Senior Attorney
  • Profile

Lucy Rose Taylor's job is to make a client’s stressful time as peaceful and easy as possible, and she takes this role seriously. Lucy’s life and work experience enable her to provide both empathic and focused legal services to her clients.

Lucy dove into family law because she loves listening to her clients’ stories and is dedicated to working with clients to identify the best path for them—whether that’s negotiation, litigation, or merely advice. She believes that by working collaboratively with a lawyer, a client can truly find the new beginning they are seeking.

Education & Humanitarian Work

Lucy is a graduate from University of California, Hastings College of the Law, where she proudly received the Wiley W. Manuel Certificate for Pro Bono Legal Services, the Extraordinary Contribution in Public Interest Award, and a Certificate in Child Advocacy for contributing more than two years of service to indigent youth clients during her time in law school.

During law school, Lucy advocated for women and transgender prisoners with the Legal Aid Society of New York. She spent a year completing guardianships and immigration filings, as well as providing academic advocacy for young people at Legal Services for Children.

Lucy continued advocating for young people with Young Minds Advocacy, a non-profit focused on ensuring young people have access to mental healthcare. She spent her last year in law school working for Bay Area Legal Aid, where she helped young people transition from the delinquency and dependency systems to independent and fulfilling lives.

Lucy’s experience with underserved youth communities uniquely qualifies her to focus on children as the most delicate element of any family law matter. While understanding that family conflict can be traumatic for children, she is also experienced in helping parents mitigate this trauma as a thoughtful and solution-oriented advocate.

Prior Professional Experience

After graduating with a B.A. from UC Santa Cruz, Lucy was a paralegal focused on California prison reform. It was in this role that Lucy learned the true impact the law can have on personal lives. She worked directly with clients facing enormous obstacles and witnessed legal advocacy shape real change.

Personal Life

While not serving her clients, Lucy enjoys biking, cooking, painting, and volunteering her advocacy efforts to California prisoners.
