Taylor was Vice President of the Philosophy Club, a member of Phi Gamma Delta, where Taylor served as Rush Chair and Philanthropy Chair, and was a member of the Order of Omega Honors Fraternity. Despite the Big XII rivalry between Baylor and TCU, Taylor earned his law degree from Baylor University School of Law.
Taylor received many honors at Baylor. He was a member of the Board of Barristers, argued in Washington D.C. for the National Security Law Moot Court Competition, and was a member of the nationally recognized Baylor Law Mock Trial Team.
Taylor began his practice at Provost Umphrey in Beaumont Texas. After five years at Provost Umphrey he became a non-equity partner. Taylor specialized in personal injury law and was co-lead counsel on an 18-wheeler case that resulted in a multimillion-dollar settlement. He was also part of the trial team responsible for obtaining the highest premises liability verdict in Texas for 2018. Thompson coached Beaumont’s Kelly High School Mock Trial Team and served on the board of directors for the Jefferson County Young Lawyers Association.
In 2022, Taylor moved to Houston to work for Daly & Black, where he tried a post-appraisal case in Federal Court in San Antonio. Taylor prevailed and forced the Defendant to pay attorneys’ fees and interest. Taylor loves the Courtroom and is never afraid to try a case.
