As a small business owner with a Master in Business and law degree, I successfully run a private practice located in heart of Louisville and virtually, easily accessible to all. I litigate a variety of cases, civil and criminal, representing plaintiffs, defendants and sometimes victims. I am a contract arbitrator, a certified mediator with the KY Administrative Office of the Courts, a former Family Court guardian ad litem. I am a writer, who also researches and drafts pleadings and appellate briefs for other attorneys outside of my practice.
I am running to bring common sense and real-life experience to the courthouse. As the oldest of the 8 children born to Bonnie & Charles Taylor a social worker and a union electrician, I am also a small business owner, a mother of one grown sone, a dedicated sole guardian of my 7-year-old, and a Lifetime Louisvillian. I can relate to every day struggles.
COMMITTED TO SERVICE.
Serving my community here in Jefferson County is something instilled in me from the time I was a young girl by my church & family. I continued that in my undergraduate education at Berea College and transcends to my current practice. Being on the bench is more than just a job to me. I promise never to treat it as such!
For over two decades, I have been a volunteer, motivational speaker & mentor to youth groups and troubled teens, repeatedly being awarded with JCPS Champion for Kids awards. I served as a volunteer mediator for family court for many years and offered pro bono workshops frequently.
Prior to running for this position, I founded Urban Mediation Group to address lack of diversity and access for the indigent and working families. Statistics show the major success of mediation being used to resolve issues in litigation and free the dockets. Similarly, years ago, I ran a supervised visitation and exchange center, upon witnessing the great unmet need of the families and children involved in court.
I will bring the same hard work, innovation and desire to seek ways to improve access to the justice system for all.
Most importantly, COMMITTED TO JUSTICE.
Applying the law equally and fairly is a must. Exhibiting patience, being thorough and using sound judgment is also. As a single parent for quite some time, I have learned to judiciously balance those attributes while being able to be tough and knowing when alternative consequences may be warranted or more effective.
I bring a love for people, a passion for the law and desire for justice always with me on the campaign trail and to the bench in November. I am always available for questions and to supplement you with more information, if desired.
