When it was time to revisit an outdated court order, I leaned on Taylor to get us through the process quickly and with the least possible amount of stress. Thanks to his patience and ability to diffuse a room-full of tension, we were able to come to a fair agreement that spared everyone an ugly court battle. He was attentive and informative throughout the process, and did a great job of putting my mind at ease. Looking back, I can truly say that Taylor saved a very special day for our family and I’m forever grateful for everything he did to resolve all of our concerns.
I met Taylor about a year ago for a custody modification issue i had been dealing with for quiet a few years. I had been thru the courts several times with no resolution. I didnt know which way to turn any longer. I contacted his office and made an appointment to meet with him. After speaking with him, i was confident and instantly knew what I had to do. I hired him immediately. He is courteous, honest and professional. He listened, he researched the history and he got me a resolution that i was comfortable with. I am so grateful for Taylor Fontenot.
Great people, they keep in contact and act promptly with real information and answers.
Best of all you feel like a person when you’re in contact and they offer reasonable prices for serious consultation.
It was not a hard decision to use this law firm. Taylor is a great attorney and I am glad I used him for my legal needs.
After researching attorneys for several weeks, we decided to go with Taylor Fontenot and can say it was the best decision we made. Taylor is professional yet down to earth, he is knowledgable and resolved our matter in an amazingly quick amount of time and kept in touch with us throughout the entire process.
I could not ask for better lawyer!! Taylor took time to get to know my fiancée and I and the whole situation. It did not feel like going with a big company to where you feel like you’re just another pay check to them. He was very understanding and definitely worth it. Definitely recommend Taylor to anyone who needs an attorney. Highly recommend!
From the initial consultation, Taylor was very helpful with our situation. Every phone call and email was returned promptly and he was very helpful throughout the entire process. Being out of state, I wasn’t expecting the best service or even an easy outcome but I was wrong. I hope we never need this service again but if we do, we know exactly who to call.
Taylor began his career working for some of Lafayette’s largest and most respected personal injury law firms. In March 2016, he left the world of high-volume legal practice to start his own firm, where he is committed to providing exceptional service to individuals, families and businesses in Acadiana.
