A top-rated trial attorney with more than 45 years of legal experience, Mr. Taylor focuses his practice primarily on plaintiff personal injury claims and helping his clients obtain the full amount of compensation they deserve for the injuries and losses they suffered as the result of someone else's negligence. In addition, he also handles business litigation involving a wide range of disputes, including issues involving energy and natural resources.

A native of Illinois, Mr. Taylor graduated from the University of Illinois in 1969 and served in the U.S. armed forces. Upon completing his service, he attended Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 1973.

He also handles cases throughout Canada and the Caribbean.

Along with maintaining a successful legal practice, Mr. Taylor supports his local community through his involvement with various philanthropic efforts. He is the founder of The Miracle Ride Foundation and the Indianapolis Air Show, and he serves as president for The Miracle Ride Foundation. Through his efforts, he has helped raise almost $6 million for the Riley Hospital for Children. He also serves on the board of The Athenaeum Foundation as well as general counsel for ABATE of Indiana, ABATE of Illinois and ABATE of Ohio.
