Matthew Taylor is a seasoned attorney who brings a wealth of experience
to his practice of family law. After working for years as a civil defense
litigator at a top Seattle law firm, Matt chose to change course and focus
his practice exclusively on family law.
“People involved in divorce and family law cases are called on to
make tough decisions about finances and parenting at a time when they
are often at their most vulnerable,” says Matt. “Guiding my
clients through this difficult process is very rewarding to me.”
Having gone through divorce himself, Matt understands the anxiety and confusion
faced by his clients when they come to him for legal counsel.
Matt aims to help clients avoid needless escalation of an already difficult
process. He counsels his clients with frank and compassionate advice about
the best way to achieve their goals and bring the case to resolution.
“I take my client’s issues at stake, and my role as their advocate,
very seriously. My clients will know I exhausted every possible legal
avenue with maximum effort on their behalf.”
Matt represents clients in Tacoma, Pierce County, and King County in a
wide variety of family law cases and is also experienced in appellate
law, LGBT family law, and UCCJEA cases. He’s a skillful litigator
and recently helped co-author the Lexis Family Law Practice Handbook section
on spousal maintenance.
Matt stays busy outside of work with his own family. He’s a parent
of two children and enjoys playing video games with his kids, even when
they question their dad’s skill level.
