Attorney William Taylor began the path towards his legal career back at Bear Creek High School in Lakewood, CO, where competing in mock trial for four years helped him to realize his passion for litigation. There was no looking back after that, where even as an undergrad at Boise State University he was the Vice President of Pre-Law Society, helping students prepare for law school.
After leaving Colorado for his undergraduate degree, William returned to attend law school at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. During this time William made his mark at DU, throwing himself into many of the student organizations to gain as much experience and exposure to the law as possible. William was the Editor-in-Chief of the Sports & Entertainment Law Journal and President of the Sports & Entertainment Law Society, and also competed on the MLB Arbitration and NBA Negotiation Teams. He was also the Director of Judges for the Student Trial Lawyers Association, the Vice President of Judge Recruitment for the Moot Court Board, and an Assistant Coach for the University of Denver’s undergraduate mock trial team. William has since taken over as the Head Coach for DU’s undergraduate mock trial team.
William’s incredible involvement in student organizations did not prevent him from showing his academic prowess, however, graduating with the distinct recognition of Order of the Coif, an honorary scholastic society that is nationally recognized amongst law schools for those who graduate in the top 10% of their class. Additionally, in his third year of law school, William worked in a year-long clinic where he devoted an average of 35 hours of work per week for his clients. He was awarded with the Student Attorney of the Year Award for his dedication to his clients and his legal prowess over the course of the year.
William’s work at Thomas & Associates began as a law clerk following his first year of law school, where his first case was a particularly complex domestic matter on its third appeal.

He was also able to participate in countless criminal, civil, and domestic trials, as he assisted the attorneys with legal research, trial preparation, and the like.
