KATHRYN R. TAYLOR
Ms. Taylor is a native of Northern Virginia and is a graduate of the University of Virginia, where she obtained her Bachelor of Arts with Distinction in History. Prior to law school, she lived in Japan and taught English as a Second Language at a private international school. Upon returning to the States, she became a paralegal, dealing mainly with bankruptcy and personal injury cases. This sparked her interest in a legal career helping clients start over, with the hope of creating new futures despite their past circumstances and experiences.
She received her J.D. from George Mason University School of Law, where she was a Notes Editor for the GMU Civil Rights Law Journal and also served as the National Youth Justice Alliance Coordinator for the VBA Pro Bono Society. During her time at Mason, she also participated in the Domestic Relations Externship & Clinic, assisting pro se litigants in obtaining uncontested divorces.
After graduation she served for two years as the judicial law clerk to the Honorable Penney S. Azcarate of the Circuit Court of Fairfax County. During her clerkship, she spent a significant amount of time working on domestic matters, which reinforced her desire to practice family law.
Currently, she is a member of the Virginia State Bar and the George Mason American Inn of Court. She is also an active member of Fairfax Bar Association, where she is a part of the Family Law Section and also serves as a Board Member of the Young Lawyers Section. Additionally, she serves as the Notes Editor for the National Lawyers Guild Review.
