Best Lawyers

Woodruff Family Law Group Attorney, Taylor D. Clay has been practicing family law since 2012. Taylor was also certified by the NC Bar as a Family Law Specialist in 2018. Currently, Taylor focuses on divorce and child custody cases within family law.

“I am aggressive when it comes to advocating for my client. However, I also feel like I can advise my client when to come to a reasonable settlement that is in the best interests of all parties involved.”

When it comes to the issue of child custody, Taylor stays focused on what is in the best interest of the child.

We focus on that aspect, plus any other aspect of the child’s life, including health, education, social interaction, religion and any other aspect that is important to my client, from a parent’s perspective. Additionally, I work together with my client on a custody schedule for both my client and the other parent, if that parent is fit to have time with the child. In some cases, we are able to work out an entire custody schedule without the involvement of the court. However, in other cases, we seek the assistance of the court to order a custodial schedule.

Taylor fits in well with six other savvy attorneys whom each bring experience, insight, and diligence to work on each client’s behalf.

With seven family law attorneys, each of us has something of value that we bring to the table every single day. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be here. We are here to help better our clients’ lives. I look at my role as working hard for my clients and helping them get through one of the most difficult times in their lives. I am here to show empathy for their situation, but to also take the emotion out of the situation in order to resolve it in the most efficient way possible.
