What I like best about my job

I like hearing from clients after their case is over and hearing that I really helped them get back on their feet and that they appreciated my guidance and support through a difficult period of time. I’ll get emails or thank you cards or reviews from clients that helps me realize the effort and thought that I put into my work is truly appreciated, and that makes my job worthwhile. 

Client Testimonials

“Taylor walked us through every step of the way. We had a flat rate for the bankruptcy and it didn’t change. He kept us informed the whole way, didn’t mind my “stupid” questions. He was there during the one hearing we had to attend and then he handled the rest. No drama, just tells it like it is.”

“I hired Mr. King to reopen my Chapter 7 case that was discharged 3 years ago. My now ex wife wanted to include a debt to her family member that was discharged as part of our divorce agreement. He was recommended by 2 different attorneys and I’m glad I went with him. He got right to work and it was settled in my favor in a matter of weeks. I’d highly recommend him. He did an awesome job!”

“In our industry, we deal with a lot of attorneys. Unfortunately, when our business went through a downturn that affected our personal finances, we were forced to find a Chapter 11 lawyer. After some research and referrals, we decided on working with Taylor King, and we quickly realized that we had made the right decision…”
