  • A family member of client reached out to counsel for assistance on a criminal offense. Outcome was reached that was satisfying for all.

    We are extremely happy with Ms. Thayer's legal representation. She was very professional, compassionate, organized, clear, and--most importantly--effective. Her preparation of evidence before the trial and her negotiations with the prosecutor produced the result we hoped for. I would highly recommend Ms. Thayer's services.

  • Successful dangerous dog trial

    Gretchen- We can not tell you how appreciative we are of your efforts in successfully defending us.  Your attention to detail, copious note taking, and excellent cross examination skills brought the truth of the matter to light.  It was quite clear that the plaintiff had many holes in their story and you made sure they were all duly noted.  Your professional approach and court room demeanor were flawless in defending our case.  The stress that we felt in the months leading up to this case were completely relieved when we walked out of the courthouse last Tuesday.  If any of our friends or colleagues finds themselves in need of an attorney in your specialty, we will highly recommend you and Taylor Law Company!

  • Gretchen believed. Gretchen's resourceful. Gretchen communicated. Gretchen is good with detail. Gretchen's cool under pressure. Gretchen's adaptive. I was found NOT guilty of DWI.

    I hired Gretchen on appeal after being convicted on a DUI charge in District Court.  Why:  Gretchen Believed: After explaining the case details. She was excited about all the opportunities my case provided to obtain a dismissal or not guilty verdict. We encountered several obstacles with logistics and evidence, but she never seem discouraged; or waned in our ability to win.  Gretchen's Resourceful: As an asthmatic, I needed a medical expert to provide credible testimony of the challenges asthmatics can sometimes face providing breath samples. She was able to identify and retain an expert in less than 10 days; whereas my withdrawing attorney initially opted not to and later could not find one with 90 days time.  Gretchen Communicated: Clearly, concretely, and regularly about what needed to be done, by who and when. Between Gretchen, the medical expert and I, it felt like I was a member of my own "high-power legal team." We all had our part to play, not only in trial, but research and preparation. The more and better tools we placed in her arsenal, the more dynamic her defense.  Gretchen is good with detail: She understands and/can quickly learn great detail. She demonstrated command of breath testing machinery, variances between devices and limitations. Gretchen was able to draw out uncertainty and contradiction in the officer's testimony; while also spotlighting the officer attestations to behaviors the officer testified I demonstrated properly.  Gretchen's Cool Under Pressure: We drew a prosecution friendly judge who was very "generous" to the prosecution on objections, frequently rushed ; who, at the end, effectively pleaded for the prosecution to give him case law that would allow him to convict beyond the statute both the prosecution and defense agreed was applicable. Gretchen was able to use the judge's zeal for throwing out testimony or sustaining objections against defense witnesses against the prosecution’s witnesses; in one case totally eliminating one witness’s ability to testify all together (the officer was dismissed prior to answering a single question about the case).  Gretchen's Adaptive: Gretchen was able to take the feedback I provided during the trial of the officer's testimony and integrate it into her cross to further tease out questionable testimony.  Bottom Line: Gretchen Argued The Case That I Was Totally Satisfied, Regardless of the Verdict.  nevertheless . . . the verdict was: NOT GUILTY
