James Taylor

As a former VW automotive technician, I achieved the distinction of being the Youngest Volkswagen Master Technician in Volkswagen history before my life changed due to the actions of a drunk driver; I could no longer work in my profession due to career ending injuries.

I went to college, Cal Poly Pomona and then to Law School, Western State COL, and I was fortunate enough to pass the California State Bar Exam the first time. I opened the doors to my office in September of 2000 and they have been open ever since. 

I am a criminal defense attorney through and through. I have been practicing law for over 22 years. During that time, I have helped thousands of clients resolve their matters. I have trial experience with cases ranging from Petty Theft to Special Circumstance Murder. I am a successful Trial Attorney with several Not Guilty's in my career.

Since losing family members to cancer, I am a strong advocate for Medical Marijuana and as such, I have a niche' in the defense of Medical Marijuana cases as well as Consulting in the area of Medical Marijuana.
