Attorney Biography

A former Marine and graduate of the University of California at Berkeley (1966) and the UCLA School of Law (1969), Lawrence Eric Taylor served as deputy public defender and deputy district attorney in Los Angeles before entering private practice.

He was the trial judge's legal advisor in People vs Charles Manson, was Supreme Court counsel in the Onion Field murder case and was retained by the Attorney General of Montana as an independent Special Prosecutor to conduct a one-year grand jury probe of governmental corruption.

Turning to teaching, Mr. Taylor served on the faculty of Gonzaga University School of Law, where he was voted Professor of the Year, was invited to be Visiting Professor at Pepperdine University Law School, and was finally appointed Fulbright Professor of Law at Osaka University in Japan.

With over 33 years of experience, Lawrence Taylor is the author of over thirty articles and 12 books, including the standard text on DUI / DWI litigation, Drunk Driving Defense, 7th edition (N.Y.: Aspen Law and Business) and California Drunk Driving Defense, 4th edition (St. Paul, MN: West Publishing). He is one of only 5 DUI attorneys in California who is Board-certified as a DUI defense specialist.
