Biography

Taylor is a native Memphian and graduated with honors from the University of Memphis for both her bachelor’s degree and law degree. Taylor has focused her work on family-related matters since 2015. Taylor concentrates her practice in the areas of divorce, alimony, child custody and support, dependency and neglect, termination of parental rights, adoption, paternity/parentage, international custody and property disputes, high asset divorces, orders of protection, prenuptial agreements, and post-divorce matters. Taylor has experience at the trial and appellate level and also handles a wide range of other civil matters in Tennessee, including, contractual, probate and trust, and other general litigation matters.

Taylor's love for research is what drove her to law school, where she served as Research Editor on the Senior Editorial Board of the University of Memphis Law Review, Research Assistant to Professor Andrew J. McClurg, Law Clerk to the Honorable Diane K. Vescovo of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee, and Student Attorney in the Child and Family Litigation Clinic. During law school, Taylor's Student Note, Taylor Oyaas, Reefer Madness: How Tennessee Can Provide Cannabis Oil Patients Protection from Workplace Discrimination, 47 U. Mem. L. Rev. 935 (2017), was published in Volume 47 of the University of Memphis Law Review. Taylor's publication has received honors and was favorably relied upon by the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut in Noffisinger v. SSC Niantic Operating Co., 273 F. Supp. 3d 326 (D. Conn. 2017). Noffisinger has become a landmark case in many states across the country on this issue of law.

Taylor has continued to research and work on improving policy, where the law remains unclear or should be changed.
