Before becoming a plaintiff’s attorney, Taylor was an associate with premier civil litigation firm. She was given a tremendous amount of latitude and independence handling wide-ranging catastrophic cases, and as a result, she has litigation experience well beyond her years. Taylor previously handled the defense of cases concerning all areas of personal injury law. She was responsible for the case management and handling these lawsuits from their inception up until the time of trial. Taylor’s litigation experience includes defending and taking hundreds of expert and other depositions, drafting and opposing demurrers and motions including Motions for Summary Judgment, and significant pre-trial preparation including preparing and opposing motions in limine, exhibit and witness lists, and trial briefs.

What our clients are saying...

“When it comes to law firms, they can't get any better than the Ryan Banafshe law firm. They are both very personal, and professional. They make me feel as if I were their only client. In the time that I've been with them never have I felt put off nor unimportant. Not only did I hire a great law firm, I've found a great friend in every sense of the word friend.”

“They were kind, professional, knowledgeable, and always there for me every step of the way. They take care of everything you need and they really cared about my medical treatments. They aren't just stuck on taking care of the legal side of things. I would often get calls asking me how I was doing and if there is anything they could do for me. I honestly felt very well taken care of...every call I made was either taken or I was called back within an acceptable period of time….recommend them to any of my friends or family.”

“Mr. Banafshe represented me in a case over the past year. His staff was highly experienced and professional. Ryan sent someone to my home in Anaheim in order to get my statement. This speaks volume to me. I would highly recommend retaining the Banafshe law firm.”

“Ryan and his staff really know what they are doing and they will either take your call or call you back...The other driver's insurance company was giving me the run around before I hired an attorney, but things went rather smooth after I hired Ryan. I was lucky that Ryan was able to get me a settlement I was pleased with...”

Mr. Banafshe is truly a skilled attorney...I would highly recommend him to my family and friends moving forward.”
