Taylor Hayes serves as a key member of Swier Law Firm's Business & Corporate Law Practice Group.
In today's complex business environment, you need an attorney who is both pragmatic and visionary. Pragmatism saves you time and money. Vision gives you a greater sense of what’s possible for your business. In his representation of clients, Taylor strikes the right balance between pragmatism and vision. Offering clients an earnest demeanor and no-nonsense attitude, he takes it upon himself to understand not only your business goals but your industry as well. If it's important to you, it's important to Taylor.
Taylor’s diverse legal background provides a broad perspective and the ability to identify problems before they materialize. Prior to joining Swier Law Firm, he worked in immigration, foreclosure, and criminal defense among other areas. Taylor likes to practice “preventive lawyering” which means proactively avoiding problems rather than reacting to problems after they occur.
