Howard A. Taylor
The firm is led by Howard A. Taylor, Esquire. A graduate of Temple University and Temple School of Law, class of 1984, Howard is a third generation attorney, following in the footsteps of both his father Jerome, and his maternal grandfather Morris Kolander, himself a highly successful attorney. In fact, Mr. Kolander was one of a select few honored to be chosen to represent the United States as a prosecuting attorney at the Nuremberg Trials following World War II.
Since joining his father’s firm upon graduation, Howard quickly grew the practice, becoming a full partner in 1994. Since his father’s retirement in 2008, Howard has continued the family tradition as a ferocious advocate for the rights of his clients.
Howard prides himself on offering friendly and personal service to each of his clients. Each client is important, and he feels that no case is too big or too small. He takes personal involvement in every case, and in fact, every client who enters his office.
While only licensed in Pennsylvania, Howard has been admitted and successfully tried cases in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, New York, Florida, Ohio and Illinois. He is willing to go wherever he is needed to advocate for his clients.
Growing up, Howard developed an interest in harness racing through his father. That interest turned into a passion as he obtained a license to drive and train in 1980. He was named Delaware Valley Rookie of the Year in that year. He has driven and won as a professional driver at many racetracks throughout the east coast, including the Meadowlands.
That passion has led him to become of the most successful owners in the sport. He has owned many world champion racehorses, and currently has one of the largest stables in the country.
Being a successful attorney, combined with his success in the harness racing industry, it was only natural that Howard became sought after horsemen to represent them in the myriad of legal issues connected to the sport. He has negotiated and prepared contracts for major stallions, negotiated disputes between owners, and handled collection matters. But mostly, Howard has become the most sought after attorney in the country in dealing with administrative matters going against racing commissions.
Howard is also a successful restaurateur, having owned several in the Philadelphia area. He remains the owner of Verdad Restaurant and Tequila Bar in Bryn Mawr, which has a reputation for serving the finest tapas style cuisine on the Main Line.
Finally, Howard is most proud of his daughters, Aubrey, Haley and Lindsey. Beautiful and intelligent, they have inherited their father’s drive and zest for life.
