Katherine L. Taylor is the founder of Taylor Legal. Her law firm represents business owners and property owners in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area.

Katherine’s legal career began at Whiteford, Taylor and Preston in the Commercial Litigation Department of the Baltimore Law Firm. She eventually left Big Law to work in Howard County as a Senior Assistant County Solicitor where she spent 10 years representing Howard County government agencies, boards, and departments.

In 2004, Katherine started Taylor Legal, where she continues to enjoy working with business owners to help them protect the businesses they created.
