Mr. Taylor’s firm of DUI attorneys is also listed in the prestigious Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers. It is the only firm of DUI defense lawyers approved by the California State Bar to provide continuing education to the legal profession, and has been featured in the American Bar Association Journal for its unique specialization, experience and staff of former law enforcement officials. California Lawyer magazine (for members of the California State Bar) observed in a May 2009 expose article on DUI attorneys:
“Defendants often get from their lawyers what they pay for. At the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor…blood and urine samples are routinely reanalyzed; breathalyzer maintenance, calibration and administration are investigated; and sometimes even the scene of an arrest is revisited. Taylor’s firm also boasts a support staff that includes a forensic toxicologist who once did DUI testing for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s crime lab, a former hearing officer for the DMV, and a former police officer who was on the Santa Ana police department’s DUI task force. That’s a far cry from the firms where lawyers, by their own admission, do the same thing over and over again.”
