My name is Christopher “Chris” Taylor and I am a divorce attorney and family law attorney practicing in Jacksonville FL. I also maintain a Taylor Law location in St. Augustine, FL to serve residents of St. Johns County. As a divorce and family law attorney I am committed to providing the highest level of service and focus during your time of need. I serve as both your lawyer and counselor when you are going through divorce and family law issues. Most clients have not dealt with family law issues on a regular basis (or ever), so there is often a lot of stress and uncertainty associated with the process. Since I practice divorce and family law exclusively, I can offer an informed perspective on both the legal and interpersonal issues associated with your case.
The Personalized Chris Taylor Approach to Family Law and Divorce
I work with you to develop an individualized approach to your case. Each case is unique, just like every client is unique. When you hire me, I serve as your point of contact throughout the representation. Unlike many larger firms, your case will not be assigned to a younger attorney or paralegal. When you have a concern, I am there for you as your lawyer. I will know you and the facts of your case when you call, text or e-mail. I limit my caseload and overhead while using technology to streamline my workflow so I can provide you with better and more personalized service.
My Approach to Family Law and Divorce Cases
My practice philosophy is to first seek amicable resolution without over litigating cases. Typically cases that settle early cost less and preserve working relationships between the parties when children are involved. While my philosophy is grounded in doing what is best for the client and children through the pursuit of an amicable resolution, I am also prepared to take your case to trial when necessary.
I try several cases a year, and I attend numerous continuing legal classes including trial workshops to be ready when trial is necessary.
What does this mean for you in case your divorce goes to trial?
It means I am a strong attorney who is ready to effectively advocate when a case goes to trial. Being ready to try cases helps in mediation and settlement discussion as well. By seeing firsthand how area family judges apply the law to the facts of the case, I am better able to advise clients on the likely outcomes if a case goes to trial.
