Nicole R. Taylor

Nicole oversees our transaction and governmental entities practice.  She also participates in our litigation group.  Nicole is an industry expert in Texas real estate law and public housing law.

Why She Cares

Nicole believes that everyone should have equal access to quality legal representation.  Her father died in a horrible traffic accident when she was only two years old.  He was struck by a commercial trucking company’s driver.  Her grandparents were poor and unsophisticated in legal matters.  

The system should have protected them from the corruptible coercion of the trucking company’s insurance company and legal counsel.  A healthy, strong 26-year-old’s life was only worth $5,000 in 1971.  

Nicole's 'why' is for him and her family.  Her mission is to use her knowlege and will to fight and make sure this atrocity never happens again.

If Nicole isn’t with her family or serving the Sorority, she is a fanatical fan of Clemson football and anything related to collegiate football, especially when it’s the ACC vs. the SEC.
