Bio

Jesse Taylor is an aggressive, passionate criminal defense lawyer who fights hard for his clients.

Justice is often hard-won, and Jesse Taylor is a fighter. When it comes to protecting his clients’ rights and achieving justice, there’s no higher calling. Jesse has worked in the Austin criminal defense community for nearly a decade. He has worked with Austin’s top defense attorneys and later founded his own criminal defense law firm. Jesse is a skilled negotiator and a compelling trial attorney with a reputation among both clients and colleagues for being smart, well-prepared, and strategic. To Jesse, defending his clients means holding the government accountable at every step of the case. Whether a speeding ticket, a DWI, or an aggravated robbery, his clients can be confident that Jesse will fight for them like the Constitution depends on it, because it does.

Jesse has experience at every stage of the criminal law process, including pre-arrest investigation, jail release, pretrial negotiation, evidence suppression, and jury trials. He has defended cases ranging from traffic tickets to first-degree felonies in counties all over central Texas. No matter the case, Jesse’s top priority is always protecting his clients and their freedom.

Jesse learned the law here in Austin, where he attended the University of Texas School of Law specifically to become a criminal defense attorney. While in law school, Jesse represented clients on death row and received the Dean’s Achievement Award in Advanced Criminal Defense from Texas legal legend, Dick DeGuerin, before graduating with honors. He considers himself a lucky man to hold the government accountable on behalf of his clients every day.
