Attorney Profile

Taylor is a Shareholder with KoonsFuller Houston family and divorce law. Board certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, she expertly represents clients from the beginning of a case through trial, settlement, or appeal. Her expertise includes pre and postnuptial agreements, as well as complex property division and highly contentious custody cases. Taylor’s experience and acumen in drafting divorce provisions in shareholder and other operating agreements assures her client and the corresponding entity, new shareholders, and investors by helping protect them from the potential instability that often arises during a divorce.  Further, as an adult-child of divorce, Taylor uniquely understands that divorce constitutes a traumatic event for most individuals and families and that the collateral damage that can result from the same must not be ignored when representing her clients.

Passionate about giving back, Taylor works diligently with her team at KoonsFuller Houston to raise money for local charities and provide pro bono legal services to Houston-area low-income families in need. She directly supports Houston’s Small Steps Nurturing Center, which provides an exemplary early childhood program to assist economically at-risk children and their families.

Taylor continues to be locally and nationally recognized by numerous organizations for her commitment, demonstrated excellence, high integrity, and ethical behavior in her career and community and her expertise in family law, divorce, child custody, and prenups and postnups.

She is a frequent speaker and panelist. Taylor has also co-authored numerous articles and has appeared as a guest on Good Day Houston and KCOH’sThe Ben Hall Hour.” She is also a member of the HBA Gender Fairness Committee and serves on the Advisory Board for the Greater Houston Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

Taylor received a Juris Doctorate from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law in 2010 and was a dean’s scholarship recipient.  She is board certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. A natural competitor (both in and out of the courtroom), Taylor attended Wake Forest University on a full athletic scholarship for women’s soccer.
