5 Questions with Taylor:
1. Who inspires you?
My mom inspires me. She was a social worker in the Bronx for about 30 years. She treated children, adolescents, and families as a therapist. She was also a substance abuse counselor and worked with people who have been incarcerated in the criminal justice system, as well as those who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS. Her commitment to helping those less fortunate instilled in me a strong sense of justice. I remember her taking me to work where I got to meet the attorneys and judges. I was so excited to see the courtrooms and one judge even invited me to sit on the bench!
2. What drew you to the law?
I have a deep desire to help people and was drawn by the fun of distilling complex topics in easy ways that help my clients. I also love to write, and lawyers write a lot!
3. What aspect of State and Local Tax law do you find most interesting?
Laws are always changing in the 50 states, D.C., and myriad of localities across the United States. I like the challenges that come with these changes, and how my work can help businesses and stimulate the economy. I also love the deep underpinning of Constitutional Law and sinking my teeth into a good constitutional argument. SALT is a fun combination of code-based analysis, digging into definitions and statutory construction, and creative Constitutional interpretation.
4. What is your go-to comfort food?
I love sushi and I am a soup enthusiast, especially homemade chicken soup.
5. What do you do for fun? Any hidden talents?
I love to go to comedy shows and live concerts, travel, play board games and cards with friends, and am interested in finance and real estate podcasts/books and mindfulness meditations. My hidden talent is drawing courtroom caricatures!
