“It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our attorney and friend Austin Taylor. Throughout his legal career, Austin devoted himself to representing clients stricken with cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Austin was an incredible advocate who cared deeply for his clients and their devastated families. He is remembered by many for his genuine kindness and thoughtfulness, as well as his generous character. More important to him than his career as an attorney, Austin was devoted to his family and friends. He was a dedicated and loving husband, father, son, and friend. Austin’s legacy and loving spirit live on in all those who knew him.”
– The Lanier Law Firm
