The legal system can be confusing and slow-moving. Often, those injured feel as though the deck is stacked against them. Attorney Jaeson L. Taylor has made it his mission to help his clients through the difficulties that they face while trying to navigate the muddy waters of the litigation process.
For more than a decade, Jaeson has fought for the rights of workers and their spouses injured as a result of exposures to toxic substances, such as asbestos and silica. His clients have included everyone from steel and autoworkers to police, firefighters, and teachers. Jaeson has successfully fought major international corporations and insurance companies, obtaining many large value judgments and settlements on behalf of his clients.
Having successfully tried more than 60 workers compensation and products liability cases to jury verdict, his presence in the courtroom shows the knowledge he has gained through his years of experience. As a result of his reputation as a top litigator, Jaeson’s peers have twice voted him a Super Lawyer’s Rising Star, an honor given to the top 5% of lawyers in the state.
As proud as he is of his accomplishments in the courtroom, Jaeson is more proud of the relationships he has built with his clients throughout his career, “I am proud that many of my clients consider me ‘part of the family.’ I have been there at the lowest point in their lives, after having lost a loved one, and I have always made it my mission to put their needs first.” That mission has led Jaeson to where he is now, fighting for the rights of injured workers.
Prior to starting his own firm, Jaeson was a Partner at a major asbestos litigation firm. Prior to that, his first job out of law school was in the Tax and Legal Services Department of one of the largest personal services and consulting firms in the world.
