John C. Taylor is one of the most respected personal injury trial lawyers in California. With more than 100 jury trials in diverse fields, his success in the courtroom is underscored by his multi-million dollar verdicts.
John’s areas of expertise include serious personal injury, wrongful death, products liability, civil rights, employees’ rights, insurance bad faith, faulty road design and general negligence.
John has been involved in numerous high-profile cases, including representing the mother of a woman who was killed by Phil Spector, as well as the family of Sherri Rasmussen who was beaten and shot by Los Angeles Police Department police officer Stephanie Lazarus. The case went unsolved for more than 20 years as the LAPD believed it was a botched burglary.
He holds the rank of “Diplomate” in the American Board of Trial Lawyers (ABOTA), a national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges. He has testified as an expert at trial on legal ethics, legal malpractice and insurance bad faith.
John is a graduate of Ohio University and McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific. He began his legal career clerking and trying cases for the Sacramento County Public Defenders’ Office, and then worked as an insurance defense lawyer, becoming the youngest partner ever at his firm.
