I started Taylor Trial Consulting to offer the most personal and customized approach to your trial consulting needs. I look at your case from the juror's perspective, listening to jurors as well as measuring and examining their experiences and attitudes. I care about your case and give honest feedback based on my experience and research findings. Understanding your case and shaping the most credible, compelling story of your case is my goal.
