Taylor, Emily - Specialty Headshot - Full Res..jpg

Emily Taylor prides herself on providing attentive, aggressive criminal defense for clients in misdemeanor and felony cases. She believes the best defense requires an intimate understanding of the law, and since joining Walker & Taylor, Emily has been a frequent lecturer and instructor to both law enforcement officials and civilians on firearms-carry laws and the use of force and deadly force. She is a frequent contributor to Fox news affiliates and other media outlets on issues of firearms law, and has been cited as an authority on firearms law in national publications.

Emily received her J.D. from Vanderbilt University School of Law in Nashville, Tennessee in 2012. Prior to law school, she earned bachelor of arts degrees in both Anthropology and Psychology from Vanderbilt University. A native Texan, Emily returned from Tennessee to intern with the Harris County District Attorney’s office and, after graduation from law school, was sworn in as an Assistant District Attorney for Galveston County, Texas. As an Assistant District Attorney she took a broad range of felony and misdemeanor cases to trial in front of judges and juries, and was responsible for grand jury presentations, motions and hearings, and plea negotiations. She provides an insider’s perspective into the Texas criminal justice system, particularly into cases involving gun owners and claims of self-defense.
