Lawyer and Founder
While I was originally called to the bar in Ontario, my legal career in B.C. began when I was offered a position at Microtel Ltd. (a subsidiary of B.C. Tel) as Manager of Contracts. While at Microtel I studied for admission to the B.C. Bar and was called in 1988.
I was then offered a position as V.P. Contracts at Epic Data which was followed with positions at EBCO Industries.
In 1990 I entered private practice, as a sole practitioner. Realizing the need to market and promote my legal services I authored various newspaper columns in several publications throughout the Fraser Valley, under the name “Under Appeal”. These columns ran consistently for over ten (10) years with my picture appearing next to the column wearing my trademark fedora. As a result, I became known throughout the lower mainland of B.C. as the, “lawyer with the hat”.
Looking to further increase my profile, I then hosted and produced a live call-in program with selected guests, also known as Under Appeal, which ran for over ten (10) years on various cable T.V. networks broadcast throughout the lower mainland.
I continued to practice, primarily family law, as a sole practitioner, until I received a random call from someone named Aman Oberoi looking to article with me. That call, and Aman’s subsequent involvement as my first associate, with this addition of subsequent associates has led to the creation of the Taylor Law Group, a full-service law firm.
Should you have any law related questions, I invite you to call and arrange a consultation with me, or one of my extremely capable associates.
