Scott Taylor, a native New Yorker, began his legal career at a small commercial litigation firm in Manhattan where he represented businesses in a variety of commercial disputes and lawsuits, including debt collection.
Scott then became a law secretary to a judge in New York City, where he obtained experience in a wide range of legal matters. There he gained insight into how the courts work and how judges think and decide legal disputes.
Scott next joined a mid-sized civil litigation law firm in midtown Manhattan. Scott was a partner at that firm for over 20 years, handling and trying cases in all areas of civil litigation. It was at this firm where Scott began working with Dara Rosenbaum, with whom he ultimately started Rosenbaum & Taylor, P.C.
Scott is proud of Rosenbaum & Taylor’s commitment to providing the highest level of legal representation to all of its clients.
