Dylan Taylor has spent the last thirteen years fighting to protect the rights of the People in Salinas and the larger Monterey Bay area. A third generation Californian, Mr. Taylor was raised in a legal culture where equality and justice were paramount. His father, now a retired Superior Court Judge of over 30 years, was a Legal Services attorney for a decade before being appointed to the Bench. It was in this environment that Mr. Taylor first came to understand the importance of zealous representation, justice for the under-represented, and fighting against what can seem overwhelming odds.
Mr. Taylor spent two years studying at the University of California, Riverside, before transferring to the University of California, Davis. There he achieved a Bachelors’ of Arts degree in Literature. He continued his studies afterwards, becoming a Masters’ Candidate at Sonoma State University.
Substituting literature for law books, Mr. Taylor travelled to the State’s capitol to attend the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law. While obtaining his Doctorate, he put into practice the core values he had been raised on by clerking with both Legal Services of Northern California and the Office of the Federal Defender. As chief law clerk at the Federal Defender, Mr. Taylor represented individuals charged with crimes on federal lands as well as on military installations. It was in this role that Mr. Taylor’s passion for advocacy and justice burned brighter than ever. He then graduated with Honors, earning membership in the prestigious Traynor Society for academic excellence. He also completed and was awarded a Criminal Justice Concentration.
While in Monterey County, Mr. Taylor has represented thousands of clients. He has appeared before every Judge in the criminal courts and has done battle against every District Attorney in the County. He thrives in the legal battle field and has spent countless hours litigating and defending the rights of the accused.
