our history

OUR HISTORY

The firm was originally founded in 1979 by Lawrence Taylor, a former Marine and graduate of the University of California (Berkeley) and the UCLA School of Law. After serving as a Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney, Mr. Taylor was retained by the Attorney General of Montana to conduct an independent grand jury corruption investigation of the state’s Governor. He thereafter was a professor of criminal law at Gonzaga University Law School in Washington, was subsequently appointed by the U.S. government a Fulbright Professor on the Osaka University Faculty of Law in Japan, and finally returned to Los Angeles to begin building what was to become one of the pre-eminent criminal defense law firms in California.

With 44 years of experience, Mr. Taylor is the author of 5 criminal law textbooks and has lectured to criminal defense attorneys at over 200 legal seminars across the country. For 11 of the past 13 years he has been voted by his peers a “Southern California Super Lawyer”, and is today one of fewer than 1% of attorneys in the U.S. to be honored by Martindale-Hubbell with the prestigious AV (“Preeminent”) designation for ethics and ability every year since 1996.
