Brian J. Taylor, Attorney | KingSpry

Brian J. Taylor

When Brian J. Taylor decided to teach his two young daughters about civic responsibility and the voting process, he didn’t just sit them down to a lecture. He gave them each a stack of fliers, and together, the family canvassed the neighborhood on behalf of a fellow committee member who was running for office. He approaches his legal practice the same way, always taking the extra step, whether it is advocating for a client, or mentoring a colleague on some aspect of the law.

Mr. Taylor is senior counsel with KingSpry, concentrating his practice in the areas of litigation, alternative dispute resolution, education, employment and immigration law.  Prior to practicing law, he interned with the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.

In recent years, he has performed pro bono work for several organizations including the Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent, the Consumer Bankruptcy Assistance Program, and the Support Center for Child Advocacy.

Attorney Taylor is an arbitrator for Chester County Court of Common Pleas, and an adjunct professor of law at Eastern and Widener Universities, and he has twice been nominated as Teacher of the Year. He is a former Historical Commissioner and a member of the Planning Commission for East Whiteland Township, as well as a Chester County Committeeman. Recently, he served on the grants committee of The Foundation at Great Valley, and has served as an article reviewer for the American Business Law Journal.

Mr. Taylor is also a published author and illustrator of the novella “Weight of the Moon” (2006).

He earned his Juris Doctorate from Temple University School of Law. He holds a B.A. in political science and economics from Franklin & Marshall College, and also completed a graduate level management program at Wharton School of Business.
