Juvenile Criminal Defense

  • Growing up is all about learning—learning right from wrong, trying new things, making mistakes. Sometimes the mistakes young people make are serious enough to ruin their future. The attorneys at Taylor Law Company work hard for their young clients. We realize that we can be the safety net that can save them—that can prevent the promise of a happy future from being dashed to bits. Sometimes a juvenile makes a mistake all on their own and sometimes they are simply drawn into a “bad crowd”.  Whether the juvenile is charged with underage possession of tobacco or alcohol, possession of firearms or drugs at school, or a violent crime such as arson or robbery, call us. We’ll fight to keep that mistake from preventing your juvenile from being a success down the road.

Federal Criminal Defense

  • If you are charged with a federal crime, you need some help. From drug, fraud, or weapons charges to DUI or reckless driving on federal property, you need an attorney who knows her way around federal court. If you get a lawyer who isn’t knowledgeable about the federal criminal justice system, you’re taking a big risk. Gretchen Taylor, the founder of Taylor Law Company, was a Federal Public Defender from 2002 to 2008.  Ms. Taylor has defended all types of criminal offenses in the federal court.  With her experience, dedication, and compassion she can fight for you while making sure you understand the process.  Ms. Taylor always strives to get the best result possible for her client.

    Now, who do you want defending you?
