Excellent Divorce Attorney!
I hired Mr. Taylor after reading his excellent reviews on many different sites. My divorce was high stress and difficult the whole way through. Mr. Taylor definitely made the process easier and was able to calm my fears with his knowledge of the laws and his guidance. The outcome was better than I had hoped for due to his preparation and perseverance. He was compassionate during the most difficult time in mine and my children’s lives. I highly recommend him and would hire him again if the need arises.

Extremely practical and knowledgeable
Mr. Taylor has been my attorney throughout my initial divorce and the subsequent support and custody adjustments over the last few years. He has always been a very professional and personable lawyer with a very practical approach that has helped empower me to make my decisions with confidence armed with the full knowledge of my options. I recommend him highly. Excellent service!

The right choice for a divorce attorney
If you are looking for an attorney who responds quickly and works hard for your interests, Christoper Taylor is the right choice. At some attorneys you may just be another name/ case, but that is not the case with him. He is very responsive and on top of things. Very thankful that I found him to handle my case.

Helpful, knowledgeable, and caring. Recommended
I contacted Michael Taylor for a consultation regarding my situation. i have been married to my wife for a very long time. I wanted to know what I would be facing if we divorced. He took his time to listen to my story and hear me and gave me what I believe to be excellent information and direction. Thank you Michael
Response from Christopher Taylor May 2, 2022
Thank you for the review. I enjoy helping people with family law issues. It should be noted the reviewer is using my middle name. I go by Chris, but the reviewer may have seen my middle name, Michael, on my Avvo.com profile. This reviewer posted the review after a consultation.

I highly recommend Chris Taylor! He was professional, kind and efficient. He explained the process up front and it all played out exactly as he said it would with no surprises. I wanted a quick settlement and he executed it quicker than I could have imagined. Absolutely no complaints here.

Could not have done it without him
Mr. Taylor struck a superb balance of compassion and commitment right from the beginning. This was an extremely challenging case, and he remained steady and determined straight through to the end. His knowledge of the law is undeniable, and that coupled with his genuine care and concern created an environment in which I felt safe and confident -- not at all an easy task, given the unique circumstances involved. I am certain that not many attorneys could have handled this case, and that even fewer could have steered it to the finish line as quickly and successfully as he did. Everything was done with exceptional attention to detail, and at no point did I question my decision to hire him. The support staff in his office further enhanced the overall sense of calm that I experienced during the most difficult time in my life. While I hope to never require his family law services again, I will not hesitate to contact him if the need arises. I would recommend Mr. Taylor to anyone, but especially to women who are seeking a knowledgable, passionate, professional, and strong presence to lead them through the fire. He is the right person. I am grateful.

No Surprises
Chris was exactly what I expected based on reviews I read when searching for a divorce attorney. His fees were fair and reasonable. He was always very punctual with replies to my questions as they arose throughout the process. He was easy to talk to and he gave me reasonable expectations.

Knowledgeable, kind, but firm legal counsel
Chris Taylor handled my divorce with expert knowledge. He was firm with opposing counsel without letting things escalate into a dogfight. He was able to talk me down when things didn't go my way and help me weigh the pros and cons of the various options given to me in a very practical way. I highly recommend his practice.

Child support and time sharing
Chris Taylor did an excellent job representing me in my child support issues as well as time sharing. He communicated with me well throughout the process and gave reasonable expectations which made the process much easier to deal with. He is experienced and knew which issues were worth pushing for and which were not. I highly recommend.

Extremely Professional, Friendly and Effective Divorce Lawyer
I am very thankful that I hired Mr. Taylor to represent in my complex and probably unique divorce case. Mr. Taylor is very professional, efficient, and knowledgeable family law attorney. He is very responsive and kept me updated at every steps. He provided excellent suggestions and guidance to maneuver through my divorce case. He was very persistent in handling my opposing attorney who was quite unresponsive and eventually settling the divorce case. My Taylor is very friendly and trustworthy and I would recommend anybody who wants legal representation for a family law litigation.

Easy going, friendly and very efficient!
Chris really made my divorce process as easy as can be. I was really eager to get out of my marriage, to the point of neglecting to watch out for myself. He gently pushed me to protect myself while keeping the situation very fair and simple, and the process very quick. He understood my situation very well, made me feel very comfortable, it was like talking to a friend. We even had some good laughs because he is very funny! He even emailed me after the divorce was over, thus after our contract was over, to remind me to handle a few important things that I needed to do. A divorce is very difficult to go through, and I highly recommend Chris to represent you, as he will efficiently and in a very friendly manner solve your case.

Highly Recommended Attorney
I had hired Mr. Taylor via Avvo.com based on the already great reviews and location. I went through a simple no-fault dissolution and the experience was a piece of cake. Mr. Taylor is an exceptional attorney, extremely knowledgeable, and the best part is he is welcoming to speak with. Mr. Taylor answered all my questions during our initial consultation. In an efficient manner, my divorce ended the way I expected it to in a short amount of time. It was a pleasure to work with you Mr. Taylor.
