From as early as the age of 10, Taylor Simmons recalls wanting to be a lawyer. His enjoyment of reading and writing coupled with his attention to detail make his career as an attorney a perfect fit. His favorite aspect of practicing law is working with clients to analyze their legal issues and to promote the best possible outcome.

Taylor completed an externship with Judge Sanford L. Steelman, Jr. at the North Carolina Court of Appeals.
When not advocating for his clients, Taylor enjoys playing sports including flag football and volleyball, as well as cheering for the Auburn Tigers. He also maintains a lifelong enjoyment of playing the piano and guitar.
