeless calling other local attorneys, then I called Skyler. He is direct and genuinely seems to care. Having a criminal case can be daunting, however, be patient and let him work his magic. Skyler has your best interest in mind and will get the best result for your case as he did mine!

Calm and smart
Some friends introduced me to Mr Taylor when I was in need of legal representation. I found him to be very knowledgeable. From my first encounter with him to the last court appearance, he treated me with dignity and respect, doing his best to represent me. I warmly recommend him to anyone in need of a defense lawyer.

Professional & Caring Attorney
From the minute I met Skyler for a consultation, to hiring, case review, conversations, and my bench trial I felt cared for and that the best legal expert was on my side. Skyler is a great balance of professional and personable, my case ended with a great outcome and I know this was due to his experience and positive attitude. I highly recommend his legal services.

A MAGNIFICENT LAWYER
Mr. Taylor went above and beyond the call of duty as a defender of the law for those, that can't be heard don't know how to get heard to prove they are innocent. In a place where they are silenced. He works hard, He's knowledgeable, and every part of my case was very important to him. He answered all my questions, and listened to my story.. I don't know how he do it? dividing his time between fighting for peoples rights and time spent with his own family. But he has a professional gift and I am a witness that he does not waste that opportunity to give that first time last time impression.. I'm glad my case was dismissed DUI (not guilty) improper Lane change (not Guilty) Improper u turn (not Guilty). they found me guilty on speeding but that's the way it is .. you won't be let down if you allow Mr. Taylor to hear your story and see what ways Mr. Taylor may be able to help you convince a system according to the rights in the law you already have that don't hear you as a natural breathing person ..The best representative for our family he saved us from a total disaster.... May the Most High Bless him and his family...

There in a time of need
When our 20 year old son was ticked with a minor in possession violation we contacted Skyler to represent him. We knew there were some unusual circumstances surrounding this and wanted to make sure our son was fairly represented. Skyler went above and beyond. He communicated very clearly the issues, explained the possible outcomes, and provided very competent representation. Ultimately the case was dismissed due to an illegal search. Our son has learned a valuable lesson through this process and we were happy to have Skyler on our side.

Legal review
I called Skyler for help in Fulton county traffic court. He was always very responsive to every call and showed up early to court and was so helpful to get case dismissed with minimum fees. I would highly recommend him to help with any case you may need legal help. He is so knowledgeable in all legal aspects. He answered all my questions very quickly.

Very helpful!
Skyler Taylor kept me well informed on my case and told me exactly what to do in order to get the best case scenario. He went above and beyond and I was very pleased with his work. It was my third MIP and I received the same amount of community service and a lesser fine than before. Thank you Skyler Taylor for your hard work!

Works For You
Mr. Taylor worked with the attorneys on the other side of my case to reach the most acceptable compromise in my case. He was able to make them understand my situation and have my penalties reduced to the best possible outcome for myself. His relationship with the prosecutors certainly enabled a better outcome for me for an unpleasant situation. I would recommend him highly for his best interests in his client.

Great Lawyer
We hired Skyler to help with some minor charges that many college students get caught up in. He realized more than us that we didn't really need an attorney, but we were scared, so he agreed to be there for us. He charged very little (we appreciated that very much) and was with us every step of the way. Thanks so much, Mr. Taylor. You really put us at ease. Priceless!

Skyler Taylor was very professional. He took care of my legal issue in a timely manner and got my case dismissed. I was very satisfied with his service.

Best DUI Attorney - Works hard for his clients!
I used Skyler for DUI, FML, and Speeding violatons I encounterd around Christmas time. He worked hard to work out a plea deal for me, and I was able to keep my license and had little impact to my life. He made it as painless as it could be. He's a great individual, and a great attorney.
