About The Law Office Of D. Clay Taylor

As attorneys, we wear many hats, but we describe ourselves as trial lawyers. This has been our founder’s livelihood for over 30 years, and he still loves the work. A full-fledged civil trial is rare these days, but courtroom proceedings are just the tip of the iceberg in a successful litigation practice. Cases are won or lost behind the scenes in the research, motions and depositions. At The Law Office of D. Clay Taylor, we pride ourselves on high-energy, high-quality legal legwork to put our clients in position for a victory at trial or favorable negotiations.

Based in Edina, Minnesota, The Law Office of D. Clay Taylor represents individuals and businesses statewide and nationwide. Our founder built a reputation as “The Rep Lawyer” for his advocacy on behalf of commissioned sales representatives. As that industry evolved, our practice branched out into other areas of civil litigation, namely probate and estate disputes and a wide spectrum of business litigation.

A Life In The Law

Practicing law since 1989, our founder, attorney D. Clay Taylor, is a big firm refugee who started his own solo practice over 20 years ago. He is rated AV Preeminent* through Martindale-Hubbell and has been selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers (1999-2006). He was admitted to practice in all state and federal courts of Minnesota, as well as many U.S. District Court jurisdictions across the country and the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. He served many years on the Minnesota State Bar’s Civil Litigation Governing Council. In 2010-11, he was appointed to a task force of the Minnesota State Supreme Court that implemented the very successful Expedited Litigation Track for civil suits under $100,000.

Education and mentoring are a common thread in his career. He has taught trial advocacy since 2008 at Mitchell Hamline School of Law (formerly William Mitchell) and presented many seminars through NITA (National Institute for Trial Advocacy). He has also delivered countless presentations to sales rep groups on their legal rights and remedies.
